Sandless Floor Refinishing (Screen & Coat)
Sandless Floor Reﬁnishing (also called buff & recoat) is a hassle free alternative to sanding and reﬁnishing solid and engineered wood ﬂoors.
This process is a maintenance or sprucing up procedure for ﬂoors that have not yet worn to the point of needing a full sand & reﬁnish. Buff and recoat can be done in just a couple of hours. Businesses love this process because we can come in at closing and have the ﬂoors dried for opening the next morning.
Periodical deep cleanings with the Bona Deep Clean machine or a Basic Coating Dirt Dragon will extend the life of your floor. The buff & recoat process involves bufﬁng the ﬂoors to remove surface scuffs and scratches. Tom & Peter Flooring uses state-of-the-art ﬂoor buffers that hook right up to a vacuum system. This makes the bufﬁng process virtually dust free. It is usually recommended for dull floors that are in good shape, rather than wood floors that need refinishing. Screen and coats should be completed as maintenance every couple of years to floors that have been recently sanded.
After the ﬂoor has been buffed and thoroughly cleaned, we apply a coating of an odorless, fast drying, fast curing & extremely durable Bona® ﬂoor ﬁnish. Choose between oil and water-based ﬁnish; available in satin, semi-gloss, and gloss.
Please note: The buff and recoat procedure will not remove scratches, dents, or dings that have penetrated the top layer of ﬁnish. Generally ﬂoors that have not had much attention in 7 years or more will not be able to get away with this process. Also, ﬂoors that are discolored, or have areas that the ﬁnish has completely worn off cannot be recoated.
