Bluford Jackson and Son also has the added benefit of our new dust containment system. The dustless trailer attaches to the sanding equipment leaving virtually no dust behind.
What to expect before, during, and after you have decided to refinish your hardwood floors.
All of the furniture, window treatments, and wall decor will need to be removed form the room.
Sanding, finishing, and refinishing hardwood floors can be noisy and can cause disruptions in the home. The dust containment system can minimize the mess, but no system is 100% effective. When the finish is being applied it is imperative that they are not walked upon until the finish is completely dried. The time required will vary depending on the type of finish used. The average size job can take up to a weeks time.
Preventive maintenance is recommended in order to prolong the life of your hardwood floors. After the floor is dry we recommend placing felt pads on the bottom of any furniture to minimize scratches. Place rugs in front of all doors, avoid the ones with rubber backing, these can discolor your floors. You should never walk on the floors with cleats or high heals.
Variations in the appearance of your wood flooring is very normal no two boards are exactly alike. As the floor ages, coloring can change. This is normal due to expose to the elements. Periodically changing the furniture arrangement or placement of area rugs can minimize the expose to sunlight that your floor receives, prolonging floor coloring. Seasonal changes in the humidity can cause the floor to expand and contract. Cracks between the boards are normal during high and low humidity seasons.
Maintain your floors by cleaning them regularly. Sweeping with a soft bristle broom, and vacuuming with a soft floor attachment. You should also clean your floor periodically with a professional hardwood floor cleaner recommended for your floors. Running a humidifier throughout the winter months can reduce the gaps or crack in your floors.
