Generations of Knowledge

SURFS Flooring is owned by Cliff Motteler, a second generation floor sander. Working in Peoria, Illinois as a wood floor sander Cliff learned a few key concepts:


Keeping a schedule and honoring your words is the keystone of a business.


Your character and attitude towards your clients is essential. No room for ego or arguing. 


We operate our projects for consistency.  To improve our service, we invest in regular training and education.
