The foundation of every indoor space is the floor – whether it’s hardwood, linoleum or tiles, one must always consider the maintenance of his home’s flooring for years to come. Of course, wooden floors are some of the most common in almost any household because of their timeless appeal and reliability. But keeping any wood floor clean is almost impossible, even if you have placed numerous rugs to shield the solid wood underneath. Accidents occur too, scratches and small blemishes are inevitable if you walk with your shoes on at home, or especially if you have a pet. Most homes have wood flooring, because a vast amount of houses and apartment buildings were built back in the day, when hardwood flooring was the main type of flooring, which means that what you are stepping on nowadays is in a desperate need of a floor restoration service.
What is wood floor sanding?
Whether you have hardwood floors, engineered wood flooring, parquet floors, sanding is an essential maintenance process which is meant to preserve the appearance of the floorboards, eliminate any discoloration, remove scratches and repair any surface damagages. By sanding the engineered and hardwood planks or the parquet blocks, the uppermost layer of wood is stripped away and a new fresh and clean layer is now uncovered. Therefore your wood floors are going to look brand new only after a properly performed floor sanding service.
In order to prevent further damage and to upkeep the quality of any wooden floor, you should have consultation with an expert, who will guide you through the basics of wood floor sanding and its benefits.
Most flooring services are best performed by flooring professionals like “Alpha Floor Sanding”, whose clients from Mitcham say that they would always choose this floor sanding company, when in need of any floor renovation services.
Floor sanding steps
Floor sanding services are always coordinated with both the type of wood flooring and the needs of the client. Being aware of all the characteristics your flooring has will help you immensely when cleaning it with any store bought detergent, but when undergoing a floor renovation project, there are so many factors that will contribute to the process of choosing what’s best not only for the type, the size or the pattern of the solid wood planks, but for the environment the restoration services will take place in.
Preparing the floors for sanding
Since there are many different apartment and house layouts, most often not all the furniture pieces can be taken outside the room the flooring professionals are working in, that’s why our flooring company works with a special moving system which helps us work around the furniture.
The 3 stages of floor sanding
Firstly, we get rid of any old varnish by using a more abrasive sand paper, which helps to even out the level of all floorboards.
Then we proceed with the second stage of sanding, which involves using less abrasive sanding paper like P36 and sometimes up to P60. This process eliminates any scratches from the wood.
After that with the help of a belt sander (if needed) all blemishes left from the second stage of sanding are being completely eliminated, making the surface of the wooden floors smooth and scratch-free.
*Keep in mind that these steps are always correlated with the type of flooring, which may sometimes involve different sanding methods and equipment.
Cleaning the floor sanding dust
Now, this is a bit of a catch, because the floor sanding machines we use are actually designed to catch any dust that was caused by the sanding procedure. Most of our rivals still use machinery that causes so much dust that not only your floors, but your walls, too will need cleaning afterwards. Thanks to the productive sanding process conducted by the effective sanding machines, we leave our work space spotless.
