Alex answers the questions he is most often asked about floor sanding and floor renovation, such as “Is dustless floor sanding really dustless?” “How do you prepare your home for floor sanding?” “Can you repair an old floor?” “How do you clean after floor sanding?”
How dusty is floor sanding?
Yes, it really is virtually dust-free. We use commercial-grade dust extraction systems on all our equipment. Take a look at our Floor sanding page for more details.
How do you prepare for floor sanding?
More often than not, a floor can be laid directly without any preparation. However, sometimes existing floorboards need to be flattened with large drum sanders. Concrete floors may need to be leveled with latex screeds, or damp-proofed with liquid damp-proof membranes. Concrete floors are also tested with moisture readers. Factors such as these can be discussed at the initial stage of enquiry.
Can you repair an old wood floor?
Some areas of your existing floorboards may look unsightly compared to the rest of the floor and may need repairing or replacing. With the use of reclaimed pine wood and expert carpentry work, these areas can be brought up to standard, moreover at very little cost.
Can you fill the gaps in my floorboards?
