During refinishing, professionals use a drum sander and sand away a thin layer of flooring. After sanding, the floors are buffed, removing sanding marks and giving the floors a smooth finish. Once complete, you can apply a stain or sealant to the floors.

The right stain can highlight the natural beauty of your hardwood floors and make them look new. Staining is also a fantastic way to change the appearance of your flooring. Applying a sealant can protect the wood and keep floor boards from separating. Sealing can also extend the lifespan of stains and other finishes.

If your hardwood floors show wear, refinishing can remove visible damage. Sanding down your floors can remove stains, scratches, and other signs of damage. Usually, the layer that's sanded away is paper thin, which means it's possible to refinish floors more than once. Talk to a floor refinishing company to find out more.
