Refinish Hardwood Floor in Hall


Good morning,

I am attempting to refinish the hardwood floor in the dining room and the hallway today or tomorrow. THe problem is the hallway there is traffic daily and there is no alternative route to get to the bedrooms and bathroom, any suggestions or quick fixes that can allow drying in 12 hours?

Build a "bridge" or planking that will allow people access over your work.
It can be as simple as a 2x12 on top of 4x4 blocks.

Allow proper time for curing not just drying before trafficking

I agree about the bridge building thing. If that cant work, you may possible have to work on a certain part at a time. I know at my house there is constant traffic. But I also do know that if I were doing something with flooring I would probably do it during the week because I have more traffic in the kitchen and hallways during the weekend when my roommate comes home from working harvest.

Refinish Hardwood Floor in Hall


I'm debating if my floors need to be refinished or if they just need to be buffed really good. There are some spots that are questionable. Would it help just to use poly over it instead of standing and sealling and then poly???? Need help spent an hour in lowes not sure what to get
