Buffing and Recoating
The best way to start this is to have us come out and look at your project. We can definitely do it over the phone but the very
best way is to have us come out to the site so, we can take a look at the project is person. We want to make sure that the buff and
coat is going to give you the look that you want. Some on the deeper scratches and dents do not come out with a buff and coat
they become more enhanced. This is the reason why it is best for us to look at the job so that we can go over this with you. Several
days before we arrive to the job site we will be recommending for you to clean your floors with Tri Sodium Phosphate (TSP)
to remove any oil or grease or cleaning residue left on your hardwood floors. If you do not want to clean your floors with the TSP we
can do this service for you also. This will insure better adhesion for the finish that we are applying. The day we arrive to your
job we will buff your floors with a screen or a pad to remove your top coat of finish to eliminate surface scratches and scuff marks.
By using a screen or a pad we are removing these scratches and scuff marks before we apply the finish. This process is done with our
Dust Containment Systems, so very little dust is left behind any extra dust will be hand cleaned so we can get a smooth finish on your floors.
Different way to buff or recoat your floor
Some hardwood floor buffing and recoating companies have made a business of just buffing and coating floors. These companies will tell you no dust, no odor this is true.
But, it is not the way professional floor companies recommended doing this process on most floors. What they do is come in and spray a
chemical on your floor and then buff this chemical into the floor to etch it so that you get good bond with the coat they are going to apply.
They apply waterbase urethanes. They never removed any scratches from the floor or polyurethane. All they did when they applied the coat
of finish is try to hide the scratches and scuff marks not remove them. With this process they did not remove a coat of urethane they built it up
so that the floors look more like plastic with the build up of coats. With the finish we always recommend if you have a oil base finish you
should stay with a oil base finish same applies to water based urethanes.
