One of the most common questions that I get asked when we visit with homeowners to do the onsitevaluations is: "Is it going to be messy/dusty?"
When we refinish your countertops or floors we always use a resurfacing process that involves water. Unlike resurfacing hardwood this process is dust free. Though it is dust free it is not mess free. As such we do what we can to contain the mess. For countertop refinishing we always cover cabinets, appliances and adjacent wall surfaces with plastic. We do this becuase, though the slurry does not cause damaged to these surfaces, it is a lot easier to pull plastic than it is to wipe down every surface in your home when we are done. More importantly though properly protecting all surfaces adjacent to our working environment shows that we have as much respect for your home as you do.
When we resurface counters the bathroom or kitchen can look almost its under quarentine. However, the extra time it takes at the begining to properly mask off our working area save us time at the end and save our customers the agravation of dealing with a messy contractor, which is perhaps one of the biggest complaints homeowners have when they hire someone to do work in their homes.
When we resurface floors we cover all adjacent surfaces such as carpet and hardwood with plastic but we also run the plastic two feet up the wall from the floor. This helps minimize the risk of getting slurry (the waste product from the refinishing process) splatter on the walls, baseboards and adjacent surfaces.
