How to tell when floors require sanding?

As floor sanding specialists for Brisbane Northside, we find we get asked one question a lot: how do I tell if my timber floors need sanding and polishing?

If you’ve recently bought a new house, and have timber floors for the first time, you’d be forgiven for not knowing when it’s time for your floors to get some attention.

As a general guide, we recommend you have your floors polished and sanded every 10-15 years (dependent on wear and tear). This helps to increase the life span of your floors (plus it obviously makes them look amazing). However, if you’ve just moved in, and don’t know when the floors were last treated, the above timeframe won’t help you. Instead you’ll need to look for visual cues.

Some of the signs that your timber floors need sanding and polishing include:

  • When the timber loses its sheen or the sheen/colour is unevenly distributed
  • When the timber has numerous dents and scratches.
  • When the finish is peeling off the timber (this indicates that the floors were incorrectly prepped in the first place and unfortunately it often means re-sanding as well as applying a new finish).
  • When water or another liquid has penetrated the finish itself, or worse the timber (if it’s just a surface stain you should be able to remove it with a wood floor cleaner).

Protect your timber floors to reduce frequency of sanding and polishing

Our top tip for ensuring your timber floors stay looking good for longer is to ensure you hire a professional company to do the work. Make sure you check out their reviews before accepting their quote. We’ve been sanding floors for Brisbane Northside for 10 years and we can always tell when the previous workmanship is shoddy or just plain incompetent.

Beyond hiring experienced professionals, there are a number of really simple things you can do to make your floors go the distance. We recommend you:

  • Lay rugs down in heavy use areas. It’s much easier and cheaper to wash a rug than it is to get scratches and dents out of your floor!
  • Use protective pads on the feet of all pieces of furniture (even small items). Inspect the pads yearly – heavy items can wear down the pads over time and pads can get torn off when pieces of furniture (notably chairs) are moved around.
  • Remove high heeled shoes before walking on timber floors – they are likely to cause dents, especially in softer timbers.
  • If you have pets, make sure you trim their claws regularly. Cat or dog claws are a frequent cause of scratch marks in otherwise flawless timber flooring.
  • Finally – if you don’t already have them – buy doormats for every external door and encourage household members to wipe their shoes before coming in. This is because fine particles of grit, tracked in on shoes, have a sandpaper effect on your wooden floors, eroding the finish.
