What floors can be sanded?

It's wise to restore the timeless, sleek appearance of your wooden floors for many reasons. Pollen and dust mites do not have a chance to stay long on it, so it is a great option for allergy sufferers. It goes without saying that solid wooden floors easily add value to your property. Types of wood floors that can be sanded:

  • Parquet floor sanding (hardwood floor sanding) - A smooth, even finish is achieved by sanding parquet floors using the right equipment and using specific techniques, so that the intricate floor pattern created by the small wood blocks looks uniform and smooth.
  • Sanding floorboards (pine and oak) - Whether you need oak or pine floor sanding, the job will be handled skillfully with equipment that generates very little dust.
  • Engineered wood floor sanding -Sanding engineered wood flooring can also be challenging due to the risk of damaging the real wood veneer layer. If you lack the necessary skills or equipment, let the professionals handle the sanding.

What is the process for sanding and refinishing hardwood floors?

Sanding removes light imperfections, stains, dirt accumulation, and old sealants. With the help of a special dust extraction machine, microscopic dust particles are practically eliminated from the air to ensure a dust-free environment.

Take a look at the following restoration floor sanding services that can be tailored to your exact type of wooden flooring by taking into account the material's unique properties!

  • Floor sanding preparation - Sanding experts inspect the hardwood floor for any damage, uneven surfaces, or protruding nails before beginning the job. The appropriate sanding technique and equipment are also determined by the type of wood and the existing finish.
  • Wood floor sanding - The floor sanding experts will remove all imperfections and any old layers of varnish with the use of quality equipment with sanding belts of different grits. They are also equipped with edging sanding tools, perfect for corners and stairs sanding, and will even apply finishing sanding touches with a fine-grit sandpaper manually if needed.
  • Wood floor repair and restoration - If your floor needs some repairs, then rest assured that it will be fixed expertly and with high-standard results before the floor sanding job goes ahead. Protruding nails, loose or damaged floorboards will be first addressed.
  • Wood floor gap filling - For an even smoother hardwood floor look, you can benefit from an expert gap filling service, designed to fill the gaps between floorboards with resin or specially cut slivers from reclaimed wood. This way, you’ll prevent dust build-up in the gaps, minimise draft and the loss of heat, as well as reduce creaking noises when you walk over your floor.
  • Wood floor staining- Staining your freshly sanded wooden flooring is an optional step if you wish to change its colour and bring out the wood grain before refinishing the surface with, say, clear varnish. The good news is that your service provider can test different shades of stain on a small area, so you can choose your favourite one more easily.
  • Wood floor finishing/refinishing- Your floor needs to be sealed in some way, after it has been sanded, to prevent scratches, marks and stains. A varnished or waxed floor is also easier to maintain clean, as well as ensures that your investment serves you for longer. So, feel confident that by ordering a specialised sealing and varnishing , or floor waxing, polishing and oiling service.
