Debunking two floor sanding myths
A lot of people are reluctant to tackle a floor sanding project due to the perceived difficulties of effectively sanding a floor, along with misunderstandings about certain elements of the process. In an effort to dispel some of this ambiguity and doubt, we thought we'd debunk two of the biggest floor sanding myths out there.
Myth 1: Dustless floor sanding is too good to be true.
This myth is perfectly understandable.
We're conditioned to be sceptical of things that sound too good to be true, because they
usually are. As such, when we hear about a way of sanding floors that doesn't produce dust
(the number one reason most people avoid sanding floors), we assume it can't be true.
Surely the process doesn't effectively sand your floors, producing inferior results to other methods, or it's not really dust-free.
But the process isn't actually called 'dust-free sanding', it's called 'dustless'. Any professional in the industry will tell you the truth: the process does produce dust, but the technology used ensures that the amount of dust is minimal and handled in such a way that it avoids the noxious clouds of sawdust we've all come to associate with sanding.
Dustless sanding is 99% dust free. It's also just as effective as regular sanding, but it does require specialist equipment.
Myth 2: A re-coat every few years keeps your floors in perfect condition
The proper sanding, conditioning and treating of a wooden floor is an investment that nobody wants to see go to waste, and having a handy means of touching up your floors without having to fully sand them again is appealing. However, regularly re-coating a floor can feel like an added expense, and a time-consuming and
The good news is, it's not necessary!
Professional floor finishes are hard wearing. Provided you ensure your floor is properly
sanded and treated, and is well maintained, there is no need to 'touch up' the finish on
your floor by regularly re-coating it every few years. Maintenance generally involves
ensuring your wooden floor is regularly cleaned, to avoid dirt and grime abrading the
surface, and may also include buffing it to keep the finish in good condition.
Depending on the type of finish you use, it may be possible to touch up the floor should
it become damaged, by treating the damaged section specifically, but there is seldom the
need to completely retreat the whole floor on such a regular basis.
The best way to ensure your floor has a long and healthy life is to ensure a professional job is done at the outset. Get in touch today to discuss your floor sanding project with us, and find out what we can do to ensure you have the wooden floor of your dreams.
