How To Avoid Wood Floor Restoration Scams

Twenty years ago, AllstateCleaning.Com was one of the first companies to restore wood floors without sanding. Since our exclusive process does not employee sanding, chemical abrasion or the use of polyurethane, we absolutely guarantee our clients no dust, no fumes and spectacular results. An unlike some unproven methods that take 24 to 72 hours to cure, our time tested system can be applied over waxed floors, and no furniture needs to moved out of the room. In addition, our process dries instantly and you can walk on your floors as soon as we are finished. Plus we absolutely, positively guarantee that our finish will not peel off, become cloudy, blotch or streak. And unlike some processes, we do not use acrylic polymer floor finishes that will ruin a wood floor. When comparing wood floor contractors, they should have have at least 20 years of wood floor expertise. And it wouldn't hurt to cheack their reputation with the local Better Business Bureau at www.bbb.org . They should also be able to provide you with at least 50 current residential references. Commercial references are fine but keep in mind that most commercial clients are price, time and budget driven so they do not require the quality of workmanship that most homeowners demand. Also, any contractor you choose should be willing to do a small test area in your home free of charge to insure your complete satisfaction. You should also avoid contractors who state that should their floor finish become cloudy, blotchy or peel off, they will credit what you already paid for their unproven process towards a full blown sanding job. Since these types of firms will not guarantee anything in writing, and since they will be doing the sanding, they have nothing to lose and all to gain. However, you have lost time and money on the first job,you floors look awful, and now you're stuck with shelling out more money on a high cost,and messy sanding job. So when choosing a wood floor contractor, make sure you do your homework and choose carefully.
