Sanding and Finishing

Many people do not know that even hardwood flooring that has been covered by carpet for years or that looks to be in a horrible state can usually be refinished instead of being replaced, to look almost new and give a home a more elegant and clean finish. The process of refinishing existing flooring starts with evaluating the condition of the flooring to see if there are any areas that need to be replaced or patched. Then the floor is sanded and buffed to remove the surface layer, including the old finish and stain, leaving a clean surface on which to apply a new coat of stain and finish. Refinishing flooring can remove most spots and scratches and leave floors looking like new.

Buffing and Recoating

Buffing and recoating can be used as a form of maintenance for hardwood floors to refresh the finish or protect high traffic areas. Buffing cleans the top layer of finish and can remove scratches that are in the surface of the finish. Many landlords choose to buff and recoat hardwood flooring whenever a tenant moves out, as this quickly and easily gives a shiny new finish to floors. In order to avoid having to re-sand and re-finish flooring, we recommend buffing and recoating hardwood flooring in high traffic areas such as kitchens and entry ways every 2-3 years while areas that receive less traffic can be every 10 years to protect the flooring from becoming worn and damaged. Buffing like is like a face lift for flooring.

Patch and Repair

Whenever possible, patching some sections of your hardwood floors is more cost effective. If you have a close match and sanding off the old finish then re-staining it and sealing could work, then that is also cheaper than replacing your entire floor. If you have a parquet floor, then replacing a small section of that usually works because it is a sort of patchwork in the first place. Replacing a section of laminate is usually quite easy, especially if you have saved some leftover pieces or can get an exact match. Replacing a section of laminate is like picking up a carpet square and replacing that – almost as easy.

Patching is replacing only a section of boards that has been damaged while saving the rest of the remaining flooring. Areas that need to be patched to remove them include pet urine, broken or cracked boards, and water damage.

Water Damage Repair

Flooring that has been damaged by water leakage usually must be pulled up and replaced in the section where water damage has occurred. If this is not done and the flooring is just re sanded and re finished, it will most likely warp again in the future. Signs of water damage are warped or uneven boards, and darkening of the wood. In cases where water damage is especially severe, the subfloor will also have to be replaced. Once the flooring is removed we will check the subfloor for moisture. If you have water leakage, try to dry it as thoroughly as possible immediately after noticing the water. If possible also get a dehumidifier which will draw out moisture to prevent damage.
