we are refinishing experts

We guarantee that when we are done refinishing your hardwood floors there will never be any dust left behind for you to clean up.

Sanding Your Wood Floor

Sanding is the first step in refinishing your wood floor. This will remove the existing finish. We sand the floor multiple times to achieve a perfectly smooth finish.  All sanding dust is contained by using Bona’s innovative Atomic Dust Containment Systems. These are the most advanced and powerful dust containment systems available, generating 99.8% less dust in the air than the traditional sanding process. Our Dust Free sanding system prevents the infiltration of dust into draperies, furniture, cabinets, air ducts and air conditioning systems during the sanding process.

We then bring in the buffer or orbital sander to give the floor a final polish.

Never Any Dust Left Behind

At Dubois Wood Floors we know that no one likes to live in renovation mode. Having your hardwood floors refinished and looking wonderful only to have the rest of your house covered in dust that will take you months to find and clean up is frustrating to say the least. That is why we’ve invested in a dust free sanding system.

Many companies will charge extra for this service, we include it at no additional cost. We don’t believe in charging our customers extra for good service. If dust free sanding is available, it’s our responsibility to include it and our customers right to expect it on every job.


Staining is an excellent way to change the look of hardwood flooring without losing the natural beauty and character of the wood floors.

About Staining

When considering hardwood refinishing, you may decide to restore them back to their natural state. In that case no stain would be needed since the sanding and finish coats will make your floors as good as new. In other cases staining is essential in order to drastically change the aesthetic feel in your home.

Bona Custom Stains

Styles change but fortunately wood flooring is always in style. If change is what your after than nothing adds more class, tradition or originality to your home than a custom stain to your hardwood floors. A custom stain allows you the flexibility of choosing a multitude of colours, grays and white washes.

Bona’s new DriFast Stain Collections offer the latest choices for hardwood floor inspiration in your home. Four beautiful collections with 26 colors capture the invigorating spirit of great design. Find just the right shade or custom mix to provide a unique offering to your customers.


Staining Process

Unfortunately, unlike painting you cannot simply apply stain over the existing hardwood. Similar to the process of refinishing any hardwood floor, staining first calls for the removal of the existing finish on your floor. All traces of your old hardwood floor finish must be sanded off until you get down to the original wood grain. Once complete, the floors are ready to accept stain and the staining process can begin.

If you think you would be interested in getting a custom stain done on your floors give us a call and we would be more than happy to come by and help you pick out a stain that’s right for you.
