Cautions before Floor Sanding Process
Some important notes before our team arrive on the site:
- Remove indoor plants, furniture, and edibles
- Make sure there are multiple electricity connections available
- Ensure enough parking space is available to accommodate heavy machinery
- The property should be vacant, and no other tradesperson should be working to avoid contamination
Stages of Floor Sanding Process
There are in total three stages which are involved in reviving the shine of your wooden floor. That is;
- Floor sanding
- Floor coating
Preparation involves removing damaged pins, staples and tacks from the previous flooring to prepare the floor for the sanding process, as these staples may harm the machinery. After their removal, nails are punched, and any required treatment of the floor is done.
It is usual practice to sand the floor with 40 grit to start to balance out any difference in height between boards. Then, the floor is treated multiple times with various sandpapers of different grits as recommended by our flooring specialist. First, it is sanded with 60 grits, followed by 80 grits to the medium range of sanding. Corner and edges are also sanded to make the floor ready for the final sanding stage. Minor holes and gaps are filled, and the floor is then given time to settle and dry out after application of the filler. The floor is then finely sanded, and a disc is applied to it to make it ready for the first coat.

In the early days, oil-based polyurethane was commonly used. Now there has been a lot of development in water-based polyurethane, and the product is much safer and durable. Water-based polyurethane has a lower Volatile Organic Compound. It is eco-friendly and does not leave toxic fumes. The drying time of the water-based polyurethane is much lower than oil-based, drying completely within 24 hours; therefore, water-based polyurethane is our preferred choice of coating.
Application of coats
This stage of the process requires extra care to prevent any contamination, which could cause damage. Even a pitch of dust is not healthy for the exposed wooden floor. The machinery involved in floor sanding is designed as such, keeping the adherence of dust to the floor at minimum.
After sanding, the floor is vacuumed and wiped with a damp microfibre cloth to remove any leftover wood dust. Then it is left to dry so that the floor is ready for coating. We use three coats of water-based polyurethane after preparing the floor. One coat requires at least one complete day to get it dry completely. It is suggested to keep this area free of any visitors or people for the next 24 hours. Any walking on the wet floor will not only damage the finish but will also leave marks and dust that would be hard to manage. The second and third coat is applied exactly 24 hours after the previous coat. It requires about three solid days for the polyurethane to mature and solidify.
Installing back furniture & rugs
It is a nice idea to keep your treated floor free of any furniture or heavy items for the next seven days. If furniture needs to be moved back into the room before one week, then no earlier than 48 hours of the final application. Never drag your furniture on the floor as it will lead to tinting, scratching, and scrapping of the floor. Carpets and rugs should be installed back after one week as they may stick to varnish and cause scratching, imprints and marks.
