Floor Sanding Grays

Grays Floor Finishing and Restoration

Grays Floor Sanding (RM17): If your property in Grays has wooden flooring there's always the chance that you might use this beautiful natural material as your final floor surface, instead of covering it over with man-made solutions like laminate and carpet. This is probably going to add to your property's value and will also lower the occurrence of mites, allergens and dust, which will be particularly helpful if you happen to suffer from allergies or asthma. Getting your floorboards professionally sanded down will be the initial phase of this process.

Floor sanding is not a job for the faint of heart and if you choose to proceed you will have to be ready for quite a bit of mess and upheaval. You can control this to some degree if you opt to do it yourself but not so many property owners in Grays have the skill or experience to undertake such a project. Local Grays floor sanding companies will be your likely port of call and if you cannot find a decent one nearby, there are others throughout the county of Essex who should be able to help.

Floor Sanding Grays Essex (RM17)

Your first thought will probably be that this process is gonna create an awful lot of mess and dust, however that is actually not true. Your floor sanding company won't be making use of small hand held sanders such as those you may have purchased for sanding down some paintwork or a door. They will turn up on your doorstep with some fairly hefty equipment which will include a powerful extraction system which sucks up all of the dust as the sanding proceeds.

Manufacturers such as: Pallmann, Hummer, Lagler and Bona make specialist floor sanding devices, and many of these can be rented from tool hire businesses in the Grays area, and in other Essex places, should you need one. If you are using a specialist floor sanding service for the venture, you won't need to stress about that though. It is however worth bearing in mind if you do choose to do your own floors.

Before any sanding work begins the relevant rooms will need to be completely clear of furniture. Carpeting and related flooring materials will have to be removed, as will screws and nails that are protruding from the floor. The sanding equipment has got to be swept around the room, therefore it's better if there aren't any obstacles in the way.

Once the floor has been sanded with a roughish glasspaper, any essential repair work can be conducted before the final smooth sanding finish is implemented. Missing pieces of floorboard can be exchanged, cracks and splits can be fixed and any obvious holes left by nails, screws and other fittings can be carefully caulked with a colour-matched wood filler, to give your flooring a professionally finished look.

Sealing and varnishing your newly sanded flooring is the final part of the process. This is the time when you really notice the changes in your flooring. A coat of an appropriate sealer (such as Liberon Floor Sealer), will help to emphasise the beautiful natural colours of the timber, provide the varnish with a sound base, and offer some further protection against various kinds of damage. Two or three coats of a top quality varnish should then be applied, giving plenty of time for dying between coats.

When you're thinking about the possibility of sanding down your wooden floor, you might start to wonder whether it's actually worth all of the effort, disruption and dust. If you find that you're having second thoughts about having this done, it may be advisable to go over the advantages and disadvantages of the floor sanding procedure, to find out if that persuades you one way or another. The disadvantages have already been touched on (dust, hard work and disruption), so let's consider the positive aspects, or in other words - the benefits.

  • Makes Your Floor Look New Again: With a previously exposed and used hardwood floor it's likely to show some signs of wear in time and the floor sanding and polishing process will return it to its former glory.
  • Discourages Pests: Pests and bugs adore the splits and crevices that are the trademark of a tired and unpolished floor. Once it's been sanded and sealed, there'll be less places for the bugs to hide.
  • Polished Floors Are Easier to Clean: When a timber floor has been sanded down, sealed and polished it is going to be a lot easier to keep clean in the future since all the cracks and splits will have been removed or filled and the freshly finished surface will no longer attract as much dust.

A floor sanding machine is the principal piece of equipment that's necessary for a floor restoration project on a wooden floor in Grays.

A belt sander is going to be employed for the donkey work, an edging sander will do the work on edges and hard-to-reach spots, and finally a buffing machine will be responsible for producing the final finished surface. In some instances, staircase sanders, corner sanders and orbital sanders will also be used, confusing the issue even more.

There are a number of manufacturers that specialise in floor sanding machinery, and the primary ones are Pallmann, Hummer, Lagler and Bona.

Calling on a specialist floor sanding company in Grays, means that you don't need to worry about all these choices and options, and can rest assured that the job will be completed properly.
