CENTRAL COAST FLOOR SANDING AND REFINISHING PROCESS

STEP 1

We thoroughly clean the area that prior to being sanding and will punch nails further into the boards where needed.

STEP 2

We’ll sand with a weighted sander, to remove less timber than a belt sander.

STEP 3

We continue sanding with gradually finer grades of sandpaper to eliminate scratches and discolouration and ensure a pristine finish.

STEP 4

We use a hand-held rotary sander to sand the edges, with the final sand completed with an orbital sander, for a scratch-free finish.

STEP 5

We apply a protective seal in preparation for coating. We can follow this with a thin coat of a desired toner if asked for.

STEP 6

Two coats of a high density, two-pack water-based polyurethane are applied for a durable finish.

Experience Matters

Our teams have been offering home cleaning and renovation services to the people of the Central Coast, including Gosford, for more than 35 years, meaning our experience can't be beaten. Last year, we refinished more than 2000 wood floors in Australia, achieving amazing results for many floors. We offer a range of wood floor refinishing services, so we can do great things for your timber floor, whatever condition it’s in.

We Don’t Cut Corners

Electrodry technicians guarantee an all-inclusive floor sanding and refinishing process. We take the effort to guarantee your floor gets the treatment it needs. By using a weighted rotary sander, we take off less wood during the sanding process to help floorboards to last longer. Our equipment means we can refinish delicate timber floors without causing damage.

We’re upfront about pricing and timing, and we’ll discuss with you what kind of finishes or toners you might want for your floorboards. Our experts will use the right sandpaper grades for the age and condition of your floor, ensuring we get you a great result without damaging your floors.

Our Pricing

Electrodry’s quotes include GST and costs are all-inclusive. We charge $30 to inspect and quote, but once you pick us, the fee is refunded. The costs per square metre for floor sanding and refinishing vary across the country and depend on the room size and floor condition.

FAQ ABOUT FLOOR SANDING GOSFORD AND CENTRAL COAST

You will need to remove personal items and furniture from the room being sanded. For very heavy items like fridges, we can work around them.

We can sand a small job (a single room) in a day while a medium jobs (up to 75 square metres) should take two to three days. The timing for larger jobs is based on the size of the floor and the amount of work required. We’ll speak to you about timing when we’re quoting the job. Staining the floor or doing optional extras such as whitewashing will increase the time by 24 to 48 hours.

It will be ready to walk on the day after we complete the job but we do recommend wearing socks for the next couple of days. You can return your furniture 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 well as rugs and other floor coverings.

While many floor sanding companies have a technician and a junior apprentice doing the job, we have a highly skilled two-man crew attending to your floors. Other companies will apply two or three solvent-based coatings, taking a day to dry between each coat. Electrodry uses a rapid-curing two-pack floor coating that lets us apply multiple coats of polyurethane in one day.

In most cases, finding somewhere to stay is the best option. If you are pregnant or have asthma this is a good idea as the smells and noise may be problematic. Please feel free to stay if the work is being done in a room you don’t use often. Just bear in mind that you will not be able to access or walk through the rooms being sanded.

At times, there may be odours while we’re applying polyurethane coatings, but these will dissipate quickly. There should be almost no detectable odour within four hours. We use high-quality water-based floor coatings that have rapid curing times and create minimal odours.

The Electrodry dust capture system collects most of the dust we create while sanding. Please be advised that there may still be a light film of dust left on surfaces in the sanding area, but we wipe down the surfaces as part of our process.

We are confident our process can remove most wooden floor damage, but some pre-existing issues may remain or could affect the finish. 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 Central Coast offers 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 service is an excellent option for floors with 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. We find that some floors need more though. Electrodry Wood Floor Sanding is a great option if your floor is seriously scratched or unevenly worn. Please see our Wood Floor Refinishing page contains a full comparison between our different options for your floor.
