Our Hardwood Floor Refinishing Process
Prep the Room
We remove all furniture from the space before applying the appropriate cleaning solution. We then carefully clean the floor using a terrycloth mop or towel, closing all doors and windows to prevent dust from entering the room.
Scuff-sand the Floor Finishing
We use a special drum sander and 40-grit sandpaper to remove scratches, chips, dings, and the old finish, leaving a rough and coarse surface. The sander works in three-to-four-foot sections, moving slowly and even quickly.
Buff the Floor
Buffing the floor removes any remaining marks for a smooth finish. We buff each floorboard individually in a back-and-forth manner.
Prep for Sealer or Stain
Before applying the sealer, we clean the floor again, ensuring the proper removal of any sand, hair, or debris. We also clean all adjacent walls to prevent dust from falling to the floor as the sealer dries.
Using a pump sprayer, we spray the floor in a complete and even fashion, followed by rigorous mopping.
We can also change the color of your hardwood flooring upon request by using a stain. Once you select the perfect stain color, we apply it all over the floor, letting it dry for 24 hours afterwards. We may need to use a second coat to ensure quality further.
Seal the Floor
The final step in the refinishing process is sealing the floor. Adding the final sealing layer protects the floor from dents, scratches, marks, pest infestation, and water damage.
