Water stains, scratches, dullness and whole areas worn bare by household traffic are signs that it’s time to refinish the floor.

Some wood floors require this level of work, but many others can be revitalized by screening, a process that takes off the top layer of polyurethane but doesn’t remove any wood. This relatively inexpensive technique gives you the option of doing the work yourself with little risk and saves you the cleanup and hassle associated with floor sanding.
Years after a hardwood floor is completely sanded and finished a maintenance coat is needed to sustain the floors performance and cosmetic appeal. This re-coating procedure, commonly called a ‘topcoat’, will return a hardwood floor to it’s newly refinished condition – provided it was performed within the ample period of time necessary. A quick ‘screening’ of the original polyurethane coat, with a silicon carbide sanding screen on an upright floor polishing machine [animated right], will remove any light scratches and surface dirt. This slight burnishing of the floor permits a new coating to properly adhere to the existing one. The screening process does not remove much of the existing coatings, nor does it expose the bare wood as in the full sanding procedure. It is the same as that which is performed on the last day of the original sanding and refinishing process listed above. Please note that If your hardwood floor has ever been waxed, with either liquid or paste wax, this topcoat procedure generally CAN NOT be performed. Polyurethane does not adhere to wax.
