What Drives Me Crazy About Most Wood Floors

Posted on: November 14th, 2011 by admin No Comments

I was recently walking through a Whole Foods and I couldn’t concentrate on finding all the items on my shopping list. All I could do is obsess about the floor beneath my feet. This location had spent a lot of money to install high quality wood floors. But instead of looking beautiful and adding to the atmosphere they were trying to create, the floors were dull and lifeless. I couldn’t concentrate on anything else. All I could see was a beautiful floor dying to be free. I had the urge to bring my equipment to the store and sand off all the goop they had been using to clean the floor and strip it back down to it’s beautiful, natural hardwood finish. Plus give the staff a stern lecture on how to properly care for one of the most important pieces of real estate in the store. Unfortunately this is an all too common occurence for me. It happens everywhere. A local restaurant, a friends house, a hotel lobby, the supermarket, even a small fitness center recently. The issue is always the same – good money is spent on a beautiful wood floor and then it’s not taken care of. The good news is that in all of these cases, with the right tools, equipment and expertise, we (my company Vintage Floors) can restore it back to its beautiful, original finish. The bad news is that a lot of people don’t even realize that they have a gorgeous wood floor underneath the gunk, buildup, scratches, etc. they’ve accumulated over the years by not taking proper care of it. It drives me crazy. I guess it’s one of the hazards of being in this business and “knowing better”. So take a look at your wood floor and if it isn’t “warm”, “inviting”, and “beautiful”, then call me immediately so we can give it the TLC it desperately needs. You will make my day by allowing us to bring life back to another neglected wood floor. – Vintage Floors, 954-983-6944
