What are prefinished hardwood floors?

Understanding Prefinished Hardwood Floors

Prefinished hardwood floors are essentially hardwood floors which are finished by the manufacturer in the factory. The alternative to this is to have the floors finished onsite after the installation process by sanding the wood down and applying the finish. The advantage to prefinishing the hardwood floors is the homeowner does not have the dust particles associated with sanding and the smell of the finishing chemicals lingering in the air after the installation process. Additionally, the prefinished floors can be nailed down and walked on almost immediately after the installation process.
