Wood Floor Refinishing

Wood Floor Refurbishing - Birmingham AL

Commercial Wood Floors Rejuvenated

Wood flooring is beautiful. When it is in great condition it creates a stunning backdrop to your environment, but when the finish becomes obscured by contaminants such as dust, soils, air pollution, oils, and mop residue, wood flooring can have the complete opposite effect. At Southern Surface Care, we understand that your hardwood flooring is a significant investment and deserves the very best workmanship and care. You can trust our knowledgeable team to dramatically improve the appearance of your hardwood floors. Commercial and hospitality property owners and managers count on us to rejuvenate the floors in their offices, hotels, health care facilities, restaurants, and stores. We provide services throughout much of Birmingham AL. (See our Service Areas page.)

commercial WOOD FLOOR refurbishing

Wood floors do not always require sanding and refinishing, which is not only messy and smelly, but also disrupts your normal routine, causing inconvenience to guests, clients, patrons, and staff. Our simple deep cleaning process rejuvenates an existing polyurethane finish. For floors without a sealed polyurethane finish, we can wax and buff. Either way, we’ll leave your wood floors and baseboards in your entries, hallways, and common areas fresh, clean, and beautiful, achieving impressive results at a fraction of the cost and hassle of a full refinishing.

Popular Wood Floor Questions

Although many people use the terms refinishing and refurbishing interchangeably, the truth is there is a distinct difference. 

Refinishing, a service we do not provide at this time, removes the existing finish via chemical stripping and sanding, and then a completely new finish is applied.

Refurbishing is an inexpensive alternative to refinishing when wood floors are not badly damaged and the existing finish is still largely intact. Wood floor refurbishing does not require removal of the existing finish. 

Many floors do not require refinishing for a beautifully renewed appearance. Our wood floor refurbishing services rejuvenate the appearance of wood floors at a fraction of the cost of a full refinishing.
