dustless refinishing


Dust is always the top concern of our homeowners. Dust does not have to make the refinishing process miserable. The right vacuum and tools can make the project nearly dust free. Darkstar Hardwood has a great dust containment system that significantly reduces dust and makes the refinishing process more pleasant. The vacuum system is emptied outside to help reduce dust exposure in the home. Vacuums and dust containment systems have improved greatly in the last few years. Our dustless sanding process is a great improvement over the previous system and is a must for any refinish in Littleton.


Most industries have seen improvements in the last 20 years but the advancements in flooring finish may be the biggest. Water-based flooring finish has been introduced in the last 20 years eliminating many of the downsides associated with flooring finish but with great durability. Water based flooring finishes and UV finishes do not have the smell or V.O.C.’s found in many finishes. V.O.C.’s can be harmful to your health and can off-gas for as long as 60 days. Water-based finish and U.V. finishes off gas for just 2-36 hours and does not pose the health risk that oil based finishes do. Water based finish is durable enough to withstand 5-8 years of use before a maintenance coat or total refinish is needed but does still need routine maintenance and care. 


Hardwood floors can take a lot of abuse before they need to be refinished. Over the years of use the floor finish can start to dull and wear out. Re-sanding the floors takes away all the years of abuse and allows them to look new and beautiful again. Refinishing hardwood takes just a day or two but truly transforms your flooring.
