What is dustless sanding?

With the Dust Containment System, there is minimal airborne wood dust. Machinery is hooked up directly to a vacuum system. We recommend that sensitive electronics be removed or covered. Dustless machinery means a cleaner and healthier home.  It also means a healthier work environment for our staff. Minimal clean up is required.

Do I need to remove my furniture?

Yes, all furniture must be removed from the work area prior to the start of the sanding project. Professional movers are available for this service if needed.

When can I put my furniture back?

Our general rule of thumb is that small furniture can be placed back onto the floor 48-72 hours after the last coat is applied. Floor rugs will need to be kept off of the floor for the entire cure time (7-10 days) of your chosen coating.

How many times can a floor be sanded?

As a guide a solid 19mm tongue and groove floor should be able to be sanded 4 to 6 times depending on the installation method. Other timber floor products such an engineered flooring may vary.

What does the sanding process involve?

The floor is sanded multiple times with progressively finer grits of paper to level the floor and remove old finish. Nails are punched and putty applied as required.

How many coats of finish are applied?

Three coats of your selected finish are applied to the floor in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendation. Light sanding occurs between each coat to minimize contaminants in the finish.

Can I change the colour of my floor?

Yes, a range of colours are available to choose from. Floors can be stained directly to the timber to provide a darker and richer stain or we can add a stain to the coating process to tint the colour. Staining may add more time and cost to the project.

How long will the sanding project take?

About 2-3 days for small jobs around 50m2 and for larger jobs you need to allow 3-4 days. Sanding projects can be affected by the condition of a floor, presence of glues or the weather may affect drying times. Any changes to the project will be communicated to our customers.

I am installing a new kitchen should I sand the floors first?

It is advisable to sand the kitchen floor before the new kitchen is installed to avoid sanding up to a new kickboard.

Can I stay in my house while the work is being done?

The sanding machines can be loud so avoiding the work area is recommended. Some finishes are strong-smelling and will require alternative sleeping plans. Living in the house during the application of a solvent based finish is not recommended. Ask us about our environmentally-friendly waterborne finishes as an alternative.

Do you remove carpet?

Yes. We can remove and dispose of your carpet and underlay.

What if I live in a high-rise?

No problem. We have portable extraction systems. Please note that these portable systems can cause some airborne dust but are the best option for high-rise projects.
