Axminster Floor Sanding (EX13): If your property in Axminster has wooden flooring there's always the chance that you might use this attractive natural material as your main floor surface, as opposed to covering it with man-made products such as carpet and lino. This will probably add value to your home and will also reduce the prevalence of dust, mites and allergens, which will be especially worthwhile if you be affected by asthma or allergies. Having your floorboards sanded down is going to be the initial phase of this process.

The kind of hand held orbital sander that you probably have in your tool kit is not the proper choice for a job of this magnitude, and you could easily get yourself in a bit of a pickle if you try to take on this task with something like this.

Working in a room that's totally clear of furniture and other articles, is preferable when you are carrying out the floor sanding operation. The sanders are fairly large and has to be swung around the room, therefore stuff being in the way isn't ideal. Clear away everything from the room and let the dog see the rabbit (as they say), it will make the task run so much more smoothly.

When the flooring has been sanded with a coarse sandpaper, any necessary repair work can be conducted before the final fine sanding finish is completed. Missing or broken chunks of flooring can be exchanged, splits and cracking can be mended and any unsightly holes left by nails, screws and other fittings can be carefully caulked with a matching coloured wood filler, to give your flooring that professionally finished appearance.

The last phase of this process will be finishing and sealing your floorboards. Nowadays not everybody uses sealer on wood floors since the modern varnishes are supposed to accomplish the task of sealing and finishing your newly sanded surface. Our own opinion is that it's far better to give your floor a good coat of sealer first, as this brings forth the natural shade of the timber, gives further protection against staining and scratching, and gives the perfect base for the final coats of varnish. For varnishing use a good quality polyurethane product such as Ronseal Diamond Hard Floor Varnish and give it two or three coats.

When you are thinking about the possibility of refurbishing your hardwood floorboards, you might start to ask yourself whether it is actually worth all of the disruption, effort and dust. Before starting such a procedure, it is generally a good idea to run through the pluses and minuses, to see which side comes out on top. Once you have done this, you'll have a better insight of what you can hope to achieve by sanding your flooring. The drawbacks have already been highlighted (dust, effort and disruption), so let's look at the advantages, or in other words - the benefits.

  • Reduces the Number of Bugs: Whilst floorboards don't necessarily harbour as many unwanted pests as a carpet, these pests still tend to hide in any available cracks and splits that they are able to find between the boards. A newly sanded and sealed floor should leave the bugs with few places to hide.
  • Makes Your Floor Look Beautiful Once More: If you've already got a wooden floor which has been exposed and used for quite some time, it will likely be showing the telltale signs of deterioration. The floor sanding and buffing process will re-establish the appeal and beauty that your floor had previously.
  • Polished Floors Are Easier to Keep Clean: After a timber floor has been sanded, sealed and polished it is going to be much easier to keep clean in the future since all of the cracks and crevices will have been repaired or filled and the freshly finished surface will no longer attract as much dust and dirt.
