Blair & Son Floor Co. has been a provider of hardwood floor installation and hardwood floor refinishing in the Tacoma and Puyallup area for 60 years. During that time, we have earned a reputation as the most reliable Tacoma hardwood floor refinishing service around.
Once your hardwood floor has been installed, repaired, or refinished, we fortify and beautify it with a high-quality, long-lasting finish. While floor finishes come in a variety of styles and forms, Blair & Son Floor Co. provides customers with only select hardwood refinishing types: oil-based (or Swedish) and water-based.
Swedish finish has continually grown in popularity since it was first developed in Scandinavia during the 1950s. Following its spread throughout Europe and other areas, Swedish finish quickly became the standard form of hardwood floor coating, and with good reason: It is by far the most resilient finish available, and it is guaranteed to outlast other finishes. Swedish finish is also popular due to the fact that it is fairly low-maintenance to care for. Waxing is unnecessary with this refinishing type, so occasional mopping is all that’s required.
Water-based finishes aren’t quite as durable, but they do offer advantages. Water-based finishes are useful in preserving the color of wood due to their transparency upon drying, and they contain far fewer solvents than oil-based varieties. Water-based finishes are also easy to care for, as they clean up easily with soap and water.
Blair & Son Floor Co. provides Tacoma floor refinishing services with the option to choose between these floor refinishing styles based on the lay of their floor and which finish best suits their aesthetic tastes, budget, and lifestyle.
