 FAQ 
  • What is resurfacing?
    Resurfacing is our proprietary system that gently sands light scratches, scuffs, ground in dirt and dullness away. It does NOT affect the color (other than brightening) and does NOT sand away precious wood. It can be used on all types of wood flooring and is the most cost effective flooring service we offer. Most projects can be completed in hours, rather than days.

  • What is refinishing?
    Refinishing means sanding your floors down to bare wood, re-staining (your choice of color) and applying polyurethane. If oil-based polyurethane is desired, we will apply 2 coats and lightly sand between coats. With water-based poly; 3 coats are used with light sanding between coats 1&2 and scuffing between coats 2&3. Of course we "tack" (clean the dust) prior to each coat. This is the method most are familiar with; it takes 2 to 4 days and provides the homeowner with a finish that is as close to perfection as humanly possible.

  • I have a few really deep scratches, which service do I need?
    -Well, that's a personal thing (that's not much help). I will guide you with pros and cons of each method, I'm not going to sell you a service that will not deliver what you want. A deep scratch here and there may not be a bad thing. Huh? Some folks call it character, some turn it into a story, some simply don't see the "value added" with the added expense of removing the deep scars. If you have heavy pets, or small children, then removing ALL scratches may very well be a temporary thing. Maybe resurfacing is the right direction, maybe all you need to do is to protect your long term investment. . . Give me a call, I'll help you with this. I will NOT push you into a service that gives you a negative return. I promise!

  • Bowden (English Bulldog) can't hold his water any more, can you fix it?
    Oh yeah, I forgot that minor detail. . . White Vinegar and water (1 pt vinegar to 4 pt water). Fix yourself a spray bottle for the little, everyday deals and a bucket for the monumental days. After you're sure its clean, wipe it dry, completely dry, dry as a bone dry. Then, dry it again. DO NOT use anything containing ammonia, pet urine has ammonia and if you clean with the same stuff, they'll think that's the place to go. You know, go and go and go.

  • And? Hey, what do I use to clean it?

  • Dustless, really?​​​
    -This process creates very little dust; equipment mounted vacuums pull the lions share of the dust, what remains is a very light coating of dust on the floor. No airborne dust is generated, none. The remaining dust on the floor is vacuumed up, then the surface is cleaned with tack rags.

  • What about the smell?
    -For resurfacing, we use only waterborne products that are "Greenguard" certified. The only smell is a very light, pleasant aroma.

  • So tell me about this GreenGuard thing.​
    This was taken from GreenGuard's website, they can say it far better than I: The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute, part of UL Environment, was founded in 2001 with the mission of protecting human health and quality of life by improving indoor air quality and reducing chemical exposure. The GREENGUARD Certification Program helps manufacturers create--and helps buyers identify--interior products and materials that have low chemical emissions, improving the quality of the air in which the products are used. UL Environment, a business unit of UL (Underwriters Laboratories), acquired GREENGUARD in 2011, further advancing its mission of promoting global sustainability, environmental health, and safety.
