Laminate Flooring Ottawa - Banner

1) What do I need to do to prepare for my floors to be refinished?
a. Please remove all Furniture from the floors to be done
b. Better safe than sorry remove wall mounted TVs, overhanging lights and paintings

2) What does Advantage Flooring require?
a. We require electrical outlets - regular active outlets and a 220V plug are needed. Typically we use your electric oven plug and/or your electric dryer plug.
b. If not available an electrician may be needed to set up a temporary plug. Please call Advantage for more information if unclear.
c. Moreover, please check your breakers as they could trip – Don’t understand what I need to check here? Breakers – please note that if your electrical system in your home shorts breakers may need to be switched on.

3) I’m staining my floor a different colour, what do I need to do?
a. If you are staining your floors a different color, please pick out any Minwax oil based stain readily available at any hardware store (unless other arrangements have been made). Minwax oils are the best floor stains available.

4) Will there be an odor and/or fumes when you are finished?
a. Yes, if you selected water based refinishing the odor and fumes will be similar to a water based paint smell. If you selected oil based refinishing the odor and fumes will be similar to oil based paint smell.
b. Please consult a physician if you have any health concerns for your family and consult a veterinarian if you are concerned for your pets.

5) How dusty will it be?
a. It will be dusty. We will be cleaning the floor area before coating; however, dust will attach itself to walls so we recommend a thorough cleaning on completion.
b. You can do this yourself or for about $150 we can arrange a professional cleaning company to come in a take care of this for you.
c. We do leave our full garbage bags onsite...please let us know and we can put them at the corner for regular garbage disposal. If this is an issue we can take it offsite but please request it before the service starts.

6) My dog/cat is constantly shedding, what should I do during the process?
a. If your animal sheds a lot of hair please have them confined to a space either off site or away for the floors for a day before, during and a day after the process as hair from the animal can float on to the finish.

7) How long will it take to dry?
a. It will take 8-12 hours to dry after each coat. At which point you should be able to walk on the floors with cleaned socked feet although we recommend as little traffic as possible between coats.
b. Wait 24-48 hours after the final coat before placing your furniture back. Always place furniture, do not drag. If you need to drag, use moving blankets or professionals where possible.
c. Note: Please wait 30 days to put your area rugs back in place.

8) Do I need to remove the ¼ inch rounds or baseboards?
a. Yes it is preferred if you can remove them. If you ¼ rounds and or baseboards are left on, they will most likely get nicked and will require touch up painting after the floors are finished and dry.

9) If I am doing my hardwood floors in my kitchen do I need to move my appliances?
a. Yes if you want the floor completely done underneath. If the customer does not move it Advantage will do everything possible to make sure it looks like its done properly. Usually this is OK as the customer will always have a fridge or stove on top of that portion of the floor.

10) How is payment processed?
a. A deposit is required to book a floor finishing project. Deposits are accepted via an e transfer, cheque or cash. Deposits are non refundable. Please ask your salesperson for details.
b. Finally payment is due at the final inspection which is typically 24 hours after your floors are finished.

11) I work during the day, how will you access my home?
a. We will be required to enter and leave you home at different times during the process as a result we recommend using a lock box on the door. If you do not have a lock box we can provide it for you.

  • Note: we are finishing your floors in your home and not in a factory; please do not expect a “perfect” floor. Although, Advantage will strive for perfection it is not always attainable for several reasons such as the age and construction of your home, the air circulation and the finishing.

  • DO use 1 part vinegar 10 parts water when cleaning your floors
  • DO buy a good micro fiber mop
  • DO keep dogs and cats claws trim
  • DO keep your floors dry and free from water…any spills wipe up as soon as possible
  • DO buy and use felt pads for underneath furniture…Bouclair is a good place as they sell them for $1.99 a pack!
  • DO NOT wear shoes in the house…especially high heels
  • DO NOT use murphy’s oil, pine sol or anything else that is too ph. acid or ph. Basic
  • DO NOT over-clean. It puts more water and chemicals on the wood, drying it out.
