What Our Clients Have to Say

Our most important assets

I am really impressed! The guys were professional and answered my questions. The floors (20 years old) look brand new! Some dust to clean up but not bad.
This is the best renovation investment I have made to this place considering cost to benefit!! The owner, Genia Smith is honest about expectations and I like that in a person. She delivered just what I asked for and paid for. All good!

Barbara P.

From estimate to finished job, everyone was congenial, professional and efficient. The job was completed quickly with minimum inconvenience and the price was fair.We could not be happier with the finished product.

Pat & Joan F.

The team at Accent brought our 65 year old oak floor back to life! They reconditioned and then waxed our now beautiful floor. We had just the one room which needed urgent attention before moving in, and Accent was able to work us into their schedule on short notice which I greatly appreciate. I highly recommend Accent Hardwood Flooring!

Dustless Wood Floor Refinishing

Sanding and finishing is typically a messy process that leaves dust on every surface in your home. Now, with the Clarke American Dust Control Vacuums, dust during resurfacing is virtually eliminated. Our dust containment system is just another way we are continuing to service our customers with value added services at no extra cost.

The dust containment system is connected to our sanding equipment with hoses and uses powerful vacuum motors to suck up the dust created through the sanding process. The Clarke American Systems are the most advanced and powerful dust containment systems available, reducing dust far beyond what the traditional sanding process generates.

Utilizing powerful vacuum systems attached to all sanding equipment results in:

  • Increased customer satisfaction –  eliminates 95% of the  dust throughout the home or business.
  • Higher quality results – by eliminating airborne dust that would otherwise settle back down into the finish.
  • Healthier working conditions and indoor air quality – wood dust is a known carcinogen.

Why Choose Wood?

Benefits of Wood Floors – No other flooring offers the warmth, beauty, and value of wood. Wood flooring enhances the decor of any room, and provides timeless beauty that will increase in value throughout the years. In fact, in a national survey of real estate agents, 90 percent said that houses with wood flooring sell faster and for higher prices than houses without wood floors. That’s money in your pocket!

Ease of Maintenance – Maintenance of today’s wood floors is easy! New technology in stains and finishes call for regular cleaning that takes little more than sweeping and/or vacuuming, with occasional use of a professional wood floor cleaning product. You will want to use a cleaning product recommended by Accent Hardwood Flooring, and sold in our showroom. This will ensure that you use the proper cleaner for your type of flooring and finish.

Ecological – Wood floors are ecologically friendly. Since it is a natural resource, wood is both renewable and recyclable. Many of yesteryear’s old wood ships, warehouses, barns, and other structures often find a second life in wood flooring. And, because wood does not collect dust and other allergens, many leading health associations agree that wood floors are the perfect choice for a healthy home.

Affordable – Today’s wood floors are affordable. Over time, wood floors maintain their value. When other flooring options are looking tired and worn out, wood floors will still look beautiful and timeless.

Variety – Wood floors have come a long way in the past few years. Today, there are more styles, colors and species of wood flooring available than ever before. Whether you’re looking for traditional Oak, rustic Pine, exotic Wenge or trendy Bamboo, you?re sure to find a color and style to fit your d?cor.

Healthy – According to an EPA study, wood floors do not harbor allergens, microorganisms or harmful pesticides that can be tracked in from outdoors. In addition, dust, mold and animal dander contamination is minimal in homes with wood floors. Based on these EPA findings, wood floors promote a healthier living, and work, environment. Wood flooring is also easier on your joints (and your dishes!) than other hard surface flooring options, such as ceramic tile.
