How do we do hardwood floor refinishing?

Step 1

We prepare the rooms and set up required equipment

Before any floor sanding takes place, the entire area needs to be spotless. No job begins without adequately preparing the space first. This means that any nails will be removed, and if floor repairs are necessary, the repairs will take place before the sanding starts. Then, our floor professionals will set up the dustless floor sanding equipment, followed by sweeping, and vacuuming the entire area. Our work is clean to perform a professional job.

Step 2

Sanding down the floor to bare natural wood

Once the wood is restored to its natural state, our professionals will begin to remove rough sanding marks. Using a higher grit of sandpaper, we’re able to create a perfect, beautiful smooth surface. If this were a new wood floor installation, it’s during step 3 that a professional would fill the floor with putty.

Step 3

Detailed fine sanding and filler

Once all the previous steps are completed, it's time to install the hardwood floor. Depending on the type of hardwood flooring material, a few different techniques are used to establish the flooring. In the Toronto area, the most popular installation technique is the glue-down method. Do you have questions about other installation methods? Rest assured, we are here to help!

Step 4

Attention to detail finishes and clean up

At this point, everything is done by hand. We pay close attention to detail to touch up any final needs. We use hand scrapers to reach difficult to reach spots that the sanders cannot reach. We work hard to reach under radiators, corners, and along the sides of trim. By standing these tough to reach areas by hand, we’re able to provide 100% customer satisfaction. Of course, no job is complete without a professional clean-up and vacuum to get ready for step 5.

Step 5

Hardwood floor staining (optional)

If you want to change the colour of your hardwood floor, this is your chance! At this stage, we apply pre-colour treatments or stain, to match your desired outcome. In Toronto, we are the hardwood floor staining experts. Always be sure to hire professionals who are experienced with wood staining as the flooring project can go wrong very quickly without the right experience and skill.

Step 6

Apply the finishing coats

Now, it’s time to apply the finish. Depending on the type of finish you desire, more or less coats will be required. For example, multi-coat finishes require the floor to breath between coats. We always vacuum to eliminate any debris to ensure a fully contaminant-free clean surface.

Information to consider

Have you refinished your hardwood floors before? Floors can only be refinished so many times before they become too thin, and therefore cannot be sanded anymore. This is between 3-6 refinishing’s.

When the hardwood floor cannot be refinished anymore, a new hardwood floor will need to be installed. .

Our speciality service involves diagnosing if your floor can be refinished. It’s very important to not work with a hardwood floor company that will not grind off more surface than required, which would reduce the lifespan of your precious hardwood floors.

Thanks to years of experience, we do a beautiful and professional job of removing as little of the surface layer as possible. We always know what is best for the kind of hardwood floor you have. .

With KMAX flooring, receive the desired beautiful finish that you want, without damaging the lifespan of your floor. We ensure your floor has plenty of surface required if you wish to refinish the floors again in the future.
