Floor Sanding Cowes
Cowes Floor Sanding (PO31): If your property in Cowes has wooden floorboards there is always the possibility that use could use this beautiful natural material as your final floor surface, rather than covering it up with man-made products such as carpet and vinyl. This will probably add some value to your property and also reduce the incidence of dust, allergens and mites, which is especially beneficial if you suffer from asthma or allergies. Having your floorboards sanded down would be the first step in this process.
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 Cowes 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.
You may be worried about a lot of dust being generated during the floor sanding process but this should not be the case at all if you decide to call in a professional Cowes floor sanding company. They will use specialist floor sanding machines which include powerful extraction systems, easily sucking up any dust that is produced and storing it until it can be properly disposed of. If you went at it with your own electric sander you will fill the house with dust and get yourself in a terrible mess.
Of course this professional machinery is available for hire throughout Isle of Wight, if not in Cowes itself, if you decide to go down the do-it-yourself route. It isn't cheap to hire, so get yourself organised and try to get all the sanding done in one day. You will obviously not have to stress about this if you employ a flooring company as they will provide all this equipment themselves.
Having a room that is completely clear of furniture and anything else is preferable when you are carrying out the floor sanding operation. The sanders are quite large and need to be swung around the room, therefore having stuff in the way is not ideal. Clear everything out of there and let the dog see the rabbit (as they say), it will make the job so much simpler.
In order to get your sanded floor up to the required standard there will be some more work to do before any sealing or finishing can take place. There could be some splits and cracks in the floorboards and also screw and nail holes, which all need to be filled with a suitably coloured wood filler. The repaired areas will need to be given a final sanding with a fine abrasive to give that super fine finish.
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.
