About Floor Sanding Brisbane: Timber preparation and polishing

Preparing the floors before sanding

Newly laid floors require nails to be punched and nail holes plugged with coloured putty. As the edgers sand right up to the wall, it is best that skirting boards are not installed. For existing floors, old nails, adhesive, staples, or carpet underlay are removed or punched down. Repairs are made or boards replaced as needed. Sanding starts when complete preparation is done and normally first cut is done using coarse-grit paper to make floor flat.


Preparation of the work area for your timber floors to be sanded

If building, renovating or decorating, schedule the start date for floor sanding in relation to other trade processes.

  • All building work (carpentry, electrical, plastering, plumbing and glazing) should be complete before sanding work starts.
  • All furniture and all floor coverings to be removed from the rooms.
  • Power must be available.
  • Seal rooms so that dust can’t travel into or out of the finished areas. Fireplaces, air vents, or open windows or doorways to be sealed with paper and masking tape. Cover light fittings and curtains with paper or plastic bags.
  • Strangely enough, ants seem to be attracted to polyurethane. To avoid having ants crawl across and spoil your newly finished floor, get a pest treatment before sanding work starts.
  • As some finishes give off strong fumes or need to harden for a few days before furniture can be replaced, consider it may In many instances arrangements should be made for alternative accommodation, bearing in mind the wet floor areas which cannot be walked on in the likelihood of strong fumes if choosing toxic based coatings.

Timber Floor Sanding Process Begins

For timber floor sanding specialized machines are used to complete the job. Most of the time its either large belt or so called drum sanders, also in hard to reach parts of the house such as corners and stairs special edger is used to get it done properly. Floors are sanded and vacuumed to remove dust and then sealed (so dust from other parts of the house don’t contaminate the freshly applied finish).Floor Sanding In Action

Polishing & Finishing

Floors are stained, if required, and depending on the type of finish you prefer, at least two finish coats are applied and then left to harden for a few days. For your floors you have wide selection of different stains and finishes available. You can choose between water-based, oil-based and solvent-based. Picking right finish product after your floors are sanded is extremely important and we will advise you onsite based on colour, gloss and traffic conditions for the area.
