Wood Floor Sanding

Wood flooring is beautiful and timeless, adding a classic look to any room in your home or office. With the many different species of wood and styles of flooring available, it’s a versatile choice for domestic and commercial spaces. Although wood flooring looks stunning when it’s first laid down, it doesn’t stay that way over time – unless you take proper care of it. Wood floors are known for their durability, but they can suffer from general wear and tear. Periodically they need sanding to remain visually appealing and become easier to sweep and mop.

Frequently Asked Questions

The price of wood floor sanding varies with each project. It depends on the scale and the demands of the job. We will provide a personalised quote after inspecting your room(s) more closely. Our quotes factor in several considerations that affect the cost.

We offer floor sanding for all types of wood flooring, whether it’s hardwood or softwood, and whether you have solid boards, herringbone, parquet, or another pattern. If you need more information about the types of wood floors we sand, you can contact us using the form below. 

Most of the time, wood flooring can be sanded and refinished. When we visit your site and investigate the condition of your floorboards, we’ll also look at the sub-floor structure and offer advice based on our evaluation. We encourage you to look for signs of termites, water damage, dampness, or other evidence of potential damage. 

The frequency of wood floor sanding depends on how much you use your and the general wear and tear the floor sees, such as foot traffic or the presence of pets. We will be able to give you a better assessment once we view the flooring in person and after completion of the sanding work.

The process duration depends on the size of the room and the scale of the job. Obviously, larger rooms tend to take longer. Keep in mind that throughout this process, the area being sanded will need to be completely free of traffic. After an initial consultation, we can offer a more accurate assessment of timing.

The floor finish product you use depends on what the floor is used for. Typically, commercial environments such as restaurants and museums require heavier-duty products than homes, because they see significantly more foot traffic. After speaking with you to get a sense of your personal needs, we’ll be happy to advise you on the best flooring finish for you. 

The area being sanded will need to be clear of all furniture and foot traffic throughout the entire sanding process. 

Most finishing product manufacturers recommend 7-14 days for full curing. During this time, you should not move furniture back into the room and it should be clear of foot traffic. At the end of each job, we always leave you with after-care instructions that include personalised advice so you’ll know exactly what to do to care for your newly sanded wood flooring.
