Here at Voyageur Flooring we receive a lot of questions via email. I received a popular question this morning that I thought I would answer publicly with the hope that it would help some other Minneapolis/St. Paul homeowners who are contemplating refinishing their hardwood flooring.
The quesiton is: I know that I have hardwood floors underneath the carpet, should I pull up the carpet? The answer is: it doesn’t matter to us! We can easily get an idea as to what’s underneath the carpet simply by pulling back the corner and based on the dimension of the room, provide an accurate estimate. If you want to pull it up yourself, go ahead! If you don’t, we’ll gladly pull it up for you and even dispose of the carpet on your behalf.
Finding hardwood floors underneath carpet is a great surprise! I always wonder why someone would cover hardwood floors, I digress…
If you are thinking of pulling up the carpet and refinishing your hardwood floors, call the Twin Cities hardwood flooring experts today!

Often times the summer consists of taking trips to see relatives or maybe a vacation for your family. These trips and endeavors are what makes summer so much fun. Especially here in Minnesota, sometimes we live life as though we only have a few months of the year to accomplish so much. And rightfully so when you think about how long and boring winter can be. While you are out and about taking trips and having a great time, consider that your empty house is a great time to have your hardwood floors refinished by Voyageur Flooring. Even if you are gone for only a couple days, that’s usually enough time for Voyageur Flooring to refinish your hardwood floors.
Don’t procrastinate caring for your hardwood floors! If you need a professional to refinish your floors, call Voyageur Flooring and we will work with your busy summer schedule to get the job done right. We have some great references that we’d encourage you to read (references).

The four most common reasons to refinish the hardwood floors in your home:
1. Preparing to sell your home: often times refinished hardwood floors can give a home that’s being prepared to go on the market a refreshed look. In today’s real estate market, refinishing your hardwood floors may give you a needed advantage over the other homes that are for sale in your neighborhood.
2. Spruce up a home you just purchased: prior to moving in all of your belongings, refinishing your hardwood floors can be easily done in an empty house. Living in a home that is being worked on can be a pain so it’s a good idea to accomplish as much as possible while the home is empty.
3. Your hardwood floors haven’t been refinished in 7-10 years: homeowners often procrastinate the refinishing of their hardwood floors. If you occupy the home, moving furniture and getting ready for a company to refinish your hardwood floors can be a chore. Their are many benefits that you can read about on Voyageur Flooring‘s website.
4. Removing of carpet: if you live in an older home and have rooms that have old carpet, there’s a good chance that hardwood flooring lies beneath your old carpet. Removing the old carpet is a great time to refinish your hardwood floors. Belongings and other objects have already been removed from the room and the hardwood floor probably will have dirt, scuff marks, tack marks from the carpet and other left over remnants from the carpet that need to be cleaned – this is a perfect chance to refinish your hardwood floors.

Often times we at Voyageur Flooring here the question: how long does hardwood floor refinishing take? Although every hardwood floor is different, hardwood floor refinishing usually takes 2-3 days. Our goal at Voyageur Flooring is to sand the hardwood floor on day one. Upon completion of hardwood floor sanding, Voyageur Flooring then thoroughly cleans the hardwood floor by vacuuming the hardwood floor. Once the hardwood floor surface has been cleaned, Voyageur Flooring will apply one coat of water based polyurethane. That usually concludes day one. Day two Voyageur Flooring buffs the hardwood floor and applies another coat of water based polyurethane to the hardwood floor. This step is repeated by the end of the second day. In some cases with older Minneapolis/St. Paul homes, the hardwood floor needs extra sanding or perhaps repair and in these cases its not uncommon to have the process take three days.
