FAQS

Fantastic Floor Sanding Services in Floor Sanding HarlowHave you maybe got one or two outstanding questions concerning floor sanding and finishing in Harlow CM17? If so, this list of the more common ones we’ve encountered may be of help. Give us a ring  if yours isn’t on there and we’ll be delighted to help.

 

I'M SOMETHING OF DIY WEEKEND WARRIOR - WHY NOT DO THIS MYSELF AS WELL?

Professional Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding HarlowAlthough many people do indeed try their hand at floor sanding and finishing you really have to know what you’re doing to get a truly professional finish. Our sanding machines are state-of-the-art, dust-reducing models that we keep perfectly maintained for optimal performance. You can’t always guarantee the quality or state of repair of a hire machine.

Also, applying the appropriate finish is a skilled job, and preparing a wood floor is not something you can tackle on a Sunday afternoon for something to do, like fixing a leaking tap! Leave it to the Harlow floor sanding CM18 and finishing experts for the proper result that will do you proud.

 

 

HOW LONG WILL I BE INCONVENIENCED?

Excellent Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding HarlowWe try to keep the inconvenience to your household or business down to an absolute minimum, of course. In the case of business premises and schools we can work around regular office hours and in school holidays. In all cases, the sanders we use are dust-reducing so the mess is negligible, and we also clear up thoroughly before we leave. We also seal off other parts of the property to keep them isolated and dust-free. 

An average room such as a bathroom, dining room or lounge, or a hallway, will take a day to sand down smoothly, ready to take the finish. This includes any preliminary repairs, and if these are extensive because of the poor state of the floor a little extra time may be needed. After the sanding, it will take another day to apply the finish and this will have to be left to cure properly for another day before you can reintroduce the furniture or walk over the floor again.

 

 

IS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO FILL THE GAPS?
​ 
Experts in Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding HarlowWe all have a responsibility towards the planet, and for businesses like ours that use chemicals this is especially the case. All of our finishes, stains and seals are environmentally friendly and contain no toxins, so your property will not be in any danger of contamination. We also use high-tech equipment especially designed to eliminate dust, and we replace boards and tiles from sustainable sources wherever possible.

More seriously though, gaps cause heat to escape, especially from ground floor rooms, and this can seriously impact on your energy bills as draughts are set up between the floor and air bricks in the outer walls of the property. We use the latest and most effective eco-friendly silicon and resin products in addition to wood slivers for the bigger cracks. Don’t be tempted to use general purpose fillers from your local DIY outlet though, because these will crumble and fall through into the sub-floor space and they’re also easily sucked out by vacuum cleaners.

 

 

 

HAS MY FLOOR JUST HAD ITS DAY?

Floor Sanding & Finishing services by  professionalists in Floor Sanding HarlowYour exposed wooden floorboards, once you’ve taken up the fitted carpet, may well look pretty awful. Covered in old paint and rubbed-in grime, and maybe also patches of black, hardened underlay, it may seem that your wooden flooring is beyond hope.​

Ironically, it’s often the case that the very grime which makes it look so bad is actually protecting the underlying wood! This will have stayed fresh and clean, and when we use our sanding equipment to remove the top layers of wood you’ll be left with a beautifully clean and fresh area of wooden flooring. Once we’ve applied an eco-friendly stain to it you’ll be surprised and delighted with how great it looks.​

 

 

ARE YOUR STAINS BAD FOR ALLERGY SUFFERERS?

Experienced team in Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding Harlow​Quite the opposite! Clean, finished floorboards are infinitely healthier to have in your home or business than carpets, which harbour the dust mites that provoke allergic reactions. You can use attractive rugs on top of your floorboards instead. These are easy to wash thoroughly and hang out to dry.​

Contact us if you have any other questions and to book your free, no-obligation onsite appointment. We have a friendly, expert team of operators who will be delighted to talk with you. ​​
