Below, we explain how a transformation is made possible during our dustless hardwood floor refinishing process.
If you have carpet on your hardwood floors at this time, the first step is to remove it. We provide complete carpet removal surface, including the disposal of all related materials.
At this time, all repairs, which often require the replacement of existing boards with undamaged, reclaimed or new wood, occur before the sanding process.
To remove the floor finish, including any build up of wax or dirt, we use coarse grit sandpaper, working up to a finer grit. Thoughtful sanding will ensure the minimum amount of actual wood is removed from your floors. The depth of the sanding will be influenced by the overall condition of the floor including the existence of deep scratches, dents and stains.
Our dustless hardwood floor refinishing system ensures dust, finish, dirt and wax is contained at the sanding source before becoming airborne. Keeping your home clean and free of contaminants.
Buffing the entire hardwood floor with an abrasive screen blends the remaining fine sanding marks to make them virtually invisible to the unaided eye.
At this point, if a stain has been selected, the staining process begins. To help choose the color that best fits your style; we will install a medium size test area on your floor. We maintain an inventory of all Minwax stain colors in our vans which allows us to provide several color samples on your floor. You will know exactly what the final outcome will be for the colors your may be considering – no trying to guess off little stain charts or sample boards.
Your choice of either 3 coats of professional grade oil-based polyurethane or 4 coats of the best water-based polyurethane finish are applied over the course of the next several days. Drying times will vary depending on your choice of stain color, oil- or water-based polyurethane, and weather conditions.
Between each coat of finish, the floors will be buffed with an abrasive screen and the perimeter of the floors hand-sanded in preparation for the next coat.
In every case, after we have refinished your floors, we will provide you with specific guidance before you plan to move back your furniture. Given that area rugs cover larger sections of floor, we recommend that they remain off the still-curing floors for 2-4 weeks.

Dust-Free Sanding DCS…What and Why?
DCS stands for Dust Containment Sanding. Why is it revolutionary? Not only does it save you time, it is the healthiest available option for you, your family and even your pets. DCS eliminates airborne particles which traditional sanding methods cannot. With DCS you will not have dust nestling in your air ducts or lingering in your lungs. Particulate matter won’t mess up your home furnishings, or settle into your new glossy coat of finish. It’s the safe and easy choice.
E.F.C. offers the most innovative DCS design. The Bona Atomic Trailer System is Bona‘s most powerful dust containment system. It is trailer-mounted, and industrial size. It attaches to a gas powered engine outside of the home, which significantly increases airflow and dust extraction.
Dust-Free Sanding – Yes, It Exists!
The days of hanging plastic, covering every surface, and vacating your home for a dusty nightmare are over. Bona‘s innovative dust free sander, the Bona Atomic DCS, connects a powerful vacuum motor to sanding equipment. The combination virtually eliminates airborne dust generated while sanding. At the same time, Bona‘s Atomic Dust Containment Systems are the most advanced and powerful dust containment systems in the world. They are capable of reducing dust far beyond even what traditional sanding generates.
What to Expect on the Job Before Sand & Refinish/ Initial finish?
Before you begin, you should list your expectations and research your needs. Educate yourself on the process and products you’d like to use. Once you know your expectations, needs and products, you will feel comfortable and confident about the investment you are making, and you can begin getting quotes. The cost of the job will vary, depending on the contractor’s expertise, quality of work, and the products used. Some estimates are itemized, and some are comprehensive totals for the scope of the work. Just remember that estimates are just that – ESTIMATES. Everything promised by the contractor should be included in the final contract. Warranties and guarantees, work hours and project duration should also be discussed and included. You should also ask your contractor for a portfolio, specification sheets or brochures on products to be used. If someone in the home has chemical sensitivities, ask your contractor for a copy of the MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) for all the products being used. Your physician can then advise accordingly.
What to Expect on the Job During
Potential delays are out there. If you can’t determine what products are currently on your floors, it could lengthen the process. Also, temperature and relative humidity can affect your floors’ dry times. The standard for a hardwood floor is at least three coats. This consists of one seal coat (which may be the stain) and two coats of finish. Additional coats of finish may be applied depending on need. There is no need to vacate your home. Bona systems have low-VOC’s, no harmful fumes and fast dry times. You will be back on your floor in no time. Of course, Bona Systems are GREENGUARD certified for indoor air quality, making them safe for your family and home. Bona’s systems are also safe for your pets. However, it is a good idea to keep them off the floors until the finish is fully cured. This minimizes contamination, and prevents dirt and hair from collecting in the polyurethane coating of your floor.
What to Expect on the Job After?
Bona Systems minimize clean-up. Since sanding is dust-free, there is no time wasted hanging and removing plastic. A floor’s finish is susceptible to scuffing and scratching until it is fully cured. Yet, your floor can typically be walked on with stocking feet in just 3-4 hours. Furniture can be placed back on the floor (not dragged) in 72 hours. Area rugs can be put down after one week – when the finish is fully cured. Maintenance depends on the amount of traffic you have in your home. If you have children and pets, you will want to clean more regularly. We recommend dusting your floors with a dust mop daily, or every other day. You should also clean your floors regularly with a waterborne, non-toxic formula specifically formulated for hardwood floors. The Bona Hardwood Floor Mop is an easy and effective tool to start with!
Choosing the Right Help
Selecting industry professionals to assist you takes time and patience. Because every situation is different, it is vital to be well-informed and do the necessary research. Find a contractor you are comfortable working with. Selecting the right dealer for materials is also important. You should purchase your hardwood floor from a specialized dealer who not only sells flooring but can also advise you on achieving your desired result according to your budget, priorities, tastes and vision.
