Hard surface floors are more popular than ever. It’s common to see these high-traffic areas take on dirt, grime, light scratches, scuff marks, blemishes, and waxy substances, which leave behind a dull, hazy appearance.

Screen and recoat is our sand-less refinishing service. Hardwood Floors have a top surface layer of polyurethane that protects the wood from wear and tear. Whereas, over time this top layer collects surface scratches from pets and furniture and gets worn too thin where it no longer protects the wood underneath. Therefore, our screen and recoat process removes this top layer of polyurethane then new poly is reapplied to restore to look of your hardwood floors, giving you another 3-5 years of protection.
Thoroughly cleaning the floor surface is the first step in the screen and recoat process. Of course, the surface must be cleared of all debris to ensure not to further damage the actual wood floor itself. Furthermore, our techs will utilize specialized cleaning solutions and techniques to remove dirt, dust, and other contaminants that can compromise the finish's adhesion.
Using a floor buffer fitted with a fine-grit sanding screen, we will carefully screen the existing finish. Therefore this process lightly abrades the surface, eliminating minor imperfections, scuffs, and scratches. Likewise, it prepares the floor for optimal adhesion of the new finish.
Once the floor has been thoroughly screened, we will apply a fresh coat of polyurethane finish. Naturally, we high-quality products specifically formulated for hardwood floors, ensuring a durable and aesthetically pleasing result. The application is done evenly and with meticulous attention to detail, guaranteeing a smooth and uniform appearance.
After the finish has been applied, it needs sufficient time to dry and cure.

Waxy and acrylic rejuvenator products leave a dull and hazy build-up over time. In most cases, the answer is to reapply yet another layer of floor shine to try and make your hardwood floors shine again. Furthermore, this waxy layer build-up begins to trap dirt and small particles. When dirt particles get trapped in this layer, it’s impossible to remove these particles without removing the wax itself. Therefore, our process emulsifies the wax build-up, followed by a thorough rotary brush scrubbing that lifts and extracts the waxy solution leaving a smooth-to-the-touch surface.
We will test the hardwood floor for the presence of wax. Therefore, this will help determine the necessary removal process.
Before commencing the removal process, it is essential to prepare the area. Therefore, this involves removing all furniture and obstructions from the room to allow easy access to the entire floor surface. Additionally, protecting adjacent surfaces, such as baseboards or carpets, with masking tape or protective coverings, prevents accidental damage.
To eliminate loose debris and prevent scratching during the removal process, the floor surface must be thoroughly dusted and vacuumed. Furthermore, specialized tools, such as a hepa-filter vacuums, microfiber mop or soft-bristle broom, will be used to ensure all dirt and dust particles are removed.
Based on the amount of wax we find, our techs will choose the most appropriate removal method. Therefore, mechanical methods, such as abrasion, sanding, or scraping, may be used for thicker wax layers. Also, chemical methods, including stripping agents or solvents, are employed for thinner or less stubborn wax coatings, or a combination of the two.
Once the initial wax layer is removed, any residual wax should be addressed. Likewise, specialized tools and techniques, such as a floor buffer or gentle scraping, can be employed to ensure a thorough removal without causing damage to the underlying hardwood surface.
After the wax removal process, it is essential to clean the floor surface thoroughly. Subsequently, this involves removing any remaining residue and restoring the natural beauty of the hardwood.
