When your hardwood floors no longer look their best, an economical way to transform the flooring is via sanding and finishing. Ability Wood Flooring has decades’ worth of hands-on wood floor refinishing experience serving College Park homeowners for sanding and finishing hardwood floors.
How to Sand and Finish Hardwood Floors in College Park
At Ability Wood Flooring, our sand and finish process is in-depth:
Step 1: To begin, the home is prepped for sanding. When the furniture is cleared and the walls and doorways are taped off, we bring in our state-of-the-art sanding equipment. One option we offer to our clients is for us to connect our wood floor refinishing equipment to a dust evacuation system located outside in the company trailer. The system captures dust as the sanding is done.
Step 2: The next step is using a tool to remove the old staining and level the floor. If your floors were uneven before, this step is critical for providing a smooth and even finish. Our floor technicians do several runs with this equipment with multiple grades of grits in order to achieve an immaculate outcome.
Step 3: A buffer then sands the floor to remove any leftovers and smoothen the surface. Next, our technicians clean and vacuum the floor. Because we typically use the dust evacuation system, there are no extensive or labor-intensive cleanups to complete.
Step 4: Now comes the fun part: In this step, you can actually change the color of the hardwood flooring or keep the original stain. It’s all up to you. Ability Wood Flooring has a wide selection of stains to choose from. We are also happy to go over different textures that can be achieved.
Step 5: To preserve the stain, three layers of finish are applied.
