Acacia hardwood flooring can add big capital to your home. Wooden floors are also easier to maintain than carpeting; if you play something on hardwood it can be easily wiped up with a cloth, while it can discolor the carpet. If you have original wood floors in your home can be beautifully renovated.

Instructions

Preparations

Remove all furniture, carpets and window treatments from the room where you will recondition the floors. Curtains stick to dust and particles circulating in the air and it are important in the final process that the room be free of dust. Rent a grinder from your local hardware store. Grinding your acacia hardwood flooring is a mandatory step as it removes existing paint and smooth’s any flaws in the floor. You need a level slip, as it covers a larger area at one time than a hand slip would. The hand sander will be used for areas that are difficult to reach, such as corners and near walls. So you will also need to buy one of them as well as sandpaper for it, if you don’t already have one.

You also need sandpaper for flat sanding. These come in round discs that stick to the bottom of the grinder. You will need several packages of three different grouts, 36, 50 and 80. The lower the number of sandpaper, the coarser it is. Choose polyurethane finishing, or varnish. Varnish comes in several different colors, so think about how light or dark you want your acacia hardwood flooring to be. You will also need an applicator, as well as a removable broom handle to screw in the applicator.
