    Floor sanding Specialist

    Floor sanding

    Having your floors sanded is not as simple as using a buffing machine to get out scuffs and scratches. In fact, if you do not know what you are doing, or you do not have the appropriate equipment to do this type of work, you can further damage floors. Wood-grain, linoleum, tile, and other types of flooring, will require professional sanding services at some point in time or another. Not only to remove debris, and the top-layer of grime, but also to level, and even out the grout, and tile surfaces, which wear down over time. So, how much will this cost, and what should you expect with these services?

    Type of flooring

    Floors come in all shapes and sizes. In some rooms, there are tight corners, in others, it is a flat surface which can be sanded in a matter of minutes. Depending on the type of flooring, prices are obviously going to vary; however, on average, a room of about 30 sq. metres in size, will run about £450. This is simply to have the floors sanded, and nothing more. In instances where sanding and gap-filling is required, this price can easily jump to £600-£650, with most professional companies.

    The type of flooring, the materials used, time to complete, and the services which are required in the home or commercial space, will all have an impact on the final price which you are going to pay, when having the floors professionally sanded. In most cases, once finished, you won’t have to sand or polish the floors, for several years at a time. This is why it is so important to hire the top licensed professionals to do the job.

    Types of sanding

    Again, for a room of about 30 sq. metres, you can expect to pay about £450 for sanding; with the included gap-filling, this jumps to about £600. However, there are additional services which can be performed by professional companies which do floor sanding services. For example, with sanding and a laquer sealant finish, for the same 30 sq. metre space, with one coat of laquer, you will pay about £525-£550. With two-coats, the price will run about £600. With gap-filling included, prices will run £675 (single coat) and £750 (two-coats) respectively.

    With additional sealing, sanding, staining, and chip repair, you can expect costs to exceed £1000 in many cases. So, as is the case with other professional services, when having your floors sanded, the size of the space, and additional services which you choose to have performed, are all going to have an impact on the final price which you are going to pay when hiring a professional service provider.

    Do I have to seal/laquer?

    Technically, the answer is no. However, it will make a huge difference if you choose to have this work done when sanding the floors. Not only are they going to look better, they will shine. And, this shine will last for several months at a time. But, with the additional protective coating, your floors are also less likely to get damaged or worn down over time. By simply applying one coat, you can expect your floors to retain their shape, for a minimum of 6-8 months. And, the additional protective layer which is applied above the floors (the wax coating), is going to prevent penetration, sediment, and other dirt and debris from getting stuck in the floors or the grout, so the floors not only look cleaner, but aren’t as likely to get damaged as easily either.

    Compare before you hire

    As is the case with any type of service you have to hire a licensed sanding company. Not only to ensure they use the best, latest, state of the art equipment, but also to ensure they have the best sealants and wax-based laquers for your floors. Further, when you hire the top service providers, they will usually guarantee the work for a period of time. If you are ready to have your floors professionally sanded, simply visit the link below.
