How do we go about refinishing your hardwood floors?
First, sweep the surface so as to identify and remove any nails or other sharp objects sticking up from the surface.
Second, we bring in our industrial sanders and sand away any existing varnish, polyurethane or other type of product to get back to the original raw wood grain. In this we take care to go always with the grain of the wood to avoid scratching and disfiguring the finished look.
Third, we sweep again and damp-wipe to check that the wood is smooth and uniform, touching up any areas that need a little extra sanding or smoothing off. We also check now for any signs of water damage, stains, dents, knocks, grooves and other superficial damage that we can repair and disguise so that it will not be noticeable when the renovation is complete.
Fourth, we will make a second and even a third pass with a slightly finer sandpaper so as to get the most perfect surface possible before applying the wood primer. The number of sanding passes we make all depends on the original condition of your floor.
Once the surface is sanded and buffed to our satisfaction we will damp-wipe it again before sealing it with sanding sealer and then applying two or three coats of the matt, semi- or hi-gloss finish of your choice. Et voilÃ¡ â€“ Your hardwood refinishing is complete!
