Dust Containment System is very important in making the process of refinishing your hardwood floors a pleasant experience rather than a nightmare that will make you regret your decision. We will plastic off the rooms that are not being worked on as well as using a machine that keeps the air clear and all the dust from the sanding process contained; which also helps for quicker clean-up.

Hardwood flooring typically consists of several layers of coating to ensure that the color lasts for a very long time. However, overtime wood flooring can become dull, scuffed, and scratched where it really shows its age (and not in a good way). We begin by sanding the existing floor down to the bare wood so that new stain and coatings can be applied. After a new stain with sealer is hand finished, it will then receive 2 coats of polyurethane as a wear/ protective layer. With all of this, you may be wondering how long to expect this whole process to take. As a general guideline, it can take around 3-4 days to refinish a typical 1,000 Square Feet home.
