Stage 3: Our Floor Sanding & Restoration Process
Our Sanding Process
Once our floor sanding Surrey experts have prepared the floor, including securing floorboards and clearing the surface of any protrusions, we assess the floor to determine the best sanding approach. This begins with determining the types of abrasives are needed to sand the surface of the wood. Generally, we use a coarse
sanding belt with 40-grit sandpaper when we initially sand the floor. When a floor has significant stains, including paint and discolouration, we use courser 24-grit sandpaper to remove dirt and imperfections on the surface. This sanding process will leave your floor clear of dirt and ready for the refinishing and restoration process.
Our Finishing Process
After sanding the floor, the wood is left with a very course finish. In order to get the wood smooth and clean, we re-sand the floor with finer sandpaper. Typically we will finish off with very fine 120-grit sandpaper.
We take our time using various types of fine abrasives to ensure the surface is as smooth as possible and ready to apply stains and seals to get a professional, restored look that meets your requirements.
Our Sanding Equipment
GJP Floor Sanding Surrey uses the best abrasives and sanding machines to ensure a professional end-product that you, and our staff, can be proud of. We use virtually dust-free sanding equipment, including German-made Hummel sanding machines. We also use Swedish-made Bona machines and abrasives, which feature industry-leading vacuum and dust extraction systems that leave very little dust.
Although our equipment is virtually dust free, they can still be loud. If you decide to resurface and refinish your floors, we recommend that you inform your neighbours, especially during the sanding process. As a courtesy to you and your neighbours, we also restrict our work from between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. in order to keep any disturbance to a minimum.
Really pleased with the end result. Would highly recommend the company for their professional approach and high standard of workmanship.
Thanks it looks amazing. Well done to all the guys who did a splendid job on time. Cleared all rubbish aways as well. Highly recommended. – 30/11/2010
The work was carried out efficiently with a professional service. Where the job ended up being more complex that first envisaged the GJP team invested extra time to sort things out. We were very pleased with the work done. Rachael Atkinson 30/10/2010.
I should like to say that we are very impressed by the work done – the floor looks incredible and also the clear up job afterwards was very professional. There was no mess at all and it was dust free. (I’m not sure how you managed that). Oliver Gillespie 10/12/2010.
