The Process of Floor Refinishing
We are often asked by the customers about the process of floor refinishing, and we keep no secrets. We use the technique of sanding and finishing to bring your floors to the best condition. The work is usually done in four steps.
- Getting rid of the remaining carpet.
If there is any carpet remaining on your floor, don’t worry – we will remove it with the special equipment or completely safe chemical solvents. The original floor will not be damaged in the process. After this is done, your floor is ready for the main process.
- Floor sanding.
We repeat the sanding process several times, using a finer grit of sandpaper every time. We make sure that all the stains and scratches are removed. Out specialists do a thorough job and by hand reach all the places on the floor so the sanding would be perfect. We remove all the dust after sanding by vacuuming the floors a few times.
- Staining the floors.
Here is where your creativity comes into place. We will offer you a variety of stains to choose from, and you will find a color that will perfectly suit your home. You may choose the color that you had previously, or you may want to pick another color and change the look of your room. We can even mix colors if you want a unique coating shade. The coat is applied evenly throughout the floor. After that, we buff the floor and remove the dust.
- Finishing the floor.
At the last stage, your floors are covered with a long-lasting, high-quality finish. The coat is applied with a pad applicator. The floors are left to dry, and after about 24 hours they are ready to be used again. Your new floor will shine for years to come, and it will not get scratched or stained.
