Refinish or Buff?

Buffing and some call it Screening, are the same things. They are synonyms for each other and both means that you "scuff up" or abrade the floor, and then you apply a coat of polyurethane for protection and sheen. Screening is often called buffing, since the screening is done with a buffer. Screening both smooths the floors a bit, and abrasive action allows the polyurethane to adhere to the surface better. The screen and re-coat process can restore the glow of the floors and give them a refreshed look. Some customers call this "light sanding" (It is buffing or screening, since you are not sanding the wood) Buff and coat is another term used for it. Buffing will not address deep scratches or changes in color. Floor with stain having scratches buffing will not help, it is simply adding on a coat of clear protection on the floors. Generally Buffing can be done in one day and needs 24 hrs to dry.
