Do You Have Dull Hardwood Floors? Here’s how to bring them back to life!
My house looks great. Fresh paint and new furniture but oh those hardwood floors look warn, dull and tired. OK, what to do? Try refinishing them myself or hire a professional? How hard can it be, just run to the local rental house and rent a large orbital sander, sandpapers, a smaller sander, Large Orbital cleaner, cleaning pads and a professional vacuum machine. Now run to the big box hardware store for my tape, plastics and tarping, cleaning solutions, my wood refinishing products, stains, varnishes, and sealers. Oh heck no, what have I got myself into. I’m just going to bite the bullet and call the pros. WHAT? HOW MUCH? Up to $7.00 a foot and I have to move out for a few days? There has got to be a better way. I just want to get shine back into my floors. It’s not like I have major scrapes or gouges.
Well with Olson Marble and Stone Care there is a way. No sanding, no dust, no moving out, no huge expenses and plenty of shine!
Whether you have traditional hardwoods, prefinished wood, or laminated wood, restoring without sanding is a practical solution. Though you can sand your traditional hardwoods, it’s difficult or even impossible to sand prefinished or laminated wood floors. Why? Laminated floors (either glue-down or floating) only have a thin layer of attractive wood veneer over plywood, so you can’t sand these floors more than twice without damaging them and exposing the plywood.
As for traditional hardwoods, forgoing the sanding method saves you a lot of time, energy, and money from either hiring a professional floor refinishing company or renting all the equipment and buying all the products yourself.
The typical problem with most floors is basic wear and tear. High traffic areas beat down the protective urethane layer and not only create a dull dirty looking finish but it can also pose a risk to damaging the wood itself. When Olson Marble and Stone Care’s system is employed, it provides the needed protection barrier to keep your hardwood from severe damage.
At Olson’s we use a high-tech cleaning system with state of the art pads and cleansers which prepare the floor for the reapplication of the protective coating.
Olson Marble and Stone Care always use the very best products available and with our no sanding hardwood floor refinishing we utilize the very best high end urethane that contains a catalyst. Beware of companies that apply acrylics or inferior urethanes to your flooring.
There are four finishes available, Ultra-matte, matte, semi-gloss and gloss. In the majority of our jobs this procedure can be done in one day and can be walked on by 7pm the very same evening!
Our method is so versatile we can apply it in designated rooms or even designated areas of rooms and feather it next to adjoining rooms or areas that didn’t need refinishing and you will never see the difference!
When our No-Sanding Method will not work
* Floors that have been waxed
* Floors that have residue from other household chemicals like furniture polish, glass cleaner, insecticide (from pest control professionals), wallpaper paste, paint, and other chemical cleaners that would prevent the adhesion for a new finish
* Floors that have many deep scratches and dents that penetrate the finish as well as the wood
