How do I maintain my hardwood flooring?
The goal is to prevent sanding & refinishing by periodically re-coating when necessary. Therefore, using only approved flooring cleaners in addition to regular dust & steam mopping is recommended. Polyurethane Maintenance Guide
How long will refinishing my floor take?
It depends on several factors; size of the job, type of finish (water vs. oil), stain involved, humidity, etc. Most typical refinishing jobs will take a minimum of 3 to 5 full days, along with accommodations for dry times. On the other hand, a pre-finished floor can be installed and completed in as little as one day.
Is oil based polyurethane better than water based?
No. However, all polyurethanes (oil or water) are brand specific. We only use time tested industry leading commercial grade water base & oil base finishes. The water based polyurethanes we offer are actually significantly more durable than oil base. Yet, each brand of polyurethane finish we offer have their own pros and cons.
