Floor Sanding Process
9-Steps Floor Sanding Process
PREPARATION OF THE FLOOR BEFORE SANDING
We will inspect the floor to ensure all nails are well below the wood surface. All loose boards will be secured before sanding commences.
Removal of dry soil particles that might cause damage to the floor during the sanding process.
SANDING OF THE MAIN FLOOR AREA
We use state-of-the-art belt sanding machines with different grit abrasives to ensure a smooth quality finish. The system we use is 99.9% dust free as it incorporates an advanced extraction system
EDGES AND DETAILED SANDING
Our edging sander delivers a uniform finished to all edges and hard-to-reach places under fixed furniture and radiators.
FINAL FINISHING: ROTARY SANDING
A super fine grit sanding system will deliver a superior and even finish to the whole floor area. This is done by means of a rotary sander.
FINE DUST REMOVAL
Highly efficient vacuum system is used for the thorough removal of any dust particles from the freshly sanded wooden floor.
OIL OR LACQUER FINISH
(Choose option A or B)
A- OIL FINISH:
Two applications of hard wax oil on your wooden floor will deliver a beautiful natural finish that is moisture and dirt resistant.
Please be aware that it will take up to 2 hours for the floor to cure enough to allow light foot traffic. Furniture should only be moved back about 24 hours after foot traffic has commenced. (Avoid, at all cost, dragging furniture on a freshly treated floor surface.)
B- LACQUERED FINISH:
Application of a Primer to the sanded floor followed by 2 coats of water based lacquer.
Once the first coat has cured, the floor will be prepared for a further 2 coats of lacquer. Please be aware that it may take up to 4 hours for the floor to cure enough to allow light foot traffic. Furniture should only be moved back about 24 hours after foot traffic has commenced. (Avoid, at all cost, dragging furniture on a freshly treated floor surface.)
