If your hardwood floor isn’t severely worn down and doesn’t need refinishing, you might be a great candidate for a screen and recoat service. Many people mistakenly refer to the screen and recoat process as “buffing hardood floors.” This mistake is common and somewhat founded since the machine used for the screen and recoat process is…a floor buffer. However, instead of a standard buffing pad, a thin screen is used. Using the screen on the buffing machine, the floor is lightly scuffed up. We call this process “screening” the floor. After the screening has been completed, polyurethane is applied to a floor. This part of the process is known as “recoating.”
When Should My Floors Be Screened and Recoated?
You should screen and recoat your floors every year or two depending on how much traffic your floors see. As you might imagine, some areas in your home will receive more foot traffic than others. The most important issue is to be sure to have a great floor maintenance program in place. If you allow your floors to lose their polyurethane coating, you run the risk of needing a complete hardwood floor refinishing done, which is a much costlier process than to simply screen and recoat the floor.
