This depends on the layout of your home and the floors we are refinishing. Most of our clients stay in their homes and simply avoid the rooms where we are working. The final coat of finish dries quickly, and the floor will be ready for light usage and traffic (stocking feet) after 4-6 hours. Furniture can be put back after 24 hours and rugs after 7 days. During your free consultation we will map out a schedule of when the floor will be open to traffic.
