Here are a few common questions we receive from customers.


How much does it cost?

Lakeview Flooring charges by the size/square footage of the home.  Estimates can be completed in writing after measurments are confirmed.  It is best to call us at 218-213-0633 to schedule an estimate.


How long does it take?

Each floor/project is different.   Lakeview Flooring tends to be booked 8-10 weeks out.   It is essential to preplan to ensure projects are completed when desired.  Projects such as installations or larger projects can take longer than expected as new wood needs time to cure in the home before installing. It is best to simply give us a call at 218-213-0633 for more information.


Does it smell?

The short answer is "yes".  However, because of the products we use, the smell disapates faster than most and most customers comment that is significantly less than expected.


Will my house be dusty during the process?

Lakeview Flooring uses all dust containment equipment as well as puts up plastics to assist with the dust in the rest of the home, however, it is common for a small layer to build.   We are happy to provide you with a referral to a cleaning company.


When can I walk on the new floor after completed?

Bono Traffic cures faster than most.  You can walk on it with stocking feet only in 6-8 hours (weather dependent).  Furniture can be moved in after 48 hours.  Floor is cured in an estimated 2 weeks.   Read more about Bona Traffic on our refinishing page here.


When can I put my rugs, furniture, and appliances back into place?

Lakeview Flooring waiting for 48 hours before moving in furniture and appliances.  It is recommended waiting for up to 14 days before replacing rugs.   It is also recommended felt pads used on the bottom of furniture to prevent scratching.   Also note, nothing should be slide across the floor to prevent scratching.


What is the best way to clean my floor?

Lakeview Flooring recommends avoiding any oil or wax based cleaners.  Natural cleaners such as vinegar and water mix, plain water, or windex works the best.  This will allow an easier refinishing in the future as well.
