Floor Sanding Process

The beauty of a wooden floor lies not just in its appearance but also in the craftsmanship that goes into its maintenance. At Glen Gilbertson Floor Sanding, we’ve honed our floor sanding process to perfection, ensuring each step is executed with meticulousness and precision.  

Here’s a detailed step-by-step guide to our sanding and polishing process:

1. Assessment

Before we begin, our experts conduct a thorough assessment of your floor. This helps us understand the type of wood, its age, any previous treatments, and the extent of wear and tear. This initial step is crucial as it guides the entire sanding process.

2. Preparation

All furniture and movable items are cleared from the room. We then clean the floor to remove any dust, debris, or loose particles. This ensures a smooth sanding process.

3. Initial Sanding
Using state-of-the-art equipment, we start with coarse-grit sandpaper to remove the old finish and any imperfections. This step is crucial in levelling the floor and preparing it for finer sanding.
4. Gap Filling
Any gaps or cracks in the floor are meticulously filled using a mixture of resin and fine sawdust. This ensures a seamless finish and adds to the floor’s longevity.
5. Intermediate Sanding

Once the gaps are filled, we move to medium-grit sandpaper. This step smoothens the floor further, removing any minor scratches or imperfections left behind by the coarse-grit sandpaper.

6. Fine Sanding

The final sanding step uses fine-grit sandpaper, giving the floor a smooth and even finish. Our attention to detail ensures that every inch of the floor is sanded to perfection.

7. Polishing

After sanding, we apply a protective layer to the floor. Depending on the type of wood and the desired finish, we might use oils, waxes, or lacquers. This enhances the natural beauty of the wood and protects it from wear and tear, too.

8. Final Inspection

Once the polishing is done, our experts conduct a final inspection. This step ensures that the entire process has been executed with precision and that the floor meets our high standards of quality.

Throughout the floor sanding process, our emphasis remains on attention to detail, meticulousness, and precision. We believe that each floor has its unique character, and our job is to enhance and preserve that character. With Glen Gilbertson Floor Sanding, you can be assured of a floor that’s not just beautiful but also crafted to perfection.

Glen is an incredible professional. The restoration job he did on some 65 year old floorboards at my mum’s house in Miranda was amazing. Not only do the floorboards now look brand new, there was no mess and no damage to skirting boards or doors. Glen is a very personable bloke who obviously takes great pride in his work, and I thought his price was very reasonable. I chose Glen based on the reviews I read here but the finished product was even better than I had hoped for. I can highly recommend Glen to anybody who wants high quality service. Thanks Glen – it was an absolute pleasure to deal with you.
We had the timber floors in our house re-done by Glen. They were originally done about 8 years ago and it was a disappointing and poorly done job. I particularly wanted our floors oiled this time and not lacquered and we found other services did not provide this and tried to talk us out of it. When we met Glen he very quickly won us over with his professionalism, passion and work ethic and he knew exactly what we wanted. We were rewarded with an absolutely first class job that has us wishing we had found him when we first had out floors done. The oil brings out the beautiful red colour of our Jarrad boards and everyone who comes to our house comments on them. He was able to repair the botched sanding from our previous sand. Our floors look new and look stunning. A great guy, great worker and value for money, would highly recommend him to anyone.
