Do I Have to Move Out When I Get Wood Floors Installed?

Wood floor install

No. Not with SVB Wood Floors. With most wood floor companies, first, there’s the installation, then the messy sanding, then the staining and sealing fumes. You basically have to abandon your home for several days…but not with SVB Wood Floors. We give you hardwood floors without the hassle.

Dustless Sanding – No Mess and No Moving Out

We use the Bona Atomic Dust Containment System (DCS) with all of our wood floor installations. All airborne dust is trapped before it can spread throughout your home or business. Then it is transported to the Atomic DCS trailer outside. No dust in your home, no dust in the ductwork to fly around later, and no dust to ruin your perfect finish. Did you know that dust from hardwoods (deciduous trees that lose their leaves) is considered a Group I carcinogen, a substance known to cause head, neck, and lung cancer in humans? 

The BONA system reduces airborne dust by 99.8% – the only dust left in your home is what’s already there. Whether we’re refinishing an existing wood floor or installing a brand new one, dust is not an issue. Not only is it great for the customer, but it saves us time and money. There’s no need to tape off rooms and there’s no time wasted cleaning up that mess. It’s really the only way to go.

We realized right away that dustless sanding was the best thing for everyone involved. It saves us time and keeps the customer’s home clean. The minute I heard about it, I knew it was well worth the investment,” Steve Brattin, owner of SVB Wood Floors. “That was over 15 years ago, and that’s the level of service our customers have come to expect.” – Steve Brattin, owner of SVB Wood Floors

Wood Floor Finishing without the Fumes

Our multi-step staining & refinishing process is also easy to live with. After we carefully apply the stain and it dries, we finish the floor with several coats of an environmentally safe, durable, and quick-drying topcoat. In fact, OSHA classifies finishes as Class 1, 2, or 3 with 3 being the safest, and our water-based finish is a Class 3 finish. There are no strong fumes or VOCs (volatile organic compounds) to breathe. And talk about quick-drying, you can walk on your new floor (with stocking feet) two to three hours after the finish is applied. That’s fast.

It was nice to be able to stay in our home while the work was being done. Dust was not an issue at all, nor were fumes. Most importantly, the floors look amazing!” – Brandi, Lee’s Summit, MO
