Experience the Mastery of KIWI’s Wood Floor Refinishing Process

Hardwood floors might lose their original allure and smooth finish over time due to continuous usage, spills, and scratches. Here’s where the professionals at KIWI Services come into play. Our wood floor refinishing process is meticulously designed to breathe new life into your hardwood floors, restoring their original charm and beauty.

  1. In-Home Assessment: The process begins with a KIWI expert technician visiting your home to assess the condition of your floors. They will carefully examine the surface to understand the extent and nature of the refinishing required.
  2. Repair and Patchwork: After assessing your floors, our team will address any visible damages. This includes patching and repairing any significant holes or cracks that might be present, ensuring a smooth and uniform surface to work on.
  3. Sanding: The heart of the refinishing process is sanding. Our experts will meticulously sand your floors to level them and eliminate any previous stains or surface unevenness. This process also helps to open the wood’s pores for the next steps.
  4. Buffing: Post sanding, the floors are buffed professionally to remove any marks caused by the sanding process. This step is crucial to ensure a completely smooth floor, ready for the sealing and staining phase.
  5. Sealing and Staining: This is the transformative step where your wood floors begin to regain their lost glory. The floors are sealed for protection and then stained to enhance their natural beauty. The choice of stain will depend on your personal preference and the type of wood.
  6. Final Inspection: The process concludes with a final inspection to ensure that the refinishing work meets KIWI’s high-quality standards. Our job is only complete when your floors look impeccable, and you’re fully satisfied.

Rejuvenating Hardwood Floors: Buff and Recoat

KIWI’s meticulous buff and recoat process efficiently erases minor blemishes and reinstates the floor’s protective layer. Experience the satisfaction of a fresh, rejuvenated look with our top-notch hardwood floor cleaning services.

Buff and Recoat Process

Hardwood floors buffing and recoating, also known as screen and recoat, is a maintenance procedure designed to rejuvenate worn-out hardwood floors. This process can take care of minor scratches and marks, giving your floors a fresh, new look. Here’s how it’s typically done:

  • Preparation: The first step involves clearing the room of all furniture and rugs. The floor needs to be entirely bare before work can begin.
  • Cleaning: Before starting the buffing process, the floor must be thoroughly cleaned. Any dust or dirt left on the floor can cause scratches during buffing.
  • Buffing: Buffing is the process of lightly sanding the floor with a mechanical buffer or a sanding screen. This removes the old coat of polyurethane but doesn’t damage the wood.
  • Vacuuming and Tack Cloth: After buffing, vacuum up the dust, then wipe the floor with a dampened tack cloth to ensure all remaining dust is removed.
  • Recoating: Once the floor is completely clean, it’s time to recoat. The new coat of finish (typically polyurethane) is applied in a thin layer with a high-quality brush or applicator. It’s crucial to let each layer dry thoroughly before adding another one.
  • Drying: After applying the finish, it needs to dry. The drying time depends on the type of finish used but is typically between 24 to 48 hours. During this time, it’s essential to keep the area free from foot traffic and airborne dust.
    Reassembling the Room: Once the finish is completely dry, you can carefully move your furniture and rugs back into the room.

This buff and recoat process does not fix deep scratches, gouges, or stains. If your floor has these, you may need to consider a more intensive sanding and refinishing project.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the difference between wood floor refinishing and rescreening?
Wood floor refinishing involves sanding down the surface of the wood to remove old finishes, stains, and imperfections, followed by applying a new stain and protective sealant. Rescreening, or buffing and recoating, involves lightly sanding the existing finish to remove minor scratches and then applying a new coat of polyurethane. Refinishing is more intensive and addresses deeper damage, while rescreening is for surface-level maintenance.

How long does the wood floor refinishing process take?
The wood floor refinishing process typically takes 3 to 5 days, depending on the area’s size and the damage’s extent. This includes sanding, buffing, applying multiple coats of stain and sealant, and allowing each layer to dry thoroughly. The drying time is crucial to ensure a durable and lasting finish.

Can all types of wood floors be refinished?
Most hardwood floors, including oak, maple, cherry, and engineered hardwood, can be refinished with a thick enough wear layer. However, some floors, like laminate or certain types of engineered wood with thin veneers, may not be suitable for refinishing. It’s essential to consult a professional to assess whether your specific flooring can undergo the refinishing process.

How often should hardwood floors be refinished?
Hardwood floors should typically be refinished every 7 to 10 years, depending on the level of foot traffic, wear, and tear. High-traffic areas may require frequent refinishing, while less-used spaces can go longer between treatments. Regular maintenance, such as rescreening, can extend the time between full refinishing projects, keeping your floors looking their best.

What are the benefits of professional wood floor refinishing?
Professional wood floor refinishing offers several benefits, including restoring your floors’ original beauty and luster, increasing their lifespan, and adding value to your home. The process removes deep scratches, stains, and imperfections, providing a new look. Additionally, professional refinishing ensures a high-quality, durable finish that DIY methods may not achieve, protecting your investment for years.
