What is hardwood floor refinishing?
Wood like anything else ages. This is the reason why you may notice older homes have floors that look dull or may have lost their shine. The quick fix to improving the aesthetic of these wooden floors is to refinish them.
Refinishing involves sanding down the top layer of exposed hardwood floors, applying a fresh layer of stain and a top layer of lacquer. This process yields a shiny and new looking floor that leaves both homeowners in amazement.
Sandless or dustless hardwood floor refinishing is the process of using a dust capturing machine to sand the floors. This greatly reduces the amount of debris and wood shavings released into the air.
Although it’s not completely dust free, it does reduce the risk of exacerbating pre existing respiratory problems such as asthma.
How long does hardwood floor refinishing take?
In general, it takes between three and five days to completely refinish wood floors. However, it also depends on the type of coating you are going to use.
For example, an oil based polyurethane coating will take longer to apply and will last longer than a water based polyurethane.
It also will depend on the number of coatings, the shade of coating, and the humidity of the day. Typically, an oil based polyurethane will need 24 hours for each coat to dry. So if you need three coats it could take up to three day, and so on.
In short, hardwood floor refinishing and staining is not a short process and you should wait another 24 hours before walking on the newly refinished flooring.
Be sure to plan ahead of time and talk with our contractor for a good completion time estimate.
