The Beginner’s Guide to Wood Floor Buffing

Wood floor buffing is a highly technical process that requires specialised equipment. For the best results, call in the experts!

What Is Wood Floor Buffing?

If your wooden flooring has relatively minor scratches and superficial damage, wood floor buffing may be a better option than sanding. While it’s not suitable for major scratches, it can restore your floor’s smooth finish without too much disruption.

The process involves the use of a buffer, which is a specialised machine that rotates in a similar way to a sander. Designed to remove localised areas of sealant, a buffer is great for quick fixes where the damage isn’t too severe.

When Is Floor Buffing the Best Option?

Wood floor buffing is the best option if you’re looking for a way to treat a localised area with superficial scratches. It’s quicker, cheaper and less disruptive than sanding, as it involves removing only a very thin layer of wood.

What Does Buffing a Wood Floor Involve?

The process begins with a thorough cleaning of the entire floor. Once that’s complete, any wax finish on the flooring is removed. The floor may then be cleaned again before the buffing machine is introduced.

Most buffers spin a polish pad in a clockwise direction, which means professionals usually buff from left to right. Once any imperfections are removed, another layer of sealant is applied.

How Much Does Wood Floor Buffing Cost?

The price of any wood floor buffing service relies on a number of factors, including the size of the space, the type of wood, the type of sealant and the condition of the floor. A professional will need to inspect the floor in person before providing an accurate estimate.
Should you buff wood floors?
Buffing is mainly used to rectify imperfections and damage to the sealant layers of hardwood floors. If the wood beneath is damaged, sanding is the best option.
Can buffing a wood floor remove scratches?
Buffing the outer layer of a wooden floor can smooth scratched areas, remove excess wax and deliver a smooth overall finish. But buffing is only suitable for superficial scratches.
Do you buff a floor when it’s wet or dry?
A floor must be completely dry and clean before professionals will begin the buffing process. Buffing a damp floor can cause severe damage to the wood beneath the sealant layer.
What is the difference between buffing and polishing?
For a brushed or lined finish, professionals will usually polish the floor. If a shinier finish is required, the buffing method is the most effective.
How do you buff a wooden floor by hand?
Some people use lemon juice, water and a microfibre cloth. However, we believe that paying a professional to buff your floor will prolong its life and save you money in the long run.

Excellent, clean and fast service. They sanded the floors perfectly, beautifully stained the boards and varnished to an extremely professional standard, and cleaned up very well. Couldn’t have been a better service from Wooden Flooring Experts, especially as they were fixing a job that another company had performed very badly.

We used Wooden Flooring Experts to sand all of our original + damaged floorboards. They were super responsive and great to deal with during the process of choosing them, and when they were doing the job they always arrived on time and communicated throughout. We couldn't recommend these guys more if you needed expert floor sanding, amazing!

Great experience with the team at Wooden Flooring Experts. They arrived early and worked hard to get our floors done quickly and perfectly. We had a lot of gaps to be filled and lots of small corners which made this hard, but they managed to get it done! The difference between before and after is amazing.
