Perhaps you like the look of hardwood flooring, but don’t want to deal with the damage that may befall it.
Before you consider replacing your flooring, take a moment to consider repairing and staining your floors instead! We offer floor repair services in Chicago area with a wide variety of options for hardwood and laminate enthusiasts who wish to repair and protect their flooring!
Why Hardwood Floor is a Great Option
Hardwood flooring is a timeless look that can make your house feel like a home. While hardwood can be pricey, it is a symbol of class and elegance. Restoring and keeping your hardwood healthy may seem like more trouble than it’s worth, but if it is done correctly, you can maintain their beauty for years. Aesthetics aside, hardwood and laminate are extremely practical. If you’re a pet owner or have children, you know that accidents can be a common occurrence.
Cleaning and replacing carpet can be both times consuming and expensive, not to mention all the dust and dander that can accumulate within the carpet itself, which can also be a nightmare for people with allergies. Hardwood and laminate offer a beautiful alternative to carpet without the hassle of having carpet. If you love the comfort that carpet offers, hardwood or laminate floors with a nice, sophisticated area rug can be a great way to get the best of both worlds. Not only are rugs on hard flooring a refined and attractive look, but rugs are infinitely easier to clean, as opposed to carpet.

If you’re in need of extreme restoration, the scope of our services goes well beyond a simple stain proofing and waxing. Some services we offer include:
Dustless Wood and Floor Refinishing – This is the process of sanding down a damaged spot while using a dust containment system, effectively eliminating 60 to 90% of the dust. You get the benefit of a beautifully finished floor without the inconvenience of a huge mess.
Wood Sanding – This process entails removing the existing layers of coating, exposing the bare wood by using sanding machines. This is a great option if your floors have gouges or scrapes that cannot be simply buffed out.
Staining – While this process may not seem like the most difficult, it is extremely important in refurbishing and maintaining your floor. The complexity of staining varies from floor to floor; darker stains will reveal more imperfection in terms of sanding, opposed to lighter stains. To prevent darker stains from showing sanding imperfections, additional preparation and sanding may be required. The floor being refurbished will also undergo a wash during this stage to ensure an even stain application.
Coating – This stage of the process will take place after the stain has dried. In this process, you have a few different options in terms of what type of coating you wish to use. We offer water based, oil based, and acid cured finishes. Compatibility between stains and coating must be assessed. For water-based coating, the stain has to be completely dry but offers a low odor option. A minimum of three coats with buffing in between coats offers the best results.
