Part of having your hardwood floors refinished is knowing how things will change during the process. You can reduce your stress by preparing ahead of time. Our experts can take care of most things, but there are a few considerations that you should remember. Here, we have listed some of the things we will do to protect your home (and how you can help!):
- If you live in a family home, find a place for the children and pets. You’ll want to keep both out of the room being worked on to keep them from exposure to chemicals or ruining the finish. This room will be off-limits!
- Move out all the furniture. It goes without saying that we can’t begin refinishing your floors if there are furniture pieces in the way! You will need to keep everything out of the room while the finish is applied up until it finishes drying. This prevents damages to your newly refinished floor as well as your furniture. It is a good idea to make space to put your furnishings ahead of time so that your service can begin immediately.
- Cover your lamps and fans. Dust from sanding can cover everything-- and we mean everything. It is best to make things simple and keep things that can’t be removed from the room covered. Covering the fixtures with plastic and taping it down works just fine to protect them.
- Remove shoe molding. This is a delicate procedure unless you know just how to get the job done. We wedge a pry bar between the molding and wall. Then we put a small block of wood against the bar so that the moulding won’t be damaged. Baseboards can stay where they are. Unless you have done this before, it is best to let the technicians do this step for you.
