FAQS

Floor Sanding & Finishing services by  professionalists in Floor Sanding RomfordHave you got questions about wood floor sanding and restoration in Romford RM1? Not to worry, we’ve been asked them all in our time! Here are some of the more representative ones. This should help to clear up any misunderstandings about what’s involved. Give us a call if you need any more information and our advisors will be delighted to assist. ​

 

SHOULD I LEAVE THE DECORATING FOR LATER?

Experienced team in Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding RomfordOur advice is that you should do any decorating before we come, especially if it involves altering wiring and plumbing. The only damage we’ll cause, if any, will be a bit of scuffing to your skirting boards, which will be easy to touch up after we leave. 

 

CAN'T WE JUST IGNORE THE GAPS BETWEEN THE FLOORBOARDS?

Gap filling & Finishing services provided by trained experts in Floor Sanding RomfordWe always recommend that you have the gaps between your floorboards filled in, for a number of reasons. The floor needs to be made stable before the sanding can be done effectively. When your floorboards are hidden under carpets this is not so important, but when you have a bare floor you’ll soon notice the difference when heat starts draining out and the separate boards creak and groan! 

 

CAN I DO THE SANDING MYSELF WITH A HIRED MACHINE?

Fantastic Floor Sanding Services in Floor Sanding RomfordWe don’t take our corporate responsibility for the welfare of the planet lightly. All of our various finishing products are environmentally friendly. They contain no traces of toxins or any substances that can affect conditions such as allergies. Your home or business will in fact be a far healthier environment in which to live or work by the time we’ve finished with it.

 

Our machines are the very latest, dust-free models and we always keep them maintained in peak condition. That way, the dust is limited to virtually nil and we get a beautifully smooth floor every time.

 
MY WOODEN FLOORING LOOKS REALLY FOUL - CAN IT BE RESTORED AT ALL?

Professional Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding RomfordWe have found during the course of 20 years of wood floor repairing and sanding in Romford that just about every wooden floor in the area can be restored. Don’t go by initial appearances and assume that just because your boards look terrible when you lift the carpet the wood must be beyond redemption. 

 

The ground-in filthy and messy looking stains from old paint may actually be doing the boards a service by protecting them from further harm. When we use our equipment to strip off the surface grime the wood underneath is usually as good as new and ready to be finished.

 

CAN I HAVE ANY FINISH I WANT?

Excellent Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding RomfordWe have a wide range of eco-friendly finishes such as wax, lacquer, stains and varnishes which we use for a variety of effects according to personal taste and the type of wood we’re dealing with. We’ll listen to what you want and also take into account the surroundings of the flooring and the sort of traffic it has to support. 

 

For example, in a kitchen or out-house the floor might be expected to experience some level of accidental spillage, so it makes sense to choose something like a varnish, which will provide a good surface seal for the wood. In a reception area you’ll probably find that oiling is a good idea because it will penetrate into the wood’s heart and create a beautiful, warm glow.

 

Also remember that different finishes will entail different types of maintenance to keep the floor looking good for as long as possible. With oils, for instance, you’ll need to re-oil quite regularly, but you’ll also be able to carry out localised repairs when patches start to appear. Local repairs are not possible with a wax or varnish finish, although re-application of the finish can be less frequent than it is with oil. 

 

WILL YOUR PRODUCTS EXACERBATE MY ALLERGY?

Experts in Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding RomfordThe exact opposite is true. By renovating your wooden flooring and getting rid of carpets you’ll remove the natural habitat of dust mites, which are responsible for most allergic reactions in a home. These microscopic monsters feed on shed human skin scales, which are the main constituents of domestic dust. Use attractive floor rugs instead, which can be washed easily and dried to kill any mites that might be trying to take up residence again!
