Floor Sanding Falmouth
Falmouth Floor Sanding (TR11): If you have wooden floorboards in your home in Falmouth, you might be thinking about having them sanded down and used as the final floor surface, replacing your existing carpets with a beautiful and hard wearing floor, free of dust, allergens and mites. This can be done with both soft and hardwood floors and it can even add value to your property.
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 Falmouth, 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 Falmouth 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, Bona, Pallmann and Lagler, and most of these are available to hire in places around Cornwall if you cannot find any in Falmouth 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.
Your Falmouth floor sanding contractors will probably ask you to clear everything from any rooms that are to be worked on, although they may be prepared to help you with this if you are unable to do it yourself. Chat with them about it beforehand and see what can be worked out. A clear, clean room is essential when carrying out this sort 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.
To end up with a really smooth and damage free floor surface, some additional repair work may need to be done. The entire floor will have to be inspected with a fine tooth comb to identify any splits, defects and cracks, which can be repaired and filled with a good quality wood filler. Similar attention can be given to holes left by nails or screws and damage caused by carpet grippers and threshold strips. The wood filler needs to be matched at closely as possible to the colour of the wood.
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.
