Today, we would like to go into detail what to expect when you hire us for wood floor sanding in Rocklandcounty NY.
Before you have workers from Precision Hardwood Floors come into your home, we highly recommend having everything from the room you will have sanded removed. After emptying, make sure you clean the floor thoroughly (a vacuum cleaner will do). Once you have taken everything out of the room and cleaned you are all set but if you couldn’t move everything out, don’t worry, you have the option of sanding the floor in two halves if you cannot move some of the larger furniture pieces out of the room.
The Sanding Process
|Wood Floor Sanding in Rockland County, NY|
Drum sander is a machine that sands your floor. While many people opt to use ones they can find in hardware stores, and do the job themselves, they don’t realize conventional sanders blow dust everywhere. This may not seem like a big deal but it can take hours to thoroughly clean out the dust and the dust in the air will be harmful for those with sensitive immune systems and asthma.
Our sanders, are not conventional sanders. We have advanced drum sanders with special hoses and filters so that dust does not go flying everywhere. This saves everyone time when cleaning and potential breathing problems.
Many times our experts will walk with the sander backwards to get some stubborn areas of the floor sanded. This is common technique and not considered unprofessional. This allows the sandpaper to really cut into the board and get at the stubborn varnish they could not get to earlier.
We will start by removing all the dirt on the floor with a coarse paper and then sand with a finer paper. After using the coarse paper, the floor will look pretty clean, but the work is not finished here. The coarse paper can eat into the floorboards and leave the floor surface really rough. Using finer paper afterwards gives the floor a really smooth and new look. Also, while using a drum sander, our workers will be mindful of the sand paper and change it regularly. The more often the sand paper is changed, the more effectively we will be able to sand the floor.
Experiment and change the look of your floor
After you have the floor sanded, you can experiment with colors and make your floor look as good as new. Giving it color is extremely easy as we have many color varnishes available. You have to varnish your floor anyway after sanding it, this way you also give it color at the same time. At Precision Hardwood Floors we always stain the floor before we varnish it as a standard part of the process. You can have it glossed up if you want, but avoid it if your floor is old as scratches and marks are less visible on non-shiny surfaces.
