Thus, when booking our professional floorboard sanding and restoring work, you can expect the following stages of the service:
We start by assessing the floor to determine whether it simply needs a professional cleaning or whether there is damage that sanding and finishing can address. In the latter case. We suggest a plan for action and a cost estimate. Then it’s up to the client to decide whether they want to proceed.
The cleaning procedure includes, sweep or vacuum to remove any debris. If necessary, we clean it with special floor cleaning agents used specifically for the cleaning of wood to remove any grits from the surface. Which is particularly important if we’re going to buff or sand the surface.
Buffing, also known as polishing, gives the floor a delicate light sanding. It’s very useful if you want to gently remove the floor’s top layer and thus, to expose the original finish underneath it. Then we can have better look on the actual condition of the hardwood.
The buffing procedure leaves a layer of fine dust that dulls the floor’s appearance. To revive its beauty and to better assess its condition. We remove that dusty layer. The most effective method to do this is by using a special vacuum cleaner with a suitable, soft attachment that won’t scratch the floor any further.
By reassessing the condition, we can determine what further work we need to do. For example, if we see the finish has suffered damage or discover gaps between the floor boards, we should address them accordingly. Please note that we will keep you updated of the process between the stages.
The actual sanding process is conducted in this stage. If there is a need for filling the gaps our team fix it for you. And the good news is that you do not have to worry about the dust, as we use dustless sanders.
In the case of stains on the finish or on the surface. We proceed with patchy or scratched sanding. If we discover gaps between the floorboards, we explain the repair options to our client and, if warranted, we fill these gaps.
The wood varnish is the last procedure. We would like to make sure that your floor is covered and looking like new for longer period of time. That’s why we add 2 coats of heavy duty varnish. And the great thing about it is, that you can choose the “final look”. For example you can go for anything between “satin” or “high gloss” finish. It is all up to you. With this the floor restoration services will be completed.
