Hardwood Flooring Restoration
Hardwood Floor Sanding
Hardwood floor sanding is a cost effective method to rejuvenate an older floor without the need for costly replacement of the whole floor. Our crews will determine if your current floor is a suitable candidate for refurbishing vis sanding. Only solid hardwood should be sanded, engineered floors are not appropriate for sanding. Sometimes a floor will just need a good cleaning and polishing as opposed to a sanding. We can determine the appropriate level of sanding needed based on the wood type and condition of it. Crews will prep the area and protect your drapes, pictures, remove doors and cover the central air registers. The molding will be removed and the floor will be inspected for loose debris. Larger sanding will be done with an upright sander and smaller areas done with hand sanders. Detail sanders will be used in corners and hard-to-reach areas.
All installations, repairs, and renovations are done by licensed subcontractors.
Sand and Finish
For well-worn and moderately damaged floors, sanding and finishing is the appropriate action to take. This process will remove the outer layer of wood from your floor, making the product smoother and looking like new. The technicians will evaluate the floor to determine the level and depth of sanding required. Given that this process actually removes your floor's surface, there are a limited number of times that this process can occur, so it’s important to remove just enough floor to give the desired appearance. After each initial sanding, the area will be vacuumed clean, assessed and additional sanding with higher grits will be performed according to the needs of each individual site. The final step is screening the surface with a 120-grit screen, which will help smooth out fine scratches. Finally, the crew will clean the entire room and then wipe the floor with mineral spirits.
