Floor Sanding Abingdon
Abingdon Floor Sanding (OX13 and OX14): If your property in Abingdon has wooden floorboards there is always the possibility that use could use this beautiful natural material as your final floor surface, rather than covering it up with man-made products such as carpet and vinyl. This will probably add some value to your property and also reduce the incidence of dust, allergens and mites, which is especially beneficial if you suffer from asthma or allergies. Having your floorboards sanded down would be the first step in this process.
If you do decide to go ahead and get your wooden floors sanded down you will need to find the right people to do it. A quick search on the internet or in the local Abingdon newspaper will turn up a few possibilities. Alternatively you could try asking family or friends to recommend someone. Doing floor sanding yourself is probably not an option unless you are a really accomplished DIYer, and even then you will have to hire some pretty decent equipment which could still be costly.
You may be worried about a lot of dust being generated during the floor sanding process but this should not be the case at all if you decide to call in a professional Abingdon floor sanding company. They will use specialist floor sanding machines which include powerful extraction systems, easily sucking up any dust that is produced and storing it until it can be properly disposed of. If you went at it with your own electric sander you will fill the house with dust and get yourself in a terrible mess. The result will also not be as good.
Specialist floor sanding machines are not of course exclusive to the professionals, so if you do decide to have a go at sanding your own floors you could always hire the necessary equipment which is readily available somewhere in the Abingdon or Oxfordshire area. Ask the hire company exactly what you need and they will advise as to the best machines for your project. There are some well known makes of floor sander including Lagler, Bona, Hummer and Pallmann.
Your Abingdon floor sanding contractors will probably ask you to clear everything from any rooms that are to be worked on, although they may be prepared to help you with this if you are unable to do it yourself. Chat with them about it beforehand and see what can be worked out. A clear, clean room is essential when carrying out this sort of work, so get all that stuff out of there! Larger heavy items of furniture could possibly be left in there and moved from end to end, but again talk with the company.
When the floor has been sanded with a roughish sandpaper, any required repairs can be carried out before the final smooth sanding finish is completed. Missing pieces of floorboard can be replaced, cracking and splits can be repaired and any ugly holes left by screws, nails and other fixings can be carefully caulked with a matching coloured wood filler, to give your floor that professionally finished appearance.
The next job is to give the sanded floor a generous coat of sealer, Liberon is usually a good choice. This provides a perfect base on which to brush the finishing coats of varnish, and offers some valuable extra protection against a number of issues which could affect your floor in the future. This will be resistant to alcohol, heat and water, and also help prevent scratching, scuffing and staining. Once dry, your floorboards can then be given a quick final sanding with smooth paper and finally 2 or 3 coats of finishing varnish.

Abingdon Wood Floor Maintenance
A wood floor needs regular maintenance no matter whether its in an office, a busy pub or the living room of your house. Sweep dust away daily if possible and clean using a patent wood floor cleaner and a microfibre cloth or mop. Remember to use felt pads on the feet of your furniture, take off shoes before walking into the room and immediately wipe away anything that is spilt on the floor, especially anything hot or chemical based. You want to avoid any areas wearing through to the bare wood, which will make it hard to repair, so keep your eyes peeled for this issue.
