How to Salvage Damaged Floors
Host: Hey Clean House Fans here is a tip from Go to a Guy, Matt Iceman.
Matt, help me out buddy. You got to let me know what I can do with really damaged hardwood floors.
Matt: Well if they are really damaged like beyond repair and you do not want to chill out the money to replace them, there is still a solution painting them. If you are going to paint hardwood floors there are 3 steps to make sure it comes out great. The first is cleaning you really need to give it a good scrubbing that means using Trisodium phosphate which is degreaser that gets out all the dirt and grain that has been pounded into the floor as over the years. Second preparing the floor with acetone this breaks down any varnish that has been used over the years as well as making the floors more perished to accept the paint which is the key step. You can not use any standard painting you would use on the wall. You need specific floor paints that are Acrylic base to get a great result, two coats separated by 24 hours of drying time and your damaged floors will look brand-new.
