Sandless floor refinishing, on the other hand, involves lightly scoffing the surface, applying an etching chemical to the surface and then applying clear coats of finish. Here, NO major sanding is involved, and it is essentially comparable to the last step of the traditional hardwood refinishing process.
Sandless refinishing is a great option for floors that are still in overall good condition, but are beginning to show signs of wear and tear. By doing sandless refinishing, you can extend the service life and good looks of your hardwood, and put off complete refinishing by another 5-7 years.
The following are major advantages of sandless hardwood flooring refinishing:
– Costs half the price or less compared to traditional refinishing.
– Takes only a day to complete, compared to 2-5 days it takes to complete traditional hardwood refinishing.
– Clean, nearly dust-free procedure.
