Screen and Coat

Wondering what a screen and coat process is? This is different than a clean and wax process.

The screen and coat process (also referred to as a buff and coat) is a procedure for hardwood floors that is a cost effective method of fixing or revitalizing worn or dull floors.  Instead of paying for a complete refinishing, flooring can be brought back to life, but don't expect deep scratches and dings to be removed. The same holds true for removing paint that may have been splattered over the years.  Frequent screen and coat applications can protect and postpone the need for a complete refinishing at a later date. We would recommend waiting until the morning after the process is completed before walking on the floors.

The clean and wax process is a deep cleaning and a fresh coat of wax applied to the floors. The floors are first swept and vacuumed to remove dirt.  Then the cleaner is applied. We use Dura Seal wax and cleaner which is a blend of cleaning agents and wax designed to remove scuff marks and built up dirt while adding a soft sheen to waxed hardwood floors. It is safe to walk on the floors the same day the process is completed.
