The process of wood flooring restoration is performed in three stages:
- Preparation for sanding
- Actual sanding
- Coating with a sealant to protect the area
The process starts as the area is cleaned thoroughly and dust or dirt is removed completely. All tacks or staples on previous coverings, if available, are removed, otherwise they can damage the surface. When the preparation process is completed, it’s time for the actual sanding, which is performed with the help of machines. It can be also done by hand at areas that the sanding machine can’t reach. In case of cracks or even missing parts in the wood flooring, some additional services like Floor fitting, Floor repairs and Floor installation might be needed. This can involve replacing of parts or refitting of panels. When the floor is sanded, it is coated with a sealant, which can be polyurethane or oils. Coating has to be done by a professional, who wears a mask, for the fact that such sealants are highly toxic.
