Floor Sanding Gloucester
Gloucester Floor Sanding (GL1): If you or any of your family suffer from asthma or allergies, one way to help reduce the risk within your property in Gloucester is to replace dusty carpets with a clean natural floor surface like wood. If you already have timber floorboards then you will just need to have them sanded down and finished. The result will be a practical, low maintenance and beautiful looking floor.
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 Gloucester, 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.
In order to get your floors sanded without generating a huge amount of mess and wood dust a professional Gloucester floor sanding company will bring in some pretty impressive equipment. Modern sanding machines are very powerful and have an extraction system incorporated to extract all the wood dust as it is generated, meaning the whole process is relatively dust-free. So you can see why going at it with your little hand held Black & Decker sander is not really going to cut it for work like this.
The best floor sanders are made by companies like: Bona, Pallmann, Lagler and Hummer, and most of these are available to hire in places around Gloucestershire if you cannot find any in Gloucester 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 Gloucester 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.
When the floor has been sanded with a roughish sandpaper, any required repairs can be carried out before the final smooth sanding finish is completed. Missing pieces of floorboard can be replaced, cracking and splits can be repaired and any ugly holes left by screws, nails and other fixings can be carefully caulked with a matching coloured wood filler, to give your floor that professionally finished appearance.
The next job is to give the sanded floor a generous coat of sealer, Liberon is usually a good choice. This provides a perfect base on which to brush the finishing coats of varnish, and offers some valuable extra protection against a number of issues which could affect your floor in the future. This will be resistant to alcohol, heat and water, and also help prevent scratching, scuffing and staining. Once dry, your floorboards can then be given a quick final sanding with smooth paper and finally 2 or 3 coats of finishing varnish.
Maintenance of Wood Floors
Regular maintenance of your wood floor is very important if it to last for years to come without the need for re-sanding it back to the bare wood and beginning the whole process over again. Keep a look out for worn patches, move furniture into different positions to even out wear and tear, and keep the whole thing clean. Clean, lightly sand, and re-coat worn areas with more varnish or acrylic seal to make it last longer.
