Floor Sanding Basingstoke
Basingstoke Floor Sanding (RG21): The look of your flooring is something which sets your property in Basingstoke apart from those of your friends and neighbours. A beautiful looking floor can add value to your home and transform the whole look of any room. The most attractive of all floor surfaces is natural wood, and the truth is that most of us already have a wooden floor, but cover it up with carpets and other artificial materials. Having your existing wooden floor sanded down, sealed and finished is the easy way to get that floor you have always dreamed of.
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 Basingstoke 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.
Hiring a professional floor sanding company in Basingstoke will mean that the job is done properly and with as little dust and mess as possible. If you used your own hand-held sanding machine you would get dust everywhere throughout the house and it could take months to clear. With specialist sanding equipment all the wood dust is sucked up by a powerful extraction system, leaving just a perfectly smooth wood surface that can then be finished appropriately.
The best floor sanders are made by companies like: Hummer, Bona, Pallmann and Lagler, and most of these are available to hire in places around Hampshire if you cannot find any in Basingstoke itself. Obviously you will only need to do this if you do elect to press ahead with your own floor sanding project, since specialist companies will have their own sanders. Check with the hire company to find out exactly what you need and take it from there if you take this route.
Before any sanding actually begins the relevant rooms will need to be completely clear of furniture and furnishings. Carpets and associated flooring will need to be removed, as will any nails or screws which are sticking up from the flooring. The sanding machine has to be swept around the room so it is better without any obstructions in the way.
Once the sanding has been finished your floor may need some minor repairs and general tidying up. Larger nail and screw holes can be filled with an appropriate wood filler and given a final rub down with smooth sandpaper. Cracks and splits can also be given the same treatment. If there are any lumps of wood missing these can be carefully repaired, filled and also rubbed down.
Sealing and varnishing your newly sanded floorboards is the last and final part of the process. This is when you really notice the difference in your floor. A coating of an appropriate sealer (for instance Liberon Floor Sealer), will help to bring out the beautiful natural colours of the wood, provide the varnish with a sound base, and at the same time offer some additional protection against various types of damage. Two or three coats of a top quality varnish should then be applied, giving plenty of time for dying between coats.
Floor sanding services are of course not only available in Basingstoke itself but also in nearby places such as Wootton St Lawrence, South View, Cliddesden, Chineham, Lychpit, Ramsdell, Newnham, Houndmills, Kempshott, Oakridge Village, Worting, Hatch Warren, Old Basing, East Oakley, Hatch, and elsewhere in Hampshire.
Maintenance of Wood Floors
Once your floor has been completed don't just think that it can be left for years on end without any form of maintenance. Keep it well cleaned and keep an eye out for any worn patches. If any area of a varnished floor wears through to the bare wood, it can be very difficult to repair, so an occasional fresh coat of varnish or a couple of coats of acrylic sealer will help it to last for longer without having to be re-sanded.
