What do you need to know about wood floor sanding/polishing?
There are a few options for who to hire for sanding or polishing a wooden floor. There are several companies that specialise in flooring, interiors and so on that offer floor restoration services, but do not let these put you off from considering individual tradesmen. The most important thing is their work quality, so check to see if your potential hires have customer reviews that you can read, or pictures of floors they have worked on in the past.
Wooden floor sanding is carried out through the following steps: a primer or sealer is applied and left to dry for 2-3 hours, then a coat of varnish is applied and left to dry for 4-6 hours. The surface is then rotary sanded, after which the sawdust is removed and a second coat of water based lacquer is applied. You can then polish the surface by applying a thin coat of polish, letting it dry for 15 minutes and then buffing out.
Remember to check the qualifications and experience of a tradesman before making a hire, and be sure that they are adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities. They should also offer a guarantee in case their work is incorrectly done.
