What is dustless floor refinishing?
Whether you are installing a new hardwood floor or repairing and refinishing an existing one, sanding is part of the process. Unless the floors are already in fairly good condition, they must be sanded down to the bare wood beneath the stain. As you might imagine, this creates a lot of dust.
The typical sanding process can spread dust throughout the home—especially if it reaches the ventilation system, where it can re-circulate for months. Homeowners must often vacate until the job is finished and the mess cleaned up. Dust is also one of the most common causes of hardwood floor finish problems. If it’s not properly removed, dust can become trapped under the finish coat, leaving you with a gritty or uneven finish instead of the flawless smooth finish you expect and deserve.
Dustless floor refinishing—also called dustless floor sanding—eliminates these hassles, frustrations and finish problems by trapping the dust before it spreads.
At SVB Wood Floors, we use the state-of-the-art Bona dustless sanding system. The Bona Atomic Dust Containment System®, or DCS, traps airborne dust before it can spread throughout your home or business and transports the particles through a vacuum suction tube into an Atomic DCS® trailer outside.
We are proud to be the only hardwood floor refinisher in Kansas City using this world-class system.

Custom Hardwood Staining Services
After the dustless sanding process, we apply the stain to your floor. The staining stage of hardwood floor refinishing is exciting because that’s when you truly get to see your floor’s personality.
We can create any color you want with our custom color process. The color you choose will bring out the beauty and character of the wood grain. We test the stain on the floor first so you can see it, and once we receive your approval, we’ll move on with the staining process.
After the stain is dry, we finish the floor with three coats of environmentally safe, durable and fast-drying topcoat to protect your hardwood floor from normal wear and tear. You can choose from several different finishes ranging from low luster to high gloss. We screen, buff and vacuum between hardwood floor refinishing coats for the absolute best results possible.
With proper care, your new finish will last for years to come.

Is dustless floor refinishing the same as sandless floor refinishing?
You may hear these terms used interchangeably but there is a big difference. Dustless floor refinishing involves sanding, but the dust is captured by a containment system so it doesn’t spread throughout your home.
Sandless refinishing, on the other hand, does not involve sanding at all. It skips that step and moves right to re-staining and buffing. If there are any scuffs, scratches or gouges in the hardwood they’ll still be there—just covered with a new stain. Sanding and sometimes additional repairs are needed to address floor damage.
By the time most homeowners request floor refinishing services, their floors need sanding. While sandless floor refinishing is less expensive initially, it will not give you good results if there is any damage to your floors.
I’m not sure what stain or finish will look best on my floors. Can you help me?
We’d be glad to. Any new project begins with a free in-home design consultation. We can help you decide on a stain color, finish and more.
How do I know if I can refinish my hardwood floors or if they need to be replaced?
That’s an excellent question that we hear often. Many homeowners are surprised to find out that the floors they thought were too worn out could still be brought back to life! Ultimately it comes down to whether or not the floors can be sanded and the type and extent of any damage. During your free in-home consultation we’ll inspect your hardwood floors and share our recommendations for refinishing, repair or replacement.
