Royal Wood Floors Helps Milwaukee Home Owners Understand Important Aspects of Re-coating Hard Wood Floors

beautiful living room hard wood floor

Engineered hard wood floors

cleaning hard wood floors

Milwaukee hard wood floor company educates home owners on important things related to re-coating their hard wood floors and more.

MILWAUKEE, WI, UNITED STATES, May 3, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Royal Wood Floors specializes in hard wood floor refinishing and installing hard wood floors in the greater Milwaukee area and has been highly successful for over 15 years. “After servicing or installing a new floor, we make a point of providing the following as a special series of tips for every customer in order to ensure that their floors are protected and provide that stunning hard wood beauty for as long as possible”, says Keith Allman who owns Royal Wood Floors. He continues to say, “there are a variety of problems that can affect the beauty and life of hard wood floors and once these are isolated they can be handled properly so that the hard wood lasts for years the way it should”. “We feel that by educating the home owner they can be better equipped to tackle a project themselves or will know what to ask and expect when working with professionals”, he ends.

Whether you are a home owner that wants to refinish your own hard wood floors to bring back its natural shine and beauty or you are looking at having a professional flooring company do the work, it’s important to understand these important facts. This way, your hard wood floor project will go as smooth and successful as possible.

Important Notes on Hard Wood Floor Re-coating
May contractors remind hard wood floor owners as well as customers that their hard wood floors may be due for a re-coat. It’s important to understand that a floor that has been simply re-coated, will not look the same as it would if it was completely re-sanded first. Buff & Re-coats are definitely necessary to keeping a hard wood floor shining and looking naturally beautiful. When you are looking at doing a re-coat of your floors you will want to keep the following in mind. Every wood flooring professional will want to fully inspect your hard wood floors so that they can determine the correct steps of action necessary to bringing that beautiful luster back in the wood. If the finish is worn tro the point that the color of the wood is not uniform or that bare wood is exposed, completely re-sanding and finishing the floor will actually be necessary. If the wear is not that severe, the floor can be mechanically abraded and re-coated, or a chemical re-coating method can be used.

It is important to know what has been used on the floor prior and that the flooring professionals are aware of what has been done to maintain the floor to this point. This helps them understand more about the maintenance and history. It is very important to understand what the existing finish of the floor is. If you would like to check for varnish or shellac, scratch the surface of the floor in an inconspicuous place with a coin or other sharp object. If the finish flakes, it is probably shellac or varnish. These types of finishes will need to be re-sanded. If you would like to check for wax, there are other methods. You can use a small amount of mineral spirits on a clean white rag in an area that has not been exposed to high traffic. If a slight yellow or brown color appears on the rag, then wax is probably present. You can use a piece of screen or sand paper to lightly abrade the floor. If residue balls up, then it is a wax based product that was used before. You can also put 2 drops of water on the floor. If white spots appear after about 10 minutes, again, the finish is most likely wax. The white spots can be removed by gently rubbing them with a soft cloth or synthetic pad dampened with wax.

If wax, shellac or varnish, are not present on the floor, most likely the finish can be re-coated over with a regular surface finish. If it is, in fact a wax finish, it may be very difficult to re-coat the floor with a surface-type finish (oil-modified, waterborne, conversion varnish, moisture-cure), even with full re-sanding. Before re-coating, the wood floor should be cleaned with a non-residue cleaner designed specifically for hard wood floors. If you are mechanically abrading the floor, use the abrasive that is recommended by the finish manufacturer (typically a sanding screen, pad or sandpaper). After you have abraded the floor, vacuum up all the dust you possibly can and tack the floor (follow the finish manufacturers’ directions for tacking).

Factory finished wood floors, usually with the same procedures that are used for site-finished flooring. Re-coating is recommended to restore the finish when the floor shows wear, but is not totally worn through. Sanding and refinishing is only necessary when there is severe damage, such as finish that is completely worn through to a large area.

Severe damage to just a few boards can be repaired but just replacing those few boards. Be aware that re-coating a factory-finished floor may void the warranty. Also, spot finish touch-ups may be possible but may not offer the same appearance as a complete re-coat. Re-sanding, abrading and/or re-coating of a wood floor is best performed by a hard wood flooring professional, something Royal Wood Floors has been doing for many years.

“The best way to make sure that your hard wood floors are protected and as beautiful as they naturally can be, is to always do the research first or seek professional help. Then problems such as the ones described here can be prevented,” says Allman.

For more information about this experienced and professional hardwood floor restoration and new installation company, or to schedule repairs by these wood floor refinishing contractors, or learn about custom wood styles or the company’s inlay and medallion installation services, phone Keith Allman at 414-378-2066.

The new line included in CSH’s "May Cabinet Deals” include transitional designs, characterized by clean, simple lines, as well as more traditional designs. Both styles are available in white painted or wood-stained finishes.

“We understand that the kitchen is the central hub of most homes which means it not only has to look warm and inviting as a place to hang out, it also has to function efficiently for the homeowners’ lifestyle,” said Timothy Stepanski, CSH Marketing Manager. “Behind our cabinets’ elegant external design is a plethora of useful storage features that keep even the busiest of households organized,” he continued.

CSH’s line of cabinets includes popular user-friendly features such as Blum full extension soft-close undermount slides which make opening and closing the integrated drawers a quiet pleasure. Other features include attractive, purpose-built storage racks and specialized cabinets, normally found only in high end kitchen construction.

The Kebony® Collection by reSAWN TIMBER co. Set to Debut in Mid May

reSAWN TIMBER co. & Kebony set to debut new partnership

Example of kebony wood weathering capabilities

reSAWN is excited to announce its newest collection that will include both CHARRED and non-CHARRED designs on high performance, Kebony® wood.

TELFORD, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, May 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Kebony® Collection is scheduled to debut in mid May primarily as an aesthetically pleasing exterior product line. In addition to the exterior products already offered by reSAWN TIMBER co.–including designs on Western Red Cedar, Accoya, and Cypress–the Kebony® Collection combines the inherent technology of high quality, modified Kebony® wood with reSAWN's modern finishing techniques.

While there will be CHARRED Kebony® shou sugi ban designs, the focus of this collection is to create beautiful exterior siding that will weather evenly and to the desired aesthetic. Due to the density and added strength of Kebony® wood, it will also be offered as decking material.

Developed in Norway, the Kebony® technology is an environmentally friendly, patented process, which enhances the properties of sustainable softwood with a bio-based liquid. The process permanently modifies the wood cell walls giving Kebony® premium hardwood characteristics and a rich brown color.

The Kebony® process begins by impregnating the raw wood with furfuryl aldehyde, which changes the polymer structure of the wood causing it to swell. Next, the wood is cured and dried to lock the swollen cells in place and give the wood enhanced strength. Finally, the resulting wood has reduced hygroscopicity and is permanently more dimensionally stable.

With its natural high performance characteristics, Kebony® wood receives added weathering benefits with reSAWN's shou sugi ban process. With origins dating back to 1700s Japan, the modern iteration of shou sugi ban provides an extra layer of protection against rot, insects, and other moisture related damage. reSAWN's award-winning CHARRED collection has a proven record of success in aesthetics and performance, and lends itself perfectly to a structurally superior product like Kebony®.

All of reSAWN’s CHARRED products are made in the USA, in their facility in Telford, PA. reSAWN uses domestic wood species whenever possible, including Cypress from the Southern US, Cedar from the Pacific Northwest and domestic White Oak, Black Walnut, Red Oak & Ash as well as reclaimed woods from the US. The designs in the CHARRED collection have been carefully developed using modern finishes and incorporating reSAWN’s many years of experience in the architectural & design specification market. reSAWN manufacturers charred wood products for a range of applications including exterior siding, interior wall cladding & flooring, and custom furniture.

reSAWN TIMBER co. ships anywhere in the USA & abroad. reSAWN works with an international network of distributors and sales reps to make our products easily accessible throughout the global design community. Having our manufacturing facility in PA makes us uniquely positioned to service the US East Coast market – we are about 45 minutes outside of Philadelphia, 2 hours from New York City and 4 hours from DC. Our materials have been installed throughout the Unites States, as well as in Hong Kong & Canada.

Is your shipping facility hampered by inefficient space utilization or irregular inventory workflow? If so, read 7 steps to a more efficient packing station!

Be generous with the space allocation. Think about your busiest times of the year and plan accordingly. Too much activity in too little space will cause problems down the line.”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, May 1, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Will your warehouse shipping / logistics facility add, upgrade or revamp Packing Stations in the coming year? If so, we’d like to share some of the useful “lessons learned” from designing and manufacturing Packing Stations for leading companies like Amazon, Keuhne+Nagel, and McMaster-Carr Supply Company.

1. Assess Whether Your Facility is Lean

If you want to improve the efficiency of your packing stations, your first move is to step back and take a look at the big picture. After all, your packing station is only going to be as efficient as the operations supporting it.

As a first step, we recommend undertaking a “Rapid Plant Assessment” of your facility. This approach, which comes from the world of lean manufacturing, allows you to quickly establish a performance baseline and uncover issues by asking a series of critical questions, such as:

– Is your shipping facility hampered by things like inefficient space utilization or irregular inventory workflow?
– Is your workforce committed to productivity, safety and problem-solving?
– What is the overall commitment to quality? Are there failsafe methods in place to stop the propagation of errors?
– Would you personally buy products shipped through this facility?

Formaspace recently performed an on-site Rapid Plant Assessment for the McMaster-Carr Supply Company, the privately-owned industrial and commercial facilities supplier that specializes in next day delivery for maintenance/repair operations (MRO). Through their trademark yellow print catalog and no-nonsense online website, McMaster-Carr prides itself in offering over 550,000 products for industrial, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and other hard to source products. The Formaspace Rapid Plant Assessment at McMaster-Carr was invaluable in preparing for the design of the packing stations that would help McMaster Carr shipping facility in Douglasville, Georgia, streamline their operations.

2. Undertake a 5S Program to make your Packing Workflow More Efficient

Information gleaned from the Rapid Plant Assessment will help inform clients what steps are needed to improve the flow of goods to the packing workstation.

For example, if the assessment uncovered excessive buildup of unused items stored in the warehouse, your next step should be to conduct a 5S program to recover additional floor space.

If you’re not familiar with 5S program, it stems from Japanese manufacturing efficiency expert Hiroyuki Hirano and his work as an efficiency expert for Toyota. Closely related to this is the work of Robert B. Pojasek, who wrote the paper “Asking ‘Why?’ Five Times”, to uncover inefficient procedures that are hiding in plain sight.

Formaspace has helped its customers launch 5S programs at their own facilities. In many cases, a 5S program results in startling improvements; in one case we help a client recover thousands of square feet of floor space that had been used for non-essential inventory storage. In turn, freeing up this space allowed the client to cancel plans to add on to their facility – quite an impressive return on investment!

3. Customized Packing Stations Designs to Make Them Job Throughput Friendly

Once you’ve taken a look at how to improve the overall efficiency and workflow of the facility, it’s time to create detailed plans for the packing station flow.

Document all the steps from start to finish.

Identify and segregate packing workflows that are different from one another.

One size does not fit all.

For example, it’s quite common to have high-volume quantities that need to be packed in smaller shippers (e.g. shipping containers such cartons) and low volume quantities that need special attention because they are oversized, heavy or especially prone to damage in packing and/or shipping.

High-volume packing stations handling small packages can be more compact in design, allowing the worker to pack faster by taking fewer steps. On the other hand, packing stations that process large, bulky items will likely need bigger tables with built-in lifting capability to assist workers handling heavy items.

Be generous with the space allocation. Think about your busiest times of the year and plan accordingly. Too much activity in too little space will cause problems down the line. It’s also a good idea to add a little extra margin to make room for automation equipment you might acquire in the future.

4. Create Prototype Packing Station Designs to Evaluate in Real World Conditions

After you have completed the analysis, documenting all the steps required to process as quickly and efficiently as possible at the packing station, it’s time to assess a prototype design.

Formaspace can help you by building a prototype packing table station to evaluate and utilize under real-world conditions.

Take the time to develop a quality assurance plan to assess the prototype design.

Review these questions to check that everything is working as expected:

– Does the Packer have sufficient table space to consolidate orders?
– Have you provided the Packer with an easily accessible method to confirm their packing list items?
– Are the “protect and pack” steps operating smoothly?
– Is it easy for the Packer to include any printed materials like special offers or documentation into the shipper?
– Can the Packer affix the label and address to the shipper without error?
– Are shipping manifests managed efficiently?
– What is the workflow for staging packed orders? How are they transported away from the packing station?
– And most importantly: what checks are in place to help prevent errors and what is the procedure to handle an error once it has been detected?

5. Incorporate Ergonomic Design Features that are Worker Friendly

As we have covered in previous articles, preventing workplace injuries is critical to the success of your operation.

You can reduce the potential for on-the-job injury at packing stations by focusing on three key areas:
