Wood Floor Sanding
Professional wooden floor sanding and renovation in Dorset.
With the event of all the recent TV and DIY make over programs, floor sanding is shown as a very quick and simple job. Usually you will see someone with a DIY floor sander walking up and down, and in the next shot the floor is all nice and shiny. Just like that !
In real life, floor sanding is a very skilled and is sometimes a laboriously long job,particularly if trying to remove old black varnish which has been on floorboards for 80 to a 100 years?
Wood blocks, and fine “parquet” need to be treated with a lot of respect, after lasting hundreds of years in some cases, the last thing you need is an amateur DIY person walking up and down with a hire machine with a course paper on it.
In other words please leave it to the experts who know what they are doing, it will be cheaper in the long run, and you will get a professional looking job.
Also its not just the sanding. But what has been on the floor previously, the age of floor and other factors which will also determine the type of seal to be applied. This is another mine field, as there are so many on the market these days, all claiming to be the best for your lovely floor.
