Floor Sanding Shipley

Shipley Floor Sanding (BD17): If your property in Shipley has wooden floorboards there is always the possibility that use could use this beautiful natural material as your final floor surface, rather than covering it up with man-made products such as carpet and vinyl. This will probably add some value to your property and also reduce the incidence of dust, allergens and mites, which is especially beneficial if you suffer from asthma or allergies. Having your floorboards sanded down would be the first step in this process.

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 Shipley, 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 Shipley 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.

The best floor sanders are made by companies like: Bona, Pallmann, Hummer and Lagler, and most of these are available to hire in places around West Yorkshire if you cannot find any in Shipley 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.

Floor Finishing ShipleyFloor Finishing Shipley

Before any sanding actually begins the relevant rooms will need to be completely clear of furniture and furnishings. Carpets and associated flooring will need to be removed, as will any nails or screws which are sticking up from the flooring. The sanding machine has to be swept around the room so it is better without any obstructions in the way.

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.

Shipley Wood Floor Maintenance

Once your floor has been completed don't just think that it can be left for years on end without any form of maintenance. Keep it well cleaned and keep an eye out for any worn patches. If any area of a varnished floor wears through to the bare wood, it can be very difficult to repair, so an occasional fresh coat of varnish or a couple of coats of acrylic sealer will help it to last for longer without having to be re-sanded.
