Wood floors can be striking when they're in good shape. They can enhance the value and charm of your home, but over time even the most sturdy hardwood floors can become dull and dingy. Years of wear and tear can leave unsightly nicks and scratches too. Refinishing wood floors is sometimes the only option. More often than not after a successful hardwood floor refinishing project, the new floor would be as good as new and, a cost-effective way to improve the look of your floors. At Kenny's Carpet One Floor & Home, we can help refinish your floors and bring them back to life.
Sanding and refinishing existing floors is a process. We start off sanding your floors with rough grit sandpaper to ensure all of the existing polyurethane and stain is completely removed. Then we move to finer sandpaper and finally, we buff the floors with a very fine grit screen which ensures a super smooth surface for finishing and apply three coats of commercial grade oil-base polyurethane or environmentally friendly water-based polyurethane. In between the coats of polyurethane, we do a very fine sanding to ensure the correct bonding of the polyurethane and a smooth finish coat.
If your scratches are only on the surface of your floors, we may be able to use a method called buffing. With this technique, we don’t use a drum sander; instead, we use a smaller tool that is much less invasive. After we ensure that all the dirt and debris is off your floors, we apply a coat of finish, either polyurethane or water-based and allow it to dry for several days.
