What you need to know about floor sanding?
It has been a trend to restore the same wood flooring using sanding methods. There is a comfort and visual appeal added to this, and these reasons are enough to opt for such floors. When hiring a company for floor sanding you have to keep in mind that you are laying the foundation that should be perfect.
What is Floor Sanding?
It is the process of removing the top surfaces of a wooden floor with a method called sanding using rough materials. A variety of floor types can be sanded, including cork, particleboard, timber, and more. This method is also used to take out the new wood from an old wooden floor. There are usually three stages in this process: Preparation, sanding and coating using a protective sealant.
Beautifully polished ground can add value to your home and breathe new life. The process can strip an old finish and create a completely fresh, smooth surface in a matter of two or three hours depending on total space. As far as equipments are concerned, almost all jobs are done with specialized sanding machines like large belt and drums. For hard-to-reach areas such as stairs and corners, an edger is used to complete the task.
What’s the process?
The professionals remove all the mats, furniture and other stuff to make the place empty before starting with their work. They will also check whether there are any loose planks in the floor so that they can tighten them before getting started. They will also remove all the sharp objects to give their work perfection.
The experts will determine the grit sequence and sand all the main areas using a drum sander. If you’re doing it for two floors, they will first complete their work on the upper level and then downstairs. They will use edger to reach those difficult corners and edges or the areas where the drum could not reach.
Every time they finish a grit they need to vacuum or sweep the surface. Once they have vacuumed, they will start again with the drum and use the edger. They will examine perimeter of all rooms and remove any edger churn by hand-sanding. A pole sander is used over the entire area to blend the straight sanding cut. A vacuum is used to clean the surface and get a smooth look and feel.
If the floor sanding is correctly done, even an old place can be transformed into an impressive one.
