Experience the difference in quality with our meticulous five-step procedure, guaranteeing the utmost care and attention to detail.

Step 1:

Room Preparation

We take every precaution to maintain a clean and dust-free environment. Our skilled team strategically places plastic sheeting in critical areas to prevent dust from spreading throughout your home, resulting in a 99% dustless refinishing process.

Step 2:

Equipment Setup

Our team will handle equipment setup, including connecting the drum cord for the sander. To ensure a smooth process, we will need access to the electrical panel box. This step is essential for operation and vital for our customers to be aware of.

Step 3:

Sanding & Repair

Using a careful sanding process, we address any sections in need of repair, starting with rough grit sandpaper and progressing to a medium grit for a flawless finish. We meticulously fill gaps, cracks, and nail holes. Wood filler may occasionally emerge from the seams during sanding, especially if the floorboards are shifting or if the filler did not bond well with an old finish.


Step 4:

Detail Work & Sealing

Our attention turns to detail work, such as hand-scraping corners and door jams. We then use a multi-head disk attachment to blend all sanding patterns, followed by a thorough vacuuming. If staining is desired, we apply a technique called 'water popping' to achieve an even and non-blotchy stain application. Otherwise, we proceed with sealing directly after buffing and vacuuming.

Step 5:

Drying & Final Touches

After applying the seal, we allow 24 hours for it to dry completely. On the following day, we perform a final buff and hand buff any remaining, unreachable areas, ensuring a seamless surface. The plastic sheeting is removed, and a thorough vacuuming is conducted. Finally, we add the finishing touches to leave your floor revitalized.
