Bolton Floor Sanding (BL1): If you're tired of having carpets in your property in Bolton, and would prefer to have a low maintenance floor which is simple to clean and doesn't gather dust and allergens, maybe a wooden floor surface may be the answer. If you've already got wooden floor boards under that dusty old carpeting then you're already halfway to solving the problem. You could get these floorboards sanded down and finish up with a practical and beautiful floor surface that will be envied by your friends.
If you do opt to go ahead and get your wooden floors sanded down you'll need to find the best tradespeople to do it. A swift search on the web or in the local Bolton newspaper will turn up several prospects. On the other hand, you could try asking family or friends to recommend somebody. Carrying out floor sanding on your own is perhaps not an option unless you're an accomplished do-it-yourselfer, and even if you are you will need to hire some pretty hefty equipment which could be costly.
You may be concerned about a whole lot of wood dust being produced during the floor sanding process, but this should not be the case at all if you choose to bring in a professional Bolton floor sanding service. They'll use purpose built floor sanding machines which include potent extraction systems, easily sucking up any wood dust that is produced and storing it until it can be disposed of properly. If you went at it with your own little electric sander you will fill the house with dust and get yourself in an awful mess.
Manufacturers like: Lagler, Hummer, Bona and Pallmann make professional floor sanding devices, and many of these can of course be hired out from tool hire providers in the Bolton area, and in other Greater Manchester places, should you need one. If you're using a professional floor sanding service for your venture, you will not need to be worried about that though. It is however worth bearing in mind if you do choose to do your own floors.
Your chosen Bolton floor sanding specialists will likely request that you clear out everything from any rooms that are going to be worked on, although they may be prepared to help you with this, if you're not able to do it on your own. Discuss it with them beforehand and see what can be worked out. A clear, clean room is crucial when conducting this kind 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.
As soon as the flooring has been sanded with a roughish glasspaper, any essential repair work can be conducted before the final fine sanding finish is completed. Missing or broken pieces of flooring can be replaced, cracks and splits can be mended and any ugly holes left by screws, nails and other fittings can be carefully caulked with a wood filler of matching colour, to give your flooring a professionally finished look.
The sealing and varnishing of your freshly sanded floorboards is the final step in the procedure. This is the time when you will really start to appreciate the difference in your floor. A coating of a suitable sealant (for instance Liberon Floor Sealer), will help to enhance the beautiful natural tones of the wood, provide a sound base for the varnish, and offer some added 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.
When you are thinking about the possibility of sanding your wooden floor, you may begin to wonder whether it's actually worth all the dust, disruption and effort. If you find you're having second thoughts about having this done, it might be a good idea to run through the positives and negatives of the floor sanding process, to see if this sways you one way or the other. We have already pointed out the negatives - floor sanding can involve a lot of dust, hard work and disruption. But what about the pros?
- Makes Your Floor Look New Again: If you already have a timber floor which has been exposed and used for quite some time, it will probably be showing the telltale signs of wear. The floor sanding and finishing process will bring back the beauty and appeal that your floor had previously.
- Discourages Pests and Bugs: Although wooden flooring doesn't necessarily attract as many bugs and pests as a carpet, these pests still like to hide themselves in any available splits and crevices that they can find between the floorboards. A sanded and sealed floor will leave the pests with nowhere to hide.
- Polished Floors Are Easier to Keep Clean: Cracked and worn floorboards are inclined to trap more dirt and dust, and once you have sanded down, sealed and buffed-up your floorboards they will be a lot simpler to clean and less likely to attract dust.

Bolton Wood Floor Maintenance
A hardwood floor needs routine maintenance, regardless of whether its in a busy pub, an office or the living area of your house. Hoover up dust daily if possible and clean using a decent wood floor cleaner and a microfibre cloth or mop. Don't forget to use soft pads on the feet of furniture, take off shoes before strolling into the room, and immediately wipe away liquids that are spilt on the floorboards, in particular anything that is chemical based or hot. 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.
