Understanding the Process of Hardwood Refinishing
For the best results, you should refinish your hardwood floors about every 7-10 years, depending on the amount of traffic and the condition of your solid hardwood floor.
Engineered hardwood can only be refinished a few times, but usually can go up to 20 years without requiring refinishing.
The process is quite simple. Here are 5 steps of hardwood refinishing:
1). Clean and prep – We’ll use specialized detergents to clean your wood and remove the old polyurethane, sealer and stain.
2). Sanding – The hardwood floor will be sanded to the bare wood, to prepare it for refinishing.
3). Stain and seal – Your floors will be re-stained and sealed, to bring out the natural grain and the beauty of the wood.
4). Polyurethane clear coat – We add a water based clear coat to your floor, which helps protect it, and pro-long the time it can go without refinishing.
5). Cleanup – Our team will clean up all the dust, supplies, and materials, leaving your floor clean and brand-new.
