Wood Floor Sanding

Coventry Wood Floor Sanders

Everyone wants their home or property to be in the best condition possible. To achieve this, it is necessary to identify any damage we see in the house and proceed to fix it before the problem gets bigger. In this day and age, we are used to just replacing whatever gets damaged for a new model without realising that fixing is, most times, a better solution.

This applies not just to appliances but also to one of the main parts of our property: the flooring. Whether your hardwood floor is stained, full of scratches, with water damaged, displaying uneven surfaces, or any other you can imagine…don’t worry, it can be repaired and restored. At Coventry Floor Sanding we know how to bring back the shining look of your floor and make it not only look healthier and more beautiful but also extend its life for years to come.

Wood Floor Care Services

Floor sanding is known as the process of removing the top surface of a wooden floor to remove stains, scratches and multiple other visible signs of wear, and this way, preparing the surface up for a new finish. Wood floor sanding involves three stages: preparation, sanding, and coating.

Before we begin the sanding and restoration of your flooring, we must make sure the floor is thoroughly cleaned. We need to clean the whole floor, sweep, vacuum, and make sure all nails are punched under. 

The grit sequence we choose is vital for achieving a beautiful, smooth and even finish. This is even more important when we are restoring a hardwood floor. It is usually recommended to start with a rougher. Our initial goal is to eliminate all stock and finish, and for this we need to start with a rougher abrasive. After that, we continue with finer grits that clear away any sanding marks until we achieve a smooth finish. Picking the right grit sequence is essential to avoid compromising the quality of the finished job.

Professional vs. DIY Floor Sanding

Is it possible to DIY floor sanding? Of course you can do it yourself, but you need to keep in mind that, different to other kinds of home projects, sanding and restoring your floor involves tools and techniques that are not that easy to obtain.

First, you will need to hire a heavy duty sander which you can rent for a fee. You will need to make sure you have the right equipment, as there is a large number of sanders in the market, and choosing the wrong one can create more harm than benefit. You will probably also want to hire an edge sander which allows you to make the quality of your sanding consistent around the entire room.

Next, you will have to choose the sandpaper for your grit sequence. There is a large range of grades available, and as we mentioned before, the grit sequence is of vital importance, so you will have to investigate and be careful with what you choose.

Health and safety will be very important as there will be plenty of dust in the air. You will require glasses, gloves, face masks, and even ear protectors to protect yourself. 

Probably the most important part is the technique. Floor sanding is not just about moving the sander around across the whole room. The most appropriate technique is to move the machine forwards when sanding a wood floor and not using a backwards movement. You also need to go from left to right to suit the natural grain of the wood. If you get the technique part wrong, you risk ending up with an uneven floor or weird looking surface, or even worse…you could end up damaging your wood floor beyond repair.
