Q: Do I need to prepare my kitchen or bathroom before resurfacing?

A: Yes, while we'll take care of the heavy lifting once we get to your home, there is some preparation you can do make sure the resurfacing is smooth, efficient, and safe.

Here's what you can do to prepare your kitchen or bathroom for refinishing:

  • Clear the Area: Remove all personal items, toiletries, dishes, towels, and any removable fixtures from the space. This not only protects your belongings from dust and potential damage but also provides the technicians with unobstructed access to the surfaces being refinished.
  • Clean the Surfaces: While the refinishing team will do a thorough cleaning as part of the preparation, it's helpful to clean the surfaces of any major debris, soap residue, or dirt. This initial cleaning can help streamline the process.
  • Ensure Good Ventilation: Good ventilation is crucial during the refinishing process due to the fumes and odors from the materials used. If possible, open windows or set up fans to aid in ventilation.
  • Protect Adjacent Areas: If certain areas or items in the kitchen or bathroom are not being refinished, it’s wise to cover them with plastic sheeting or drop cloths to protect from any potential overspray or dust.
  • Plan for Downtime: Your kitchen or bathroom will be out of commission during the refinishing process and for a period afterward while the surfaces cure. Plan accordingly to minimize inconvenience.
  • Inform the Technicians: If there are any known issues with the surfaces (like existing damage or previous refinishing work), inform the technicians beforehand. This information can help them prepare appropriately and get the job done more quickly.
  • Safety Measures: Keep pets and children away from the work area to ensure their safety and to avoid any disruptions during the refinishing process.
