How to Sand Wooden Floors

By woodfloo On January 15, 2018 No Comments

When looking for tips on floor sanding services there is often a range of detailed and complicated information. The likelihood is that you will be left so confused that you will be put off the process. There is absolutely no reason as to why this should happen.

There is a lot of information available. However, it is our responsibility to make sure that you are made aware of the details you need and that you are not bothered with all of the rest. This is how we have built up our reputation. We offer an exceptional service, providing brilliant finishes accompanied with details that benefit our clients.

Floor Sander LincolnWe compiled a 10 Step Process to restoring wooden floors;

  • Step 1 – we make sure all nails are tapped down. We remove any loose grit and remove door strips
  • Step 2 – to check there are no loose boards and secure where necessary
  • Step 3 – we start the sanding process with our dust free belt sander. If the floor is uneven we will start at a forty-five degree angle straightening up till we are happy the floor is even and any indentations are removed. We will then go along the boards going up through 4 or 5 different grits off sand paper until we are happy with the finish
  • Step 4 – an edger is then used to reach the bits that could not be reached with the belt sander until we are happy of a good finish along the edges
  • Step 5 – all corners are scraped or sanded
  • Step 6 – an orbiter sander is then used on the edges to achieve the best finish possible
  • Step 7 – a rotary machine is then used with a multi hole pad to achieve the smoothest finish possible
  • Step 8 – a primer is applied. Once dried, the first coat of finish is applied and left to dry until the next day
  • Step 9 – a rotary is then used to flat back the floor and create a good surface for the last 2 coats
  • Step 10 – the last two coats of finish are applied

Floor Sanding Services

By woodfloo On December 15, 2017 No Comments

Wood floors are a really attractive floor covering. So many homes and business elect to have this as their chosen floor type. Why is this? They are warmer underfoot than stone tiles and they can weather better than carpet. There is an additional benefit that wooden flooring can also be sanded when it comes to the time that it starts to look dull.

Floor Sander YorkshireIt may also be the case that your wood floor has been damaged. Scratches and scuffs look really unsightly. We have devised comprehensive floor sanding services that provide a fast and efficient provision to breathe new life into your wood floors.

Floor Sanding Process

Once we have completed the survey on your flooring and arrange a date for the work to start we will discuss any preparation that is required.

We always ask that smaller items in the room are removed prior to our arrival. We realise that it can sometimes be more challenging to move larger items like sideboards and suites, so we will always help where possible. All boards are checked to ensure that they are fixed appropriately, and any possible protruding nails are dealt with.

This preparation allows us to be efficient with our time. The room is then prepared fully. This may mean that kickboards are removed (if restoring a kitchen floor) or that fireplace surrounds are protected with sheeting. Each job is approached in an individual manner to ensure that the surroundings are kept safe during the floor sanding process.

Our industrial sanding machinery provides a brilliant finish and is dust free. Our range of machinery works to remove the top layers of the damaged wooden boards. Once removed, a fresh surface is revealed. This surface is then treated with highest-grade wood floor products.

Have you got questions about the products that we use and how you are best to select the right wood finish for you? Call today on 0845 4599941 to find out more and to arrange your free survey.

Your Ultimate Wood Floor Cheat Sheet

It is possible that we are biased considering our passion for wooden floors and restoring them to like-new. However, it is arguable that this flooring type is one of the most popular because of its ability to fit seamlessly with any décor.

Why Choose A Wooden Floor?

The reasons as to why you would select a wooden floor include:

  • wood floor sanding bradfordWood floors are multifunctional
  • Wooden floors can be laid in many different rooms
  • They can withstand high foot traffic
  • They require low maintenance
  • They can look better with age
  • They can be restored if required

Once a wood floor is laid it will start to experience daily wear and tear. This is unavoidable but should not be seen as daunting. There are ways in which you can reduce the risk of wear or even damage to your newly-laid floor.

Keep Your Wood Floors Safe

There are different ways in which you can keep your wood floors safe from damage. Here are some of our top tips:

Place matting outside and inside of every external doorway. Particles that would otherwise enter your property will be gathered on the matting. Having two mats will ensure maximum removal of larger and smaller particles.

Make sure to sweep daily. This will reduce the build-up of particles on the surface. If these particles are left they will be carried around on people’s feet and will work to further deteriorate your floor. This is a process that won’t take long but will provide maximum benefit to ensure the longevity of your floor.

Cleaning Wood Floors

Commercial Floor Sander LeedsWhen you are attempted to clean your wood floor it is important that you have the correct tools, products and techniques. It may be that you are looking to clean a specific mark or you are cleaning the floors surface.

Make sure that the products you use are floor-type specific and won’t damage the finish. Do not scrub the surface with anything abrasive and make sure to use as little water as possible. Any water left on the surface will likely leave a stain or mark that is exceptionally difficult to remove.
