Screening & Recoating

Screening and recoating is a process that involves removing the top coat of your existing floor and applying a new one to remove light scratches and water marks.

Some Things to Consider:

  • This process will not remove any deep scratches, gouges, or other deeply embedded marks from the floor.
  • This process may fail and cause a new coat of polyurethane not to adhere properly to the floor if it has been cleaned using the following products:
    • Murphy’s Oil Soap
    • Old English polish
    • Mop and Glow
    • Hhousehold detergent

Waxing

Waxing is a process used to rejuvenate an older floor that looks dry or brittle.

Process:

Buff the existing floor with steel wool to remove any excess dirt or waxy buildup.

Next, a fresh coat of paste wax is applied and buffed into the floor.

Lastly, the floor is buffed again with a polishing pad.

Some Things to Consider:

  • This process will not remove any deep scratches, gouges, or other deeply embedded marks.
  • Waxing is best used on older floors that look dry/brittle.  It is not suitable for floors with a polyurethane finish.
  • Waxing is a more appropriate choice for floors that have been cleaned with products that tend to limit screening recoating.
