Our proprietary resurfacing method gently sands light scratches, scuffs, ground-in dirt and dullness away. It does NOT affect the color (other than brightening) and does NOT sand away precious wood. This is a process that is used in maintaining hardwood floors that can be used on all types of wood flooring and is the most cost effective flooring service we offer and starts at only 99¢ per square foot. Most projects can be completed in hours, rather than days.
Our refinishing service involves sanding your wood floors down to the bare wood, then re-staining it the color of your choice, followed by a heavy-duty coat of polyurethane to seal and protect the wood. If oil-based polyurethane is desired, we will apply 2 coats and lightly sand between coats. With water-based poly; 3 coats are used with light sanding between coats 1 and 2 and scuffing between coats 2 and 3. Of course we “tack” (clean the dust) prior to each coat. This is the method most are familiar with; it takes 2 to 4 days and provides the homeowner with a finish that is as close to perfection as humanly possible. With our low prices, it is a very affordable hardwood refinishing service.
We will guide you with pros and cons of each method, we will not sell you a service that will not deliver what you want. A deep scratch here and there may not be a bad thing. Some folks call it character, some turn it into a story, some simply don’t see the “value added” with the added expense of removing the deep scars. If you have pets or children, then removing ALL scratches may very well be a temporary thing. Maybe resurfacing is the right direction, maybe all you need to do is to protect your long term investment. Give us a call and we’ll help you with this. We will not push you into a service that you don’t need.
The key to maintaining your hardwood floors is the clean up any pet accidents immediately after they occur, or as soon after as possible. If cleaning with the steps outlined below doesn’t fix the problem area, then the urine has probably soaked into your flooring and more serious restoration work will be required. We can handle most pet stains, but contact us to determine the severity of your case.
White Vinegar and water (1 part vinegar to 4 parts water). Prepare a spray bottle for the little, everyday accidents and a bucket for the bigger stains. Scrub stains thoroughly. After you are positive it is clean to your satisfaction, wipe it dry. Then, wipe it dry again; we want to be absolutely positive that it is dry. DO NOT use anything containing ammonia, pet urine has ammonia and if you clean with the same stuff, your pets will think that’s the place to urinate.
Our resurfacing process creates hardly any dust. Our equipment-mounted vacuums pull the lion’s share of the dust, and what remains is a very light coating of dust on the floor. No airborne dust is generated, none. The remaining dust on the floor is vacuumed up, then the surface is cleaned with tack rags. The refinishing service does create more dust due to the sanding that is involved, but as mentioned above, our equipment-mounted vacuums do a great job of containing any dust that is generated.
Our resurfacing services uses only waterborne products that are “Greenguard” certified. That means you are left with a light, pleasant aroma, which is the only odor left behind as a result of the process.
The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute, part of UL Environment, aims to protect human health and quality of life by improving indoor air quality and reducing chemical exposure. The GREENGUARD Certification Program helps manufacturers create – and helps buyers identify – interior products and materials that have low chemical emissions, improving the quality of the air in which the products are used.
The resurfacing services starts at only 99¢ per square foot. The refinishing service is more expensive, typically 2-3 times the cost of the resurfacing service due to the increased amount of time, work and products required to complete the project. Every project is different, however, so it’s very difficult to provide a one-size-fits-all price. We provide free price estimates for any of our services before we start any work.
