The Importance of Sanding in Hardwood Floor Refinishing


Achieving Stunning Results with Harrington Hardwood Floors

The Science Behind Sanding

Sanding might seem like a straightforward process, but it’s a delicate balance of art and science. The key is to remove just enough of the old finish without damaging the wood beneath. This requires the use of specialized equipment and an in-depth understanding of wood grain and species.

Our team at Harrington Hardwood Floors uses state-of-the-art sanding machines that are designed to be gentle on your floors while effectively removing the old finish. We pay meticulous attention to the grain direction and thickness of your floorboards, ensuring a uniform and smooth surface.

The goal of sanding is to create a pristine canvas for the subsequent refinishing steps, such as staining and sealing, to work their magic. This meticulous preparation is what sets the stage for a flawless final result.

The Benefits of Proper Sanding

Proper sanding offers numerous benefits beyond just aesthetics. Here are some of the key advantages:

Enhanced Durability: Sanding removes any weakened or damaged wood fibers, making your floors more resilient and less prone to future wear and tear.
Improved Health: Sanding helps eliminate dust, allergens, and contaminants trapped in the old finish, creating a healthier indoor environment.
Better Stain Absorption: A well-sanded surface allows stains and finishes to penetrate evenly, resulting in a more vibrant and long-lasting color.
Smoother Finish: Sanding creates a smooth surface free from bumps and imperfections, ensuring a comfortable walking experience.
Increased Home Value: Refinished hardwood floors with a proper sanding job can significantly boost the value of your home.
At Harrington Hardwood Floors, we prioritize these benefits to ensure that your hardwood floor refinishing project exceeds your expectations.
