Some Myths about Floor Sanding Techniques

Floor sanding is a process of removing the dirt and other grimes that has accumulated from it through the years. Specialized machines such drum sanders are used to removed dirt from expansive areas whereas edgers are used to clean out crevices and corners that cannot be easily accessible by the large drum sanders. What follows are some of the myths surrounding the floor sanding.

Sanding requires Frequent Recoating

This is a regular ploy used by rogue floor sanding service to get guaranteed business from you every few years. Reliable and competent sanding companies always use the latest equipments and best quality materials so that once you ‘sand’ your floor you can rest in peace for at least a decade. Simple maintenance such as mopping and regular vacuuming is all you need to keep your floors in your home to be in perfect shape and good condition for years. The sealant applied at the last step of the sanding process will hold for years and keep your floors dirt-free and shiny no matter how heavy the traffic. So never hire a service provide if he insists on a maintenance contract for long-term upkeep of your floor.

Sanding Involves just Cleaning the Surface

Most casual service providers (who only want to make quick profit) will have you believe that floor sanding involves just cleaning the surface and applying a few coats of protective sealants. This is far from the truth. The floor sanders will be more thorough with their job. They will go through every inch of the floor surface; fill up all holes; smoothen out dents and bumps; replace broken boards; set loose nails and much more. All this should be part of your sanding contract so that once the project is over your floor will look smooth and stunningly beautiful.
