Floor Sanding Ashington
Ashington Floor Sanding (NE63): If you or any of your family suffer from asthma or allergies, one way to help reduce the risk within your property in Ashington is to replace dusty carpets with a clean natural floor surface like wood. If you already have timber floorboards then you will just need to have them sanded down and finished. The result will be a practical, low maintenance and beautiful looking floor.
Floor sanding is not for the faint hearted and if you decide to proceed you will need to be prepared for a bit of upheaval. You could control this to some degree if you choose to do it yourself but not many homeowners in Ashington have the expertise or willingness to take on such a project. Local Ashington floor sanding companies will be your likely port of call and if you can't find a suitable on nearby, there are others throughout Northumberland who should be able to help.
Your first thought will probably be that this is going to create an awful lot of mess and dust, but that is actually not the case. Your floor sanding company will not be using little hand held sanders such as those you might have used for sanding down a door or some paintwork. They will turn up with some pretty hefty equipment which includes an extraction system that sucks up all the dust as the sanding progresses.
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 Ashington or Northumberland 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 Hummer, Pallmann, Bona and Lagler.
Although it may not always be necessary, you should really completely clear any rooms that need to be sanded. The sanding machinery is quite bulky and whoever is doing the work will need to have room to swing it around. A clean, clear room is going to make the entire process simpler, so if you can do this so much the better.
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.
When all this has been completed the floor can be finished to your taste with a hard wearing varnish. However, before this is done it is advisable to give the floor at least one coat of a good quality oil based sealer such as Liberon, which helps to bring out the wood's natural colour, provides a good base for the varnish, and offers added protection against scratches and stains.
