Wood Floor Refinishing – When Is The Best Time To Refinish?

Thursday, Dec. 13th 2018



Wood floor refinishing, whether it’s dependent upon the best time of year or due to other reasons, requires some careful consideration. Restoration of wood floors doesn’t have to be done very often – every 10 to 20 years under normal circumstances. But if the floors have lost their shine, are scratched and stained, even if you just want to change the color, then it’s a good time for wood floor refinishing.

As far as seasons go, sanding and refinishing hardwood floors in the Kansas City area can be done at any time throughout the year. But it’s probably best to have it done at a time when the weather conditions are suitable for this area of the Midwest. You do have to take into consideration the temperature indoors – it needs to be kept at 65 to 75 degrees throughout the wood floor refinishing process and for the 30 days following, but other than that there really isn’t a particular time of year that is better than any other. There is, however, a less than ideal time which is in the heat of summer when temperatures and humidity are high because the drying process takes longer.

When you’ve just bought a new-to-you home that has wood floors that are outdated or dull and have lost their luster you may want to invest in wood floor refinishing; however, it’s best to do it before you move in. You won’t have to move furniture around or stay away for the few days it takes to complete the process. Hardwood floors add value to your home; realtors can tell you – everybody wants hardwood floors these days.

Renovation work in your home when it involves wood floors is another occasion in which someone might choose to refinish. Updating the décor and changing the overall look of your home sometimes involves sanding and re-staining the floors. Refinishing the floors is less expensive than installing new floors. Before throwing out the old flooring, you should check into the viability of refinishing.

The process of re-doing the floors can take a few days so be sure to plan accordingly. Planning it around the holidays is not advised with all the festivities.

Traditional wood floor refinishing generates quite a lot of dust, making it difficult to breathe, especially if you or anyone in your home is prone to asthma.

It is an almost 100% dust-free process with no dangerous respiratory issues to worry about.

Floor Care Tip

No matter where you live whether it’s Overland Park, Shawnee, Lenexa, Olathe or anywhere in the K.C. Metro area we all struggle with dust in our homes.

When cleaning your hardwood floors, we recommend using Bona X or Windex window cleaner without ammonia. A flat terry cloth changeable mop is your best bet. We suggest wetting the terry cloth mop with the Bona X or Windex to moist state, much like towel dried hair. Lightly mist your hardwood floors, straight out of the bottle either cleaner, so that your mop will glide easily across the floor. If you are leaving streaks you are using to much cleaner. Your floor should end up dustless and clean as a whistle. To check to see if you are getting your floor clean, spray a little cleaner on the floor and wipe dry with a white paper towel. If it is still white then your wood floors are clean.
