Home / Sanding

Refinishing your hardwood floors is a great way to make your living space more beautiful while also increasing the value of your home. The sanding process is integral to the final product because it levels the floor and helps bring back the beauty in the grain of the wood. Sanding can also be very difficult, time consuming and can leave mounds of dust and debris floating around in your home.

NY NJ Flooring is a full service hardwood floor company located in New Jersey that specializes in hardwood floor installation and refinishing, paying special attention to the sanding process. Our expert technicians have extensive experience with the process and use the latest sanding tools on the market to provide you with an exquisite finished product.

Sanding Steps:

  1. We generally begin sanding by using a drum sander beginning in the middle of your room and moving outward into the room, with the grain, to prevent any scratching.
  2. Once we have finished sanding the majority of the floor with the drum sander, we follow with a sander that can reach the corners and other areas that cannot be accessed with the large sanding equipment. Special care is given to the corners and other areas that meet the walls and we often do some of this work by hand.
  3. We vacuum up the debris from this first pass and repeat this process as needed using smaller grit sandpaper with each pass.
  4. After the last sanding pass, we take special care to vacuum and wipe down the flooring with a dry cloth to remove any remaining debris. At that time, your floors are ready to be stained or polyured.

Dust Free Guarantee

NYNJ Flooring does not consider a project complete until you are fully satisfied that we have removed all dust and debris related to the refinishing process. It’s our dust free guarantee! We close off the room that we are working from the rest of your house and cover all of the vents to help contain the dust. At the conclusion of our work, we will consult with you to be sure that you are happy with the finished product.
