Before and After Hardwood Floor Refinishing in San Diego, CA

Our Hardwood Refinishing Process

STEP 1: Remove Carpet

First, we remove any remaining carpet by scraping the bonded pads by hand with a putty knife. We take care to follow the grain of the wood and not to gouge it as we scrape. By using a chemical solvent, we can speed up the process and remove the leftover carpet staples with needle-nose pliers. Once existing flooring materials have been cleared, the hardwood floor refinishing can begin.

STEP 2: Sand to Remove Scratches

Our dustless sanding process ensures that a minimal amount of dust is created as we prepare your floors for staining. We start sanding with the coarsest grit of sandpaper and perform three passes, using a finer grit each time. Fabulous Floors technicians are talented and respectful when working on the floors and they’ll be sure to move with the grain of the wood as much as possible. This helps to avoid uneven patches and ensures a spectacular finish. Since corners are often sanded too much as the machine passes over them repeatedly and there will always be awkward patches where the sander cannot reach, the only choice is to do these patches by hand, using the same progression of coarse to fine sandpaper described above. Floors are sanded three times before they are ready for staining.

STEP 3: Staining

Tell us anything else about your project that will help us to provide an accurate estimate – how severe the damage is, the area that is affected, type of damage, deep scratches, warped boards, scuffs, and dings, etc. We then apply the stain color you’ve selected in a circular motion, which includes a seal coat. We’re always sure to apply the stain evenly to avoid any color inconsistencies. The process is not finished until the desired color is attained. After buffing the floor, we use a tack cloth to clear away dust and debris. At this point, the floor will be ready for the first coat of polyurethane.
