HARDWOOD FLOOR RECOATING
If your hardwood floors are looking dull, perhaps it’s time for a buff and recoat. The National Wood Flooring Association recommends recoating your hardwood floors every 2-3 years, depending on the amount of traffic in your home and the type of elements to which your floor has been exposed.
Regular cleaning with a professional cleaning product, such as Citra Sheen, helps to keep your floor’s finish looking new, but over time, it becomes necessary to apply a new coat of finish for continued protection and to maintain that shine.
Lifetime Hardwood Floors is your go-to refinisher for existing hardwood floors. With more than 30 years’ worth of experience in the business, we know how to address nearly any problem you might encounter in an old floor. In just a few days, we will bring back your floor’s natural brilliance and beauty, and we’ll do it dust-free, thanks to our powerful Bona X Atomic Dust Containment System. Since dust is a known carcinogen, and some of the varnishes used on older floors contain high levels of lead, keeping every speck of dust out of your home is an important consideraton for the health of your family and your pets.
Whether you’re refinishing a worn-out or damaged floor or you want to change the color of your hardwood floors, refinishing is a less expensive option than a new installation. The refinishing process involves sanding down the old sealer and the topmost layer of wood so that the surface becomes new again. After repairing and staining the floor, we finish it with two coats of low-odor, low-VOC, water-based sealer.
Refinishing your floors refreshes your home and restores grandeur to your rooms. But sometimes, a visit from The Floor Doctor* for a deep clean or a re-coat may be all you need to restore original beauty to your old floors. Contact us today for more information and a free quote.
Lifetime Hardwood Floors is proud to be the only hardwood flooring business in the region that offers LED-curing. While water-based finishes typically take 72 hours to cure, LED curing takes the drying time down to a split second of LED light exposure. This curing method has been used in dentistry for decades, but the technology has only recently been harnessed by the hardwood flooring industry to provide instant curing and a solvent- and VOC-free finish. Although LED curing is more expensive than other curing methods, it has many benefits over air and UV curing.
ZERO SOLVENTS AND VOCs. The finish used with LED curing doesn’t create any odor or ozone, and it emits zero VOCs and solvents. This makes it particularly ideal for busy locations like restaurants, hospitals, malls, and school gymnasiums that can’t afford to be closed for days, only to open back up with a lingering odor. The toxin- and fume-free nature of LED curing is also a great option for pregnant households, young children, and people who have allergies, a chemical sensitivity, or a respiratory illness like asthma or COPD.
EASY TOUCH-UPS. LED curing allows for touch-ups without having to re-coat the whole floor, making regular maintenance far more cost-effective. This is especially true for commercial spaces that see a lot of heavy traffic in certain areas, such as where chairs slide across the floor in a restaurant or in the center of a dance floor. Lifetime Hardwood Floors will show up once you’re closed, heat up and fix the area that needs TLC, reapply the coating, and LED cure it once more. By the time you open the next morning, the damage will be restored, and your customers won’t smell a thing.
SUPERIOR STAIN AND WATER RESISTANCE. The finishes used with LED curing are hardwax oil products, which penetrate deeply into the wood and provide superior water and stain resistance.
HARDER FLOORS. LED curing produces harder floors that are more scratch- and scuff-proof than air- or UV-cured floors. This makes LED curing ideal for both residential and commerical spaces that see heavy traffic. Not only will the floor need fewer recoats over its lifetime, but it’ll resist everyday scuffing and scratching so your floors look great with minimal maintenance.
If eco-friendly, odorless, and solvent- and VOC-free refinishing or recoating sounds too good to be true, think again, and call Lifetime Hardwood Floors for a free estimate.
