Floor Sanding Truro
Truro Floor Sanding (TR1): If your property in Truro 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.
To have floor sanding done properly it is usually advisable to call in a local Truro floor sanding company who specialise in this sort of work. With a bit of research you will find that there are several in the Truro area and other places in Cornwall. 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 Truro floor sanding company will have all the proper gear.
Hiring a professional floor sanding company in Truro 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.
Obviously is is not just the professionals who have access to the finest floor sanding machines, and you could easily hire the required machinery if you really are determined to tackle the task yourself. Some of the best known makes of sanders include: Hummer, Pallmann, Bona and Lagler. You are going to need a drum sander and an edging sander, plus some associated equipment and rather than going into all the details here you can ask at the hire shop and they will give you what you need.
Although it may not always be necessary, you should really completely clear any rooms that need to be sanded. The sanding machinery is quite bulky and whoever is doing the work will need to have room to swing it around. A clean, clear room is going to make the entire process simpler, so if you can do this so much the better.
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.
