Driffield Floor Sanding (YO25): If you are tired of having carpeting in your property in Driffield, and would rather have a relatively low maintenance floor that is easy to clean and will not attract allergens and dust, perhaps a wooden floor surface may be the solution. If you have already got timber floorboards under that dusty old carpeting you are already halfway to solving the problem. You could get this flooring professionally sanded down and finish up with a practical and eye-catching floor surface that will be the envy or your friends.
To have floor sanding carried out properly it is almost always preferable to retain the services of a local Driffield floor sanding company who specialise in this type of project. With some groundwork you will discover that there are quite a few in the Driffield area and other areas of East Yorkshire. Although you could have a crack at tackling your own floor sanding it's not truly a DIY sort of task, since some pretty costly equipment is required to carry it out successfully. A professional Driffield floor sanding company will come armed with all the right tools.
The kind of hand held sander that you most likely have in your tool kit is not the proper choice for a job of this size, and you could easily get yourself in a right pickle if you try to tackle the job with one of these. Any respectable floor sanding company in Driffield won't even think about using tools like this for such a task and will be armed with specialist floor sanding machines that make short work of the sanding without much mess or dust.
Companies like: Lagler, Bona, Hummer and Pallmann produce professional floor sanding systems, and most of these can be hired out from tool hire businesses in the Driffield area, and elsewhere in East Yorkshire, should you require one. If you are using a professional floor sanding service for your venture, you won't need to concern yourself with that though. It is however worth bearing in mind if you do choose to do your own floors.
Having a room that's entirely devoid of furniture and other paraphernalia, is better when you're undertaking the floor sanding operation. The sanding equipment is fairly large and has to be swung easily around the room, therefore stuff being in the way isn't very helpful. Clear everything out of there and let the dog see the rabbit, it is going to make the task run so much more smoothly.
To achieve a beautifully smooth and damage-free floor surface, some additional repair work may have to be done. The whole floor will have to be examined with a fine tooth comb to pinpoint any defects, splits and cracks, which can be repaired and filled with a colour-matched wood filler. Similar consideration can be applied to holes left behind by nails or screws as well as damage caused by the removal of threshold strips and carpet grippers. The wood filler needs to be matched at closely as possible to the colour of the wood.
The last phase of this process will be sealing and finishing your floorboards. Currently not everyone uses sealer on timber flooring because the contemporary varnishes are supposed to do the job of finishing and sealing your sanded wood surface. Our own opinion is that it is better to give your floor a good coat of sealer first, as this brings out the natural shade of the wood, gives further protection against staining and scratching, and gives a perfect base for the final coating of varnish. For varnishing use a good quality polyurethane product such as Ronseal Diamond Hard Floor Varnish and give it two or three coats.
When you're considering the possibility of sanding down your timber floorboards, you might begin to wonder whether it's really worth all the disruption, effort and dust. If you are having second thoughts about whether you want to put yourself and your family through so much aggravation, it may pay you to look at the advantages and disadvantages of the floor sanding process. The drawbacks have already been mentioned (dust, disruption and effort), so let's look into the pros, or in other words - the benefits.
- Discourages Bugs and Pests: Even though floorboards don't necessarily harbour as many bugs and pests as a carpet, these pests still tend to hide away in any accessible crevices and splits that they are able to find between the boards. A sanded and sealed floor will leave the bugs with few places to hide.
- Polished Floors Are Easier to Keep Clean: Seeing as newly sanded down, sealed and polished flooring doesn't attract so much dust, it's going to be much easier to keep your floor clean from now on.
- Makes Your Floor Look New Again: If your existing timber floor is becoming worn and tired, a really good sanding and finishing will make it seem like new once again.
