Floor Sanding Cheltenham
Cheltenham Floor Sanding (GL50): If you are fed up with having carpets in your home in Cheltenham, and would prefer a low maintenance floor that is easy to clean and doesn't gather dust and allergens, perhaps a wooden floor surface may be the answer. If you already have wood floorboards under that dusty old carpet then you are already halfway there. You could have this flooring sanded down and end up with a practical and beautiful floor surface that will be the envy or your friends.
While floor sanding is not something that is impossible for you to do yourself, you will need to be able to get hold of the proper equipment and be confident in using it. If you feel you can, then by all means have a go, but you may be better to get in touch with a local floor sanding company in Cheltenham, who will arrive fully kitted out to do the job properly. If possible get recommendations from people that you know have had floor sanding done in the past.
The sort of hand held sander that you have in your toolbox is not the proper choice for a project of this size, and you could get yourself in a right pickle if you try to tackle the job with one of these. Any respectable floor sanding company in Cheltenham will not even consider using tools like this for such a task and will have professional floor sanding machinery that makes short work of it without too much mess or dust.
The best floor sanders are made by companies like: Hummer, Lagler, Pallmann and Bona, and most of these are available to hire in places around Gloucestershire if you cannot find any in Cheltenham 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.
While you could perhaps move stuff from one side of the room to the other while doing the sanding, it is much better if the room is cleared completely. This should include soft furnishings and furniture, plus any existing floor coverings such as carpets, underlay and grippers. Any screws or nails that are protruding from the floorboards will also need to be removed or punched below the surface.
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.

Cheltenham Wood Floor Maintenance
If you love your attractive new floor, you will want to keep it looking like it does right now. In order to do this it will need regular maintenance and care. You can take a few measures to avoid damaging your floor and these include taking off footwear before entering the room, wiping up spillages as soon as they happen, fitting the feet of furniture with felt pads and cleaning the floor regularly with a good quality wood floor cleaner. Keep your eyes open for worn patches because these will need treating before they break through to the bare wood.
