By On June 14, 2017 Under Floor Sanding

The key to success is the careful preparation and understanding required in order to achieve the best result. Floor sanding is an incredible process that allows true professionals to transform a dull and lifeless floor to a beautifully smooth and well-protected floor.

Wooden floors are well-equipped to deal with daily challenges such as foot fall as well as fluctuations in both moisture and temperature.

Although sanding wooden floors is a detailed process and can need quite an adaptive approach, we have devised the following four stages that briefly outline the process to achieving a perfectly restored wood floor:

Step 1: it is important to survey the floor for damage. This will dictate the restoration approach and will highlight scratches, worn areas and even repairs. Areas that require wood floor repairs need to be found at this stage so that the appropriate solution can be planned.

As with so many other things, the preparation is key and can offer the difference between a successful or unsuccessful result. The area being restored needs to be cleared of furniture and belongings and the floor needs cleaning and sweeping. Dirt and contaminants needs to be removed and a wood cleanser or degreaser can be used to offer additional help.

Step 3: this takes into account the requirement to sand the wooden boards. Progressively finer grades of sand paper are used on industrial machinery in order to achieve a smooth finish. Our dust extraction system means that there is virtually no dust created in this process. This has transformed the way in which this provision is offered.

Step 4: the floors are then refinished using a selected wood finish. Whether this is a stain, lacquer, oil or wax, your chosen specialist will offer advice on what would work best for your floor. Multiple layers of floor finish will fully protect your floor and leave it looking great.
