Early Fall is easily the best time to touch up your home. With just enough time before the holiday season kicks in, this time of year is a great opportunity to evaluate whether your home could benefit from a quick project. Make sure your home looks its best before your holiday guests start arriving!
A great way to quickly freshen up the look of your interior is giving your hardwood floors a recoat or refinish. Let’s take a look at these quick and efficient options:
The Fastest Choice: Recoating
The benefits of hardwood flooring are many, but the one true flaw is the sometimes unsightly scuffing that gathers over time. Thankfully, a professional recoat is a minimally invasive process, and it only takes a few hours.
Often, the scuffs on your hardwood flooring are actually caused by a layer of dirt and grime that naturally gathers on your flooring over time. There’s a good chance a simple recoat treatment is all you need: A few hours of work, two days to rest, and you can move your furniture right back over hardwood that looks brand new.
The Slower (But Still Pretty Quick!) Choice: Refinishing
If it turns out your hardwood flooring has more physical damage than scuffing, you’ll need to have a professional refinish your floor. Thankfully, it’s not as bad as it sounds. The best modern sanding processes are minimally invasive, dust-free operations.
You’ll move your furniture out of the area that needs work. Depending on your square footage, 3-4 days is the upper limit before your home is right back where it was earlier in the week, except with floors that look immaculate enough that your guests will likely be compelled to comment.
