Floor Sanding St Helens
St Helens Floor Sanding (WA11): If you or any of your family suffer from asthma or allergies, one way to help reduce the risk within your property in St Helens is to replace dusty carpets with a clean natural floor surface like wood. If you already have timber floorboards then you will just need to have them sanded down and finished. The result will be a practical, low maintenance and beautiful looking floor.
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 St Helens, 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.
Hiring a professional floor sanding company in St Helens 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.
Of course this professional machinery is available for hire throughout Merseyside, if not in St Helens 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.
Your St Helens floor sanding contractors will probably ask you to clear everything from any rooms that are to be worked on, although they may be prepared to help you with this if you are unable to do it yourself. Chat with them about it beforehand and see what can be worked out. A clear, clean room is essential when carrying out this sort of work, so get all that stuff out of there! Larger heavy items of furniture could possibly be left in there and moved from end to end, but again talk with the company.
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.
Sealing and varnishing your newly sanded floorboards is the last and final part of the process. This is when you really notice the difference in your floor. A coating of an appropriate sealer (for instance Liberon Floor Sealer), will help to bring out the beautiful natural colours of the wood, provide the varnish with a sound base, and at the same time offer some additional protection against various types of damage. Two or three coats of a top quality varnish should then be applied, giving plenty of time for dying between coats.
Wood Floor Maintenance St Helens
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.
