Floor sanding

No matter wooden, natural or man made floors and no matter how strong and durable they are. Eventually you will need to sand your floor. Depending on the type of your floor this procedure may be done more often compared to other types of floor.

But there is no reason to worry about, this is standard type of procedure that we have mastered to a very high level.

Before and after our service

How we sand floor:

In order to provide the best result we use special high end equipment. For places like edges and stairs that these sanders cannot reach, we use smaller tools. Since proper floor sanding in Portsmouth involves the use of heavy tools, we proceed with caution and care as not to cause damage.

To prepare floors for sanding, our floor technicians start with examine the current condition of your floor. Then, we proceed with cleaning and adhesives that may exist from previous work are removed so as to not damage the equipment and potentially interfere with the quality of work. Only then we can start with the actual floor sanding procedure  where we remove the top layer of the wood and even out the wood surface. The time it takes our company to perform this process depends on the size of the surface of the floor that the professionals are working on. Once the sanding is complete and the floor is even, we will place a proper durable floor varnish. Thus we will make sure that your floor is protected for longer period of time from scratches and other possible damage.

Throughout the process of sanding, we may find some core damage or poor wood. In this case, our company may take some other action to fix those areas and certainly, floors in these conditions will require a floor expert. We will communicate with you through the process to make sure you are not caught off guard. Once we are done your floor sanding, you will enjoy a new and vibrant space. The new floor will help improve property value, improve lighting, and make you feel better by immersing you in a fresh environment.

Gap filling and floor repair

Unfortunately with time the floor may need gap filling or other type of floor repair. Again depending on the type of your floor we will use the proper gap filling procedure. For example we use dust and resin for fixing the gaps on wooden floor. As for the terrazzo and marble floors the technique and the materials used for fixing are quite different. Please contact us directly and we can advise further regarding the filling of the gaps for your floor.
