FAQS

Affordable Floor Sanding Services in Floor Sanding WickfordIs this just a wild guess or do you have more than a few outstanding questions regarding the whole process of wood floor sanding and finishing in Wickford SS12? Here we’ve gathered together just a few of the ones we’re commonly asked, but drop us a line if yours are not amongst them and we’ll be happy to help you. 

 

HOW LONG MAY I EXPECT TO BE OUT OF ACTION?

Professional Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding WickfordWe always try to create as little disruption as possible whilst also doing a thorough and professional job. We use the latest models of sanding machines, which are designed to severely reduce dust released into the atmosphere. They collect it in sacks attached to the machine’s body. It’s also worth mentioning that only a small amount of dust is actually created because the rollers can be finely adjusted to take off only the necessary layers of dirty wood. This is all in line with our green policy for not contributing to environmental pollution.

Because we seal off other parts of the property as we proceed and also clean up afterwards your room will be out of action for only the length of time it takes us to do the work. This will mean a day for repairs and sanding and another day for coating on the eco-friendly finish. After that, the floor will need to be left undisturbed for two to three days for the finish to thoroughly cure.

 

I'M IN CHARGE OF SCHOOL MAINTENANCE. CAN YOU DO THIS OUTSIDE TERM TIME?

Fantastic Floor Sanding Services in Floor Sanding WickfordWe can carry out all the work during school holidays when we’re working on school flooring, and in the case of businesses we’ll arrange to do it outside of normal office hours. 

 

SHOULD I DO THE DECORATING FIRST?

Professional Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding WickfordIf you are intending to have the room decorated you should do this first. This is especially important if you are having any plumbing altered or rewiring work carried out. Our sanding machines may cause some small amount of scuffing around your skirting boards, but this will be easy to put right with a bit of touching up after we’ve gone. It’s better to not risk damaging the floor after we’ve beautifully finished it off for you.

 

DO I HAVE TO DO ANYTHING TO KEEP MY NEW FLOOR LOOKING THIS GOOD?

Qualified Floor Gap filling, Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding WickfordWe’ll give you a free cleaning kit to look after your floor before we leave. But we also suggest that you deploy a few good mats strategically in front of doorways where the flooring is in a hallway or reception area and that you take outdoor footwear off before entering the property. We also recommend that you have the Wickford floor sanding and maintenance experts give your flooring a good buff and polish every few years. Contact us  and we’ll help you with advice on all floor maintenance matters.

 

CAN YOU JUST DO THE SANDING AND LEAVE THE REST TO ME?

Excellent Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding WickfordSanding is indeed the most physically demanding part of the wood floor renovation process. However, there are other important tasks that need to be done expertly if you want your new floor to have that thoroughly professional finish.

The preliminary repairs are most important because they make the floor stable and sealed, providing a smooth, level and solid surface for the sanding machines to work on. The gaps need to be filled as a part of this process, but not with the all-purpose wood fillers you commonly find in DIY shops. We use silicon and resin compounds that set like rock and won’t crumble later on. 

Applying a finish such as a stain properly is also a job best left to the experts. We’ve seen too many floors that have been stained in an amateur way and they just have to be sanded down again and the stain re-applied properly, so it’s really not worth that waste of time.

 

 

 

WHAT ABOUT MY ALLERGY?

Experts in Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding WickfordA sanded and finished natural wood floor is the best thing you can have for an allergic condition. The dust mites that exacerbate allergies live in soft furnishings and by getting rid of carpets you’ll be expelling them from your home or business. Wood flooring is ridiculously easy to keep clean with a damp cloth, and you can easily use colourful rugs for décor.​
