1. Save the floor for last.
Planning other renovation projects? Whether you plan to paint, replace any drywall or baseboards, update the bathroom, etc., conserve the flooring for last. It'll save wear and tear on your new floor.
2. Dry weather is greatest.
Attempt to avoid refinishing floors during wet weather or during high humidity. (Although, let's face it, this is sometimes hard to plan for in Indiana!) Wood is a porous material, and when the old end is stripped off, the timber surface will absorb moisture. If the weather is wet or particularly humid, the end could take longer to dry or might not be as even.
3. Protect from dust.
We are going to take steps to control dust, however some could seep from this room we're working in. Our innovative dust containment system, which utilizes the most cutting-edge equipment, captures 95 -- 98 percent of all airborne dust. Nevertheless, you may choose to pay other nearby furniture. For wall hangings or pictures within the room, remove or cover them.
4. Make arrangements for pets.
Unless you are able to keep your pets outdoors, contained in another area, or crated during the day we are going to be working, we suggest all pets be stored away from the house. Our finishes are indoor air quality certified, so fumes aren't a health issue; nonetheless, your pet's claws, hair, and footprints can be very damaging (and pricey ) to your new flooring.
