Naked Floors has been involved in Wood Floor Sanding projects in both commercial and residential properties dating back to the 18th Century.
We have worked on hundreds of wooden floors of many different types, both hardwood and softwood, including antique Parquet Floors and more modern Engineered Wood Floors, in both commercial and domestic environments, including pubs, clubs, shops, offices, schools, churches and gymnasiums.
Sanding Floors is not a doddle and as simple as collecting a floor sanding machine from a local hire shop, the process of sanding floors requires an extreme amount of physical energy and years of experience to achieve a top class finish that will produce a long lasting finish for your wood floor.
Yes it is possible to hire a machine and Sand Wood Floors yourself but unfortunately professional floor sanding machines required to sand a floor to achieve optimum results are not available from hire shops for DIY enthusiasts… Why? Because the sanding machinery is extremely heavy and in the hands of an untrained floor sanding machine operator a sanding and finishing machine can actually demolish a wall
At Naked Floors we have invested heavily in Professional Floor Sanding Machinery that produces only the finest of finishes for Wood Floors. The machines we use produce final results way beyond what can be achieved with hire shop floor sanding machines, hire machines pump out extreme amounts of dust into the atmosphere compared to professional sanding machines that extract 99% of dust during the Floor Sanding Process.
There are many Floor Sanding Companies that falsely advertise their floor sanding services as being 100% dust free. Reality is: there is no such service available as Dust Free Floor Sanding.
At Naked Floors our machines are fitted with 99% dust extraction and most of our tools actually have a hoses attached to a dust extraction vacuum unit thus creating minimal dust. At Naked Floors we are equipped to sand your floors without polluting the atmosphere, ideal for commercial premises such as bars, restaurants, offices, schools and churches.
In addition to Floor Sanding, Naked Floors offer an array of services during the sanding process:-
- Up lifting of old carpets
- Up lifting of hardboard sitting under carpets
- Removal of carpet gripper rods
- Floor repairs to include fixing down of loose floorboards or parquet blocks
- Replacing Floorboards or parquet blocks
- Gap filling between floorboards
- Floor sealing with a choice of Hardwax Oil or Wood Floor Lacquer
- Wood Floor Staining
- Fire place hearth removal and replacement of a hearth with floorboards if desired
In many period properties floor sanding should really be left to an experienced Floor Sanding Company… Why? Good Old Britain has a wealth of period properties, the original wood floors have now reached antique status (100 or more years old), if the floors are not looked after with care they will need replacing and therefore lost and gone forever. Many people purchase period properties for the character and original features such as Original Wood Floors.
If you are lucky enough to have original floorboards in good condition, it is highly recommended that you choose the services of an experienced Floor Sanding Company. Believe it or not every wood floor in every individual property is different and should be assessed in its own right prior to sanding.
Floorboards are in a form of many different widths and thicknesses, some are a mere 15mm thick, special care should be taken not to remove too much of the surface or they will become unsafe to withstand the weight of heavy furniture and in some cases unsafe to walk on. If an inexperienced floor sanding company makes a mistake you can end up with a hefty bill to completely replace a floor resulting in a key feature of your period property being lost forever and those house hunters on the lookout for a property with Original Floorboards will look elsewhere.
No matter what the condition of your floor, we have the experience and know how to transform your floors back to their original glory so they can be included as a main feature of your property.
Once your wood floor has been sanded, there is a vast range floor finishes to choose from. A range of grain enhancing coloured Wood Floor Stains are available to blend in with your surrounding decor, in addition a choice of protective coatings such as Hardwax Oil or wood floor lacquer.
Naked Floors will evaluate the condition of your existing Wooden Floors and provide a quote for sanding and finishing.
