I think I am still in shock. My family is too.
Our 20 year old floors are simply gorgeous now.
I must share our “No Sanding Non Toxic Wood Floor Refinishing” discovery with you.
I would have done this during our DIY Kitchen Makeover (found here) if I had known.
Here’s how it all began.
While skimming through some coupon advertisements I came across a coupon for:
“Mr. Sandless Floor Refinishing”.
I was extremely skeptical at first until I studied the photos.
I shared the info. with my husband and we called for a free estimate.
A lovely couple came out on a Saturday and explained the full process and gave us a quote.
In a nut shell, they explained:
1. No sanding required.
2. No toxic chemicals, or harsh odors.
3. More affordable because there is less labor/time.
4. Done in one day.
5. Can go shades darker if preferred.
6. 5 year warranty
7. I think I made my point.
We couldn’t say, “No.”
Our floors were in desperate need of help.
The price was right, and the time was right.
This is what we started with:
This is what we ended up with:
Here’s more before & after I put together for you.
This is what you can expect if you decide to have your floors done.
The day before you will need to remove all of your furniture from the floor.
This was the hardest part for us, but well worth it.
I recommend hiring a professional mover to move everything out and back after the floor is finished.
Unfortunately, I suffered a back injury when we moved our furniture.
It may seem easy, but trust me on this one.
If you are doing your kitchen, plan ahead for your meals for the day.
We hung out in our bedrooms and even left for a while so the 2 gentleman could work.
The guys were very punctual and arrived bright and early with their special “slippers” in hand.
First, they prepare the floor by cleaning it with special high speed floor machines with abrasive pads.
There was absolutely no mess what so ever.
Next, they sealed it with their special sealants and top coats.
When they applied our top coats, we worked with them “in discussion” to achieve the color we desired at no extra expense.
When I asked them to go darker, they did.
They knew Red knew what she wanted.
If you prefer them with no color, that’s fine too.
The coats dry amazingly fast.
The entire process lasted approx. 7 hours.
By 5pm we were walking on our floor.
We had a blast that night just admiring it and sliding around on it.
We were laughing at our kitty, Sylvia, because she acted like it was ice at first.
Furniture went back the next day.
For more proof, we did more rooms…see part 2 here.
