Sanding and Polishing Timber Floors in Brisbane
Economy Floor Sanding Brisbane is your local timber floor sanding and polishing specialists. We have been servicing south east Queensland for over 20 years. We sand, polish and repair timber floors throughout Brisbane with an emphasis on high quality workmanship. Whether you have timber stairs, a new floor or old timber floors in need of restoration, we handle all wood floor types.
How Do I Prepare To Have My Timber Floors Sanded and Polished?
Prior to the starting day, you will need to arrange to have all your furniture removed from the rooms to be sanded. If built-in cupboards are included, only the exposed timber floors on the base level of the cupboard will need to be cleared out.
For the best result your fridge should be moved out to gain full access to the fridge recess area. It is common to leave the dishwasher in place as it is rarely moved and snuggly built in. On the other hand, if preferred, we can certainly do that for you if you choose to remove it.
Old Floor coverings
A service we offer is the removal and disposal of your old existing floor coverings. If you have chosen to remove your own floor coverings then ensure you ‘Pull out’ any tacks or staples rather than hammering them flat.
In most cases unfortunately, you will not be able to reside in the house during works. The coating process requires the house to be sealed off at the bottom of doors with tape. This is to avoid any trace of air movement during the drying of the coating. At the same time, strong fumes will be present throughout the home.
Cars under your House
If your timber floors are visible over your vehicle parking space, they will need to be removed. In some cases a drip of coating may seep through the floorboards and onto the paintwork.
What we need
We will need the power to be connected at the premises and will need access to the electricity meter box. This is because some larger machines may trip the circuit breaker or fuse during works.
It’s Time To Polish Your Timber Floors
Coating your timber floors
After all the ground sanding work is done, it’s time to protect them via the coating stage. Economy Floor Sanding Brisbane uses a High Solids polyurethane coating which is not only visually appealing, but also has commercial grade durability.
Gloss level guide
The gloss level you choose can impact on both looks and also the amount of cleaning tasks you will need to perform on a daily basis. It would be beneficial to take a few factors into consideration relating to your personal circumstances prior to choosing the right gloss level for your timber floors.
Recoating Worn Polished Timber Floors
Most clients believe their timber floors only need to be re-coated purely to renew the surface look, although that is not entirely true. Although re-coating keeps them looking great, recoating polished timber floors also extends the lifespan of your surface coating.
