Hiring a professional floor sanding company in Long Sutton should mean that the job will be done correctly and with the minimum amount of mess and dust as possible. If you used your own little hand-held sanding machine you would quickly get dust everywhere throughout your home and it could take some time to clear. When using professional sanding equipment all the wood dust is drawn up by a powerful extraction system, leaving only a flawlessly smooth wooden surface which can then be finished appropriately.

Manufacturers like: Bona, Pallmann, Hummer and Lagler produce professional floor sanding machinery, and most of these can of course be hired out from tool hire businesses around Long Sutton, and elsewhere in Lincolnshire, should you require one. If you're using a professional floor sanding company for your project, you won't need to be worried about that though. It is however worth bearing in mind if you do choose to do your own floors.

Having a room that's totally cleared of furniture and anything else, is preferable when you are doing the floor sanding operation. The sanders are fairly large and has to be swung easily around the room, therefore having stuff in the way isn't ideal. Clear away everything from the room and let the dog see the rabbit, it will make the work run so much more smoothly.

To get the kind of professional finish that you're interested in it will probably be necessary to do a bit more than simply sand down your flooring and give them a layer of varnish. There are bound to be quite a few minor flaws for example nail holes, screw holes, cracks and splits, and there might even be some more serious repairs needed, where chunks of flooring are damaged or missing. These must all be repaired to the highest possible level, caulked with wood filler and then given a final sanding. Any wood filler used should match the colour of the floorboards, test an area before the final filling.

The last step of this process will be sealing and finishing your floorboards. Nowadays not everyone uses sealer on hardwood flooring because the contemporary varnishes are supposed to accomplish the task of sealing and finishing your newly sanded wood surface. Our opinion is that it's far better to give your floor a coat of sealant first, as this brings forth the natural tones of the wood, provides additional protection against staining and scratching, and gives the perfect base for the final coats of varnish. For varnishing use a good quality polyurethane product such as Ronseal Diamond Hard Floor Varnish and give it two or three coats.

There's no doubt that there's a certain degree of disruption, effort and dust involved with refurbishing your floorboards. And you might start to wonder if the advantages are really worth all of that bother. Before beginning such a process, it is generally advisable to go through the pros and cons, to see which comes out on top. Once you have done this, you'll have a clearer picture of what you can achieve by sanding your flooring. The negatives have already been mentioned (disruption, dust and hard work), so let's look at the advantages, or in other words - the benefits.

  • It is Easier to Keep a Polished Floor Clean: Cracked and worn floorboards are inclined to trap more dirt and dust, and when you've sanded down, sealed and polished your floorboards they will be a lot easier to clean and less likely to harbour dust.
  • Makes Your Floor Look Beautiful Once More: With a previously exposed and used hardwood floor it is likely to show some signs of wear in time and the floor sanding and buffing process will bring it back to its former glory.
  • Reduce the Number of Pests in Your Home: Whilst floorboards don't necessarily attract as many unwanted pests as a carpet does, these pests still tend to hide themselves in any accessible splits and cracks that they can find between the floorboards. A sanded and sealed floor will leave the pests with few places to hide.

Different wood species react differently to different stains. White oak, for example, can take a grey stain without showing too much red or yellow. Conversely, red oak, which has a more tightly-grained wood structure, needs a much darker grey stain. Also, make sure that you use a stain controller, which helps the stain absorb into the wood pores uniformly.

Floor staining is not as easy as you might think. There are a few different elements to consider, including the species of wood. You should only stain the wood if it's in good condition and does not have a lot of damage. For instance, a wood floor that has been exposed to water and has a light amber stain isn't likely to need to be stained.
