I'm so glad to be back to my regularly scheduled program. Last week we had our floors polished and had been to lazy to reconnect the computer. I asked/begged my husband to do it for me, until I finally did it myself this morning at 6:00 a.m. Here are some before pictures of our floors. These floors were once mirror shiny. You can see, especially in high traffic areas (like our kitchen), how dull they look.
Here's another dull spot.
They spot treat any holes or imperfections. They then use the polishing machine with another polishing liquid. Here you can see where he has placed the liquid. Then they put a sealer and then buff the floors to get maximum shine.
I took these pictures this morning and the sun hasn't really come out yet, so you can't get the whole effect. (I'll update the pictures later today). This is the same spot as the first picture.
The difference is huge. The house feels so much cleaner. The floors feel brand new again. We had this process done 8 years ago and it should really be done every 3 years. The company was great and a team of 3-4 guys worked for 12 hours straight. It was a long day. I took advantage that I was home and organized papers in our office and cleaned out those corners in the house you never get to. It feels so good to cross something off the list.
