However, the machines we use are the latest dust-reducing models so you can expect very little of this annoying side product. We also as we work seal off other parts of the house, and when we’re though we do a thorough clean before leaving the premises.

HOW LONG WILL THE WORK TAKE?

 

Excellent Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding DorkingWe’ve been sanding and restoring wooden floors in Dorking for 20 years and can say with confidence that the average room will take on average two days to repair, sand and finish. By ‘average’ we mean something the size of a regular lounge or dining area. Allow one day for repairs and up to three sweeps with the sanding machines. This will depend on the state of the floorboards and if they are in an especially poor condition it may take slightly longer. 

 

A further day will be needed to expertly apply the finish you’ve chosen to complete the job. This will have to be left alone for a further day, or two to be on the safe side, after we’ve gone and before you will be able to move the furniture back in.

 

​​WHAT SORT OF REPAIRS WILL YOU NEED TO DO?

Experts in Floor Sanding & Finishing in Floor Sanding DorkingThis will depend on the state of the floorboards. Rotting wood, for instance, will need to be replaced and gaps between the boards filled in. We do this with a range of modern silicon and resin products, and use slivers on the bigger gaps. This will help eliminate creaks and groans when you walk across them. It will also have an impact on your heating bills. These repairs are necessary to get the floor solid and ready to be sanded down.
