Our Story

Our company began in the 1970s as a traditional wood floor finishing company, but when a renowned sculptor came to us with a “sandless” request, we set out on a mission to change our ways and create a sandless floor refinishing system.

In 2001, sculptor John Seward Johnson (of Johnson & Johnson) opened up a 5-star restaurant and wanted to refinish its floors. His designer said he’d need to close the restaurant for three weeks in order to get the sanding and refinishing done. Johnson didn’t want to close, so our company was called in to help. Since we had been receiving requests for a sandless floor refinishing method for decades, we decided to figure out how to do it.

After lots of experimenting and some trial and error, we finally reached a five-phase system that let us refinish floors without having to sand them. Today, our system is essentially the same: the first three phases of the process prepare the floor to receive a fresh coat of urethane, the next phase is a bonding coat, and the fifth phase is the urethane application.

Why Us

Low Risk, High Reward!

  • Excellent Services - At SandFree, we offer services like our “sandless” floor refinishing process and our ColorMagiQ finish colors for nearly every type of flooring.
  • Excellent Profits - With our lucrative pricing and support programs, you’ll experience the profits that we’ve been enjoying for over 40 years.
  • Scalable Business Model - Our business model is extremely scalable, so no matter what your goals, our experts can give you the help you need to reach them.
  • SandFree is Robust - You can make SandFree be what you want it to be – it can grow and expand according to your desires/abilities.  We recommend that you have a minimum charge for any small job, but your average residential job will be approximately $1200 and commercial projects can be 6 figures.  You might start out with residential work, and as your confidence grows, you can expand into the commercial market.  SandFree is extendable.
  • Marketing and Sales - Your success with SandFree will be exactly determined by our ability to market the service.  If people know about SandFree you will get orders.  We are looking for people who are confident marketers who want to grow their businesses
  • A Massive Territory - Each 500,000-person territory represents approximately 20 million feet of residential floors that will be refinished each year (our presentation will explain the math). This means that you have a ton of opportunities to take advantage of (and that doesn’t include commercial space that may need refinishing.)
  • Expanding Market - You will have the benefit of an expanding market for 2 reasons.  SandFree has enabled people to refinish the floors in their home while they are living there.  In addition less carpet is being sold and more wood is being used in homes and commercial spaces.
  • Financing - We can help you to explore financing options.  We have financing partners who are familiar with the SandFree metrics and are very interested in helping new franchisees get started.
  • High Gross Margin - Due to the value that the customer gets, SandFree is sold with a high gross margin. Even at 1/2 the cost of sanding, it remains a very profitable business.  The value to the commercial customer is even higher than the residential customer.  By meeting the needs of both types of customers, you will enjoy the rewards.
  • And much more!
