Sanding a floor is a very simple process in principal. I will try to set out the order of goals that we work through to achieve a surface ready to receive the required treatment.
Firstly, we rough cut the floor to clean and level the surface. Corners, edges and main floor areas require different machines and the sanding action of these machines is very different so they each leave different scratches in the timber.
Our next job is scratch removal. A new set of equipment is used to gradually remove scratches left by the initial process. We work through the grades of paper to achieve this. At the same time, we are concentrating on blending the different sanding actions together so that the surface is completely even. Once this process is finished, your floor is now ready to take the sealant.
