Apartment - Upper West Side, NY
This customer wanted the hardwood floor in their living room refinished. Over time, dirt and debris embedded in the wood floor caused the discoloration and dullness of shine seen in the photo.
This close-up photo shows a particularly damaged area of hardwood flooring. Soils embedded in the wood floor deteriorated the polyurethane over time and left the wood beneath susceptible to damage. The loss of color and shine can clearly be seen here. Also, heavy furniture was dragged over the hardwood floor. Soils then embedded themselves into the resultant scratches, causing the blackening of color seen in the photo.
This kitchen had similar problems to the rest of the hardwood floor. Although the damage was not as heavy here, scratches and discoloration were apparent throughout the area.
A reverse shot of the living area highlights the inconsistency in color and shine that the hardwood floors displayed. The area in the right of the photo has lost nearly all of it's color and shine due to the previously mentioned issues. In some situations our Sandless Finish Hardwood Floor Refinishing Specialists recommend sanding a floor - such was the case for this customer.
Our Sandless Finish Deep Sanding Method completely removes all damaged layers of wood to reveal the healthy floor beneath. This is achieved by sanding the hardwood floor in multiple passes with our specialized machinery. Our Specialists start with a rough sandpaper to deeply penetrate the hardwood floor. Subsequent passes are made with smoother and smoother grades of sandpaper until all damaged layers of wood are removed. Once the healthy wood is exposed and a smooth surface is achieved, our Specialists seal the floor and apply multiple layers of a high quality, commercial grade polyurethane to ensure maximum protection. The results can be seen in the photo.
This previously heavily-damaged area of hardwood flooring was no match for our Sandless Finish Deep Sanding Process. As you can see, all of the scratches and discoloration were completely removed!
The same results were achieved in the kitchen which now blends seamlessly with the rest of the hardwood floor!
