Floor Polishing Walton-on-Thames (01932)

Before any sanding actually begins the rooms in question will need to be completely cleared of furniture and furnishings. Carpets and related flooring materials must be taken out, as will any screws and nails that are sticking up from the flooring. The sanding equipment has got to be swung around the room, so it is better without any obstructions in the way.

To achieve a beautifully smooth and damage-free surface, a bit of repair work might have to be carried out. The whole floor should be examined with a fine tooth comb to discover any defects, cracks or splits, which can then be mended and filled with a high quality wood filler. Similar attention can be applied to holes left behind by nails and screws and any damage that has been caused by the removal of threshold strips and carpet grippers. The wood filler needs to be matched at closely as possible to the colour of the wood.

Sealing and varnishing your newly sanded flooring is the last and final part of the process. This is the time when you really notice the changes in your flooring. A coat of an appropriate sealer (for instance Liberon Floor Sealer), will help to accentuate 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.

Seeing as, the first thing you think of when considering the process of refurbishing your flooring is all the disruption, effort and dust, you might start to wonder whether it is really worthwhile. If you are having second thoughts about whether you wish to put your family through so much hassle, it may be advisable to analyze the advantages and drawbacks of the floor sanding procedure. Since we've already touched on the disadvantages (disruption, dust and effort), now we'll have a look at some of the advantages.

  • Discourages Bugs: Even though wooden flooring doesn't necessarily attract as many pests and bugs as a carpet does, these pesky insects still like to hide themselves in any accessible cracks and crevices that they are able to find between the floorboards. A newly sanded and sealed floor will leave the bugs with nowhere to hide.
  • Makes Your Floor Look New Again: With a previously exposed and used timber floor it's more than likely to show a few signs of wear in time and the sanding and buffing process will bring it back to its former glory.
  • Polished Floors Are Easier to Clean: When a wooden floor has been sanded, sealed and polished it is going to be a lot simpler to keep clean as all of the cracks and splits will have been removed or filled and the newly finished surface will not attract so much dirt and dust.

Floor Restoration Walton-on-Thames

Wooden flooring doesn't always have to be sanded down to bring it back to its former glory, and floors can of course be made from materials other than wood. Floors can be made from tiles, granite, wood or concrete, and a reliable Walton-on-Thames floor restoration specialist will have the expertise and knowledge to repair and restore all these surfaces effectively.

Dependant upon the state of the floor, certain processes like decontamination, dehumidification and disinfection, might be needed before any real cosmetic floor restoration work is done. Dampness can quickly soak into cracks and imperfections in the flooring, in cases where there has been a leaky water pipe or washing machine, and problems can soon start to emerge. When water persists in your flooring for any length of time, mould, bacteria and mildew can easily develop. Without causing any harm to the flooring or the residents of the property, skilled floor restorers in Walton-on-Thames will understand exactly how to deal with these problems. Keeping flooring clean and regularly checking washing machines and pipes is an excellent way to reduce the chances of these occurrences happening in the first place.
