NEWCASTLE FLOOR SANDING AND REFINISHING PROCESS

STEP 1

To begin, we clean your floor for sanding, punching nails to below the surface of the floorboards.

STEP 2

We sand all edges by hand. This ensures the safest, smoothest finish possible on your floorboards.

STEP 3

Our weighted rotary sander sands the floor. This extends the life of your floor by removing less timber than traditional belt sanders.

STEP 4

Next, edges and corners are detailed by hand. This is the best way to guarantee the ideal end result.

STEP 5

A protective seal is applied to your floor, followed by a light coat of polyurethane with toning colour, if needed.

STEP 6

Last, we apply two coats of a high density, two-pack water-borne polyurethane, for a long-lasting, robust finish.

Experience Counts

Last year, we refinished more than 2000 wood floors. We're the only sanding business in Australia that provides non-sanding wood floor refinishing services (see our Timber Refresh and Timber Restore pages). This means we offer options to refinish your floor to match your requirements and budget.

We use a weighted rotary sander rather than a traditional belt sander, removing less wood and ensuring we can refinish delicate engineered timber floors without damaging the floor. We always use at least 3 grades of sanding discs to give the smoothest finish without sanding scratches or swirls.

We Won’t Cut Corners

Electrodry Newcastle Floor Sanding provides an all-inclusive floor sanding and refinishing process. This means taking the time to get the job done right!

Our Costs

How much does floor sanding cost? Well our quotes are always “all inclusive”, and GST inclusive, to ensure you don’t have any hidden surprises. We do charge a fee of $30 to inspect and provide a quote. This is refundable if you proceed with us.

The cost per square meter for floor sanding and refinishing varies between cities or states and will vary depending on the state of the floor and work provided. If you would like a table of charges, call on 13 27 13 or e-mail [email protected] for pricing details.

 

ABOUT ELECTRODRY NEWCASTLE FLOOR SANDING

You may not have realised this, but Electrodry Newcastle are the home base for Electrodry Australia-wide! The original superhero origin story is that back in the 80s, Paul Burchell was cleaning hotel carpets. His original business, Monster Magic took off when he did an ad of him grinding mud into his mother in law’s carpet and then cleaning it again! But Paul was dissatisfied with how wet carpet steam cleaning left the carpets. He hatched a daring plan, and with help of some chemists from the US, Paul developed carpet dry cleaning! The Electrodry “super clean” was born! If you want to read the full Electrodry superhero origin story, you can find it here.

FAQ ABOUT FLOOR SANDING

There’s not too much to take care of. You will need to remove all furniture and personal items from the rooms that we will be sanding. If you would like to leave very heavy items in place such as your fridge, we can work around these.

Small jobs, such a single room, can be completed in a day. Medium size jobs (up to 75 square metres) will usually be completed in two days but may require three. Time frames for larger jobs will depend on the size of the job and the work required. Your technician will be able to give you a time frame when they inspect the job. Staining and customer colour options such as whitewashing will increase the job time by 24 to 48 hours, depending on the size of the job.

Your floor will be ready to walk on the following day, although we recommend just walking in socks for the 36-48 hours. Furniture can be replaced the following day, providing new furniture pads are placed under your furniture to prevent scratching. Heavy items with wheels such as furniture trolleys and fridges must be kept off the floor for 1 week. The same applies to floor coverings such as rugs.

Electrodry uses skilled 2 man crews (no junior apprentices) and rapid curing two-pack floor coatings that allow us to apply multiple coats of polyurethane to your floor in a day. This is in contrast to other floor sanders who often use a technician and a junior apprentice and apply two or three solvent-based coatings over two or three days.

If the area to be sanded does not include vital rooms such as bedrooms and kitchens, then it may be possible for you to stay in the house. However it is important that the rooms being sanded are completely free of traffic, so you won’t be able to access them during the sanding process. If you are considering staying in the house, keep in mind that you may find the noise unpleasant. It is especially recommended that if you are pregnant or suffer from asthma that you find alternative accommodation while we are working on your floors.

Electrodry uses high-quality two-pack water-based floor coatings with rapid curing times and minimal odours. In most cases you will struggle to detect an odour four hours after the completion of the job, meaning there will be no odour when you start using your freshly sanded rooms.

Electrodry uses a dust capture system that collects the great majority of dust we produce. You may find a light film of dust on some surfaces in areas where we are sanding, but we will wipe down these surfaces as part of the job.

We can sand out most damage to 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 (from carpet trimming knives, for example). This is because sanding out deep damage would require sanding the boards to a dangerously thin level.

2) Water Damaged or weathered floorboards may require replacing or may affect the even-ness or tone of the final result.

3) Urine damaged floor will have dark stains that may remain.

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, that can be safely sanded using our rotary sanding process.

Electrodry’s Timber Refresh and Timber Restore are great options for floors that have small scratches, are worn, discoloured or have a build-up of grime and cleaning solutions. These services are one-day options, and can give you a brilliant finish for a smaller cost than sanding. But for some floors, these services won’t be enough. We want to give you all the options to get your floor looking great again, and sanding is an important part of that! Electrodry Wood Floor Sanding is the best option when your floor is significantly scratched, unevenly worn, or just needs some serious work to have a new lease on life. See our Wood Floor Refinishing page for a full comparison.
