WOOD FLOOR SANDING – DIY OR CALL IN THE PROFESSIONALS?
25 August 2013
If your wood floor has seen better days and is covered with scratches, scuffs and scrapes, it might be time to get it re-sanded. You have a couple of choices when it comes to floor sanding – you can do it yourself or you can call in a wood floor sanding specialist. But which is best?
DIY floor sanding
You can hire a floor sanding machine (The hire machines are not the same quality as our professional machines) yourself to re-sand your wood floors, but you need to be able to use it to end up with the desired finish. Floor sanding can be a tricky business, requiring a lot of attention to detail, so you may only want to tackle the job yourself if you have experience, and a whole heap of DIY knowledge. The machines are incredibly fierce and can leave roller/gauge marks if not used correctly. If you make a mess of it, you will end up having to call in the professionals anyway to correct your mistakes, or even worse, need the floor replaced!
Using a professional floor sanding service
It may cost a little more to call in a professional to re-sand your floors, but most people who’ve tackled wood floor sanding before will agree that it’s a wise investment (a lot of people would say, never again! after their first attempt at a DIY sanding job). With experience, top end specialist tools and the attention to detail that non-wood floor expert’s lack, a re-sanding specialist will get your floor looking its best with no roller marks!
