Does this process generates a lot of dust?
It actually does, sanding hardwood floors creates a lot of dust so we recommend you to cover your furniture and all electrical appliances, especially your computer. We take our own precautions keeping the dust from entering the other rooms by masking off doorways and other procedures. Please take your own precautions as well, we do not hold responsibility for any damage due to dust.
If I´m remodeling or building my home, what should I do first refinishing the floors or paint the house?
The truth is that it’s all about the clean-up really. We have seen over the years that it is easier to clean the paint off the refinished floors than removing the dust from entire walls. If you decide to paint first, remove the accumulated dust from your newly painted walls with a damp towel. If you refinish first, clean any water-based paint remnants off the newly refinished floor with a wet towel.
Should I leave the house while the work is being done?
No, not unless you’re allergic to dust, fumes or polyurethane. Polyurethane is not toxic but it does produce nausea and discomfort. If you are pregnant, we do not recommend you expose yourself to polyurethane acrylics. Fumes may last up to 24 hours after the job is completed, maybe more in less ventilated areas.
Do you clean up when the job is finish?
We do our best, but we are not responsible for any clean up other than the floor.
Who takes care of moving my furniture ?
We recommend you to plan moving your furniture before our arrival. If some furniture remains, we can help you, but we cannot be held responsible if damage occurs to the furniture or the floor.
When is the best time to renew a Finish?
Finishes are best renewed when they begin to show signs of wear in traffic channels but definitively don’t wait until the bare wood is exposed.
