No-Mess Hardwood Floor Refinishing
No Sanding or Dust-Free Sanding Ever!
Don’t spend the next several years cleaning up the fine dust left by some hardwood floor re-finishers. We use either the non-sanding or no dust sanding methods while finishing or refinishing hard wood floors.
If your hardwood flooring is only lightly scared or warn, we may be able to avoid sanding all together. Learn more about our no-sanding floor refinishing process here: No sanding refinishing. For normal warn hardwood floors, sanding will most likely be required. Here’s how we do it with minimal dust and mess…
If Floor Sanding is Required:
Elegant Floors offers Dust-Free Refinishing for hardwood floors with the Atomic Dust Containment System (DCS) by Bonakemi, the most advanced and powerful dust containment system available. Traditional hardwood floor sanding is typically an extremely dusty process – a dust-storm in your home, lingering dust in your air-ducts, and a cleanup headache that feels like it will never end. The Atomic DCS provides a cleaner, healthier and faster sanding process reducing dust far beyond what the traditional sanding process generates.
The innovative concept of the Atomic system is to have a powerful vacuum engine connected to all of the sanding equipment, evacuating the airborne dust generated from the sanding process, and collecting it into our atomic trailer, which is parked outside your home. We also utilize powerful, portable dust containment systems.
The Bona Atomic DCS Process:
When Elegant Floor technicians arrive, they will first bring in all the sanding equipment and attach hoses to the equipment that lead out to our atomic trailer which houses the sealed dust container
Our first pass with the sanding equipment removes the old finish and evens out the hardwood surface.
We then make multiple passes in the room to completely sand your floor. We use specialized equipment for the edges.
Third, we spot check the floor and fill in holes, gouges, and cracks with Bona floor fillers.
Next we make a final sanding pass, and after the final floor preparation, we apply three coats of top-grade commercial finish.
Last, if desired, you pick the stain that best suits your home. We offer either oil-based or waterborne stains.

When to Use Elegant Floors Dust-Free Refinishing Process?
The Bona Atomic DCS process is recommended for the floors that have more severe damage than just a few scuffmarks. Consider refinishing your floors if they are: water or pet damaged, severely discolored, bowing or cupping, deeply scratched or gouged, worn down to the bare wood when remodeling, and joining old hardwood floors with new flooring.
