I DON'T THINK MY MESSY FLOOR CAN BE FIXED, CAN IT?

Affordable Floor Sanding Services in Floor Sanding MitchamWhen you first take up your carpet, which may have been down for decades, you can’t expect your floorboards to look like interior design magazine material! On the other hand, they may look so bad that you seriously doubt whether they can be renovated at all. You don’t need to worry though, because we have the equipment and experience to transform the most awful looking wooden flooring, and we’re used to turning those bad first impressions into fantastic results!​

At the Mitcham floor sanding and finishing team, we’ve found time and again that the dirt, grime and old paint stains that make a wooden floor look so abysmal will often actually be protecting it. All the abuse will be limited to the surface layers of the wood, which will form a hard shell to protect the clean, fresh wood beneath. Once the dirt has been stripped off using our state-of-the-art, dust-limiting machines you won’t recognise your dirty old floor, and the application of the finish will then add that final magic touch.

 

 

​​HOW LONG IS IT GOING TO TAKE?

Professional Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding MitchamTo thoroughly repair, sand and finish an average expanse of wooden flooring such as a lounge or bedroom will take us approximately two days, and you’ll need to allow a further day or two in order for the finish to properly cure the wood. Repairs to a floor which is in a particularly poor condition may take a little longer, but whatever work is needed and whatever timescales are involved, you’ll be informed upfront during the initial free assessment.​

Sanding may require up to three sweeps with our machines, which are specially designed to reduce dust production to practically nil, which will greatly limit the mess. The eco-friendly finish may be a wax, lacquer, varnish, stain or whatever you select under our direction, and applying it professionally to give the effect needed will take one whole day. We’ve seen DIY staining jobs before now and they’re not pretty! So don’t be tempted to try either the sanding or finishing yourself.

 

 

​​CAN I EXPECT AN ALMIGHTY MESS AND LOADS OF DESTRUCTION?

Fantastic Floor Sanding Services in Floor Sanding Mitcham

Sanding floors used to be a messy job, even when we started in the business 20 years ago! Nowadays, we use the very latest machines, designed to retain just about all of the sand dust they generate and leave your home or office free of most of it. Besides, we clean up completely before we go and all other rooms will have been sealed off, so dust shouldn’t be a problem. 
In the case of CR4 Mitcham school floor renovation, we can happily arrange to do the work between terms, in the school holidays, to help reduce disruption to your classes. With business flooring, we can work outside of your regular office hours for the same reason. We promise to keep all disruption to an absolute minimum.

 

 

 

 

​​​​CAN'T I JUST USE A COLOURED VARNISH FROM MY LOCAL DIY OUTLET FOR THE FINISH?

 
Professional Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding MitchamWhen you visit a DIY store you’ll see row after row of floor varnishes offering every effect under the sun, from teak and pine to oak and sycamore. This may seem like the ideal solution – get the
Mitcham floor sanding services in to repair and sand the floor and then varnish it myself to save some money. 

It’s true that the sole advantage of using a coloured varnish from a DIY store is that it will be convenient and save you some time. But the big disadvantage is that as you apply successive coats of the varnish the colour will get significantly darker and the final appearance is anyone’s guess! We expertly apply a coloured stain followed by a varnish to protect both it and the wood. That way, the stain will remain consistent for longer and the colour won’t be affected by wear and tear.
