What is Floor Sanding And Polishing?

Floor Polishing

Polishing is what will give the floor its final finishing and look. There are multiple options available, from Matt to high gloss finishes, that you can choose from based on your preferences and the function of the space.

It is advised to use polishing on the newly sanded floors, but if you have minor scratches on the floor or just the colour of flooring is dull and off, you can choose to polish as a stand-alone service.

Any kind of wood flooring can be polished, Bamboo, Cork, Vinyl, etc. can be polished for a new, shiny look.

Floor Sanding

Sanding Timber Floor means removing a thin coat of the surface with special equipment that uses grits to sand the surface.

This process will remove all the dents and scratches on the surface.

The experience and professionalism of the contractor are very important in sanding. As the lack of expertise can cause irreparable damages to the floor, for example, leaving a hole on the floor.

Some other types of flooring can also be sanded, for example, Bamboo, and Cork floors. If you are not sure whether you can opt for sanding or not, give our experts a call and have a full investigation and expert advice.

Floor Sanding and Polishing Process

Any Sanding and Polishing Floor process has three steps. The first and most important thing is preparation. The nails for installing the floorboards, which are visible on the surface, must be removed. These nails can damage the sanding machines. Old coatings, special adhesives, and any other material or object on the surface are removed, so the sanding machines can work smoothly and safely. Also, we have to get rid of the dust on the surface.

After preparation, the sanding process begins. This step is divided into three or four sub-steps. In each, the roughness of grits used for sanding is changed, to finally achieve a smooth, even, and flat surface.

After sanding all the main areas, corners, and details evenly, it is time to polish the surface using a finishing product. As mentioned before, there are multiple options for the finishing, you can either choose from polyurethane-based coatings or opt for traditional oil-based products or water-based coatings. No matter what the product is, three layers of coating must be applied on the surface, with approximately 24 hours span between each step to let the coating dry.

Floor Sanding and Polishing Cost

There are a lot of factors that affect the final price of Floor Sanding and Polishing Services. The condition of the floor, removal of old coatings, the number of times the floor must be sanded to become leveled and smooth, and the polishing product is chosen for finishing, are just a few. Above all, the size of the floor and its shape is the main factor in pricing our services.
