Floor Sanding Penwortham
Penwortham Floor Sanding (PR1): The look of your flooring is something which sets your property in Penwortham 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 Penwortham, 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.
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.
Of course this professional machinery is available for hire throughout Lancashire, if not in Penwortham 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.
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.
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 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.

Wood Floor Maintenance Penwortham
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.
