It is essential that your chosen company to do the floor restoration is well-informed and experienced enough in terms of the field of wood floor restoration. The restoration process of a wood floor changes from one job to another and the sign of a real professional is definitely a tailored approach.

On the other hand, if you need a good insight into the trade knowledge, here are the information that you need. It will certainly leave you well-informed and best-prepared to achieve the perfectly restored floor in a confident manner.

  • Make sure that the area to be restored is cleared of all of the furniture and anything that could be damaged during the sanding process. This will surely work to speed up the process, allowing us to protect all of the remaining fittings and fixtures.
  • The completion of any repairs needed to the wooden boards is the second step you should take. If you see any loose boards, they have to be fixed down and any protruding nails should be hammered carefully. This way, the head of the nail is low enough not to damage the sanding equipment.
  • Floor sanding is the third step and it’s the most time-consuming task of all. The time taken to complete this job with precision and care will definitely pay dividends with the end result. The best advice to complete such task is to start in the corner of the room and work up and down to make sure that the drum sander is kept moving all the time and working with the grain of the wood.
  • The fourth step that you need to do is to sand using an edger. This is a kind of machinery, which has already built yo a good reputation to be challenging to control. Thus, it’s essential to use it with a side-to-side motion and to sand the perimeter of the room wherein the drum sander couldn’t reach. The procedure of sanding using the drum and the edger sander should be repeated with a finer grit sandpaper until the finish one desired is achieved.
  • Filling any sort of existing holes using latex wood filler is the fifth step here. This actually works to fill any scratches or holes and should be liberally applied.
  • The final step is the finishing. However, with this matter, stains are highly optional. Once wood stains have been chosen, it will need to be completed before the finishing process.

Floor sanding in West and North London

floor sanding North LondonWhile doing floor sanding in London first and foremost step is to clear out the room, or the office or where ever we will carry out the process. Then we have to level the floor, by removing all the old seals. The sander needs to compass and coast over the floor on smooth roundabout movements, softly taking out the exceptionally top layer of the ground surface.

No scratches should be left on the floor and a well skilled worker will do it with no problem. Then we utilize a rotational sander or a cradle with a 100 grit or 120 grit circle to uproot the fine scratches left by the 80 grit sanding belt. The cradle will leave the floor extremely smooth and set up the floor for preparing. Then our experts have to apply a wood deck base prime to set up the wood floor for lacquering. There is no need to worry, TK Flooring Company only uses the best quality materials and products for best result and your peace of mind.
