Sanding your floors is a great way to remove any obvious damage while also initiating a refinishing project. Sanding the floors removes the top layer of stain or sealant on the hardwood and can also buff out any extensive damages in the wood. If you have hardwood floorboards that are rotting or decay on the surface, sanding them down might be a way to salvage them without having to replace the entire board. Other holes, scratches, and extensive damages can also be removed in this way.
Why Sand Your Floors?
If you are wondering why you should sand your floors, there are various reasons as to why you may want to consider it and why it could be beneficial. Sanding your floors is not always the best solution if you have minor damages that can be replaced with buffing or touch-ups since these methods are less invasive. If you are looking to remove the existing stain or finish from your floors, you'd like to refinish them, or completely revitalize their appearance, then sanding will take care of this throughout larger floor surfaces.
Sanding your floors often comes with using industrial machinery that can grind the surface of the hardwood. It is important that a licensed professional operates such machinery to avoid scaling down the surface of the hardwood more than it needs. We offer safe standing solutions and take extra precautions when it comes to sanding hardwood floors to ensure that they can tolerate standing without damage and will benefit from the procedure itself.
Before sanding any hardwood surface, we also take precautionary measures to protect any surrounding surfaces and furniture. Sanding can often cause a lot of dust to be spread throughout the home, so it is our job to ensure that the dust is kept minimal and confined to space where it can easily be cleaned. We can provide tarps to cover important furniture and can give you an estimated schedule of when and how we will be standing particular rooms throughout your home so that you know how to plan and when to expect sanding to take place.
As with all of our professional flooring services, we are also dedicated to ensuring your safety and comfort when it comes to tackling any of the challenges having to do with your floors. This means that if you are prone to allergies and are not keen on sanding your floors, we can also offer dust-free sanding solutions that reduce the amount of dust buildup that is typically generated from standard sanding machines. This method is used as an alternative to reduce the amount of dust available from sanding the floors because it can lead to severe allergies and potential health problems. We want to make your experience with us as comfortable and convenient as possible and if this means using a dust-free sanding technique, then we are more than happy to incorporate it into our work and your flooring project.
