Benefits of Floor Sanding in a Hills District Home

Over years, a home located in the Hills District, or anywhere in New South Wales, is exposed to the vagaries of wind, sun, temperature changes and precipitation, including moisture seepage and rain. If you have wooden or timber flooring in your Hills District home, the natural expansion and contraction of your home and its flooring will lead to gradual loss of finish and the appearance of small cracks in the wood. The beauty of wood or timber flooring, however, is that it can be restored. And the benefits of flooring sanding in a Hills District, or any other, home are legion; including rapid restoration of a beautiful appearance.

Floor sanding is always a normal component of timber or wood floor maintenance, but sanding such flooring isn’t easy or simple, in truth. For one, without the proper tools and training, sanding down a timber floor is both backbreaking labour that can easily go awry if it’s not carried out properly.

Various floor stains, resins or lacquers, as they’re sanded off, also become very small particulate matter, meaning some floor sanding in your Hills District home, when undertaken, may require the use of personal protective equipment such as respirators and ventilation devices to shuttle dirty air out of your home and clean replacement air in. Experienced specialty floor installers and restorers, such as A&J Flooring, understand just how a comprehensive floor sanding programme should be carried out.

Once wooden or timber flooring has been properly sanded, consider the type of finish or stain to be applied over it. No sort of wood-based flooring should be left unprotected from foot traffic as well as humidity and changes in a home’s interior temperature, lest the wood sustain long-term damage. Always consult with the professional firm carrying out the floor sanding in your Hills District home as to the proper and recommending finish material before it’s applied, not after, or you’ll need to sand it all over again if the finish applied doesn’t measure up.
