Prep & Sanding
We use floor sanders to sand the old finish off of the wood floors, when working tight against walls, corners and doorways we will use the handheld PowerEdge sander. Both units have a vacuum and dust bag system to minimize the sanding dust left behind.
There is a lot of preparation before starting a refinishing project on hardwood floors, moving furniture to a separate location, numbering all items, covering all entrances to bath rooms, cabinets, kitchen appliances, covering carpets & pictures with plastic and blue tape.
After using a series of sand paper grades and using wood putty in any nicks or gouge in the floor we remove and vacuum all the dust from the floor, molding and walls (Any leftover of dust can and will destroy the quality of the finish coats.
The stain will be determent before starting the refinishing project, samples will be presented to the homeowner according to your vision and taste. The stain will be applied on the floor with rags spreading the stain with the shape of the grain rather than against it.
Sealing & Polish
After staining we will use a sealer coat that will help ensure even stain coverage, the coat will be applied with professional applicators. After letting it cure and waiting 24 hours we will apply 2 coats of polyurethane on top to build up the durability of the floor against future wear and tare and to give the floors the desired shine.
Enjoy your new floors!
The process of refinishing wood floors takes a minimum of between 3-4 days and can take longer if a custom stain, distressing, or hand scraping is required.
