Do you have hardwood floors that need refinishing and new life? At EJN, we specialize in bringing older tired floors back to life. While we can't do miracles, with a reasonable amount of work and "know how", we can bring most old.
Steps to restoring/refinishing your hardwood floor.
First we replace damaged wood as needed. Then we medium sand floor as required. This will depend on the condition of your floor, as some floors can start with a fine sand as the case might be.
After replacing needed boards on this floor, we began our initial sanding. Based on the condition of this floor, we used a nice medium grade sanding disc to take off the right amount of the top of the damaged hardwood floor. After that, we use a fine sanding disc to make the amount of hardwood removal just right before we clean up the dust and debris.
Step 3 & 4
Then we vacuum up all the dust and debris before using a tack rag to clean up fine particles that might not be picked up by the vacuum. Afterwards, may apply a stain to make the floor the same color it was before, or some customers may want to change the color some. Then we apply one coat of polyurethane sealer to seal the hardwood. If the sealer is soaked up, it might require another coat before we can put the final coats of finish on top. The sealer must dry before we add any coats of finish on top of it.
Once we are satisfied that the floor is properly sealed, we start the application of the final coats of polyurethane sealer. The sealer is desinged to coat the hardwood so that it will reisist scuffing, scratching, and light water or liquid spills (must sooned be cleaned up or they can cause stains). After drying time in between coats, we can ascertain that the right amount of finish has been used to give you a high lustre. Keep in mind that all hardwood floors are different and that each one will vary as to the amount of shine or lustre that the floor has. We can also sand and refinish steps to give them new life as well.
Here we made the floor a little darker in the kitchen as the customer desired. In most cases, it is better to keep all rooms the same color for consistency. The choice is yours of course, and it saves money to have just one color of stain applied.
Obviously, there are some variations to the process, but it basically the way we do hard wood floor to bring them back to life and give you more years of service. The ultimate price will depend on the condition of your floor and what process we will have to take to restore them to an acceptable condition.
