Professional Timber Floor Sanding

timber_floor_sanding_perthAfter several years, the timbers of your floorboards lose their polish. In high traffic areas, the coating wears down quickly and can be seriously damaged due to the following factors:

• Dropping things on it

• Walking in high heels or football boots

• Dragging heavy things across it

• Mopping all wrong

• Using wrong floor cleaner

• Water and moisture

• Dirty shoes

• Huge and heavy furniture

• Accidental Spills

• Young children and pets

If this happens, you can't expect to put a coat of varnish on the wood and everything will be ok. You need to get a Perth timber floor sanding professional in with heavy machinery to strip back the remaining parts of the coat, fill in the holes, treat the wood to preserve its ability to repel water and then recoat the area.

Unless you have the right equipment, you risk doing damage to the hardwood. If damaged too severely, you'll have to replace the planks, which is a lot more expensive.

What are the benefits of this service?

The sanding will increase the life of the boards while bringing out their former beauty. A lot of the houses built after World War II have incredible Jarrah. Many people cover it with carpet, which makes us very sad. They have this masterpiece, and they cover it with a cheap rug. If you suspect this could have happened at your place, please call us, and we can check. It is probably restorable, which will significantly enhance the value of your property and enjoyment while living there.

When is the best time to implement floor sanding in Perth?

We're pretty lucky here in Perth that this type of work can be done most of the year-round. We don't have the extreme cold or humidity of other parts of the world. If it's likely to rain while we're working and you have a lot of furniture that has to go outside, that might be a consideration, but that's a relatively rare situation.

Is it ok for my wooden floorboards to be sanded?

This type of floor can usually be sanded and refinished several times before it needs replacing. Most of the time, damage to floors from high heels or dropping heavy objects is repairable, but we'll also let you know if it's gone too far. Make sure you point out any terrible patches, especially if they're under furniture.

How long does this service take in Perth?

Depending on how large the area that needs doing, how much furniture needs moving, how many repairs are required and how "fiddly" the job is, it could take from a day or two up to a week or more. At Allen Brothers Flooring, we pride ourselves on giving accurate estimates upfront and sticking pretty closely to those estimates. If things change, we'll keep you informed.

What machines are used?

There are typically three timber floor sanding machines used:

  • a big belt sander
  • an edger 
  • a buffing machine

Different grits on the sander are used to remove the old coating, to quickly even out the wood, then progressively finer grains to get that smooth finish.

Should you do it yourself?

If you hold the belt sander at the wrong angle or go over an area too much, you can cause irreparable damage. Getting a perfectly smooth surface takes a lot of concentration and skill, which we have developed over decades of doing this.

For something as essential as your floor, we don't think people without the proper training or tools should perform the sanding. Imagine if you sanded an area so thinly that you fell through it?

Is floor sanding expensive in Perth?

The answer to this question depends on a lot of factors like: type of wood, surface area, hours of labour required , use of the floor, and the types of coatings applied. Overall, this type of isn't expensive, especially if you are dealing with experts.

How to identify the best service provider?

Most sanding companies will do a half decent job. However, the best will make repairs virtually invisible, and they will need to take a lot less off the top of the wood to get the same result - this means the flooring can be re-sanded and refinished more times, leading to a lower long term cost.
