Floor Sanding Stroud
Stroud Floor Sanding (GL5): If your property in Stroud 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.
Floor sanding is not for the faint hearted and if you decide to proceed you will need to be prepared for a bit of upheaval. You could control this to some degree if you choose to do it yourself but not many homeowners in Stroud have the expertise or willingness to take on such a project. Local Stroud floor sanding companies will be your likely port of call and if you can't find a suitable on nearby, there are others throughout Gloucestershire who should be able to help.
Your first thought will probably be that this is going to create an awful lot of mess and dust, but that is actually not the case. Your floor sanding company will not be using little hand held sanders such as those you might have used for sanding down a door or some paintwork. They will turn up with some pretty hefty equipment which includes an extraction system that sucks up all the dust as the sanding progresses.
Of course this professional machinery is available for hire throughout Gloucestershire, if not in Stroud 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 Stroud 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.
When the floor has been sanded with a roughish sandpaper, any required repairs can be carried out before the final smooth sanding finish is completed. Missing pieces of floorboard can be replaced, cracking and splits can be repaired and any ugly holes left by screws, nails and other fixings can be carefully caulked with a matching coloured wood filler, to give your floor that professionally finished appearance.
When all this has been completed the floor can be finished to your taste with a hard wearing varnish. However, before this is done it is advisable to give the floor at least one coat of a good quality oil based sealer such as Liberon, which helps to bring out the wood's natural colour, provides a good base for the varnish, and offers added protection against scratches and stains.
Maintenance of Wood Floors
If you love your attractive new floor, you will want to keep it looking like it does right now. In order to do this it will need regular maintenance and care. You can take a few measures to avoid damaging your floor and these include taking off footwear before entering the room, wiping up spillages as soon as they happen, fitting the feet of furniture with felt pads and cleaning the floor regularly with a good quality wood floor cleaner. Keep your eyes open for worn patches because these will need treating before they break through to the bare wood.
