Having a wood floor refinished is not something you can do on a whim. Anyone who has already used a wood floor refinishing service knows this already, and can tell you all about it. However, for those of you who may be having your wood floors refinished for the first time, you might be wondering what all the fuss is about.

When you chose a wood floor, the fact that it could be refinished might have been one of the factors that made you purchase this particular flooring in the first place. Refinishing not only makes your floors look great and erases years of wear and tear, it can extend the life of your floor by great lengths.
What You Need to Know

Choosing a wood floor refinishing service usually means a couple of things. In cases where you are only having a couple of rooms refinished, you’ll need to steer clear of those room during the process and for several days afterwards as well. The work itself can be finished, but you will still need to stay off the new finish so that it can dry completely.

Also, if only a couple of floors are being refinished, you will want to make plans for the dust that will ensue. Make sure to talk to your flooring professional about what needs to be covered up or moved, and if there are any other precautions that need to be taken. In addition to the dust from the refinishing project, you’ll also need to know about the fumes from the staining and refinishing chemicals.

If you’re having all the floors in your home refinished, it might be a good time to schedule a vacation! Since you have to stay off the floors until they’re dry, a few days away are necessary. You might as well make the most of them. 

Your flooring professional will advise you about any specifics, as well as exactly how long your wood floor refinishing service will take. That’s why it’s important to get the ball rolling as soon as you know you’re going to want you floors refinished.
