The Floor Sanding Process
The floor sanding process is 98% Dust Free. We will arrive around 8.00am in the morning, or a time to suit yourselves. (to be discussed). The floor will be sanded with various grit sizes to achieve a smooth and flat finish. We will fix, fill and repair any boards that need work. We will discuss with you at the time which boards you want to replace or fix. We hold antique boards in stock. We generally start off from a 36 grit, working our way through the different sizes and ending up on a 80/100 grit. All the corners and edges are done with different machines to make sure they are extremely clean. We then use a 4-head flexi orbital sander to achieve the maximum smoothness of the floor. The boards are scrapped in between the joints to clean out dust and dirt which will have accumulated over the years. We then apply a primer coat to seal the floor. We will leave this to cure overnight, but it will be dry within 3 hours so you can walk on in socks. A second coat will be applied which will take about 2 hours to dry. This coat will raise the grain so it will be buffed back with a mesh. A heavy final 3rd coat will be applied to finish the procedure. This will be dry (able to walk on in socks) in about 3 - 4 hours. However, the actual curing of the product takes 3 days, so we recommend not putting any furniture back for at least 3 days and no rugs on the floor for at least 2 weeks. We offer cleaning advice and can supply all the cleaning products you will need to maintain your floor. If looked after correctly there is no reason why the floor should not last at least 5 years before an extra coat need to be applied. We are fully insured and offer a completely professional floor sanding service.
