We provide a comprehensive hardwood floor refinishing service for clients in Derwood, MD, including everything you need for the most beautiful of floors. From sanding to staining to applying top coats, we handle each detail with precision and care for an end result that’s picture-perfect. The process goes as follows:
- To remove surface scratches and marks, we sand the wood floors.

When you choose us for hardwood floor maintenance in Derwood, MD, you can be confident we’ll go above and beyond to protect your home from the very beginning. Our wood flooring specialists will move your furniture to a safe, secure area and block off the neighboring rooms to prevent dust from spreading and coating your belongings. If a piece of art on the wall or another piece of furniture can’t be moved, not a problem! We’ll wrap it up to ensure protection against the dust, sand, and other debris that can form during the refinishing process. Any debris that does form in the room will be cleaned upon completion so you’ll hardly notice we were ever there—except, of course, for the newfound beauty of your flooring!
Additionally, we offer a selection of hardwood floor finishes that are environmentally safe and nearly odorless, so you won’t have to breathe in strong fumes or feel the need to go outside during the refinishing process.
Hardwood Floor Maintenance Tips
While we recommend you schedule hardwood floor maintenance regularly for the best quality and aesthetic, there are some steps you can take on your own to extend the life of your flooring and keep it looking beautiful from day to day.
Spills – try the best you can to prevent them. But if you’ve got kids in the family or a dog running around, we understand that may be impossible! Fortunately, spills aren’t the end of the world; just wipe them up as soon as possible, and keep the floor as dry as you can. Moisture is not your friend when it comes to hardwood floor maintenance!
Mats & Rugs – these are your friends! Mats and rugs are ideal for high-traffic areas where a lot of people walk because they will make your wood floors not only cleaner, but more durable. In rooms where you often entertain guests or you spend a lot of time in, like the den or family room, the wood can wear down pretty easily, leaving noticeable marks. If you don’t have rugs now and you’ve already noticed distinct marks, give us a call for hardwood floor repairs.
Things to Avoid – remember that the dog’s nails can scratch the floors, so keep them trimmed. High heels can similarly scratch up your floors, so consider leaving them by the door when you come home from work. It’s also a good idea to put protectors on furniture legs.
If you’re cleaning your hardwoods yourself, AVOID:
- Wet mops – this may be your first instinct when you notice a mess of muddy tracks in the hallway, but remember, moisture is not good when it comes to wood flooring.
- Ammonia, dust cleaners, or other floor cleaners on the floor—use professional wood floor cleaning supplies provided by your flooring company. Other products to avoid include wax on a urethane finished floor!
