FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Hardwood Floor Refinishing?
Refinishing means sanding your floors down to bare wood, re-staining with the color of your choice, and applying polyurethane. If you prefer oil-based polyurethane, we will apply 2 coats and lightly sand between coats. With water-based poly, 3 coats are used with light sanding between coats 1 and 2 and scuffing between coats 2 and 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 possible. With our low prices, our hardwood floor refinishing services is the most affordable and valuable one in the Denver area.
What is Hardwood Floor Resurfacing?

Resurfacing is our signature service that quickly and easily removes light scratches, scuffs, ground-in dirt, and dullness. It does NOT affect the color of the wood (other than brightening) and does NOT extensively sand away precious wood surfaces. This process can be used on any type of wood and is also our most cost-effective service. It starts at only 99¢ per square foot. Most projects can be completed in hours, rather than days.

I Have a Few Really Deep Scratches, Do I Need Resurfacing or Refinishing?
We want you to be as well-informed as possible, so we will explain the advantages of each service. A deep scratch here and there may not be a bad thing. 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 pets or 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 us a call and we’ll help you with this. We will not push you into a service that you don’t need.

I Have Pet Stains On My Hardwood Floors, Can You Fix It?
Cleaning pet accidents when they are fresh is the key to maintaining your hardwood floors. If cleaning with the steps outlined in the next section doesn’t fix the problem area, then the urine has probably soaked into your flooring and more serious hardwood floor restoration work will be required. We are confident in our ability to conquer most pet stains, but contact us to determine the severity of your stain.
What Do I Use To Clean Deep Stains On My Hardwood Floors?
White vinegar and water (1 part vinegar to 4 parts water). Prepare a spray bottle for little, everyday accidents and a bucket for the bigger stains. Scrub stains thoroughly. Wipe the surface clean, and then dry it completely. Ensure that the area is completely dry before proceeding. Beware of using cleaners with ammonia in it. Pet urine actually contains ammonia, and if your pet smells the ammonia where they last had an accident they are more likely to want to relieve themselves in that same spot next time.
Is Your Process Really Dust Free?
Our process creates very little dust because our equipment mounted vacuums eliminate most of it. What remains is a very light coating of dust on the floor. There is no airborne dust generated at all. The remaining dust on the floor is vacuumed up, then the surface is cleaned with tack rags.
Is Your Process Odorless?
For resurfacing, we use only waterborne products that are “Greenguard” certified. The only smell is a very light, pleasant aroma.
How much does it cost to refinish or resurface hardwood floors?
