The Importance of Wood Floor Sanding

Posted on November 17th, 2010 In: Articles, Wood Floor Repairs Articles

Wood floor sanding needs to be done in every building with a wooden floor. This not only improves the look of the room but also makes maintenance easier. A well sanded floor will complement any decor and makes the interiors look luxurious. A well kept floor commands more respect than one that is laminated or carpeted. Whether you have a hardwood or a softwood floor, sanding will help bring out the best.

Why choose a good sander?

Choosing the right sander is very important when it comes to wood floor sanding. A sander who has the newest technology should be chosen. Old sanders use machines that mess up the entire place with dust. The more recent developments in technology have brought machines which collect the duct by suction. This reduces the dust considerably and makes the after-job cleaning much easier. You should also hire the best sander you can afford as there are chances that the sander that doesn’t know what he is doing can damage your floor.

Care after wood floor sanding

After the wood floor sanding, a protective coating can be applied to maintain the same shine. After applying the coat, you need to be careful for a week to help it cure and dry to avoid scratching it. Although you can walk on it barefoot, moving furniture over it should be avoided. Taking care for just a week will ensure that the job done is well preserved and will last a long time.

Things to consider

You should decide what look you wish your floor to have before you contact the agency for wood floor sanding. You can go for the matt, glossy and a few other types of finishes. You can also go with the natural look without any extra finishing. This works out cheaper as well. You will also have an option of filling up the gaps. A nicely done floor is a pleasure to use and to maintain it all you need to do is make sure it remains free of coarse dust and not drag objects with sharp edges on it.
