Steps after Hardwood Floors have been refinished

Here are some steps to take after your hardwood floors have been refinished:

  1. Allow the finish to cure: Give the finish time to cure and harden before walking on it or placing furniture on it. The amount of time needed for the finish to cure depends on the type of finish used, but it's usually 2-4 days.

  2. Replace furniture: Replace furniture and rugs after the finish has cured. Lift furniture instead of dragging it to prevent scratches.

  3. Sweep and dust: Sweep and dust the floors regularly to remove dirt and debris. Avoid using vacuums with beater bars or hard bristles that can scratch the finish.

  4. Clean up spills immediately: Clean up any spills or stains immediately to prevent damage to the finish. Use a soft, damp cloth to wipe up spills and avoid using harsh cleaning products.

  5. Use protective pads: Use felt pads or coasters under furniture legs to prevent scratches and damage to the finish.

  6. Avoid wearing shoes: Encourage family and guests to remove their shoes before walking on the floors to prevent scratches and dirt buildup.

  7. Schedule regular maintenance: Schedule regular maintenance, such as buffing and recoating, to keep the floors looking their best.

Following these steps will help protect your newly refinished hardwood floors and keep them looking beautiful for years to come.
