Gorleston Floor Sanding (NR31): The appearance of your flooring is something which sets your property in Gorleston apart from those of your neighbours and friends. An attractive floor can add value to your home and transform the whole look of virtually any room. The most pleasing of all flooring surfaces is natural wood, and the truth is that many of us already have a solid wood floor, but mask it with carpeting and other synthetic products. Having your current wooden floor sanded down, sealed and finished is an easy way to get that stunning floor you have always wanted.
To have floor sanding done properly it's usually better to bring in a local Gorleston floor sanding company who are experts in this sort of task. With a little bit of research you will discover that there are quite a few in the Gorleston area and other places in Norfolk. Although you could have a go at doing your own floor sanding it isn't truly a do-it-yourself kind of job, given that some pretty costly equipment is needed to accomplish it successfully. An experienced Gorleston floor sanding service will come armed with all the right tools.
Employing a professional floor sanding company in Gorleston should mean that the job is done correctly and with as little dust and mess as possible. If you were to use your own hand-held sanding machine you'd quickly get dust all over the house and it could take a while to get rid of. When using professional sanding equipment all of the dust is sucked up by an efficient extraction system, leaving only a perfectly smooth wood surface that can then be finished appropriately.
The most effective floor sanders are made by companies like: Hummer, Lagler, Bona and Pallmann, and most of these are available to hire in places around Norfolk, if you cannot find any in Gorleston itself. Obviously, you'll only need to do this if you do choose to forge ahead with your own floor sanding project, seeing as specialist companies will have their own sanding machinery. Double check with the tool hire company to ascertain exactly what you require and take it from there if you choose this option.
Having a room that's totally cleared of furniture and other paraphernalia, is preferable when you are carrying out the floor sanding operation. The sanders are quite large and has to be manoeuvred around the room, therefore having stuff in the way is not very helpful. Clear away everything from the room and let the dog see the rabbit (as they say), it will make the task run so much more smoothly.
To achieve the kind of professional finish that you are after it will most likely be necessary to do a bit more than just sand down your floorboards and slap on a layer of varnish. There are bound to be quite a few minor imperfections like cracks, splits, screw holes and nail holes, and there could even be some larger repairs required, where sections of floorboard are missing or damaged. These should all be restored to the highest possible level, caulked with wood filler and given a final sanding down. Any wood filler used should match the colour of the floorboards, test an area before the final filling.
The next task is to give the sanded floor a generous coat of sealant, Liberon is usually a good choice. This provides you with the perfect base on which to brush the finishing coats of floor varnish, and gives some added protection against a number of issues which might affect your floor in the future. This will offer resistance to water, heat and alcohol, and also help to stop scuffing, scratching 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.
There's little doubt that there is a certain amount of dust, disruption and effort involved with sanding down your floors. And you might begin to wonder if the rewards are really worth all that bother. Before commencing such a procedure, it's perhaps advisable to run through the positives and negatives, to see which comes out in front.

Since we've already covered the disadvantages (hard work, dust and disruption), now we'll look at a few of the positives.
