When to Call a Professional Refinisher

Call a professional before attempting repairs if:

  • Your furniture finish is cracking, forming a pattern resembling alligator skin or peeling.
  • There are deep gashes, cuts, dents or burns in the finish film.
  • Nail polish or polish remover has been spilled on the hardwood.
  • Oil-based paint has dried on the surface.
  • The hardwood surface is marred by magic markers.
  • You are unsure as to what kind of finish film (shellac, varnish, lacquer, etc.) is on your hardwood product.
  • There are squeaks in your hardwood floors, whether carpeted or not.
