To have floor sanding done properly it is usually advisable to call in a local Shrewsbury floor sanding company who specialise in this sort of work. With a bit of research you will find that there are several in the Shrewsbury area and other places in Shropshire. Whilst you could have a bash at doing your own floor sanding it is not really a DIY sort of job because some quite expensive equipment is needed to carry it out effectively. A decent Shrewsbury floor sanding company will have all the proper gear.

Hiring a professional floor sanding company in Shrewsbury 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.

Companies such as: Hummer, Bona, Pallmann and Lagler produce professional floor sanding machinery, and many of these can of course be hired from tool hire businesses around Shrewsbury and elsewhere in Shropshire, should you need one. If you're using a specialist floor sanding service for the project, you will not need to concern yourself with that though. It is however worth bearing in mind if you do choose to do your own floors.

While you could perhaps move stuff from one side of the room to the other while doing the sanding, it is much better if the room is cleared completely. This should include soft furnishings and furniture, plus any existing floor coverings such as carpets, underlay and grippers. Any screws or nails that are protruding from the floorboards will also need to be removed or punched below the surface.

To end up with a really smooth and damage free floor surface, some additional repair work may need to be done. The entire floor will have to be inspected with a fine tooth comb to identify any splits, defects and cracks, which can be repaired and filled with a good quality wood filler. Similar attention can be given to holes left by nails or screws and damage caused by carpet grippers and threshold strips. The wood filler needs to be matched at closely as possible to the colour of the wood.

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.

Of course it isn't only in the town of Shrewsbury itself that you can get floor sanding services but also in Atcham, Harlescott, Battlefield, Annscroft, Kingsland, Montford Bridge, Sweet Lake, Radbrook, Underdale, Ditherington, Frankwell, Upton Magna, Meole Brace, Bicton, Gravelhill, Great Hanwood, Coleham, Uffington, Bicton Heath, Bayston Hill, Cherry Orchard, Sutton, and other Shropshire places.

Maintenance of Wood Floors

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.
