Sanding and Preparation
Our well-trained craftsmen begin by determining the proper grit sandpaper required and a number of sanding passes necessary for each specific work site. Based on experience, the mechanics will recognize the grit needed to remove any old finish, scratches and/or embedded dirt within the wood floor. Yet still not allowing too much wood to be removed with each pass. The floor may need two to four sanding passes depending on the age and type of finish, and the condition and species of wood being refinished.
Newly installed unfinished hardwood floors will need to be sanded as well, due to slight milling imperfections and minor board edge unevenness.

We utilize the flooring sandpaper grit grades of 12, 16, 20, 30, 36, 40, 60, 80, 100, and 120. The main areas of the floor are sanded with a large professional 8″ drum/belt sander, while the perimeter is completed with a circular edge sander. A hand scraper is used to remove the old finish from corners, bull nosing on steps or ledges and generally any small area our sanders cannot reach.

After the hardwood is completely sanded, a fine-grit silicon carbide sanding screen is then passed over the floor with an upright buffing/polishing machine. This extra step is taken to ensure the wood has been sufficiently smoothed down and that the grain has been evened out.
Of course, all of our equipment has vacuum ports built directly into their housings. They connect with crush-resistant 2″ hoses to our Dust Containment Vacuum System, producing a 99% dustless environment.
The floor is then vacuumed and tacked (passed over with a dampened towel) to remove any dust, prior to stain or finishing polyurethane being applied.
Between polyurethane coating layers the hardwood floor is abraded with a sanding screen as well. The first coat of polyurethane commonly absorbs into the wood and raises the grain. This will give the dried coating a slightly irregular and rough feeling – which is perfectly normal. The dried polyurethane simply requires a ‘screening’, so the floor will be made smooth prior to cleaning and recoating again.
