Are you ready to restore the beauty of your hardwood floors? We are! Your floor may not look as stunning as it once did due to general wear and tear, but that doesn’t mean you need to start from scratch. If you have decided to refinish the floors in your Fort Worth home, make sure you are prepared:
- Check the humidity: It can get pretty humid in Texas! Unfortunately, wood is porous and can easily absorb moisture. This means the size of the wood can expand and create damage. It will also take the new finish much longer to dry.
- Remove furniture: There is no way to work around the furniture in a room that is getting its floors redone. Make sure you not only remove the furniture, but cover it as well. Dust is unavoidable and will likely pop up in some unexpected spots after all is said and done. Be sure to protect anything you don’t want to catch a layer of sawdust.
- Consider staying elsewhere: Your house will not have accessible furniture, and there will be odors from the stain and polyurethane that can last a few days after the refinishing is complete. Even though you will be permitted to use your floors shortly after sealing (about 24 hours or so), it’s important to note that these treatments often take a week to cure completely.
If you are only refinishing one room in your home, it may be realistic to stay. Be sure to talk with our experts about what the best option is for you and your family. For the hardwood floor refinishing you’ve been dreaming of, make sure you call Texas Hardwood Flooring today.
