Our Floor Sanding Process
The floor sanding process consists of sanding the floor using belts and smaller sanding machines which use different grits of sanding belts and discs. Firstly the floor is stripped using the belt sander with the lowest, coarse grit sanding belt. This takes off the top layer of the floor which may contain old lacquer or paint and which also evens out the boards making them the same height. We prefer using sanding belts and discs made by SAIT, we find that this company produces the highest quality sanding products that give great wood sanding results. The sanding process is then repeated using higher sanding grit materials, i.e. 40, 80, 120 grits.
In these stages of the sanding process, the wooden floor becomes smooth and ready for sealing. We use the Lagler edger sander to sand the corners and perimeter of the room, in places where a large belt sander can not reach. The same process is followed using different grits. Even smaller machines are used for hard to get to places and close to skirting. Our belt and edger sanders are dust-free which makes it a much cleaner job at the end. Any residual dust we clean off using a hoover. We can cover fireplaces, and bulky items of furniture with a protective film to protect them from any dust.
Once the floors are smooth, they can be buffed with a buffing machine to even out the whole of the wooden floor area from wall to wall, from corner to corner.
