CAN I EXPECT CLOUDS OF DUST EVERYWHERE?

Qualified Floor Gap filling, Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding OrpingtonAlthough it was undoubtedly formerly the case that when you had your floorboards sanded down there was no avoiding a lot of dust, times have changed. We use the very latest equipment for wood floor sanding and finishing in Orpington. Our machines have been expressly designed with dust retention in mind, and hardly any sawdust escapes from them. We also use tape to completely seal off other parts of your property and we do a complete clean-up job when we’ve finished, so you can forget all about thick layers of dust everywhere!

 

 

​HOW LONG WILL YOU BE WORKING IN MY HOUSE?

Excellent Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding Orpington	We get in and out as fast as we can, but at the same time we want to do a proper job, so we’ve found a good balance between these two conflicting demands during 20 years of honing our services. ​

 

A normal floor, by which we mean something about the size of a typical suburban living room 
or hallway, will take a day to repair and sand. This allows for anything up to three separate 
sweeps with the machines if the floor is very old and uneven, for example. If the repairs are 
extensive a little more time may need to be factored in. You’ll be fully informed about these 
matters before the work starts, and we’ll explain exactly what’s involved.

 

Another day will be taken up with applying a suitable finish. This will be a compromise between the effect you’re looking for and what we think and advise is most suitable for the floor. A room like a kitchen for example might do best with a good varnish to create a tight seal, a protection against spillages.

 

When we’ve packed up and left, the floor will have to be left well alone for another day or two to allow the finish to cure correctly.

 

 

 

 

WILL YOUR FINISHING PRODUCTS AFFECT MY ASTHMA?

Experts in Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding OrpingtonOur finishing products such as stains, varnishes and lacquers will certainly have an effect on allergy sufferers – by making their lives a whole lot easier! Many allergic reactions are caused by microscopic dust mites, related to spiders and scorpions, which live in carpets and soft furnishing and have a diet of mainly human skin, which forms most of the dust in a room. Remove their carpet-based habitat and breeding ground and you get rid of the problem. Old carpets can also give off formaldehyde fumes, which can seriously aggravate chest complaints such as asthma. You can easily keep your varnished floorboards spotlessly clean with a damp cloth and can use mats and rugs for decoration. These can be conveniently washed as often as you wish and then hung out to dry.​

​​WHAT FINISH DO YOU RECOMMEND?

Experienced team in Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding OrpingtonThere are strengths and weaknesses to every wooden floor, but in general terms there’s not a great deal to choose between the different finishes. This only becomes a real issue in places like museums and restaurants, where we need to use heavy-duty products to counter the higher levels of wear and tear.
 
You just have to remember that your floor will require different levels of maintenance for different types of finish. So, for example, an oiled floor will need to be re-oiled more frequently than a waxed floor needs to be re-waxed, and which you choose will depend largely on personal preference.
