OUR WOOD FLOOR SANDING AND REFINISHING PROCESS

STEP 1

We start by giving the area to be sanded a thorough clean and punching nails deeper into the boards where required.

STEP 2

Then we sand the floor with a weighted rotary sander, which removes less timber than a belt sander, so your floor will last longer.

STEP 3

We continue sanding, using progressively finer grades of sandpaper to remove scratches and discolouration and to give your floor a smooth finish.

STEP 4

Next, we sand the edges using a hand-held rotary sander, with the final sand being done with an orbital sander, leaving a smooth, scratch-free finish.

STEP 5

We then apply a barrier seal to your floor to prepare it for coating. If required, this can be followed by a thin coat of a desired toner

STEP 6

The last step is to apply two coats of a high density, two-pack water-based polyurethane for a durable finish.

WHY ELECTRODRY ADELAIDE ARE THE WOOD FLOOR EXPERTS?

 
   

Experience Counts

In 2018, Electrodry refinished over 2000 wood floors across Australia. We’ve been providing home cleaning and renovation services for over thirty years. We’re experts! Electrodry offers a full range of wood floor refinishing services, so we can look after your timber floor, whatever state it’s in.

We Don’t Cut Corners

Electrodry guarantees an all-inclusive floor sanding and refinishing process. We take the time and effort to make your floor gets the treatment it needs. Electrodry technicians use a weighted rotary sander instead of a belt sander. This means we take off less wood during the sanding process, which means your floorboards will last longer. Our equipment also allows us to refinish delicate timber floors without causing damage to them. We always use at least three grades of sanding discs, gradually increasing the fineness to remove damage without risking sanding swirls or scratches.

We make sure we keep you in the loop, giving you concise information about pricing and timing, as well as having conversations about what kind of finishes or toners you might want for your floorboards. Our expertise means we know how to use the right sandpaper grades for the age and condition of the floor, and we use the right tools and processes to get the details just right.

Our Costs

Our costs are all-inclusive. When we give you a quote it will include GST, as well as all the costs of the job. There is a $30 fee to inspect the job and give a quote, but that fee is refunded when you actually hire us to do the job.

The costs for floor sanding and refinishing vary in different parts of the country, as well as varying depending on the size and condition of the floor. Book a technician to come give you a quote for exact pricing, or call 13 27 13 or email [email protected] for more pricing information.

 

FAQ ABOUT FLOOR SANDING

All furniture and personal items will need to be removed from the rooms we are sanding. If necessary, you can leave very heavy items like fridges in place, and we can work around them.

The time will vary based on the size of the job. A small job (a single room) can be done in a day. Medium jobs, up to 75 square metres should take two to three days, while the timing for larger jobs must be determined based on the size of the floor and the amount of work required. Timing will be communicated at the time of quoting the job. If we are staining the floor or doing optional extras such as whitewashing, the time required will increase by 24 to 48 hours.

Your floor will be ready to walk on the day after we finish the job, however, we recommend just walking in socks for the first 36-48 hours. Furniture can be replaced the next day, but you will need to attach new furniture pads under your furniture to prevent scratching. Heavy wheeled items must be kept off the floor for a week, as must rugs and other floor coverings.

Many floor sanding companies use a technician and a junior apprentice, and apply two or three solvent-based coatings, taking a day to dry between each coat. Electrodry uses skilled two-man crews of experienced technicians, and we use a rapid-curing two-pack floor coating that lets us apply multiple coats of polyurethane in one day. That’s how we finish the job faster!

In most cases, finding somewhere else will be your most comfortable option. This is especially important if you are pregnant or suffer from asthma, as the smells and noise from our work may be problematic. If your most important rooms aren’t being sanded, you can choose to stay in the house, but it is important to note that you will not be able to access or walk through the rooms being sanded.

While there may be odours while we are working and applying polyurethane coatings, this will dissipate quickly, and there should be almost no detectable odour within four hours. This is because Electrodry uses high-quality water-based floor coatings that have rapid curing times and create minimal odours.

Our dust capture system collects most of the dust we create while sanding. There may still be a light film of dust left on surfaces in the sanding area, but we will wipe down the surfaces as part of our process.

The sanding process will remove most damage in your wooden floor. However, some pre-existing issues may remain or could affect the final finish of your floor. These include:

1) Deep cuts in your floorboards cannot be sanded out, as the level we would have to sand the boards to would make the floor dangerously thin.

2) Weathered or water damaged floorboards may need to be replaced or may affect the tone and evenness of the end result.

3) Floors stained by urine may still have dark stains after sanding.

Electrodry Adelaide provides floor sanding and polishing services for hardwood and engineered wood floors. Engineered floors have a 2-3mm timber veneer over MDF board, which can be safely sanded using our rotary sanding process. It is important to note that engineered floors can only be sanded once.

Electrodry’s Timber Refresh and Timber Restore are excellent options for floors that have small scratches, are worn, discoloured or have a build-up of dirt and cleaning solutions. Both of these services take just one day and are cheaper than sanding. However, some floors need more. Electrodry Wood Floor Sanding is a great option if your floor is seriously scratched or unevenly worn. Our Wood Floor Refinishing page contains a full comparison between our different options for your floor. Whatever you choose, you can know your floor is in good hands.
