FAQS

Qualified Floor Gap filling, Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding ChelmsfordIs it fair to guess that you have more than just a few questions regarding floor sanding and finishing in Chelmsford CM3? We thought so! Here to help you is a list of some of the more popular questions we’ve answered over the years. If yours is not one of them don’t worry – simply contact us  by email or phone and we’ll be delighted to help.​

 

IS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO FILL ALL THE GAPS?

Excellent Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding Chelmsford	Filling the gaps between floorboards, even when these are small, is always recommended as otherwise drafts will form and heating bills rise. Plus there’s all those awful creaking sounds caused by loose boards rubbing up against each other that drive you nuts! We use eco-friendly silicon, slivers and resins to plug the gaps, keep the cold out and the heat in, get rid of those squeaks and preserve the floor’s integrity, before sanding it down.​

 

HOW LONG WILL THE WORK TAKE YOU?

Experts in Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding ChelmsfordA normal floor such as one in a lounge or dining room will take one day to repair and sand down and a further day to apply the finish. The finish will need time to thoroughly take and dry out after we’ve gone, too, and furniture cannot be moved back into the room before this has happened. The work may take a little longer if boards are badly damaged and need replacing, but you’ll find out all about such matters during the free initial site inspection.​

 

 

IS THERE GOING TO BE A LOT OF MESS?

Experienced team in Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding ChelmsfordNope, not any more! It’s true that sanding wooden floors used to be a particularly messy job because of all the sand dust that gets generated. Nowadays, however, the Chelmsford wood floor sanding company CM2 uses the very latest in dust reducing equipment to keep this to a minimum. We seal off other rooms as well and we tidy up completely before we leave, so mess is not an issue you need worry about.​

 

 

WHY CAN'T I JUST DO IT MYSELF WITH HIRED EQUIPMENT?

Excellent photos for floor sanding in Floor Sanding Chelmsford			You can do anything yourself if you want to, but end results can vary enormously. Not only is wood floor sanding and finishing a highly skilled job, but if the equipment is not fit for purpose you could end up with warped floorboards or deep gouges. Not all hire equipment is well maintained or of the latest type, but our machines are cutting-edge and regularly serviced to guarantee the finest results. The finish, too, needs to be applied by professionals like the Chelmsford CM1 wood floor sanding team, who have worked with wood for years and know which stains are appropriate and how to apply them properly.

 

 

WHAT IF I'M SENSITIVE TO CHEMICALS?

​WILL THERE BE MUCH UPHEAVAL?

Our sand flooring teams can arrange to do the work outside of normal office hours, for instance, and in the case of schools it can be carried out during school holidays. We’ve been doing this work for so long that it has become second nature for us to get in and out so fast that the work will have been completed almost before you notice we were there – we’re practically floor sanding ninjas! The only tell-tale sign of our fleeting presence will be your beautifully rejuvenated wooden floor.

 

 

​CAN I REALLY GET THIS DIRTY OLD FLOOR RENOVATED?

Fantastic Floor Sanding Services in Floor Sanding Chelmsford​In our experience, the vast majority of wooden floors look absolutely fabulous once they’ve been expertly sanded down. The layers of dirt and stains of various types, hard and seemingly immovable, may in fact be protecting the underlying fresh wood. Stripping them away will reveal the clean hardwood underneath. Even badly damaged floorboards can be fairly easily repaired or where necessary replaced using sustainable sources.

 

 

ARE HARD FLOORS REALLY BETTER FOR ASTHMA SUFFERERS?

Fantastic Floor Sanding Services in Floor Sanding Chelmsford​Absolutely. Many household allergies are caused by dust mites that love to hide in the fabric of carpets and soft furnishings. It’s a simple matter to thoroughly clean bare floorboards with a damp cloth or cleaning equipment, and rugs can be washed separately and hung out to dry and kill any mites lurking inside them.
