A visit from a hardwood floor refinishing service can be a pretty disruptive thing to happen to your home. While it is a necessary evil if you want to restore your floors to like-new condition, it can still be a bit of a headache. Some people even find it easier to clear out of the house while the work is going. It's a decision everyone has to make once they've arranged for a visit from a hardwood floor refinishing team, but if you don't know what to expect, you might not know what is best for you.
Here are a few of the reasons many people choose to vacate their homes while work is being done, so you can decide for yourself whether or not you should stay.
Dust
Sanding causes sawdust; there are no two ways about it. If anyone in your household has respiratory issues that would be aggravated by fine particles of dust in the air, you should probably start thinking about making arrangements to be away from the house while the work is in progress.
Fumes
The fumes from the application of the floor treatment can linger for quite a few days. These fumes are pretty strong, and can, for certain people, make a place intolerable until they have cleared. If you don't relish the idea of breathing in all those fumes, you might want to make plans to be elsewhere until they are worked out.
Musical chairs
If you decide to stay in the house throughout the work, you will be subjected to having to move from room to room with your furniture, as each room is worked on. Space will be tight and certain rooms will be off-limits until dried. In short, you won't have full use of your house while work is underway.
