The finest tools
and experienced professionals.

Most hardwood floors can be sanded and refinished multiple times over their lifetime. For these reasons hardwood floors last beyond a lifetime and are one of the most desirable floor coverings in remodeling and new construction industry.

Michigan Hardwood Floor Services specializes in sanding, refinishing of new and existing hardwood flooring, stairs, as well as restoration of historic hardwood floors. A home’s staircase provides the first impression that greets visitors when they walk into a home. Wooden stairs, which are often the main point of the entry’s design, surround the home with a warm welcoming aura. While the process of refinishing your stairs may be tedious and time-consuming, the finished product is worth more than the work. Rest be assured though, this is what most of our jobs revolve around – beautifully restoring hardwood floors without the dust, scent, and hassle of traditional hardwood floor refinishing.

Our sanding and refinishing process is enhanced by the use of high-tech dustless sanding system – the Atomic Trailer – which generates 99.8% less dust than traditional sanding and is highly recommended for those suffering from allergies and asthma.

Although this may not be apparent, the sanding process depends on the floor’s shape and quality. We usually start the sanding process with the finest grid possible, which takes less time and wastes less hardwood. For the following step, leveling, we use the next consecutive grit of sandpaper – we never jump more than one grit. After sanding and buffing, we employ the most thorough vacuuming process to remove all dirt and dust that could potentially impair the finish quality (finish as the final outcome or finish as in the product – satin/semi-gloss finish). Next, we apply three coast of high-quality commercial-grade urethane and buff the hardwood floor between coats. This process eliminates the grain raising and knocks down any imperfections, creating the smoothest surface possible for the last coat of finish.

Each time a floor is sanded, the appearance can be tailored to fit the decoration scheme of the room or area where the floor is installed. One of the highlights of receiving these on-site services is our ability to customize the color after installation.

Wood species, Walnut and Brazilian Cherry, are as unique as the tree they come from. They have a lot of character, and their beautiful natural color surpasses any stain on the market. Though the trend nowadays leans more towards medium to dark shades, we can provide you with a custom stain to most closely fit the vision of your project.

For more common solid hardwood like White or Red Oak, there are more options. One can keep the natural color, if you want to see the real wood and the fingerprint of the grain or a medium or dark brown shade can be applied, to fit the décor of the room. To produce the desired effect of the stain above wood, we always water pop the floor when using medium to dark stain. Water popping a floor opens the grain and allows the floor to take the stain uniformly throughout the whole floor.

When it comes to finishes, we specialize in water-based finishes because not only are they environmentally friendly, GreenGuard Certified, and very durable, they also have a clear appearance and will resist turning yellow over time. They have a mild odor when applied and will dry in about two to three hours.

The master craftsman of our team is a consummate professional and cares deeply about the quality of his work. What separates us from other hardwood refinishing companies is our craftsmanship combined with the latest wood floor sanding equipment and materials usage. We believe that craftsmanship is timeless. Michigan Hardwood Floor Services works wonders with the old floor by sanding, treating, and refinishing, so your floor looks and feels better than new.
