Many schools, sporting clubs and community halls spend tens of thousands of dollars having their timber floors sanded and polished to bring back to new. Fast forward two or three months and many have unsightly scratches and scuffs from furniture being moved around and grit on the floor from foot traffic.
An appropriate care and maintenance program will not only protect these floors but also extend the life of the floor before any re-coating or re-sanding needs to be done. Consider these costs? A typical basketball court is around 600 square metres. To sand and polish you are looking at around $35 per square metre. Thats is a $21000 investment to bring them up to new again. That is a significant amount of money and if you don't look after them you could be up for re-coat or re-sand in just a few years.
