We underestimated how long refinishing hardwood floors takes especially that 75% of the house is hardwood. HUbby and I took on this project anticipating that we would get be done in few weeks and here it is a month have gone by and we are still working on it. We were actuially done with the last process last week but when it dried out, we didn't like the semi gloss poly urethane that my husband used so now he is re-coating it with the gloss finish polyurethane.
When my husband put the polyurethane on the stained floors, he was wearing a mask because the smell was unbearable. It also said that it can cause cancer when exposed with thescent for a long time so we were all outside except him. To make it dry faster, we used stand fans to help the process. This Ozeri 360 Oscillation tower fan, with Micro-Blade noise reduction technology was a great help for our project.
Amazon for $70.34 with free shipping. Now that the heat of the sun is super intense, these fans are a great addition to any home.
Here's how the gloss finish looks like. It makes the wood floors looks lighter because the shine catches the l natural lights from the windows. It cost us a little more to re-ciat the floors but I am happy we did it because it makes a big difference.
