When hardwood floors are first installed, they are coated with a urethane base coat that produces both their exceptional shine and long lifespan. Very small flakes of aluminum oxide contained in the coating add further stability to the wood and also lengthen the amount of time before the surface glow begins to dim.
However, any finish, no matter how durable, will eventually suffer from continuous exposure to foot traffic and contaminates that wear away the top layer. This erosion of the surface coating permits moisture to permeate the hardwood flooring and that results in deterioration of the wood. The ideal and most practical solution is to remove the worn, damaged finish by sanding, and then replace it with an entirely new surface coat.
