Floor Sanding Sandown

Sandown Floor Sanding (PO36): If you are fed up with having carpets in your home in Sandown, 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.

Hiring a professional floor sanding company in Sandown will mean that the job is done properly and with as little dust and mess as possible. If you used your own hand-held sanding machine you would get dust everywhere throughout the house and it could take months to clear. With specialist sanding equipment all the wood dust is sucked up by a powerful extraction system, leaving just a perfectly smooth wood surface that can then be finished appropriately.

Specialist floor sanding machines are not of course exclusive to the professionals, so if you do decide to have a go at sanding your own floors you could always hire the necessary equipment which is readily available somewhere in the Sandown or Isle of Wight area. Ask the hire company exactly what you need and they will advise as to the best machines for your project. There are some well known makes of floor sander including Bona, Hummer, Pallmann and Lagler.

Floor Finishing SandownFloor Finishing Sandown

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 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.

Maintenance of Wood Floors

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.
