Sanding and refinishing your hardwood floors is a necessary part of any hardwood floor refinishing job. The hardwood needs to be resurfaced so it not only looks new again, but also creates a fresh surface for your chosen stain color. It seems like a fairly simple process right? Well… If you want a great looking, long lasting hardwood refinish, then the answer is No. Properly sanding and prepping a hardwood floor for refinishing actually requires a highly trained eye and detailed knowledge of woods, stains, and their specific applications.

When We Sand Your Wood Floors We:
- Carefully inspect the floor before hand. Looking for any obvious damaged areas, exposed nails, cracks, and if necessary we repair them.
- Type Of Stain Used Previously. Was it a water based stain or an oil based stain. We need to make sure the new stain will be compatible.
- Carefully Sand Your Floors. Using “Dustless” floor sanding machines that keep the mess to a minimum.
After we’ve sanded the floors we go through another round of inspecting the floor. We vacuum the floor thoroughly so the surface is totally dust free and then we begin applying wood filler in any areas that need it. If requested by a homeowner we can even apply wood filler to your entire floor, which usually results in the highest quality refinishing job because it fills all of the imperfections.
- Final Sanding. After the woodfiller has set we can then finishing sanding your floors, the filler will be left behind in all of the low spots giving you a near perfectly flat new hardwood surface.
After the sanding has been completed your hardwood floor is ready to have several coats of stain applied.
