Wood floors can be a wonderful addition to most any home, but many times they don't really weather the heavy traffic that comes with a family home all that well. To help protect floors from this kind of wear and tear, homeowners often turn to painting the floors. However, while the floors may be protected for a while, the paint itself can suffer some damage. Protecting painted floors isn't all that difficult, particularly if you use one of these methods.
In the event that your floor becomes too damaged over time, you may need to refinish it. Do not be afraid of this step since it can actually help prolong the life of your flooring. However, keep in mind that while this task may be necessary periodically, it should only be undertaken once or every three or four years. That being said, in the event that you feel your floor really needs the help, go ahead and do it.
