Before you hire a contractor, painter, cleaning company, etc., there are things you should check before you allow them in your home. Are they insured? Will you be able to get in touch with them if something goes wrong? Do they background check their employees?
I’ve put together a list of things to think about when hiring a wood flooring company. You are making an investment when you install and/or sand & finish your wood floor. Getting the right people for the job is important.

|– Many wood floor refinishing companies claim they are dust-free or dustless, but they use sanding machines with vacuum bags that still leave 10% of the wood dust in your home. That dust a carcinogen, and it is probably in your HVAC system, as well as on every interior surface in your home.||X|
|– Magnus Anderson uses the most powerful dust-containment system in the industry. It is attached to our sanding equipment and extracts the wood dust to a trailer parked outside your home while a hospital-grade HEPA filter works to keep the air in your home clean and safe.||X|
|– Contractor has a physical store location in your community. A contractor who operates a business out of the back of a truck may be difficult to find to complete a job or fix something that has gone wrong after the last bill is paid.||X|
|– Contractor has commercial liability and worker’s compensation insurance. If a worker is injured or a contractor damages your property and the contractor does not have insurance, you could be liable to pay for injuries, rehabilitation, and damages. Your homeowner’s insurance may not cover those costs.||X|
