Sand Your Floorboards

If you would like to completely transform the look and feel of your home, there is no better way to do it than by Sanding Wooden Floors to bring out the natural beauty of the wood.

There are good floor sanding companies in almost every town and city in the country and those offering floor sanding in London will provide the equipment and expertise to get the best out of any wooden surface.

After deciding that sanding an existing floor is the best way to go, the next steps are for the surface to be prepared by hammering in any nails that have worked their way loose over the years and filling in unsightly gaps.  Wide gaps can be filled with thin strips of wood, while narrower cracks between boards are often better left to give an old world effect.  However, they can allow draughts in from beneath, so it is sometimes better to fill them with papier-mâché, overlaid with wood filler.  The repair should be left to harden before sanding.

Wooden floor repair companies use state-of-the-art machines for sanding that have been developed in Scandinavia, where there is a long history of Wood Floor Restoration.  Dustless floor sanding machines were developed there and they have now been imported into the UK by floor sanding and polishing companies serving a recently resurgent market in wood floor repairs. 

Osmo, Junckers, Bona and Blanchon supply the heavy sanding machines that work in an eco friendly manner to create the perfect sanded surface, ready for the application stain and varnish finishing coats.
