What types of floors can be sanded?

Floor sanding is limited to wooden flooring due to its soft grain nature. Popular types of wooden flooring today include parquet floors, solid wood and engineered wood. Each type of floor can benefit from sanding to improve it visually. You may choose to sand your wooden floor if it is looking tired and dull, and want to give it a new lease of life. Other reasons may be to sand out damage such as stains or scratches or to prepare it to refinish it and add a new oil or lacquer to transform the look and feel of your home.

What is the floor sanding process? Floor sanding is an intricate process and it is recommended to contract a professional to undertake these services to achieve optimum results, especially if you are looking to sand a large area of flooring. A common objection to floor sanding is the amount of dust which is omitted during the sanding process. A professional will use a dust free sanding tool which will then remove all dust and particles from the area during the sanding process. This has a dual benefit, it leaves the room clean and tidy without huge amounts of dust, but also removing particles from the wood will avoid contamination which can cause damage to your floor in the long term.

To prepare the floor, an expert will remove or hammer down any nails to allow the sander to glide across the floor easily. Floor sanding should then be a three step process. The first is a rough sand which will remove any finish (such as oils) which remain on the floor. This will also start to remove any imperfections. The next is a medium sand will create a smooth floor and remove any remaining imperfections. Finally, a fine sand will then even out the surface and create a consistent texture.

Can I sand a floor myself?

It is highly recommended not to undertake sanding yourself. It can be a difficult job and is easy to create more damage to the floor without proper expertise. Professionals are able to ensure a consistent texture and look and feel, which will leave satisfactory results. For very small areas which require sanding, you may be able to undertake this yourself successfully but for large areas of flooring which are crucial parts of your home or building, commercial-grade equipment and expert knowledge will deliver better results.

How much does floor sanding cost?

Naturally, this depends on the area of floor which requires sanding. For small areas such as hallways and small rooms in a house this can be cost effective, but larger rooms such as in commercial buildings the cost will be higher. An expert will be able to advise on the cost and recommend ways to keep the cost within budget.
