"Little City with a Big Heart", that’s Hilltop, Minnesota’s motto to live by. Only minutes away from the Twin Cities area, Hilltop manages to be part of a busy metropolitan area while still maintaining the feeling of a small town. Holding true to their name and maintaining that community atmosphere, volunteers saw a need for a playground and took it upon themselves to build one. The city aids their residents by offering free weekly recycling pick-ups. Even new neighbors are shown community hospitality with a welcome summer picnic where they can meet all their neighbors. Community leaders and residents alike all work together to show that Hilltop, Minnesota is rightly named "Little City with a Big Heart".
In close-knit communities people are usually more than willing to lend their neighbors a helping hand when they see a need. However, if you have noticed your hardwood flooring has gone beyond needing just minor repairs, it might be time to call in a professional. If you are beginning to see warping, sagging or split boards occurring, or you are noticing extensive water damage or wide-spread deep scratches in the wood, do not assume the problem will take care of itself. Not every flooring issue requires a full replacement, sometimes you may only need to have your floors refinished. Whatever the case, the way to know which option is the best for your home is to consult the opinion of a professional.
The experts at Dave’s Floor Sanding can work with you to determine exactly what option is best for your home and for your wallet as well. Not only do our customer service representatives have decades of actual field experience and can answer all your questions, but our floor refinishing specialists have been refinishing and installing hardwood flooring in thousands of homes in the Hilltop and surrounding areas for over 35 years.
If you just don’t know what would be best, give us a call. We’ll help direct you for the best outcome for the needs of your family, your home and your finances.

Now is also the perfect time to take a good look at your hardwood flooring and see if it is in need of some improvements. The hustle and bustle of daily activity, the soccer equipment that gets tossed on the floor after practice and the water stains from spills and pets all take their toll after a time. You may not have even noticed until now that your hardwood flooring isn’t looking as beautiful as it once did. Once your flooring begins to look worn and abused, your home begins to look a little run down and in need of some help. But don’t think you need to completely replace your hardwood flooring. Sometimes all it needs is a little board replacement here and there and a light refinishing.
Our customer service representatives here at Dave’s Floor Sanding have decades of actual field experience and would enjoy the opportunity to discuss your hardwood flooring concerns. They will take the time necessary to answer all of your questions so you feel comfortable and confident with the decisions you make.

There are many issues that occur by living so close to water and one of them is humidity. Humidity can be an enemy to your hair, your home, but it is especially damaging to your hardwood flooring.
To keep your hardwood flooring strong and durable, the humidity levels in your home must be managed, because as the humidity rises, wood absorbs the moisture from the air. When the humidity falls, the wood releases the moisture back into the air. This is a natural process for hardwood flooring but excessive levels in either direction can create problems.
If you have begun to see cracks and separation between the boards, cupping (when the edges of the boards are higher on the sides), crowning (opposite of cupping) or buckling (when the wood flooring pulls away from the subfloor) it may be time to seek professional help. There can also be moisture problems beneath the flooring that is invisible to the eye that can be just as devastating for your hardwood floors.
While some people do take on the task of fixing and refinishing their floors themselves, depending on their condition, you might be doing more harm than good. The direction you may think is the best course of action may not necessarily be the least expensive or least invasive alternative.
Our floor refinishers at Dave’s Floor Sanding have not only the knowledge but the experience that is necessary to help correct any problems you are having with your hardwood flooring. They will even sit down with you to discuss what needs to be done today and what can be done in the future to keep your hardwood flooring looking beautiful no matter what body of water you are living next to.
Blaine, Minnesota, part of the Minneapolis/St. Paul metropolitan area, is home to a 600-acre National Sports Center, which is the world’s largest amateur sports and meeting facility. This center features 60 grass soccer fields, an 18-hole golf course and the Schwan Super Rink containing four Olympic and four regulation ice rinks, as well as 100,000 square feet of indoor training and meeting space. But that’s not all. How could you have a National Sports Center without a cycling velodrome. In case you are not sure, a velodrome features a steeply banked oval track consisting of two 180-degree circular bends connected by two straights. A true cyclist’s dream!
With sports and sporting equipment being a major part of community life in Blaine, it can take its toll on your home’s wood flooring. With hardwood floors increasing the value of your home, it is important to regularly check yours to make sure it is in good repair.

Before beginning any such project it is always important to have a professional flooring contractor take a look to make sure measures are taken to prevent permanent damage to the wood and to your investment.
