EXAMPLE OF THE SANDING AND POLISHING PROCESS
0. ARRIVAL TO SITE
We arrive to site to find a floor in poor condition, in dire need of some work.
For this example, we will go through the process of sanding and polishing of an engineered Merbau timber floor in Benowa Waters, QLD. A lot of people assume that engineered timber flooring cannot be sanded, however as long as there is still timber veneer (top layer) to sand, we can restore it perfectly to its former glory.
A good floor sander takes off less than a milimeter off the top, so a 3mm veneer will be suitable for 2-3 lifetime sandings. (All products sold by Zealsea have a minimum veneer depth of 3mm).
We use the latest state-of-the-art dust free sanding machine to sand the floor, and the huge spot of damaged flooring in the middle of the room disappears!
2. SEAL AND FIRST COAT
We apply a coat of sealer and the first coat of finish of your choosing (in this case, polyurethane based glossy varnish).
After the first coat of varnish has dried, we buffer the floor with a Polivac buffering machine.
4. FINAL COAT
We apply the final coat, and the floor looks absolutely perfect!
Frequently Asked Questions
"Can floating floors be sanded?"
A “floating floor” refers to a floor that is sitting on top of an underlay (as opposed to “direct stick”, which is glued directly to the subfloor). As the sanding machine has a significant weight to it (almost a tonne for some machines!), the sanding would be uneven as the floor would be compressed at the machine’s corresponding location.
Engineered floors that are glued down can be sanded however, assuming there is adequate top layer remaining.
"Do I need to move out whilst the sanding process is happening?"
Only if you choose polyurethane as the finish, which has a strong smell, or you cannot avoid walking on the floors for ~12 hours after water based finish is applied.
