Gymnasium / Commercial Floor Maintenance & Refinishing
We are often asked how often the wood floors in a commercial space or a gymnasium should have attention.
Minnesota winters are very hard of hardwood floors. On very high traffic wood flooring such as those in gyms, yoga studios, racquetball courts, churches, retail building etc, the finish wears through 1-2 layers per year. So ideally, it is best to have a maintenance recoating done on these floors one time per year. By keeping up with the maintenance on these types of hardwood floors, you can avoid the need to ever have to refinish them. We are able to buff and recoat most commercial floors in just one day and we have finishes that dry in as little as an hour. So we are often times able to recoat the floors at closing and have them dried and ready to be walked on by opening the following day, which avoids any downtime on the floors. Below is a before and after picture of a gym floor we recently did here in the Twin Cities.
