Staines Floor Finishing and Restoration

Staines Floor Sanding (TW18): If you've got wooden floorboards in your home in Staines, you may be considering getting them professionally sanded down and used as the primary floor surface, therefore replacing your current carpeting with a beautiful and durable floor, free of dust, allergens and mites. This can be carried out with both hard and softwood floorboards and it can even boost the value of your property.

Though floor sanding is not a process that's impossible for you to undertake yourself, you will have to be able to get access to the appropriate gear and have confidence in the use of it. If you feel you're able to, then by all means have a go, but you may be better to get in contact with a local floor sanding company in Staines, who'll arrive fully geared up to do the job properly. Where possible you should get recommendations from people that you know who've had floor sanding carried out in the past.

The type of hand-held orbital sander that you most likely have in your home tool kit isn't the proper choice for a project of this size, and you could easily get yourself in a right pickle if you attempt to tackle this task with something like this. Any good floor sanding company in Staines will not even think about employing tools like this for such a task and will have specialist floor sanding machinery that makes short work of the process without too much dust or mess.

Companies such as: Bona, Lagler, Hummer and Pallmann produce professional floor sanding systems, and most of these can obviously be hired from tool hire businesses around Staines, and elsewhere in Surrey, if you require one. If you're using a specialist floor sanding company for your venture, you'll not need to be worried about that though. It is however worth bearing in mind if you do choose to do your own floors.

While it might not always be necessary, you should really completely clear any of your rooms that have to be sanded. The floor sanding equipment is fairly bulky and whoever is doing the work needs to have enough room to manoeuvre it around. A clean, clear room is going to make the entire process simpler, so if you're able to do this, the better it will be.

Once the floor has been sanded with a roughish glasspaper, any required repairs can be conducted before the final fine sanding finish is implemented. Missing sections of floorboard can be replaced, cracks and splits can be mended and any unsightly holes left by screws, nails and other fixings can be meticulously caulked with a matching coloured wood filler, to give your floor a professionally finished look.

The sealing and varnishing of your freshly sanded floorboards is the last and final step in the procedure. This is when you can really start to see the changes in your flooring. A coating of an appropriate sealer (for example Liberon Floor Sealer), will help to bring out the beautiful natural tones of the wood, provide a sound base for the varnish, and offer some additional protection against potential damage. Two or three coats of a top quality varnish should then be applied, giving plenty of time for dying between coats.

When you're looking at the process of sanding down your wooden floorboards, you may begin to ask yourself whether it is actually worth all the disruption, hard work and dust. Before starting such a process, it's perhaps a wise idea to run through the benefits and drawbacks, to see which comes out on top. Once you have done this, you'll certainly have a clearer understanding of what you can hope to achieve by sanding your wooden floors. Since we've already covered the negatives (disruption, dust and hard work), now we'll have a look at a few of the pros.

  • Restores the Look of a Worn Floor: If your existing timber floor is becoming worn and tired, a really good sanding and finishing will surely make it seem like new once again.
  • It is Easier to Keep a Polished Floor Clean: When wooden flooring has been sanded down, sealed and polished it is going to be much easier to keep clean in the future as all of the cracks and splits will have been repaired or filled and the freshly finished surface will not attract as much dust and dirt.
  • Reduces the Number of Bugs and Pests: Whilst wooden flooring doesn't necessarily harbour as many bugs and pests as a carpet, these pesky insects still like to hide away in any accessible crevices and splits that they can find between the floorboards. A newly sanded and sealed floor will leave the pests with nowhere to hide.

When floor staining, you need to be careful not to apply too much stain. Traditional resin-based stains should be applied in thin coats. Use a stain conditioner to even out the application. It's also a good idea to test a sample panel or rag before applying the stain.

Floor Staining Staines

After applying the stain, you must allow it to dry completely. This can take a full 72 hours, depending on the temperature and humidity. If the temperature is not consistent, or the humidity is too high, the stain may not dry as quickly as expected. It may even need a week before the final coat is applied.

Different wood species react to different stains differently. White oak, for example, can take a grey stain without showing too much red or yellow. Conversely, red oak, which has a more tightly-grained wood structure, requires a much darker grey stain. Also, make sure that you use a stain controller, which helps the stain absorb into the wood pores evenly.

If the floor is made of rare or exotic wood, you may not need to stain it. These types of wood already look stunning in their natural colours. Many home owners in Staines choose to stain these floors to imitate the look of these floors. However, it is best to consider whether you really need to stain the floor or not.

Floor staining is not as easy as you may think. There are a few different factors to consider, including the type of wood. You should only stain the wood if it is in good condition and does not have a lot of damage. For example, a wood floor that has been exposed to water and has a light amber stain is not likely to need to be stained. If you have any doubts about the process, you should seek professional assistance - a floor sanding specialist in Staines will have all the necessary experience.
