Pros and Cons of Hardwood Sanding & Finishing. First of all, it is the most intensive method that will help you get rid of most of the dents, scratches and other damages by removing some portion of the top layer of your wood floors. Also hardwood Sanding opens up the wood so it can be stained in a different colour – the selection of stains is really wide. The main disadvantage of hardwood refinishing is that every time it removes about 0.5 – 1.5 mm of the floor top layer. It means that it can be done only a certain number of times which is indicated by the hardwood specifications.
Sandless Hardwood Refinishing works very well for wood flooring that is in a quite good shape, but needs a little touch of refreshment. Sandless refinishing involves scuffing the floor lightly with a sanding machine (floor buffing) and applying an etching chemical to the surface. After that minor damages of the hardwood floor are repaired prior to applying a new top coat of finish. Refinishing without sanding also know as hardwood buffing or hardwood polishing,
Pros and cons of Sandless refinishing. This refinishing technology is considered to be medium intensive. It is much faster and less expensive than traditional wood refinishing with sanding. It does not take off that much of the top layer of hardwood, but no method is 100% dustless, and you’ll still find a small amount of dust settling in your home. Refinishing hardwood floors without sanding will not remove deep scratches and dents and does not provide an option for staining the floor.
This is a safe and environmentally responsible way of removing all surface accumulations from an old wood floor without any aggressive sanding or loss of any wood layer.
Pros and Cons. With Hardwood recoating you can get the same great results as from traditional refinishing or buffing without any loss of wood itself. You also have the same finishing options as you have for sanded floors including matte, satin, gloss and other finishes. And it is all with absolutely no dust. There is one restriction only – Hardwood Recoating and Cleaning works well for wood floors in a fairly good shape (with no to a minimum number of spots with physical damages). It will eliminate dirt, dust, oil and other contaminants that can weaken wood flooring and eventually lead to costly repairs or deep sanding and refinishing in the future. Many hardwood floor owners prefer to use hardwood recoating (wood floor cleaning) services every few years to extend the life of their floor protective coat and avoid a potential refinishing job. Most hardwood floors can be refinished a few times, but there is always a limit. Recoating hardwood floors is an excellent technique of preventative maintenance and can save you money over the lifetime of your floors.
Recoating of hardwood floors does not remove deep scratches and dents and does not allow staining or changing the colour of the floors.

Sanding is capable of fixing relatively deep scratches in your floors as it completely removes the damaged surface. Floor sanding is a process of sanding down to bare wood to remove the old finish, staining the entire surface with the general color of the wood or other color and putting layers of clear coat for protection.
Screening or buffing can handle some minor damages on the very surface of your floors (layer of polyurethane) and dramatically revitalizes its look. Floor screening is a process of taking off the clear coat layer with a buffer (without removing any wood) and applying fresh layers of coat. Screening is definitely less expensive than sanding and requires much less time to complete.
