Floor Sanding Services – Wood Flooring Information

By On February 23, 2016 No Comments

Wood floors compliment so many settings and this can range from aged oak floors in a traditional home to pristine hardwood floors in modern properties. One common factor is that, once worn, they will need to be restored by a floor sanding specialist.

If you are sat reading this and looking down at your tired-looking wooden floor, wondering if it would be possible to bring it back to life? Find out more information here:

What are some of the myths about floor sanding that need to be clarified?

Myth 1: Sanding wood floors creates a lot of mess and dust

Floor Sander DurhamThis couldn’t be further from the truth. Modern improvements has meant that the technology of dust free floor sanding has surpassed many expectations. This has virtually eliminated the creation of dust particles that once plagued the traditional method.

It is also up to the individual company to ensure that mess is kept to an absolute minimum. We treat our client’s properties with respect; this means that the area is fully protected and care is taken during the process of sanding the floors.

Myth 2: Wood floor sanding can only be afforded by the rich

Floor Sander MiddlesboroughWhilst technologies have advanced, so has demand. Floor sanding as a process has come on leaps and bounds and this has meant that we are able to offer competitive, cost-effective quotations to complete the work. With advanced equipment and improved products, the process has become faster, more efficient and therefore affordable for many budgets.

So what are the different elements that need to be considered prior to sanding wooden floors? We will identify the type of wood, the environment that it is laid in and the finish that is required by any particular client. This information then enables us to offer information and advice that will benefit the project.

Parquet Flooring County Durham

This Oak Parquet floor was discovered under some carpeting during a home restoration project. It was identified that it was approximately 110 years old. Our client wasn’t sure if we could bring it back to life such was the obvious wear on the surface!

We visited his home a few days earlier to patch sand a sample area which gave us a glimpse of the possibilities of the lovely Oak floor under the cloud of deterioration!

We started a little gentler on this project with a 60 grit belt working through to highlight this beautiful old Oak flooring.

Half way through the sanding process we mixed fine sand dust with quick drying glue and screeded the floor to fill the many existing gaps. This also worked to give the floor a complete and more solid appearance.

Before finishing the floor sanding process the wood floor was protected with several coats of Pallmann Magic Oil. Our experience in the wood restoration field has allowed us to identify the best-available product formulations for individual and specific phases of the process. It means that we are equipped to tailor our services to achieve the best possible finish that will stand the test of time.

Restoring Oak Flooring South Durham

By On February 10, 2014 No Comments

Wood flooring is an incredibly versatile flooring option and it really can boost the appearance of any area of your home. It is relatively low maintenance when looked after; some wood floors suffer a lot of wear and tear and can start to show scuffs, scratches and markings over many years.

This client’s home was a beautiful, substantial Georgian period residence in the Barnard Castle area of South Durham. With a lot of refurbishment ongoing throughout, our work was part of a programme of fantastic improvement.

We were quite surprised at how badly damaged the surface of the narrow Oak floor boards were when we first saw the floor. This was due to previous carpets being glued in place over many years; you can see from the photos how the heavy duty glue had etched into the surface of the Oak floor which helped make up the once beautiful sprung floor.

It is not normal that the first sanding grit we had to use was a course 24 grit belt to try and strip away the old residue, which kept clogging the wheels of the machine as we worked gradually to clear the surface.

Oak Flooring Chester-le-Street

Oak Floor Restoration Chester-le-StreetWooden floors add style and elegance, varying from contemporary to traditional. Their initial outlay can be more than other flooring alternatives, but their longevity and value for money can far outweigh exactly that.

Solid wood floors give off warmth and are an ideal solution for households with small children or pets. Routine mopping is required to ensure wood floors are kept clean and fresh.

If, through years of use, your wooden flooring starts looking tired, Absolutely Floor Restore offer wood sanding and restoration services.

Our floor sanding process starts with a sanding process; starting with a courser sand paper through to a finer sand paper, producing a smooth finish. We use edging tools to ensure this finish is achieved along all edges of your wood floor.Oak Flooring Chester-le-Street

A primer is then applied and, once dried, a finish can be used, tailored to specifically match the look that you are wishing to achieve, whether it is wax, oil or stain.

This process is incredibly rewarding; these solid oak boards were restored in Chester-le-Street and our clients’ comment when we completed the job was “Very nice job – big improvement!”.

If you would like to discuss any element of floor sanding, please call Mike on 0808 118 5747.
