What is the difference between sanding the floor and refinishing the floor?

0

When a floor is sanded a minimum of three grits of sandpaper are used. All of the seal, paint, and finish are removed. Typically, a floor should be sanded every ten years. At this point, all lines and graphics will be repainted. Likewise, whenever a floor is repaired, it should be re-sanded to maintain uniformity. When a floor is refinished, it is simply screened and tacked, then refinished with one or two coats. Paint may be added at this time, but no paint will be removed. This should typically happen at least once a year.
