Does your floor need to be refinished?
An easy way to tell is if the cleaning no longer restores your floors to an acceptable appearance. Besides the dull appearance, look for scratches, gouges, and separations between boards. Repairing such damage is part of the process.
|Step 1: Visual inspection. We will join you in the inspection to be sure that we have found all damaged areas. Another purpose of the inspection is to determine if we can restore the appearance level with our process or if more aggressive restoration will be required, including sanding, staining, and refinishing.|
|Step 2: Damage repair. We will fill in the cracks, gouges, and separations with wood patch/filler. If we don’t have exactly the right color our technicians will mix colors to match.|
|Step 3: Complete cleaning and abrasion. This step will remove all loose and embedded soil. It will take off scuff marks, and through mild abrasion, will remove the surface layer of the old floor. This leaves your floor in the ideal condition for the new finish to be applied. This entire process is dust free.|
|Step 4: Initial sealer coat of finish.Step 5: Final finish coat. You have a choice of Semi-gloss or Matte (satin) finish.|
Hardwood Floor Care
As recommended by the National Wood Floor Association
- Use dirt trapping walk-off mats at all exterior doors.
- Strong sunlight can cause fading of wood and wood stain. To avoid uneven appearance move area rugs around occasionally and drape or shade large windows to avoid direct sunlight on the wood.
- Apply fabric-faced glides to the legs of your furniture.
- Vacuum or dust your wood floors as often as you vacuum your carpet.
- Wipe up food and other spills immediately with a damp (not wet) cloth. Standing moisture can damage poorly finished floors.
- Avoid soaps. They can build up and create problems. For cleaning use cleaners that are specifically formulated for wood floors.
