Because they are not solid wood, they can be cleaned and buffed, and depending on the wear layer thickness, they may or may not be sandable. If they can’t be sanded then they can be screened and recoated.

Hardwood Floor Refinishing Process
What does Keystone Hardwood Floor Care sanding and refinishing professional services include?
Step 1: Inspection and thorough vacuuming
After all furniture has been removed from the room by the homeowner. All existing shoe molding, quarter rounds, and ventilation registers should be removed. To ensure professional-looking work, this step is essential. Sanding, staining, and refinishing work needs to extend all the way to the edge of the boards. Risking the possibility of color or stain buildup where the floor meets the shoe molding or the registers, or risking uneven application by going around them, or skipping parts of the sanding to avoid rubbing up again existing molding—these are short cuts we won’t take.
Step 2: Sanding
A drum sander is used to remove the original finish and color from the floor, which is an acquired skill. Because drum sanders remove wood with every pass, they must keep it under control using a combination of strength and technique. A sander can quickly destroy a floor if it is used improperly. In order to achieve a smooth surface, the grit of the paper is gradually decreased as we run our sanders in sequential steps. A very fine-grit sand paper is used for the final sanding to ensure a surface that is evenly smooth and capable of receiving the coating and finishing.
Step 3: Staining
A visual inspection is conducted after all sanding is completed to look for any remaining marks from sanding. Once the marks have been removed, the floors are ready to be stained. Depending on the pigment in the stain, we might water pop the floor to get a deeper shade of the same color.
Step 3: Finish application
We apply a few coats of premium water-based polyurethane after the stain has dried–about two to three hours after the stain is applied.
Step 5: Buffing
When the finish is thoroughly dry, we buff the floors to eliminate any surface imperfections. We then apply the final coat of finish to produce a highly polished surface.
Step 6: Drying
After four hours, the completed finish is thoroughly dried and can handle light traffic, allowing the furniture to be moved back into position. On all furniture components that touch the floor, we always recommend that you place protective furniture pads.
