Guidelines To Effective Floor Sanding Sydney

Every individual these days has dreams of having wooden flooring in their house. It helps in increasing the aesthetic value of the house and the house owner is equally contented. But maintaining hardwood flooring which implies that this type of wood flooring has solid wood ranging from top to bottom, is a difficult task and there are high chances that you would have to sand it and refinish it at some point of time when you may notice that some boards have come off, or the polish has worn out and the wooden floor bears a pale look. The method in which the top surface of a floor is done away with the help of different types of sandpaper, which has abrasive material attached to its surface, is referred to as floor sanding. You can sand your floor yourself or hire professionals to sand your floor for you. There are various firms for floor sanding Sydney offering their services exclusively for you. Numerous floor sanding Northern Beaches experts can help you in getting flawless flooring that is soothing for the eyes. The steps that needs to be followed while floor sanding are as follows: 1. First and foremost to repair your wooden flooring you need to shift your furniture to another room, remove the floor covering, if any. If anything else is there in the particular room ensure that it is covered with a cloth to prevent it from being covered with layers of dust. 2. Now, let's shift our attention to main part which is the wooden flooring. The damaged blocks of wood needs to be replaced. The blocks of wood generally lie adjacent to each other. The damaged block can be separated simply by using a chisel. 3. If you find that any wooden board has become loose, fix it to its place by drilling in screws such that it is at least 2mm below the wooden surface. Ensure that the screw does not protrude out. 4. Considerable gap between two consecutive wooden boards can make a bad impact on the aesthetic value of the flooring. So as to get over this problem you can cut off a piece of wood as par the size of the gap . Smear the two sides of the wooden block with glue and put in the piece of wood that you have cut. 5. In case you notice that there are raise nails, make sure that they are nailed down methodically using nail punch before you start floor sanding Sydney, across the length and breadth of the wooden flooring. 6. In this step you can start sanding your floor. In case the wooden boards are not that stained, employ medium grade sanding sheets, otherwise you need to use coarse sanding sheets. Keep your floor sander moving across the room slowly and carefully, make sure that you don't stop the machine; otherwise ruts will be formed on the floor. In order to remove very deep stains, you have to crisscross the room in the opposite direction with your floor sander. 7. Employ the round edging sander to sand the edges and corners of your room. 8. After you are done with sanding the entire length and breadth of the floor, clean the floor properly; wipe off the finer dust from the floor. The floor is unsealed at this point of time, so be careful not to break any board. 9. The boards should then be sealed with paint. Make sure to apply two or three coats in the hard wearing areas. Leave the floor to dry overnight. Your wooden floor now wears a brand new look and is ready to be used again.
