So true.  Great info.  I have seen a dustless system before and it was awesome.

 

I wish people would just pull up the carpet from their hardwood when selling.  It shows so much better.

Can you tell me which is better or how the finish looks different between oil based and water based poly?

Debbie, never thought about changing the color when refinishing. How many times can you refinish 3/4 inch hardwood?

Debbie ~ I've used the "dust free" method of hardwood refinishing multiple times, and they do a great job containing the dust inside large bags.  What an improvement over the older method, where the dust got all over everything in the house.  Hardwood floors under carpets should be uncovered if the home is going on the market, because they're a real asset when selling.

Debbie-I always enjoy your insight when it comes to flooring, I met with a client last night in Seattle and needs her hardwood floors redone, the dust-free sounds perfect.

Debbie, I'm trying to talk one of my buyers into refinishing rather than carpeting their floors in a recent purchase.  I think they'll be amazed at the difference.   Good stuff!

I have a baby grand piano and this dustless method of sanding sounds fabulous. It sounds like it's well worth the expense.

Hi Debbie...Congratulations on your feature. A lot of homes here built prior to the 80's have Hardwood under the Carpet..many home owners carpeted their homes because in those days you needed to polish them with a floor polisher weekly...may switched to carpet to reduce the labor to maintain the Old Hard Wood Floors.

Debbie, there are so many people not only on AR but on the web that are more educated about Floors, thanks to your steady and unselfish education of all about flooring. I always smile when I see blog post about people complaining that they do not know what to write about. Here you are for years how many different post have you written about floor coverings?:))
