What is hardwood floor sanding & refinishing?
Hardwood floor sanding & refinishing is the age old craft of restoring hardwood through multiple sanding methods to remove aged or damaged varnish, oil, and wax from the surface of the hardwood. Then new floor protecting finish is applied in multiple coats to give the hardwood floor an amazing sheen.
Steps to Sanding & Refinishing Hardwood floors
1) Hardwood floor sanding
We begin by removing the old finish from the hardwood floor with German industrial sanders, called a Lagler Hummel sander. The Hummel sander forces air up through the neck from the bottom of the machine, keeping a fairly constant airflow of dust into the bag, therefore reducing dust generated into the air, by as much as 80 - 90 %. We first cross cut the floor, then after filling, later straight cut the floor with a very fine grit, leaving a smooth floor.
1) Filling hardwood floor
After completing the initial 1st cross-cut, we would then utilize a filler made of the real hardwood. We pour and smooth it across the hardwood floor filling in the gaps.
Please Note: If proper humidity conditions are not MET in the residential or commercial property, the filler WILL NOT stay in the floor and shall even come out during the 2nd and 3rd sanding phase.
