Cleaning and preparing: We ensure the floor is clean and free of protruding nails, and ready to be sanded.


Sanding: We use a weighted rotary sander to sand the floor, removing the minimum amount of timber possible.


Smooth: We move through multiple grades of sandpaper, from coarse to smooth to remove scratches and smooth your floor.


Edges: We use a hand-held rotary sander followed by an orbital sander to sand the edges of the room that were missed by the larger sander.


Seals: We apply a water-based primer to the floor to prepare it for the finishing coats. This is the step where we can add a toner of the customer’s choice.


Finish: We apply to coats of a two-pack, high density, water-based polyurethane to give your floor a long-lasting finish.

Experience Counts

In the last 12 months, Electrodry have refinished over 1,500 timber floors across the country. We have been a constant presence in Melbourne for over thirty years, cleaning carpets and upholstery and restoring wooden floors. The decades have made our technicians into experts, and they are more than capable of delivering the right refinishing solution for your floor.

We Don’t Cut Corners

Our technicians use only the best equipment for the job. This means using a weighted rotary sander for the body of the floor, as it takes off less wood than a traditional belt sander, prolonging the life of your timber floor. We take our time when it comes to sanding, moving from course to finer grades of sanding discs, to ensure we leave the floor smooth and mark-free.

We believe in open communication with customers about the time and treatment for your floor. This means we’ll talk to you about what kind of toners and finishes you want for your floor, and we’ll discuss the age and use of the floor with you, as well as giving you advice for keeping your floor healthy into the future.

How Much Does it Cost?

Our quotes are all-inclusive: this means all the costs of the job, as well as GST. The only thing not included in the quote is the price of the quote. You pay $50 to get a technician to assess the job and give you a quotation. But, good news! If you go ahead with the job, this fee will be refunded to you. The cost per square metre varies across Australia, as well as depending on the condition of the floor and the difficulty of the job. If you would like a table of charges then don’t hesitate to call on 13 27 13 or email [email protected] for more pricing information.

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 Melbourne 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.
