Floor Sanding Milton Keynes
Milton Keynes Floor Sanding (MK1): If you are fed up with having carpets in your home in Milton Keynes, 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.
If you do decide to go ahead and get your wooden floors sanded down you will need to find the right people to do it. A quick search on the internet or in the local Milton Keynes newspaper will turn up a few possibilities. Alternatively you could try asking family or friends to recommend someone. Doing floor sanding yourself is probably not an option unless you are a really accomplished DIYer, and even then you will have to hire some pretty decent equipment which could still be costly.
Your first thought will probably be that this is going to create an awful lot of mess and dust, but that is actually not the case. Your floor sanding company will not be using little hand held sanders such as those you might have used for sanding down a door or some paintwork. They will turn up with some pretty hefty equipment which includes an extraction system that sucks up all the dust as the sanding progresses.
The best floor sanders are made by companies like: Hummer, Lagler, Pallmann and Bona, and most of these are available to hire in places around Buckinghamshire if you cannot find any in Milton Keynes 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.
Having a room that is completely clear of furniture and anything else is preferable when you are carrying out the floor sanding operation. The sanders are quite large and need to be swung around the room, therefore having stuff in the way is not ideal. Clear everything out of there and let the dog see the rabbit (as they say), it will make the job so much simpler.
To get the sort of professional finish that you are looking for it will almost certainly be necessary to do more than simply sand down your floorboards and give them a coat of varnish. There are bound to be some minor imperfections such as splits, nail holes, screw holes and cracks, and there may even be some larger repairs needed where sections of floorboard are missing or damaged. These should all be repaired to the best possible standard, filled with 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.
Before the newly sanded wood floor is given its final coats of varnish, it should be sealed with a good quality product like Liberon. While some people think that this is no longer necessary, you are only going to do this process once, so you might as well do it properly. Wood sealer gives the floor that extra bit of protection and helps prevent damage from staining, heat and scratching. It also builds a good base onto which the final varnish can be applied.
Wood Floor Maintenance Milton Keynes
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.
