Here are some of our most asked questions
- How long does it take to sand hardwood floors?
Applying the coating systems and leaving them to dry is a process that could take 2-3 days. Usually, the coating has to stay overnight for it to dry better. However, the period may vary based on the size of the job.
- Will there be plenty of dust during the sanding process?
At Floor Sand North East, we utilize dust-free sanding technology which comprises a powerful extraction unit complete with special wood dust filters in the vacuum that ensure all dust and residue is contained within the machine.
- Can I stay in the house as the floors are being sanded?
Yes, you can, if the finishes are waterborne. Waterborne finishes are eco-friendly and non-toxic. However, we recommend that you stay off the property if any other finishes apart from the aforementioned are applied. This is for safety reasons. But if you’ve nowhere to stay, we can advise on the way forward.
- Is the sanding process noisy?
Yes. The machines can get quite noisy as well as some of the work involved in the preparation stage such as punching in nails. However, if the doors are shut, much of the noise will be contained in the room. We’ll also take into consideration any special requests you may have in regards to this.
- Do I need to clear the room(s) before you begin the sand floor?
Yes. If the room has a carpet, floor covering, electronics, or furniture, we recommend that you remove them before we arrive. You can leave the curtains.

Yes, we can stain the floor with a different colour if that’s your wish. Staining is great because it helps to protect the floor from wear and tear. Get in touch with us to find out about our range of professional stains.
