We start the sanding process by making sure your floor is clean and free of any staples, tacks, carpet grippers or unwanted screws and nails. During our initial survey we inspect the boards and floors and it is at this stage that any damaged areas are repaired.
Our large belt sander is 97% dust free, this is used as the first method or sanding your floor. The appropriate coarse sanding grit is initially used to level and clean the floor, after which progressively finer grits are used in order to make your floor as smooth as possible.
We fill any cracks, holes or imperfections before the final sanding grit holes. We use a solvent based filler, which is mixed with the sawdust of your floor in order to keep the colour uniform. It is possible for us to get into awkward corners and around radiator pipes using specialist sanding machinery such as the FEIN sander and the mini edge sander.
Once the floor has been finished with the large belt sander, we cover the whole floor area using a Festool orbital sander. The Festool blends in any marks and deals with any areas of coarseness that may still be on the floor. In the unlikely event that you do not like the colour of the sanded wood, it is at this stage that the floor can be stained. Although it is very hard to get exact matches to existing flooring, we can provide stain samples in an effort to find a product that is a close match.
Oiling a floor is an alternative to lacquering floors and is especially good for hardwood floors. Thick coats of oil are applied, until saturation has been achieved, using the buffing machine.
