how we work

It will typically take 4 1/2 days for us to complete a 1200 square foot project.  During that time we will tent off our work area to minimize the spread of dust in your home. Prior to applying the sealers we will fully vacuum out the work site to insure that the finish coat is dust free.  Truthfully, there is no such thing as a “dustless” wood floor refinishing process, but we make every effort to keep the dust to a minimum. 

Once we start to work on your floors you'll find that we make quite a bit of noise - we wish it weren't so, but it's the nature of the business, so be prepared for the disruption. After all the flooring has been sanded we will apply the finish, which can take a few days to apply and a few more before you can move your furniture back. Depending on the type of finish you choose you may experience a slight odor similar to that of paint products or paint remover. The smell will dissipate over time.

If you have questions along the way please feel free to ask. We are here to serve you and want you to have a good understanding of what is taking place as we work in your home.
