Hardwood Refinishing Services
Over time your hardwood floors become dull and damaged from daily use. Unlike other types of flooring, hardwood can be refinished and make a comeback! Both solid and engineered hardwood can be refinished. Depending on how thick the surface of the plank is can determine just how many times the floor can be refinished. As your local flooring retailer, we suggest not refinishing your hardwood alone. Hiring a professional is a guaranteed way to achieve the new look you want. Visit our Kerns Carpet One Floor & Home showroom to speak with a professional about having your hardwood flooring refinished.
Buffing is the easiest way to refinish your hardwood. If the damage you want removed is only on the surface finish and the wood underneath is in good shape, you can get away with buffing the surface, which is also known as screening. Our professionals use a buffing tool with a series of screen grits to restore your hardwood’s luster. We recommend refinishing your floors with a low-VOC water based finish or polyurethane.
Sanding and refinishing hardwood floors gives you the chance to completely restore old, damaged flooring. You even have the option to change the stain of your flooring. This method uses a drum sander with different sized grits. Once it is sanded down to the bare wood and the cracks are filled in with wood filler, the stain can be applied.
We like to make sure our customers know that it is difficult and uncommon to match a new hardwood floor to an existing one. Our hardwood refinishing services have the intention of increasing the life of the existing hardwood in your home, and removing surface damage caused by wear and use over the years. The best way to care for your hardwood floor is by following the manufacturer cleaning and care instructions provided to you. You can also find those instructions online as a quick reference.
Not all hardwood refinishing projects take the same time to complete, and we break down our time in phases. Phase one is sanding, phase two is staining, phase three is finish coats. You can't do phase three until phase two is done and has time to dry. If it is a large project, it could take days to complete.
After your hardwood floors are refinished, our technicians will recommend how long you should wait to place furniture back on your floors. If you previously had an area rug over your hardwood, you should wait a little longer to place it back.
