The Resurfacing Company, Inc
For a one-of-a-kind floor.
Stained flooring has become very popular in recent years due to its versatility and cost. Stains are being used for more than just retail big-box stores and showroom floors.
It provides a beautiful surface that is durable and easy to care for.
As with natural stone, you can't expect acid stained floors to be uniform or have an even tone because each floor reacts differently from slab to slab. These unique qualities are what make acid-stained concrete so desirable.
We have been fortunate to install it in many commercial and restaurant settings in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia, as well as in residential homes.

Caring for your stained concrete floor requires periodic maintenance and protection to prevent premature failure. Your custom floor can last a lifetime if properly maintained.
- Plastic glides or felt pads should be used on heavy furnishings or those which will move frequently.
- Door mats will help pick up the dirt that would otherwise be tracked in and provide added protection to your floors.
- A regular dusting can remove the fine dust and grit which can grind away floor finish. This will help prevent deterioration of your floor finish caused by normal foot traffic. The best results are obtained by using a micro-fiber dust mop. NEVER use a "Swiffer" wet-jet type of cleaning tool, it contains trace amounts of solvent material which will break down the protective wax coating. You should also not use any products containing ammonia or bleach.
- Using a damp mop with cool water and a neutral ph cleaner can extend the life of the floor finish and will enhance the gloss retention.
- The wax coat is the sacrificial coating which protects the sealer and bears the brunt of the scuff and scratches. It is recommended to use a 20% minimum solids wax and not Mop-n-Glo or similar wax. How often you need to re-wax depends on the wear and abuse put on the floor. It varies depending on usage and could be anywhere from every 3 months to every year.
- The concrete sealers and finishes are extremely durable, but the constant movement and hard bottoms on shoes, tables and chairs will eventually scratch or wear through if preventative measures are not taken. We recommend attaching special pads to the legs of all furniture and heavy stationery objects.
