Frequently Asked Questions
Is 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?
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?
SHOULD I DO THE DECORATING FIRST?
DO I HAVE TO DO ANYTHING TO KEEP MY NEW FLOOR LOOKING THIS GOOD?
CAN YOU JUST DO THE SANDING AND LEAVE THE REST TO ME?
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.
