Preparation: We prepare the area by making sure it clean, free of personal items and protruding nails.


Sanding: We sand the floor with our top-of-the-line weighted rotary sander, which allows us to safely sand all kinds of floors.


Smooth: We continue sanding, moving to progressively smoother grades of sanding discs.


Edges: Our big sanding machine can’t go all the way to the edges, so we use a hand-held rotary sander.


Seals: We apply any toners or stains requested by the customer, and seal the floor with a barrier seal.


Finish: The last step is to apply our two-pack, water-based polyurethane coating to protect your floor and give a lovely shine.

Experience Counts

Electrodry combine decades of experience with up-to-date training. Our timber floor technicians are specially trained and certified by ATFA – the Australian Timber Flooring Association, and are experts in wood floor refinishing. This means they can help you decide which one of our Timber Floor services suit your floor and your budget best, whether it’s Timber Restore, Timber Refresh or Wood Floor Sanding.

We Don’t Cut Corners

We believe in producing the best possible results for customers, in the most efficient way. This means we don’t cut corners when sanding your floor, we don’t have hidden costs, we don’t waste time, and we communicate with you about what your floor needs. It also means that we invest in state-of-the-art machines and products that allow us to work faster without sacrificing quality. That’s how we can offer 48-hour sanding compared to the 4+ days of most sanders, and still produce an amazing end result.              

Hobart Floor Sanding Costs

When we give you a quote, everything is included. That means GST and all the costs of the job. The only ‘extra’ charge is for the quote itself! It costs $40 to have a technician come to your house, assess the job and discuss options with you. The good news is that this fee will be refunded to you if you go ahead with the sanding job!



Electrodry has been cleaning homes in Hobart for more than thirty years, starting out with our revolutionary carpet dry cleaning service in the 80s. Since then we’ve been expanding our cleaning and renovation services into new frontiers. For many years now, we have been offering our Wood Floor Refinishing services, Timber Restore and Timber Refresh. These services are ideal for worn floors that don’t quite need sanding. Most recently we’ve expanded our services to offer floor sanding all around Hobart, including Moonah, Glebe, New Town, Sandy Bay and Battery Point.


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 on 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 Hobart 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 of our different options for your floor. Whatever you choose, you can know your floor is in good hands.
