When to move your refrigerator over a wood floor

Posted on October 25, 2012 at 10:05 AM Comments comments (2)

When it comes to moving a refrigerator over a wood floor, never roll it out without something under it, or else you'll see track marks indented in your  wood floor.  Always use something like masonite, to roll on to keep your wood floors safe.  You can get masonite at your local home improvement store for around 10 dollars and you can score it with a knife and break it, to cut it up for your needs. 

The only time to roll a refrigerator out of it's place without masonite, would be over tile or a laminate floor, but never over a wood floor. 10 dollars can save you hundreds of dollars to repair your floors!

5 steps to repairing a sports floor over sleepers

Posted on July 29, 2012 at 5:05 PM Comments comments (0)

The 5 steps to repairing a water damaged sportsfloor over padded sleepers are:

1.   If you see cupping in wood floors, it usually means moisture is coming up from beneath the wood flooring.   So, the number one thing to do is to moisture test the surrounding of water damaged floor and to see how much damage there is.  After that, you  figure which cost of repairs to pursue (from least costly repair to the more costly repair). ( Assuming you are doing it the correct way, then onto step 2.)

2.  Once you figure out how much flooring to pull out, go rent some blowers from Home Depot,  each blowers should cost 19 dollars per day.  For an area about 400 sq.ft. you should have 3-4 blowers.  Have blowers pointed at wood floors and rotate blowers everyday to circulate air (depending on the savarity of water damage).

3.  Pick the correct method to fix the floor when installing new wood flooring, because you might have to stagger end joints of wood flooring, and resplining the grove to go the opposite direction.

4.  Use filling, like Woodwise filler and trowel fill the bad areas.

5.  And lastly, sand down the floor the same way when first done, and apply extra coats of finish to catch up on the depth of finish (3-4 coats) like what it was before water damage.

And, do what ever it takes to do the best job possible for good results, even if it takes longer on a tight schedule!

November 23rd, 2011: Is a cork floor hard to install, and how to take care of it?

Posted on November 24, 2011 at 1:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Is cork flooring difficult to install?  No, but you need to take your time when installing it because it's fragile! Cork is not hard like laminate floors, it's soft and any edge will break or dent if bumped into something.  You need to look at every piece before you install it and use finesse when locking it into place.  Once it's lock into place, and damaged free before install, the floor transform into a beautiful, colorful, rich looking, elegant floor, and is soft on the feet. Cork will dent an scratch if not taken care of so be smart  and use precaution when using the floor. In otherwords, don't  throw heavy things on it! 

As far as affordabililty, cork can be expensive and is generally for the more expensive homes use, like a home gym floor with a fabulous old world rich look appearance. You would rarely see this floor in a typical home because it needs special attention compared to a laminate, ceramic, and carpet floor.

For maintenace, a quick vacuum or a dry swifter to pick up debri off the floor, then use mild soap & water with a rung out sponge mop.  Don't use lots of water on the floor so make sure it's rung out good. Or, instead of sponge mop, use the Bona Kemi floor cleaner for wood floors and slightly damp mop the floor with their microfiber mop. Rememer, don't mop you cork floor with lots of water!

Wow, we are done with the showroom!  It has been 6 months to get it where it is today.  We've been busy installing hardwood floors, and all the spare time we had was spent to get this finished.  The last thing done for Excellent Floors showroom, was to bring in hundreds of wood flooring samples and displaying them.  We don't have room to show every manufacture, but we are displaying known  wood flooring that works in our dry climate.  Don't forget, we can get about anything out there, so if you know the Manufacture name and item number, let me know and I get it for you.  I'm like a detective of  hardwood flooring. Make an appointment or call me at (702) 227-9985 and I will try to make your questions, answered!  Also, check out the videos to see what we are all about.  It's something I do for fun, so don't get critical on my camara action, it's my own style.

Wow, I'm finally done putting the new showroom together!  It took some time putting the floors down, basing it, painting a few walls, and putting the racks with samples in.  What made it hard was the time spent after work to get it done.  It's ready to use!  My next project will be to work on my website and advertising.  This is a never ending project!

My sister just informed me that my spelling is aweful and that I should correct it before you get the wrong impression that I'm ignorant and a country bunken.  I got to admit my spelling is bad!  And, I do talk a bit funny too, as you can tell in my videos,  but hey,..you probably feel better knowing that someone else is just as bad as you are and even worse!  That's me, I'm the confidence booster.  Believe me, it's just an act!  I do have a brain.  I'm almost 30 and I have to be on my toes to compete with all the people out there.  The best quality I have is that my word is my word... and that I will always give you my best and take the high road.  That is why, I'm confident in myself, regardless of my flaws in grammmer and spelling, or anything else.  My word is all I got and that's what's important to me!

Spring is here and I'm loving it!  I've been shooting video on my camara and I'm having a blast adding this to my web page.  Now you can see us in action!  Infact, some of the videos are funny for those who know me.  I'm hoping to get better as time goes on, as far as, directing the video and it's contents.
