Flooring fact

Buffing, recoating, screening, and re-sanding a hardwood floor should be performed by an experienced hardwood floor professional. Some hardwood floors CANNOT be successfully recoated. Those with different light exposure that has caused discoloration under area rugs, or those improperly cleaned with oil soaps, or other cleaning solutions, will contaminate the floor and cause guaranteed FAILURE. Worn areas (through the finish and/or stain) to bare wood CANNOT be re-coated to give desired results, refinishing must occur. We at Above All Hardwood Floors would rather have your repeat business for buff and coats than to not give you the proper care information and be left with no alternative than to re-sand the floor. So please read the information and stick with the recommendations that we offer to guarantee an inexpensive maintenance program.
