The Top Benefits of Floor Sanding of Hardwood Floor
1.Having wooden floor in your house just means relatively lesser amount of expenses and maintenance.
 However, you would have to do something called floor sanding periodically in order to ensure that the wooden floor remains sleek and level. There're a lot of advantages of this technique, affecting both functions and beauty of the floor.

2.The aesthetical benefits of floor sanding make the wooden floor appear newer and smoother.
This is as the method scraps off the old layer at the top and brings forth the new layer from below.
And, the new layer is capable of soaking up stains and looks fresh for a long time, until the procedure
needs to be repeated the next time.

3.The wooden flooring in your house is always getting treated with wear and tear including scratches and also stains. Even though stains could be borne for a certain period of time, but if there're dents and  scratches you have to get the floor sanded. Using this procedure it would be possible to keep it clean.

4.Along with enhancing the appearance of the floor, sanding would also freshen up the entire room.
 This also involves improving the lighting in the room. Light gets spread correctly, while the ambience of the entire room improves. And, good ambience in your rooms would always help you in feeling good.

5.The advantages of floor sanding also extend to several practical aspects. This technique
of maintenance also enables you to varnish or stain the newly formed top of the floor. The surface
can be stained correctly so that it may bear the regular wear and tear. The procedure also makes the floor even.Therefore, you can set the furniture and other accessories safely around the room.

1. Quebracho - From the Spanish “quebrar hacha,” which literally means

“axe breaker.” Aptly named, wood in the Schinopsis genus is among the

heaviest and hardest in the world.

2. Lignum Vitae -Widely accepted as the hardest wood in the world–this

wood has been listed as an endangered species and is listed in CITES.

Consider Verawood as a very close substitute.

3. Gidgee - This Australian endemic is both very heavy and very strong.

Some pieces are dark enough to be used as an ebony substitute: one that’s

even harder than the original article.

4. Snakewood - It’s easy to see what makes Snakewood so unique–its patterns

and markings resemble the skin of a snake. Limited supply and high demand

make this one of the most expensive woods on eart.

5. Verawood - Sometimes called Argentine Lignum Vitae, this wood is a gem:

inexpensive, great olive-green color, beautiful feathery grain pattern, and

it takes a great natural polish on the lathe.

6. Camelthorn - Formerly classified as a member of the Acacia genus, this

south African hardwood is a tough customer. The wood is stubbornly hard,

and the tree is protected by giant sharp thorns.

7. African Blackwood - In some parts of the world, this wood has achieved

an almost legendary status. Historical evidence points to this wood

(rather than Diospyros spp.) being the original “ebony.”

8. Black Ironwood - Pieces are very seldom seen for sale, as this tree is

too small to produce commercially viable lumber. Like the unrelated

Desert Ironwood, Black Ironwood is an excellent choice for small

turning projects.

9. Katalox / Wamara - Some pieces can be just about a dark as true ebony,

while others are a more reddish brown with black streaks. So much depth

in the Swartzia genus, there’s something for everyone!

10. Cebil- Also known as Curupay or by the exaggerated name Patagonian

Rosewood, Cebil is not a true rosewood. It has a highly variable streaked

appearance not too unlike Goncalo Alves.
