Floor Sanding Horndean
Horndean Floor Sanding (PO8): The look of your flooring is something which sets your property in Horndean apart from those of your friends and neighbours. A beautiful looking floor can add value to your home and transform the whole look of any room. The most attractive of all floor surfaces is natural wood, and the truth is that most of us already have a wooden floor, but cover it up with carpets and other artificial materials. Having your existing wooden floor sanded down, sealed and finished is the easy way to get that floor you have always dreamed of.
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 Horndean, 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 Horndean 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.
Specialist floor sanding machines are not of course exclusive to the professionals, so if you do decide to have a go at sanding your own floors you could always hire the necessary equipment which is readily available somewhere in the Horndean or Hampshire area. Ask the hire company exactly what you need and they will advise as to the best machines for your project. There are some well known makes of floor sander including Bona, Lagler, Pallmann and Hummer.
Although it may not always be necessary, you should really completely clear any rooms that need to be sanded. The sanding machinery is quite bulky and whoever is doing the work will need to have room to swing it around. A clean, clear room is going to make the entire process simpler, so if you can do this so much the better.
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.
The last stage of the process will be sealing and finishing your floor. These days not everybody uses sealer on wood floors since the modern varnishes are supposed to do the job of sealing and finishing your sanded wood surface. Our own opinion is that it is better to give your floor a coat of sealant first, as this brings out the natural colour of the wood, gives extra protection against scratching and staining, and gives the perfect base for the final coats of varnish. For varnishing use a good quality polyurethane product such as Ronseal Diamond Hard Floor Varnish and give it two or three coats.

Horndean Wood Floor Maintenance
It doesn't matter if a floor is in a living room in your house, in a bustling office or in a busy pub, it still needs to be looked after and given regular maintenance to keep it in good condition and looking attractive. Exactly how much maintenance it needs will depend somewhat on the finish that has been applied to it. Oiled floors can simply be cleaned and given a new coat of oil. Lacquered or varnished floors can be cleaned and given a coat or two of acrylic seal, or bonded and given a new coat of lacquer or varnish. And Hard wax oiled floors can be cleaned, lightly sanded where it is worn and new wax applied.
