Floor Sanding Adelaide

What grit do I need to sand floors?

Grit series is crucial when it comes to sanding a hardwood floor.

You should begin with a coarser grit and work your way down to a finer grit. The first grit is used to remove any finish, the second grit is used to smooth out the first grit's pattern, and the third grit is used to remove any residual sander marks and add the finishing touches.

You won't be able to achieve a smooth transition between grits if you use the wrong sander series. A grit line would be left behind by your big unit, which you certainly don't like.

You can achieve a cool, smooth transition from one grit to the next if you choose the right sequence for the floor you're working with. The finish will adhere uniformly to the floor and look fantastic.

To achieve a smooth sanded floor, you can need more than three grits. Most floors only need three passes with the big machine to achieve a smooth finish if you follow the proper sanding series. Checkout the best Floor sanding in Adelaide for more info.

Should I use the big machine or edger first?

This is dependent on the sanding expert's knowledge. It becomes a preference when you gain experience and can achieve smooth cut transitions at the wall lines. In most situations, I suggest using the big machine before the edger for beginners. Beginners using the big machine are more likely to cut a drum or "beauty" mark in the concrete, as well as uneven gaps between the walls and the sanded area.

How To Refinish Hardwood Floors

Since you can see the sanded area and edging can erase drum marks created at this point in the sanding sequence, doing the edging afterwards allows you to know exactly how far out you need to edge. The floor is cut as close to the wall lines as possible by an experienced contractor on the big machine, leaving less for the person edging (unless you have it in for the person edging, then stop about 2 feet away from the wall!). It takes practise to make smooth drum cuts with the big machine, and each big machine must be properly tuned. The drum's motion should be similar to that of a plane, with smooth takeoffs and landings and constant movement.

How To Refinish Hardwood Floors?

Hardwood floors are known to last the lifetime of a house. They would inevitably need to be refinished due to normal wear and tear. Learning how to refinish hardwood floors can be a time-consuming and multi-step process. It can also be a fun do-it-yourself project that is less expensive than hiring a flooring contractor or refinisher.

What protective equipment will I need?

It's always necessary to stay clean, so invest in some high-quality dust masks (we suggest FFP2), ear protection (proper ear muffs are best, but earplugs will suffice), and sensible footwear.
