Chapeltown Floor Sanding (S35): If you're fed up with having carpets in your home in Chapeltown, and would rather have a low maintenance floor that's easy to clean and doesn't attract dust and allergens, perhaps a wooden floor surface may be the answer. If you already have wood floor boards beneath that dusty old carpet you're already halfway there. You could have this flooring professionally sanded down and finish up with a beautiful and practical floor surface that will be the envy or your friends.
Floor sanding isn't a job for the faint of heart and if you opt to press ahead you will need to be prepared for quite a bit of upheaval and mess. You could control this to some extent if you choose to do it yourself but not so many property owners in Chapeltown have the expertise or skill to undertake a project like this. Local Chapeltown floor sanding companies will be your likely port of call and if you cannot find a suitable one nearby, there are others operating around South Yorkshire who ought to be able to help.
Hiring a professional floor sanding company in Chapeltown will mean that the job is done correctly and with as little dust and mess as possible. If you were to use your own little hand-held sanding device you would get dust everywhere throughout your house and it could take some time to clear. When using professional sanding equipment all of the wood dust is sucked up by an efficient extraction system, leaving just a perfectly smooth wooden surface that can then be finished appropriately.
Specialist floor sanding machines aren't of course exclusive to the pros, so if you do opt to have a crack at sanding your own floors you can always hire out the required equipment which is easily obtainable somewhere in the Chapeltown or South Yorkshire area. Tell the hire company what you are doing and they will advise as to the best machinery for your project. There are some well known brands of floor sanding machine including Hummer, Lagler, Pallmann and Bona.
Having a room that is completely clear of furniture and other articles, is better when you're conducting the floor sanding process. The sanding equipment is fairly large and has to be manoeuvred around the room, therefore stuff being in the way is not very helpful. Clear away everything from the room and let the dog see the rabbit, it will make the work so much easier.
To achieve the type of professional finish that you are interested in it will probably be necessary to do a bit more than simply sand down your floorboards and slap on a layer of varnish. There are bound to be quite a few minor imperfections like cracks, splits, nail holes and screw holes, and there may even be some larger repairs needed, where chunks of floor are missing or damaged. These must all be repaired to the best possible standard, filled with wood filler and given a final sanding down. Any wood filler used should match the colour of the floorboards, test an area before the final filling.
The last phase of the process will be finishing and sealing your flooring. These days not everyone uses sealant on wood flooring because the contemporary varnishes are alleged to accomplish the task of sealing and finishing your sanded wood surface. Our opinion is that it's far better to give your floor a coat of sealant first, since this brings out the natural shade of the wood, gives extra protection against scratching and discoloration, 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.
As, pretty much the first thing you think about when considering the prospect of sanding down your floorboards is all of the disruption, effort and dust, you might start to ask yourself whether it is actually worthwhile. If you find that you're having doubts about having this done, it may be advisable to go over the benefits and drawbacks of the floor sanding procedure, to find out if that sways you one way or another. Since we have already covered the cons (disruption, dust and effort), we'll now take a look at some of the positives.
- Makes Your Floor Look New Again: With a previously exposed and used hardwood floor it is likely to show some signs of wear in time and the sanding and finishing procedure will bring it back to its former glory.
- Reduces the Number of Pests: There'll be less places for bugs to hide once you have sanded and polished your floor. Let's be honest these pesky insects love to hide in the splits and crevices of a timber floor.
- Polished Floors Are Easier to Clean: After a timber floor has been sanded, sealed and polished it will be a lot easier to keep clean in the future as all the crevices and splits will have been removed or filled and the freshly finished surface won't attract as much dust.
