Are you familiar with the saying “Mend it, don’t end it?” Not only would these words be applicable to life and relationships, but it can also be applied when dealing with dilemmas on everyday objects, such as wood furniture, carpet and floors.
With carpeting, you can restore your carpets to almost new looking by hiring a good carpet cleaning company. If they are too far gone and are not coming as clean as you like from cleaning, it might be time to consider replacing or switching to laminate or hardwood, f you prefer that look.
Sometimes, when we see our wooden floors or furniture starting to look ugly, worn out, and dull, it’s inevitable that some of us will prioritize getting rid of the unpleasant appearance as fast as we can; some of us might immediately jump to what seemingly is the quickest means to lose sight of an ugly floor – to have it replaced (if it’s a piece of furniture, have it thrown out and buy a new one).
In reality, replacement of your shabby-looking wooden items may not be the best (not even the quickest) thing to do to fix the problem. There are many advantages you can gain if you consider refinishing instead.
Think about this – especially if you are dealing with unsightly wooden floors – floor replacement calls for a total removal of your current flooring and installment of a new one. This could take at least several days to be completed. It would be messy, stressful, and definitely costly since you will be paying for the floor removal, too. Wood refinishing companies often deal with the reparation and restoration during refinishing jobs.
If you are thinking of replacing an old wooden furniture, on the other hand, think about the rarity of this old furniture piece of yours. If it is a really old piece, chances are, you would not find a piece of the same quality or design again. Or, keep in mind that antique pieces possess a natural charm and can be quite valuable. Having them preserved and restored might actually be a good move if you’re looking for genuine value.
Another reason it will be better to refinish than replace your wooden items is that refinishing and restoration would be the better choice for the planet. Once you save and make use of what you already have, you can help in reducing the serious waste problem our world is facing today.
