Answering Basic Concerns Regarding Refinishing Hardwood Floors

Floor care will often be more intensive that homeowners might anticipate. This is especially true for hardwood flooring. In order to be prepared for the various tasks that will need to be done for your hardwood flooring, there are some questions that you will likely need to have answered.

Why Would You Want Your Hardwood Floor Sanded?

Homeowners may often be surprised to learn that they might benefit from having their hardwood floors sanded. Often, this work will need to be done to remove stains or deep scratches that may have formed in the wood. After the sanding is completed, add fresh coating of wood finish. By sanding away the top layer of the flooring, you can remove these blemishes without needing to pay to replace sections of your flooring.

Will Sanding Produce Large Dust Accumulations?

It can be easy to be leery of sanding your floors as this could lead to large amounts of dust being produced. This dust can spread throughout the house, and it can be extremely difficult to clean. Fortunately, there are many floor services that offer hardwood dustless sanding. When you use these services, the contractor will use a sander that is designed to remove as much dust as possible. This is done by a powerful vacuum being attached to the end of the sander, which will remove the dust as it is being produced. Some of the dust that is produced will escape the vacuum, but these services will thoroughly clean the house to ensure that the dust is removed.

How Long Will The Refinishing Process Take To Finish?

The amount of time and disruption that can be caused by refinishing a floor can vary. Fortunately, the sanding that will need to be done can likely be completed in a single day or afternoon. However, you should be aware that you will not be able to use the floor until the finishing fully dries. Due to the fact that wood floor finishing can be rather thick, it may take a day or two before it fully dries.

If the hardwood floors in your home have started to become severely stained or scuffed, refinishing may be the best option for restoring the appearance of the floor in an economical manner. Once you are familiar with the benefits that refinishing can provide, the availability of dustless floor sanding and the time range that these projects may require, deciding to undergo this work for your home will likely be a simpler decision.
