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 Motherwell, 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.

In order to get your floors sanded without generating a huge amount of mess and wood dust a professional Motherwell floor sanding company will bring in some pretty impressive equipment. Modern sanding machines are very powerful and have an extraction system incorporated to extract all the wood dust as it is generated, meaning the whole process is relatively dust-free. So you can see why going at it with your little hand held Black & Decker sander is not really going to cut it for work like this.

Of course this professional machinery is available for hire throughout Scotland, if not in Motherwell 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.

Floor Finishing MotherwellFloor Finishing Motherwell

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.

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.

Wood Floor Maintenance Motherwell

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.
