The Process - Buff & Coat
A properly maintained hardwood floor can easily last a lifetime. An important part of keeping your hardwood flooring in tip-top shape is the buff and coat. Every 3 to 5 years a hardwood floor should undergo a buff & coat procedure which will extend and maintain the beauty and performance of your valuable hardwood flooring.
The buff and coat process is very simple, we screen the hardwood floor surface (abrade the finish surface) this prepares the hardwood surface for adhesion of a new coat of finish. Next we vaccum the hardwood surface using commercial grade vaccum cleaners and we tack-rag the entire wood surface to remove any left over contaminants, dirt, sand or debris. The next step is to apply either an oil base or water base polyurethane finish which will dry overnight to a hard, protective finish.
