Your home is your refuge and a place of beauty and comfort. Here at Kelly’s Flooring we celebrate the home by helping you maintain the beauty of your hardwood floors for life! Whether your floors need a simple Deep Cleaning or need to be sanded and completely refinished, you can count on us to give you honest, detailed information to help you make the best decision about returning your beautiful wood floors to their like new condition.
Recoating wood floors is a maintenance requirement that protects your floors for a lifetime of beauty and service. This is a 1-day process that replaces the polyurethane finish that wears off naturally over time. Recoating will fill in minor scratches and return the original shine to your floors. Deep gouges, scratches and discoloration will not be corrected with any hardwood recoat service.
Refinishing wood floors is required in a number of situations. If your floors have worn through the original finish and the wood is beginning to turn a grey color, if you want to remove dog nail dents and deep scratches, or if we are adding new wood flooring to your existing wood floors, we can achieve a perfect color match and seamless installation by refinishing the old floors at the same time. The professionals here at Southern Woods will discuss the details about your particular project and give you honest and detailed information to help you make the right choice for your home.
If you are curious to know what your floors may require, a recoat or refinishing, there is a simple test you can perform. Find the most worn or damaged place on your wood floors. Using a wet washcloth, wipe over the area leaving the floor wet and shiny with water. This is what a Recoat will look like! If it looks bad it’s time to refinish!
Whether it is Recoating or Refinishing, all of our hardwood floor services are DUST FREE. Hardwood floor sanding used to be an extremely dusty job and a clean-up headache for the homeowner. Southern Woods contains the dust by using Bona’s innovative Atomic Dust Containment Systems. These are the most advanced and powerful dust containment systems available, generating 99.8% less dust in the air than the traditional sanding process. Our Dust Free sanding system prevents the infiltration of dust into draperies, furniture, cabinets, air ducts and air conditioning systems during the sanding process. We even offer Bona’s GREENGUARD certified system which makes the hardwood floor sanding and finishing process the cleanest, healthiest, and fastest wood flooring refinishing system available to date!
