Are you looking for someone to refinish your old, run-down hard wood floor? Real Wood Floors offers hardwood floor refinishing services in southwest Michigan. For over 20 years, our experts have brought life back to old floors, and we’re ready to start on your project!

Considering that hardwood floors are not cheap and how they can increase the value of your property, you likely want to do everything in your power to care for them. Over time, the finish can wear off, leaving your floors vulnerable and creating wood that is more susceptible to stains and damage.

The good news is Real Wood Floors has 20 years of experience doing hardwood floor refinishing in southwestern Michigan. We are up for the task of bringing even the weariest hardwood floors back to life.

Determining the Need for Hardwood Floor Refinishing

First off, Real Wood Floor’s team will need to identify whether or not your flooring would benefit from a refinish. It’s possible that it only needs a proper cleaning, oiling, or sealing. However, if we suspect deeper problems – you likely need hardwood floor refinishing.

The Process of Refinishing a Hardwood Floor

restoring hardwood flooringReal Wood Floors will set up a time to refinish your hardwood floor back to its original beauty. Here are the steps you can expect:

  • Sanding and buffing with the appropriate grit to preserve the flooring, while reaching healthy wood.
  • Vacuum thoroughly
  • Staining to desired color – we recommend browsing DuraSeal’s stain gallery when choosing your stain
  • Applying multiple coats of protective finish to the specified sheen (Bona Traffic HD)

Though this process might seem easy enough, it’s not an ideal job for a first time flooring do-it-yourselfer (DIY). Many individuals have tried to refinish their floor, only to over-sand or leave streaks in the finish. We have the experience to offer a like-new result. Additionally, this process requires expensive tools, like an industrial sander and buffer. Luckily, Real Wood Floors can help you achieve a great result.
