|Whitewashed Hardwood Floors
Whitewashed hardwood floors are made through the process of applying a whitewash, to an unfinished or sanded wood floor surface. It can be applied with a painting roller and is left as is, or excess amounts can be removed with a damp rag after a few minutes.
Whitewashed hardwood floors have a unique and distinct country appearance. The grain and color of the wood typically show through the whitewash resulting in a soft hazy layer that appears rustic.
Whitewashed surfaces are alkaline in nature making it resistant to the growth of mold and mildew as well as germs. Additionally, a whitewashed surface creates the illusion of making rooms appear larger than they are and also absorbs heat.
Many homeowners are concerned with the maintenance aspects of whitewashed hardwood floors. A simple application of a polyurethane sealer found in the Rejuvenate Home Surface Renewer System for Hardwood Floors, will make cleaning a lot easier. It is a complete kit that seals and protects the look of whitewashed surfaces and keeps it clean for years to come. It includes the sealer, protectant, a concentrated cleaner, for everyday use, along with microfiber applicators which provide a soft tool that will clean floors effectively without scratching.
You can definitely update the look of any aged hardwood floor and keep it looking that way for a very long time.
