Floor Sanding Winkfield
Winkfield Floor Sanding (SL4): The look of your flooring is something which sets your property in Winkfield apart from those of your friends and neighbours. A beautiful looking floor can add value to your home and transform the whole look of any room. The most attractive of all floor surfaces is natural wood, and the truth is that most of us already have a wooden floor, but cover it up with carpets and other artificial materials. Having your existing wooden floor sanded down, sealed and finished is the easy way to get that floor you have always dreamed of.
If you do decide to go ahead and get your wooden floors sanded down you will need to find the right people to do it. A quick search on the internet or in the local Winkfield newspaper will turn up a few possibilities. Alternatively you could try asking family or friends to recommend someone. Doing floor sanding yourself is probably not an option unless you are a really accomplished DIYer, and even then you will have to hire some pretty decent equipment which could still be costly.
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.
Specialist floor sanding machines are not of course exclusive to the professionals, so if you do decide to have a go at sanding your own floors you could always hire the necessary equipment which is readily available somewhere in the Winkfield or Berkshire area. Ask the hire company exactly what you need and they will advise as to the best machines for your project. There are some well known makes of floor sander including Hummer, Bona, Pallmann and Lagler.
Having a room that is completely clear of furniture and anything else is preferable when you are carrying out the floor sanding operation. The sanders are quite large and need to be swung around the room, therefore having stuff in the way is not ideal. Clear everything out of there and let the dog see the rabbit (as they say), it will make the job so much simpler.
To get the sort of professional finish that you are looking for it will almost certainly be necessary to do more than simply sand down your floorboards and give them a coat of varnish. There are bound to be some minor imperfections such as splits, nail holes, screw holes and cracks, and there may even be some larger repairs needed where sections of floorboard are missing or damaged. These should all be repaired to the best possible standard, filled with wood filler and given a final sanding. Any wood filler used should match the colour of the floorboards, test an area before the final filling.
Before the newly sanded wood floor is given its final coats of varnish, it should be sealed with a good quality product like Liberon. While some people think that this is no longer necessary, you are only going to do this process once, so you might as well do it properly. Wood sealer gives the floor that extra bit of protection and helps prevent damage from staining, heat and scratching. It also builds a good base onto which the final varnish can be applied.
Maintenance of Wood Floors
A wood floor needs regular maintenance no matter whether its in an office, a busy pub or the living room of your house. Sweep dust away daily if possible and clean using a patent wood floor cleaner and a microfibre cloth or mop. Remember to use felt pads on the feet of your furniture, take off shoes before walking into the room and immediately wipe away anything that is spilt on the floor, especially anything hot or chemical based. You want to avoid any areas wearing through to the bare wood, which will make it hard to repair, so keep your eyes peeled for this issue.
