Revive, Restore or Refinish My Floors

A strong maintenance routine is the key to the longevity and durability of your floors. Staying active with a daily maintenance routine is the first line of defense, but daily cleaning alone will not protect your floor's finish forever. A floor's finish will go through normal wear and tear over the years and will need attention. Reviving, restoring and refinishing your floors are great ways to increase the longevity of your floors and protect your investment. Each method is an effective way to go beyond regular cleaning.

Revive

 

Process: An initial dry mopping is done to remove major debris and particles. Then, a deep cleaning machine is used to get into the small areas that dusting can't.

Benefits: The most cost effective way to rejuvinate your floors. No need to leave your home.

Time: Floors will be ready in a few hours.

Restore

 

Purpose: Replaces the finish of your floor, the main layer of protection.

Process: Floor is deep cleaned, rinsed and prepped. A new coat of finish is then applied.

Benefits: The most cost effective way to rejuvinate your floors. No need to leave your home.

Time: Floors will be ready overnight.

Refinish

 

Process: Completely renovate your floors.

Process: Floor is sanded down to the bare wood. A sealer or stain is applied, as well as a new finish.

Benefits: Fixes major damage like deep scratches/ gouges, discoloration and fading. A great opportunity to update the look of your floor.

Time: Floors will be ready in 2-4 days.
