The question is… How often should I re-stain /refinish my oak hardwood floors?
The answer is… There is no set time table to refinish. The easy answer is when your floor is looking dull and losing luster.
Although the floor might be looking dull, it may not need a complete refinish. If the floor is looking a little dull and has light scratches, it might just need a simple screening instead of a complete sand and finish. Rescreening is far less expensive and not very intrusive.
