Refinishing your hardwood floor is the answer to all these problems. There are plenty of flooring contractors who can help you with all your flooring needs. But before refinishing your hardwood floor, it’s important to understand as much as you can about the process. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions that can help:
How much time does hardwood floor refinishing take?
It depends on the kind of polyurethane you choose- oil based or water based. If it’s the oil based one, then more time will be needed, say 3-4 days plus drying time. Water based polyurethane will be quicker, around 2 days.
What will happen to my hardwood floors covered with vinyl, tile, laminate and carpet?
Flooring contractors remove and haul away whatever flooring material is covering your hardwood floor and repair the exposed hardwood for restoration.
What’s the solution for lots of dust while sanding the floors?
There are two solutions for this messy process. According to the first standard process, the dust gets accumulated in a vacuum bag and then the flooring expert vacuums between each coat and adds plastic to every area left undone as well.
In the second option, dust is extracted with a vacuum suction tube. No option is 100% dust free, but this still takes care of 90-95% of the dust.
Is it possible to change the color of the hardwood?
