How Long Does It Take To Sand Wood Floors?

The best kind of floor you can have in your home is a wooden floor. Wooden floors are a natural, non-toxic, resilient, and beautiful solution for your flooring needs. They are also easy to clean and more hygienic, as they do not harbour a lot of dust, germs, and bacteria, making them more suitable for people who may have allergies.

To ensure that your wooden floor is looking its best it will often need sanding. At Sussex Floor Restoration we can provide you with a dustless wood floor sanding service on a range of different surfaces. With the use of dust extraction technology, we are able to deliver you a 98% dustless service, meaning there will be a minimal amount of clean-up afterward!

When sanding your floors there are a number of factors that will affect the time taken to finish the work. For instance, there could be unforeseen circumstances such as repairs to the main body of the floor, or there may be some flooring that needs replacing. You will also need to factor in the time taken for the finish coating to cure, during which time the floor cannot be walked on. Typically, it will take at least a couple of days for us to complete the sanding process.

The Process

The time it takes to sand your floors will depend on how long each individual step takes in our process. With each new enquiry that comes in, there are many variables, therefore it is difficult to set a timeframe on how long each job will take. Each floor is unique!

Step One: Enquiry

To get your job moving, you will need to contact one of our friendly Sussex Floor team members to discuss your enquiry.

Step Two: Quote and Survey

In this step, we listen to your needs and assess any factors that could affect the quote, such as technical specifications. We can then give you guidance on how to set up your site for the work.

Step Three: The Works

This is the main event. Once we have gathered all of the information that we need we can then get to work. The time spent sanding will depend on the size of the flooring area.

Step Four: Finishing

Once sanding has been completed, we then coat the floor with either a water-based or oil-based finish (this will be your decision). Our coatings are all eco-friendly and all have very low VOC’s so as to protect both our and your health.

Step Five: Aftercare

Once you have finished looking at your new beautiful flooring with awe, the aftercare of your floor will need to be considered. We will provide you with a comprehensive care guide from our partner, Pallman, who is the world’s leading authority on floor restoration.
