Commercial Hardwood Floor Refinishing Service in Seattle


Hardwood flooring can develop deep scratches and scuffs that most cleaning products are unable to restore, resulting in a floor that lacks the original sheen that it once had. It can have great longevity given the right maintenance and care. The best way to keep this elegant choice of flooring looking its best is with the assistance of a professional hardwood floor refinishing Seattle contractor.

The process involves the removal of the top layer of the covering material using a large sander. This removes the surface finish and digs down past any surface scratches, stains, or imperfections that could exist. The result is a fresh surface that is then stained and top-coated with a protective coating.

Our Hardwood Floor Refinishing Process

Prep the Room

All furniture will be removed and the floor will be sprayed with a hardwood flooring cleaner. The floor will be gently wiped with a terry-cloth mop or a towel wrapped around a mop head. The windows and doors will be closed to keep dust contained in the room where the sanding is taking place.

Scuff-sand the Floor Finishing

This step will make use of a drum sander, as well as 40-grit sandpaper that will do the heavy-duty work of removing scratches, dings, and the old finish, but will leave a rough surface. The drum sander is moved with the grain of the wood, while working in 3- to 4-foot sections, making sure to keep moving across the floor at a slow, even speed.

Buff the Floor

Buffing the floor will remove tiny sanding marks and give a completely smooth finish. The floor will be buffed along each board, moving back and forth with the grain.

Prep for Sealer or Stain

When prepping for sealer the floor must be completely clean, making sure that any sand, hair, or small debris is removed. Walls can also be wiped down to prevent dust from falling to the floor as the sealer is drying.

The floor will be sprayed using a pump sprayer, covering the floor completely and a rag or mop can be used to evenly distribute the solution over the hardwood floor. One should allow 30 minutes atleast for the floor to dry.

Apply Stain

Those looking to change the color of the wood can add a stain. Once the entire floor is stained, 24 hours must be given for it to dry completely and a second coat may need to be applied.

Seal the Floor

After the stain is dry or if a stain is not being applied, the hardwood floor refinishing process can be completed by sealing the floor. Sealing protects the floor from water damage, dent, and scratches and adds shine to bring out the natural look of the wood.
