Dustless Hardwood Floor Refinishing Keeps Your Charlotte Home Clean
The Hardwood Giant provides dustless hardwood floor refinishing when we do your hardwood flooring in Charlotte. The days of a messy, dust-filled landscape following the refinishing of hardwood floors are a thing of the past thanks to our Dust Containment Systems from Bona & Clarke.
These dust containment systems use powerful suction that sucks the dust from sanding right into a sealed tube and disposes it outside of your home in our dust containment bin. These professional systems never even give dust the opportunity to pollute the air in your home. Its strong vacuum leaves your floors dust free for the best results when staining and sealing. This sanding process is super convenient, plus it’s environmentally friendly too because no chemicals are needed for stripping the old finish.
In the old days of floor sanding and refinishing, you would have to seal off the rest of your home and even then, dust would collect in the duct system and get into every room. With the dustless hardwood refinishing equipment, your duct work is clean and there’s no way any dust can settle back on your floor to mar its perfect finish.
The Hardwood Floor Refinishing Process In Your Charlotte, NC Home
The hardwood floor refinishing process starts with sanding your hardwood floor with a rough paper to eliminate any depressions, dings, or inconsistencies, and to create a solid foundation to assure the best adhesion of your urethane. Moving to finer sandpaper, we remove all scratches from the initial sanding.
Because we use different machines for the main floor and edges, during the third and final round of sanding, we buff the floor with a screen to bring the edges and main floor together before applying stain or urethane. Following all sanding and buffing, we employ the most thorough vacuuming process to remove all dirt and dust that could impair the finish quality.
Next, we apply three coats of high-quality commercial grade urethane. You also can choose a variety of hardwood floor stain colors to create a truly unique hardwood floor for your home. Here are more details about your stain options.
Before applying the final coat, we will buff the hardwood floor to knock down any imperfections, creating the smoothest surface possible. We use commercial grade oil & H20 finish by Bona, Glitsa, PoloPlaz & Synteko. These products will extend the life of your floor and are applied for high traffic areas in residential & commercial wood floors.

Charlotte – Hardwood Floor Refinishing
Hardwood flooring can add beauty and elegance to any home in Charlotte, North Carolina; however, if the floor is dented, scratched, discolored or worn, it may take away from the appeal of the home, potentially decreasing its overall value. However, if your floors consist of hardwood, and they are less than perfect, your hardwood floors have the potential to look amazing once again! Just contact The Hardwood Giant Co. at 704.251.7279. We have the experienced hardwood floor refinishing craftsmen you need to restore the beauty that your wood floors have lost.
Scuff Marks, Scratches and Dents Can All Be Addressed with Refinishing
It is common for hardwood floors to sustain scuff marks and become worn over time. In addition, high heels and a pet’s untrimmed nails can wreak havoc on these floors. The UV rays of the sun can cause areas of a hardwood floor to appear faded or discolored. While these issues are disheartening, the good news is that The Hardwood Giant Co. can address each of these problems and return your hardwood flooring to its previous glory! We can accomplish this by refinishing your floors. You may choose to restore your hardwood floor to its previous color or change it up with something new.
Dust-Free Hardwood Floor Refinishing in Charlotte, North Carolina
Our skilled craftsmen can refinish your floors to make them look like new. In the past, hardwood floor refinishing was an inconvenient and messy process. The rooms in the home that were being sanded and refinished had to be sealed off from the rest of the home. Even then, the dust collected in the duct system and was then dispersed throughout the home anyway. However, cutting-edge technology has made this process less daunting. At The Hardwood Giant Co., we use Bona and Clarke Dust Containment Systems (DCS). These systems have improved the hardwood floor refinishing process tremendously by eliminating the accumulation of dust that occurs throughout the sanding process.
How Our DCS System Works
With the DCS, as our craftsman sands the floor, the dust is immediately sucked up into a sealed tube and then disposed of in our dust containment bin, which sits outside of the client’s home in Charlotte, North Carolina. Since the dust is immediately transported to an outside bin, it never even has the opportunity to enter the air in the home. Furthermore, these dust containment systems eliminate the need for hours of cleanup before the staining and sealing process can begin. In addition, whereas some companies use chemicals to strip the old finish off the floor, our sanding process does not require the use of chemicals, therefore, it is an environmentally friendly process.

What to Expect During the Hardwood Floor Refinishing Process in Charlotte
Sanding and Buffing
The first step of the hardwood floor refinishing process is sanding the floor with rough sandpaper. This initial sanding process eliminates any inconsistencies, depressions and scratches in the floor.
A Solid Foundation
Once the initial sanding is complete, the floor has a solid foundation. A solid foundation ensures that the urethane adheres properly. Next, we use a finer sandpaper to remove any scratches that were left behind following the initial sanding process. Since we use a variety of machines while sanding the main floor and its edges, we buff the floor during the third round of sanding. This buffing process is completed using a screen that brings the main floor and its edges together.
A Thorough Vacuuming
Our DCS system has made sanding hardwood floors a much cleaner process; however, the buffing process will create a bit of debris. Therefore, once buffing is complete, we remove this debris using an extremely thorough vacuuming process. This is a very important step because any dirt or dust that is left behind could impair the quality of your new floor’s finish.
Staining the Floor
After the floor is thoroughly vacuumed, we can begin the staining process. At The Hardwood Giant Co., we offer a variety of stain colors for wood floors. So, you can change the look of your room by choosing something new, or just choose a color that closely resembles the original one. Remember that if you are not quite sure what to do, you can always ask for suggestions from our craftsmen.
Following staining, we apply high-quality commercial grade urethane. To ensure durability, we apply three coats of this urethane during the hardwood floor refinishing process.
Buffing and Applying the Last Coat of Urethane
Prior to the application of the final coat, we buff the floor and vacuum one last time. By buffing the floor, we eliminate any surface imperfections in the urethane itself to create the smoothest floor surface possible.
We Use Quality Products to Extend the Life of Your Hardwood Floors
At The Hardwood Giant Co., we use high-quality, commercial-grade products that are designed to extend the life of your hardwood floors.
