Floors are pre-inspected for wear and the possibility of old polyurethane failing. Not all floors can indicate the possibility of failure prior to this service, but the majority do. If repairs are not possible, this service may need to become a sand and recoat job. This service does not include removal of excessive soiling, paint or defects without additional costs. This service is available for sealed hardwood, engineered hardwood, pre-finished hardwood and most laminate floors. Your floors will be ready to walk on in 1-2 hours.
Unlike products available at grocery stores, discount stores and hardware stores, our finish does not have soft latex (rubber) solids to entrap and embed soil. Our finish contains 30% solids primarily consisting of polymers and acrylics for the best and longest lasting shine, one year or more in most cases. This shine is no less than spectacular, we guaranty it.
Other products contain 10-16%, maybe 18% of mostly latex solids to promote ease of application by inexperienced users. Our finish is more difficult to apply, but we have experience of over 250,000 sq ft of application of this product per year in a variety of settings, on a variety of flooring types.
Other "professionals" may use inferior products and have less experience. A casual survey of several contractors in the region, lead us to believe some don't even know what exactly they are applying to your floors! This can lead to unsatisfactory results and the need for stripping or even hand scraping in some cases.
There are times we've run into problems with oil from paste wax or oil soaps that were not intended for sealed wood, only unsealed wood. It pays to ask questions and get answers from experienced pros such as ourselves.

This method is the reason wall to wall carpeting boomed in the 1960's to 1990's. Modern polyurethane finish made this work unnecessary, but if the floors are unsealed, this is the way to go.
This is the type of flooring oil soaps were made for.

Sealed Hardwood Floor Sand and Recoat with 2 coats of water based, low odor, polyurethane floor finish $1.50 per sf
Do not confuse this with others overpriced acrylic floor finish, this is what was applied at the factory or by the installer, it will last upwards of 5 years.

If repairs are not possible, deeper screening and/or an additional coat of polyurethane may be required.
This service is not to be confused with complete floor refinishing, which require much deeper sanding. We are not responsible for unforeseen damage that may occur to your floors. This service does not include removal of excessive soiling, paint or defects without additional costs. These materials will clog up our sanding screens rapidly. You floor will need to be deep cleaned and possibly hand scraped if these conditions exist.
Your floor is expertly sanded with our "dust free" Mercury Dry Scrub machine. With a 12x18" pad or screen oscillating at 1750 rpm, there is no swirling as with conventional rotary floor buffers. There are no gouges from drums or belts aggressively sanding your floor to ruin. In fact, this machine is the only solution to possibly fix a botched DIY or "professional" job. We normally start with 80 or 100 grit and then switch to 120 grit sanding screens. Floors in good condition we start with 100 grit and switch to 150 grit screens if we are using glossy finish. When aggressive sanding is needed, we can switch to sand paper as rough as 20 grit to get down to raw wood.
