Frequently Asked Questions

Hardwood floor refinishing is the process of sanding down the top layer of a hardwood floor to remove scratches, stains, and imperfections, followed by applying a new finish to restore its original beauty.

The frequency of refinishing depends on factors like foot traffic and wear. On average, it’s recommended every 3-5 years, but some floors may need it sooner or later.

It’s possible to DIY, but it’s a complex job. It’s often best left to professionals who have the expertise, equipment, and experience to ensure a high-quality finish.

The time varies based on the size and condition of your floors, but it typically takes 3-5 days. This includes sanding, staining (if desired), and applying finish coats.
