The timber floor sanding process
First of all, you will need to get rid of the furniture and remove existing floor coverings. The room should be free of debris and obstacles so that the procedure is smooth and can be carried out effectively.
The next step is to use a specialized sanding machine where the top layer of the floor is removed. A professional from MJS Floor Sanding will first use a coarse grit sandpaper and then progress to using the finer grids to smooth out the imperfections and level the surface.
A device called an edger is then used to reach areas that the main sanding machine is unable to access—for example, the corners and the edges of the room. The floor will pass through multiple sanding processes to achieve the desired smoothness and to prepare it for the finish. If you are thinking about changing the color or enhancing its natural shade, you will need to select a stain based on your aesthetic choice.
Once the stain is achieved, the final step will be to seal the floor with the protective finish. The finishing will add extra durability and a glossy finish.
