Milton Glaser, a graphic designer from New York, once said 

There are three responses to a piece of design: yes, no, and wow! Wow is the one to aim for.” His words of wisdom certainly apply to wood floor restoration.  For wood floor sanding and restorations, this kind of response is always the dream! There are few things more satisfying than restoring a wood floor that truly delights clients, making them stop in their tracks and say “wow”.
