Floor Sanding

Wood floor resurfacing is the process of restoring an existing dull or worn finish on a hardwood floor. This process sands off the old coatings and exposes the wood underneath, often dents, gouges, and stains are also removed. Once the floor has been sanded and stripped, a floor sander will control polishers, buffers, and hand sanders to detail the wood beforehand staining and coating.

After final detailing, the floor finish products are mixed and hand applied by roller or applicator tool. Contractors will prepare their coating equipment and your home to ensure the best possible finish. Strict environmental conditions must be observed to allow wood floor finishes and stains to dry effectively.

After resurfacing is complete, the home is vacated and secured allowing the products to dry undisturbed.

Why do we choose to use water-based finishes?

Island Floor Finishing recommends and uses water-based based polyurethane for our wood floor resurfacing projects. Water-based coatings contain water instead of solvents, modern water-based finishes are 100% polyurethane and provide wear resistance that is better or as good as solvent based products – without the fumes. For instance, floors in commercial premises are routinely coated with water-based finishes as there is minimal disturbance to the commercial operation.  In these situations having good wear resistance is as necessary as a low odor finish. This is why we recommend commercial grade water-based floor finishes.

When is it safe to return home?

If you have your wood floors resurfaced with Island Floor Finishing, there is no need to move out during the resurfacing of your floor.  Resurfacing can be carried out in areas of your home while you remain in surrounding rooms of the house. When resurfacing the entire living areas of your home we suggest vacating for the duration of the floor sanding and coating process. After applying the final coat, homeowners can return the following day with full curing after 30-60 days. When using water-based floor finishes there is no harmful off-gassing common with oil and solvent based finishes. We strive to ensure a stress-free floor sanding and polishing service in Nanaimo and surrounding areas of Vancouver Island.
