How Do I Know When It Is Time To Refinish My Hardwood Floors?

1.If Your Hardwood Floor's Have Grey Areas 

This is a sign that the floors protection is worn. The protection is made up of sealer, polyurethane, and stain. Unfortunately, if you see grey areas the floors can not be just cleaned but refinished. 

2. If You See Scuff Marks Or Scratches 

If you see scuff marks or scratches that do not come out with just soap, water, and a non scratching sponge that means the floors protection is damaged. The only way to fix this is through a hardwood floor refinishing. 

3. If The Color Is Faded

If the color is faded that means that means the polyurethane and the stain has broken down. That means it is time to refinish your wood floors.

4. If The Wood Floors Are Dull

If the wood floors are dull they can not just be cleaned. Never use polish or waxes on your floors as they will damage the hardwood floors. A refinishing is needed. 

What To Do Next

Call a hardwood floor refinishing professional such as Wood Vitalize to give you advise. Your wood floors will need a refinishing either by a full sanding, screening, deep cleaning, restoration, sandless, and dustless hardwood floor refinishing.

How Do I Stain My Hardwood Floors? 

Oil Based Stain

You can you oil based stain on your hardwood floors. This is applied with an stain applicator. The wood floors have to be sanded to 100 grit. Start at a low grit of sanding paper and work your way up to 100 grit. Just do not jump up more than to grit grades at a time. A good grit to start is 40 grit followed by 60 grit, 80, and 100 grit. Use a drum sander and edger on all grits. Use the drum sander first than use the edger last. 

After the hardwood floors have been sanded with all your grits, buff the floors with a screen. Vacuum up the floors and use a tack cloth to wipe off fine dust. Than you floors are ready to be water popped.  Water popping is when you use a mop and apply water to the hardwood floors to open up the grains. Just soak the floors and do not leave puddles.

Finally. the stain is ready to be applied. Use a fast drying oil based stain. A bucket, cotton towels, applicator, latex gloves. and a mixing stick. Mix the stain ever five minutes with a paint stick, apply with the applicator in the direction of the wood boards, let the stain dry for 3 minutes, and wipe off in the direction of the wood boards.

How Many Days Do I Have To Let The Polyurethane Cure?

You must follow the manufacturers instructions as each polyurethane is different. The 2 key things you need to know when refinishing your floors is: The Cure Time and Walking Time. 


Cure Time

Cure time is when the floors has completed "cured" all the way through. You can still walk on the floors and place back furniture. You just have to wear socks and be careful not to drag anything as the floors can get scuffed. Most of the time people walk on the floors before they are completely cured as they dont have to move into their home.

Walking Time

Is the time you can walk on the floors as mentioned above. The polyurethane has not completely cured but the product states you can still walk on the floors in "light traffic" Again, you can walk on the floors and place back furniture (usually 24hrs) and it is not a problem. Just check the polyurethane specs to go with their recommendations. They have polyurethanes out now that are completely cured in 24hrs if you are really concerned about the durability.

Does Sanding And Refinishing  Hardwood Floors Create Dust?

A lot of dust is created when refinishing your wood floors unless a "dustless" vacuum system is used. Wood Vitalize  carries all dustless equipment and sanding tools. There is no dust when the project is going or after completion.  

Dustless sanding and refinishing of wood floor involves the right equipment and techniques. Regular edgers, drum machines, and palm sanders are not dustless.

Hepa filters remove the dust while the sanding is going on. This eliminates all debris and air contaminates.

How Many Layers Of Polyurethane Should I Use When Refinishing My Wood Floors?


There is one very simple answer. When refinishing your hardwood floors it is recommended that you use 3 layers of polyurethane and 1 coat of sealer. The sealer seals up the wood and the 3 layers of polyurethane give you the guaranteed protection. You should also buff after the 1st and 2nd layer if needed.

Before:

What Is The Best Polyurethane To Use On My Hardwood Floors?

The best polyurethane's to use on your hardwood floors are water based commercial polyurethanes such as Bona, Loba, or Street Shoe. These finishes go on after the wood floors have been sanded. 


The polyurethane will leave the wood looking light and natural. If you want a color add a stain. Do not worry about which polyurethane is the best. Once you get up to the commercial level there all great products and it becomes a matter of opinion on behalf of the refinisher.
