Why Floor sanding is a good choice
Dust Free!! –Floor sanding and wooden floor restoration has become a dust free process in the last decade, gone are the days of dusting down curtains and getting cleaning companies in after the sanding work. Our machines with there vacuum systems will extract 99.97% of dust at source, effectively this means whilst the machine is sanding the wood no dust will be seen even in the brightest of lights.
Not as loud as you think – another common misconception is that the Floor sanding process is so loud that you couldn’t bear to have that much noise in your home for days on end, again technology has come a long way, Although its never going to be a quite job floor sanding now is not as loud as it used to be. If the floor sanding is taking part in a room of the house with a door, many times my clients have been able to work from home whilst the wooden floor restoration is taking place.
Quicker than laying a new floor– If you consider that when having a new wooden floor installed that you will most likely have to remove current wooden floor, then have some form of subfloor preparation to do before even starting to install new solid or engineered wood flooring. then its easy to see how restoring your current hardwood or softwood by floor sanding will be a much quicker process.
Re designing your room?– Obviously in time all things change, what style/colour or taste you had before might need changing, when having your wooden floor sanded you can start again like a blank canvas. having either a dark or light finish, matt or gloss finish lacquer or oil finish.
What do we do with the sawdust waste product?
Floor sanding will always produce a waste product (lots of low and high grit saw dust ) this is always going to be the case, however at 4 seasons we like to do as much as we can to reduce our carbon footprint, nothing is wasted! We hand out all sawdust from our floor sanding jobs to local farmers or equestrian centres so that it can be used as floor bedding.

Frequently asked questions
Floor sanding is a big decision to make, so below we have listed a few of our commonly asked questions, if you can think of any that we have not mentioned then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Depending on if your choice is lacquer or oil, this may vary however. lacquer- 1/2 hours per coat. oil- 4/6 hours per coat.
If you choose to have your wooden floor coloured then I will put down samples of different colours directly to the wooden floor so you can decide properly.
If you have victorian pine boards then we will use pine fillets and adhesive to fill them the proper way, there are cut off and then sanded back to leave a flush surface of pine where your gaps were.
If you have a hardwood that we are sanding and you have natural seasonal movement that has formed small gaps around the floor, we use a mastic filler that we will try to match close as we can to your floor.
Again if you have many gaps around a herringbone floor then we will mix the sawdust with a resin that is spread across the floor numerous times to sink into the many gaps, then sanded and finished.
Sourcing identical boards if you have an old floor is vert hard to do, so I will always try to source some boards from hidden locations such as cupboards or under stairs, cut and fix into place then sand & fill.
This will off course depend on the size and specification of your project, however as a rule of thumb to follow; 1 room per day if a basic specification is followed, if this one room requires gap filling, repairs or colouring then allow 2 days per room.
