    Default Refinishing hardwood floors

    I am thinking of refinishing my hardwood floors, and dread the thought of the mess, the smell and the drying time. I have read about a UV coating that can be put on hardwood floors that eliminates some of these issues, and wondered if anyone knew about it. Says it dries/cures instantly with little or no smell (VOC's?). It seems a little expensive and I'm wondering if it's worth it. Also, is it safe? Any experience you can offer would be appreciated. Thanks!

    It would probably be helpful if you included the name of the product to which you are referring.

    I've read the labels of many such products. They may or may not work, I don't know. However, their use would preclude going back to a urethane finish, short of re-sanding the whole floor. I have elected to just keep my floors clean with cleaners that do not leave a residue which would preclude further urethane. I am into my 6th year on my existing oil based urethane varnished floors and intend to give a re-fresher coat of urethane shortly.

    Sorry JLM, but my impression is that the product IS UV coating. If you are asking what brand, I don't know enough about it to say - which is why I was asking.

    I went back into my browser history, and here is one that I found ****** - http://vividfinish.com/uv/uv.htm, and another is http://www.flashuv.com/ - do any of these look familiar?.

    I don't know if there are any contractors might know what this is?

    Thanks again for the help!
