Ivybridge Floor Finishing and Restoration

Ivybridge Floor Sanding (PL21): The appearance of your floors is something which sets your property in Ivybridge apart from those of your friends and neighbours. An attractive floor can increase the value of your home and transform the look of just about any room. The most appealing of all flooring surfaces is natural wood, and the fact is that most of us already have a timber floor, but cover it with carpets and other artificial materials. Getting your existing hardwood flooring sanded down, sealed and finished is the simple way to own that stunning floor you have always dreamed of.

If you do opt to press ahead and get your wooden floors sanded down you'll have to find the right people to do it. A swift search on the web or in the local Ivybridge newspaper will throw up several possibilities. Conversely, you could try asking family or friends to recommend someone. Carrying out floor sanding by yourself is probably not an option unless of course you are an accomplished do-it-yourselfer, and even then you will need to hire some pretty hefty equipment which could still be expensive.

You may be worried about a lot of wood dust being produced during the floor sanding procedure, but this shouldn't be the case at all if you opt to call in a professional Ivybridge floor sanding company. They will use specialist floor sanding machines which include powerful extraction systems, quickly drawing up any wood dust that is generated and storing it until it can be properly disposed of. If you went hammer and tongs at it with your own little power sander you'll fill your house with fine dust and get yourself in a right pickle.

Companies such as: Pallmann, Bona, Hummer and Lagler make specialist floor sanding machinery, and most of these can of course be hired out from tool hire businesses in the Ivybridge area, and in other Devon places, if you require one. If you're using a specialist floor sanding service for your venture, you won't need to worry about that though. It is however worth bearing in mind if you do choose to do your own floors.

Working in a room that's entirely devoid of furniture and other paraphernalia, is better when you are carrying out the floor sanding operation. The sanders are quite large and needs to be manoeuvred around the room, therefore stuff being in the way isn't very helpful. Clear away everything from the room and let the dog see the rabbit, it is going to make the job run so much more smoothly.

To achieve the kind of professional finish that you're interested in it will most likely be necessary to do more than just sand down your flooring and give them a coat of varnish. The chances are that there will be some minor blemishes for example cracks, splits, nail holes and screw holes, and there may even be some more serious repairs required, where sections of flooring are damaged or missing. These should all be refurbished to the best possible standard, filled with colour-matched wood filler and given a final sanding. Any wood filler used should match the colour of the floorboards, test an area before the final filling.

The last stage of this process will be sealing and finishing your floorboards. Currently not everybody uses sealant on wood floors because the modern varnishes are designed to accomplish the task of sealing and finishing your newly sanded wood surface. Our own opinion is that it's far better to give your floor a coat of sealant first, because this brings out the natural colour of the wood, gives additional 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.

Seeing that, pretty much the first thing you think about when considering the process of refurbishing your floors is all of the effort, disruption and dust, you may start to ask yourself whether it's actually worth it. Before commencing such a procedure, it's perhaps a wise idea to go through the advantages and drawbacks, to see which comes out in front. As soon as you've done this, you'll certainly have a clearer understanding of what you might achieve by sanding your flooring. The negatives have already been covered (hard work, dust and disruption), so let's take a look at the positives, or in other words - the benefits.

  • Polished Floors Are Easier to Keep Clean: As newly sanded down, sealed and buffed-up floorboards do not trap as much dust, it is going to be far easier to keep your floors clean from now on.
  • Makes Your Floor Look New Again: If you've already got a wooden floor that has been exposed and used over a period of time, it will most likely be showing signs of deterioration. The sanding and buffing process will bring back the appeal and attractiveness that your floor previously had.
  • Discourages Bugs and Pests: Although wooden flooring doesn't necessarily harbour as many pests and bugs as a carpet does, these pesky insects still like to hide in any accessible crevices and cracks that they can find between floorboards. A newly sanded and sealed floor should leave the bugs with nowhere to hide.
