Floor Sanding and Polishing

When floor sanding and polishing are necessary, people often wonder about the value of homeowners’ insurance. The first time you have to file a claim for something (as with anything else), it is always important to find out what you have been paying for. Did you know that floor sanding and polishing prices can vary quite a bit depending on the condition of your floors?

Floor sanding usually costs more per m2 than carpet cleaning and can begin at as much as 25 per cent of the floor’s total cost. In other words, it can go from very inexpensive to ridiculously expensive, depending upon the condition of your timber floors. As mentioned earlier, the variable factors will all add up. As such, it is advisable to ask questions of your professional installer or floor sanding contractor, as they can provide some really valuable information. After all, they have likely seen worse than you can imagine, so they likely have a good idea of how much to expect when performing their job.

As with most things, it is a good idea to fully understand the difference between “finished floor sanding” and “dry sanding”. There are essentially three different types of sanding in terms of the finish itself, and each one uses a slightly different method for creating a higher quality end product. Generally speaking, the highest quality of sanding is called “dry sanding” from FloorSandingAndPolishingAdelaide.com.au, while low-quality sanding is known as “wet-sanding” of other companies.

Dry sanding involves using a machine to evenly sand the surfaces of your wooden flooring, while wet sanding involves a machine that provides a water-based compound that will deeply sand the surface of your wooden floors. Typically, the company you hire for your polishing job will be able to do both methods successfully. If you choose to have them perform the job in-house, you can ask them to explain the differences in detail to ensure you truly understand the process. However, if you are looking to complete the task entirely by yourself, it may be wise to go with a do-it-yourself guide or kit that can show you everything you need to know.

For many homeowners, polishing and cleaning are often done simultaneously as floor sanding and maintenance. For this reason, you must ensure that you get all of your floors polished and sanded at the same time. Although this may seem like an additional expense on top of the already too expensive cost of polishing and refinishing your wooden floors, you will find that the extra work is well worth it. You may even find that you want to install some automatic floor sanding and polishing machines to take care of the majority of your floor sanding and polishing chores. It will help you save time, energy, and money.

As you can see, numerous reasons can justify why you should get your wood floors polished and sanded. From more practical uses to appearances and even as a little bit of preventative maintenance, these treatments can dramatically enhance the appearance of your home. It is important to realize, though, that these treatments are not only meant for looks. Many of the best all-around finishes for timber floors are also excellent for sound management. In this way, polishing and sanding by Floor Sanding and Polishing Adelaide enhances the home’s beauty and creates an environment conducive to great, long-lasting enjoyment.
