Refinish Hardwood Floors

This is another blog post inspired by what I actually needed to learn to do.

Essentially, the process can be explained as:


  • Sand your floors, eventually using a very fine sandpaper.
  • Clean all of the dust off.  
  • One final cleaning
  • Stain
  • Two coats of polyurethane.

One landlord I know strongly suggested to me that I should go with the oil-based polyurethane.  He says it is much more durable.  This video argues for the water-based.  I leave that up to you.
