New Zealanders mostly prefer wooden floors over rugs and carpets. The investment in floors may seem to be a one-time purchase, but they require proper care and support to offer a long-lasting experience. CleaningPro's floor sanding service is here to resolve your worries with quality maintenance and assurance from sanding to polishing. With experience spanning over 7 years, we can service any wooden floor ranging from wooden floorboards, particleboard and strand board, parquetry, pre-finished wooden tile, and engineered wooden flooring.
You may have a beautiful and lavish house, but you are missing out if its floor is not attractive! You surely do not want to lose the charm of your pretty house just because it lacks a robust floor. The first thing that a person notices while entering someone's house is the cleanliness and the attractiveness of the floor, and if you fail to maintain that – you lose the game! All you need to do is hire someone who is experienced and well equipped. When choosing a company, you need to see if it fulfils your requirements and fits your budget. Don't worry! We've got your back. Just make a call and leave the rest to us. We have everything planned, and we are only one call away from you.

Some important notes before our team arrives on site:
There are three stages involved in reviving the shine of your wooden floor:
The preparation process includes removing any unwanted pins, staples, and tacks to prepare the floor for sanding. It is necessary because these items may damage the machinery during the construction phase. Once they're removed, nails are punched by hand or with a nail punch machine, depending on the type used in previous installation procedures.
It is usual practice to sand the floor with 40 grit to balance out any difference in height between boards. The floor is treated multiple times with various sandpapers of different grits as recommended by our flooring specialist. First, it is sanded with 40 grit, followed by 80 grit to the medium range of sanding. Final sanding is completed with 120 grit sandpaper.
The corners 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 applying the filler. The floor is then finely sanded, and a disc is applied to it to make it ready for the first coat.
CleaningPro gives you a free bonus offer to fix and polish small problems with your wood floors e.g., mending minor pipe holes, repairing a loose board, and removing damaged pins and staples. We can add additional repair services to the list, and the final cost may be revised at the time of the area visit.
In the early days, oil-based polyurethane was commonly used. There has been a lot of development in water-based polyurethane, and the product is much safer and more 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.
This stage of the process requires extra care to prevent any contamination, which could cause damage. Even a small amount of dust is not healthy for the exposed wooden floor. The machinery involved in floor sanding is designed to keep the adherence of dust to the floor at a 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 3 coats of water-based polyurethane after preparing the floor. One coat requires at least 3-6 hours to completely dry. It is suggested to keep this area free of any visitors or people for the next 24 hours. Walking on a wet floor will damage the finish and leave marks and dust that will be difficult to remove.
The second and third coats are applied after the previous coat is dry. It requires about 3 solid days for the polyurethane to mature and solidify. You may choose to have 3 coats of clear polyurethane (matt, satin, or gloss finish), or you may wish to apply one coat of stain colour and two coats of clear polyurethane.
Three coats of clear water-based polyurethane floor finish of your choice (matt or gloss).
One coat of intense prime and two coats of clear water-based polyurethane floor finish of your choice (matt or gloss).
One coat of Bona Drifast stain colour of your choice and two coats of clear water-based polyurethane floor finish of your choice (matt or gloss). We have 12 different stain colours to choose from.
If you want your floors to stay nice, it is a good idea not to put furniture or heavy items on the floor for at least 7 days. If this is not possible then no sooner than 48 hours after the application of varnish. Dragging furniture across freshly varnished wood will result in scratches and scrapes that will be difficult, if not impossible, to remove without first sanding down all layers of varnish! Carpets must be stored for a week before being returned to their original location. If the floors have just been sealed, they might tear when you try to take them up in the future.
