Couples who have invested in hardwood flooring can breathe new life into it by sanding it as well as undertaking other DIY tasks.
An article in the Shropshire Star suggested several ways for homeowners to brighten up their abodes during the cold winter months, with sanding wood surfaces one step people can take.
The source stated that sanding a wooden floor is not a quick task but doing it properly can have a dramatic impact on the atmosphere in the room.
"You won't get a good finish if you don't sand thoroughly, so put your back into it and you'll benefit in more ways than one," the newspaper added.
When it comes to cleaning a wooden floor, it is important to use dedicated products rather than creating home remedies, as the latter can actually do more harm than good.
Bruce Johnson, a DIY expert and author, told abc7 News that couples should be safe rather than sorry and use specific cleaning products which are tried and tested.
