Our specialist floor sanders who have generations of experience always use machines whether disc or drum with an inbuilt dust extraction, that proves them to be 95% dust efficient. Sanding & Refinishing is the process of using abrasive material to remove the damaged and worn surface of a wooden floor.
The complex sanding process is broken into three stages:
Nails, staples or tacks that protrude above the wooden boards are punched down or removed. Adhesives that may damage the machine are also removed.
- To begin with large sanders and edgers use 40/60 grit papers (depending on the damage to the floor) to flatten the floor, remove the old coating and take out any cupped planks.
- For the second cut a belt sander with 80/100 grit papers (depending on requirement) is used in line with the grain of the timber.
- The next cut is created by 100/120 papers.
