The loss of sanding your floors by your own

Floor sanding is a process with three stages: preparation, sanding and coating with a protective layer. Each stage is important by its own, because if one of them is not done properly it can ruin your floor. Usually floors which are suitable for this are between 7 and 10 year old, but of course it depends on how you treat the floor too. You can do floor sanding every ten years, but that depends on how many layers is your wood floor made of too.

Some of them also may need a major or minor repairs. The repairs may include: removing or replacement of damaged boards, fixing any loose floorboards, removing old tracks and rusted nails, protruding nails are hammered and many more.The floor need to be whole and flat. The room need to be prepared too. It needs to be “naked”, removing carpets, electronics, furniture etc. Then you will need to inspect that every detail of the first mentioned have been done properly. Now the actual floor sanding can begin. The second step of the floor sanding include removing the old layer of sealants and its paint. This is done by have machines. If you decide to do this by your own, you will need belt sander, edge sander, finishing sanders, dust extractor, random orbitals and detail sanders so it is better to search for a proper company.

The good brand machines like this are expensive, that’s why I mentioned floor sanding companies are sometime more inexpensive. Also must know fact is that you will need to wear a suitable respirator mask and suit. When the upper lair of your wooden floor is being removed, sometimes you may see unpleasant surprise underneath – worms eaten cores. This problem can affect floor appearance and its value. Also, if the situation is really bad you may need to replace the whole floor. This stage is optional. Staining is another name for painting. If you want to change the colour of your wood, the moment after sanding and before polishing is the time.

Of course, a special paint needs to be used. Sometimes you will need to put some more layers of the paint to get the wanted colour. The last stage from sanding your wooden floor is sealing and you can decide what to use – a  natural oil or hard wax oil or lacquer. This last touch is protecting your floors from stains, weather conditions, furniture, and human harming.
