Making your wood floors look new
Sanding and varnishing floors is hard physical work that brings amazing results in the form of rediscovering the beauty of an old, wooden floor.
Restoring old hardwood floors is worthwhile in any case, the result can simply be amazing. The process includes moving all the furniture out of the room for several hours or even days, noise and odor from the surfaces and coatings, but in any case the outcome is worth it.
Timber floor sanding services and floor finishing are a dusty matter. There is no such thing as dust free sanding and polishing of old floors. The processing time depends on the condition of the old floor, existing finish, how large the area is, the job complexity, how many corners and much hand sanding will be involved. The cost of sanding and polishing depends simply on, how much energy it takes to remove the old coating. It may vary between 20,-/sq meters for brand new floor, up to 45,-/sq meters for heavily stained and warped floor. The repair cost goes usually on the top of sanding chargers.
It depends on the quality of the craftsman’s floor repair services to identify the wood type of the original floor and to replace the correct species.
After perfect sanding and cleaning of the wooden floor, the first coat of finish, a primer is applied. That has the task of closing the pores and surface of the wood, and then usually 2 to 3 coats of protective varnish are applied.
