The average time for most refinishing is 2 to 7 days.

Refinishing is a three-step process if natural finish is chosen, four steps if stain is applied. If stain is chosen, extra time will be needed for the drying process. Darker stains typically take longer to dry. The following represent the steps taken.

1. Sanding
2. Apply stain if chosen
3. 2 coats polyurethane -1st coat on 1st day and 2nd coat on 2nd day
4. Buffing and final 3rd coat of polyurethane - 3rd day


We use the best dust containment equipment available, however, even the best equipment will not be 100% dust free. Our equipment does contain 98% of the airborne dust created while sanding your floors. With our equipment the sanding process will leave an amount of dust equal to 3 - 4 weeks of normal household dust.

If the area to be refinished constitutes a major portion of your living area it would be recommended to vacate your home during the refinishing process.

It is best that the home is not occupied during the refinishing process, due to the following reasons:


1. Limited access to living areas.

2. Technicians will be working extensive hours to finish your project as soon as possible.

3. Polyurethane emits a strong odor that will last a few days.


Clear areas of all furniture. Draw blinds and remove window treatments. This will protect fabrics and provide a well-lit workspace. Depending on the rooms in your project, some of the following may or may not apply. Refrigerators and ranges need to be removed before we arrive. Remove contents from countertops. Remove toilets.

If you are unable to meet our crew in the morning to let us in, please coordinate with the office to provide a key so we can get started right away.

For your pet's safety and to ensure the project's best completion, pets should be contained in a secure area away from the project.

Wait 8 to 10 hours before walking with stocking feet on the floor after the final polyurethane coat, 24 hours with shoes. After 48 hours pets and furniture can be put back on the floor. Use felt leg protectors on the furniture.

Do not cover newly finished floors with area rugs for minimum of 30 days. Even though the surface may feel hard to the touch it will take 30 days for polyurethane to be fully cured and hardened.

Allow one week before using water based cleaning products on the floor.
