Q. Can the TyKote System remove surface scratches on existing finish?
A. YES. AllStates Hardwood floor system uses a three multi step process to remove surface scratches by cleaning the floor with the Dirt Dragon cleaning machine and then using Tykote and Streetshoe 275 to add a new coat of water based finish.

Q. Do I need to recoat to make my floor look new?
A. In many occasions a floor will just need a deep cleaning to remove all heavy dirt and contamination making it unnecessary to add a new coat of finish. 

Q. Can I make my dull floors look like new using the dustless refinishing system?
A. YES. Just by deep cleaning the floors and adding a new coat of Streetshoe 275.

Q. How is this process different than sanding and screening?
A. First of all, there is absolutely NO DUST. Secondly, by using the method of screening, a floor may cause difficulties and cost more than refinishing with TyKote. The screen's texture may not properly abrade the entire surface. This scenario may cause adhesion problems ( peeling ) with the "physical bond" of the finish. Tykote, on the other hand, acts like a liquid super glue for finish and gets down into all textured areas that a screen would just pass over the top of.

Q. Can you recoat prefinished aluminum oxide floors?
A. YES. The TyKote System can be used successfully to recoat pre finished aluminum oxide floors.

Q. Can I wax my floor?
A. No. Do not use wax or silicone-based polishes or cleaners. Some wood flooring cleaners sold at your local store may actually make the floor more difficult to clean and may create problems when the floor requires refinishing.

Q. How can I care for my wood floor?
