The Hardwood Floor Refinishing Process
STEP 1: Removing Carpet
If the carpet is present, we scrape bonded pads such as carpet by hand with a putty knife. Our technicians will follow the grain of the wood as they sand to make sure that they don’t gouge or scrape the wood. We use a chemical solvent to speed the process and we remove the leftover carpet staples with needle nose pliers. Once existing flooring materials have been cleared, the hardwood floor refinishing can begin.
STEP 2: Sanding
We use a dustless sanding process which ensures that a minimal amount of dust is created as we get your floors ready for staining. We start sanding with the coarsest grit of sandpaper and perform three passes, using a finer grit each time. By carefully moving with the grain of the wood as much as possible, we are able to move at a steady pace and avoid uneven patches. Since corners are often sanded too much as the machine passes over them repeatedly and there will always be awkward patches where the machine cannot reach, the only choice is to do these patches by hand, using the same progression of coarse to fine sandpaper described above. Once the floors have been sanded three times, they are ready to be prepared for staining.
STEP 3: Staining
Only after selecting a stain that matches your tastes perfectly, we apply the stain, which includes a seal coat, in a circular motion which we apply evenly to avoid any color inconsistencies. The process is not finished until the desired color is attained. After buffing the floor, we use a tack cloth to clear away dust and debris. At this point, the floor will be ready of the first coat of polyurethane, and one step closer to brilliance.
STEP 4: Finishing
The polyurethane is applied using a mop-like tool or a pad applicator. We apply two coats of polyurethane to lock in the stain color and add that special finished look. After a 24 hour drying period, the hardwood floor refinishing process is complete. Your floors will be ready to handle the regular traffic and daily demands that are expected of them.
