Scope of Work: Dustless Floor Refinishing, Pet Stain Removal

The owners of this home called our team at Monk’s to help fix up the floors in their home. Like any home, after years of wear the floors needed a thorough refinishing job to lengthen their life span and improve their look. There was also a large pet stain on the dining room floor.

Pet Stain Removal & Floor Refinishing

Monk’s Method

Dustless floor refinishing is a great way to not only improve the look of your home and treat the years of inevitable damage, but it is also important in treating and protecting your floors. The particular type of hardwood floor refinishing that we perform at Monk’s is a dustless floor refinishing system.  To complete the dustless floor refinishing process a system of hoses is brought into the house.  This system not only eradicated the dust and dirt associated with other refinishing processes, but it also minimizes the amount of construction that needs to be done inside of the house. The owners of this Basking Ridge home chose to refinish the floors in their dining room, stairway, and upstairs hall way. These homeowners have several dogs and cats which accounts for the unsightly pet stain that had become an eye sore in their dining room. During the hardwood floor refinishing process all floors are thoroughly sanded. After sanding all of the floors the waterborne poly is applied.  In this particular instance our team used Bona finish which is a waterborne poly, as opposed to using an oil based finish. When using an oil based finish you must wait an entire day between applying coats.  Our team at Monk’s usually applies three coats of poly for a hardwood floor refinishing job; meaning the space being refinished is out of commission for at least three days.  Due to the fact that we were refinishing high traffic areas in this home, and the many four-legged creatures that needed to be able to get up and down the stairs, a waterborne finish was appealing because in only one day three coats could be applied. Due to the use of the waterborne poly this job was completed in only two days.
