Hardwood Floor Refinishing Process
STEP 1: Remove Carpet
We use a putty knife to scrape bonded pads, like carpet, away from the floor. We take care to follow the grain of the wood and avoid and scratching or gouging as we scrape. We use a chemical solvent can to speed the process and we remove the left over carpet staples by hand. Once existing flooring materials have been cleared, the hardwood floor refinishing can begin.
STEP 2: Sanding
Our dustless sanding process ensures that only a fractional amount of dust is created as we prepare your floors for staining. We start sanding with the coarsest grit of sandpaper and perform three passes, using a finer grit each time. We are careful to move with the grain of the wood as much as possible and keep the sander moving at a steady pace to avoid uneven patches. We do the sanding by hand, using the same progression of coarse to fine sandpaper described above, because often times the corners are over sanded from the sander passing over them too many times. Once the floors have been sanded three times, they are ready to be prepared for staining.
STEP 3: Staining
After selecting a stain color of your choice, we apply the stain in an even, circular motion in order to avoid any color inconsistencies. If after the first application the stain is too light, we repeat until the desired color is attained. Next, we use our buffing technique. We use a tack cloth to clear away dust and debris, and the floors will be ready for their first coat of polyurethane finish.
STEP 4: Finishing
We apply the polyurethane finish using a mop-like tool or a pad applicator. Once the recommended drying time has elapsed we repeat the above process twice more, making three coats of polyurethane in all. The hardwood floor refinishing project is finally complete once your floors have been drying for a full 24 hours. Your floors will once again have a beautiful luster and will be ready to handle the regular traffic and daily demands that are expected of them.
