Floor Sanding Littlehampton
Littlehampton Floor Sanding (BN17): If you are fed up with having carpets in your home in Littlehampton, and would prefer a low maintenance floor that is easy to clean and doesn't gather dust and allergens, perhaps a wooden floor surface may be the answer. If you already have wood floorboards under that dusty old carpet then you are already halfway there. You could have this flooring sanded down and end up with a practical and beautiful floor surface that will be the envy or your friends.
To have floor sanding done properly it is usually advisable to call in a local Littlehampton floor sanding company who specialise in this sort of work. With a bit of research you will find that there are several in the Littlehampton area and other places in West Sussex. Whilst you could have a bash at doing your own floor sanding it is not really a DIY sort of job because some quite expensive equipment is needed to carry it out effectively. A decent Littlehampton floor sanding company will have all the proper gear.
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 Littlehampton 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.
Of course this professional machinery is available for hire throughout West Sussex, if not in Littlehampton itself, if you decide to go down the do-it-yourself route. It isn't cheap to hire, so get yourself organised and try to get all the sanding done in one day. You will obviously not have to stress about this if you employ a flooring company as they will provide all this equipment themselves.
Your Littlehampton 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.
Once the sanding has been finished your floor may need some minor repairs and general tidying up. Larger nail and screw holes can be filled with an appropriate wood filler and given a final rub down with smooth sandpaper. Cracks and splits can also be given the same treatment. If there are any lumps of wood missing these can be carefully repaired, filled and also rubbed down.
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.
