1. Floor Preparation:

2. Inspect the Floor:
uick inspection to make sure there are no large nails or screws protruding from the surface. If there are, we set them using the appropriately sized nail set.

3. Cross-Cut the Floor:
Cross-cutting is achieved by sanding slightly across the grain at about a 30 degree angle with the big machine in order to “flatten” the floor.

4. Rough-Sanding:
Using 50 grit on the big machine, we burnish the 36 grit cross-cut lines out by sanding with the grain.

5. Vacuum & Filler:
We vacuum the floor well and set any nails or staples that are not below the surface. On older floors, we will spot fill nail holes, staple holes and chip-outs. On new floors, we will spot fill staple holes, nail holes, chip outs and any gapping between floor boards.

6. Final Sanding:
Using 80 or 100 grit (depending on the wood species) on the big machine, we’ll sand off the wood filler and sand out the 50 grit lines.

7. Final Edging:
Using 80 or 100 grit (depending on the wood species) on the edger, we will sand out the rough edging lines and smooth out the transition to where the big machine stops at the wall.

8. Random Orbit Sander:
Using 100 grit on a random orbit sander, we blend the transition from the big machine to the edging. We also sand all the doorways to prevent profiling from the edger. Profiling is when you can see anything the edger had sanded after the finish was applied.

9. Random Orbit Sander (for staining only):
If the floor is to be stained, we make sure to sand out all edging lines with a random orbit sand. This is a vital process for preventing edger “swirls” (sanding marks left by the edger) from being highlighted by the stain.

10. Scrape the Corners (Old Floors):
Using a small hand scraper, we remove any finish in the corners or any place the edger couldn’t reach, such as no sings and around radiators.

11. Vacuum the Floor:
Buffing comes next. But before we can polish the floor, we vacuum in order  to remove any debris or sanding grit that may get in the way.

12. Buffing:
Using the satellite with 120 grit discs, we buff the floor taking extra care to smooth out the transition from the big machine to the edging.

13. Water-Popping (for staining only):
Water-popping refers to  wiping the entire floor down with a wet rag. This opens up and raises the grain of the floor to better accept the stain. In other words, the floor “pops up.” This is a crucial step to achieving professional results when staining the floor. No areas must be skipped when water popping or it will be very apparent once the stain is applied.

14. Tape Off Areas:
To prevent stain or sealer from ruining the surfaces, we tape off any areas that you wouldn’t want stained – like carpet.

15. Apply Sealer or Stain:
We begin applying sealer or stain depending on the color you desired.

16. Apply Finish Coats:
Here, we add the finish coats to the floor according to the “finish package” you select.
