Floor Sanding Worcester
Worcester Floor Sanding (WR1): The look of your flooring is something which sets your property in Worcester 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.
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 Worcester have the expertise or willingness to take on such a project. Local Worcester floor sanding companies will be your likely port of call and if you can't find a suitable on nearby, there are others throughout Worcestershire who should be able to help.
You may be worried about a lot of dust being generated during the floor sanding process but this should not be the case at all if you decide to call in a professional Worcester floor sanding company. They will use specialist floor sanding machines which include powerful extraction systems, easily sucking up any dust that is produced and storing it until it can be properly disposed of. If you went at it with your own electric sander you will fill the house with dust and get yourself in a terrible mess. The result will also not be as good.
Companies such as: Pallmann, Bona, Hummer and Lagler produce professional floor sanding machinery, and many of these can of course be hired from tool hire businesses around Worcester and elsewhere in Worcestershire, should you need one. If you're using a specialist floor sanding service for the project, you will not need to concern yourself with that though. It is however worth bearing in mind if you do choose to do your own floors.
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.
The next job is to give the sanded floor a generous coat of sealer, Liberon is usually a good choice. This provides a perfect base on which to brush the finishing coats of varnish, and offers some valuable extra protection against a number of issues which could affect your floor in the future. This will be resistant to alcohol, heat and water, and also help prevent scratching, scuffing and staining. Once dry, your floorboards can then be given a quick final sanding with smooth paper and finally 2 or 3 coats of finishing varnish.
Worcester Wood Floor Maintenance
It doesn't matter if a floor is in a living room in your house, in a bustling office or in a busy pub, it still needs to be looked after and given regular maintenance to keep it in good condition and looking attractive. Exactly how much maintenance it needs will depend somewhat on the finish that has been applied to it. Oiled floors can simply be cleaned and given a new coat of oil. Lacquered or varnished floors can be cleaned and given a coat or two of acrylic seal, or bonded and given a new coat of lacquer or varnish. And Hard wax oiled floors can be cleaned, lightly sanded where it is worn and new wax applied.
