Floor Sanding

Commercial Wood Floor Sanding In Belfast, Northern Ireland

Appearances are important. That’s why you may care whether you are presenting your premises in the best way possible when your customers or visitors come round.

Are your wooden floors looking a bit tired or worn down from being walked on all day? If so A.G. Rodgers use only the highest quality materials, we sand solid and semi-solid wood flooring and reseal it with contemporary hard wearing lacquers.  It is not a cheap process; however, when compared with the cost of a new floor, together with its fitting, it is often much more cost-effective. The options available are quite extensive.  Most prefer to show off the natural wood colour with a clear lacquer but we also offer a wide range of stains including grey colours and washed out beachy effects.

We guarantee consistant and professesional commercial floor sanding results. With our specially trained and experienced staff, we know what it takes to bring beaten and worn wooden floors back to life with lustre. We can service any commercial property or home in Northern Ireland.

How to sand a wooden floor?

  • First of all we start with a good hoover!
  • Make sure wood is sound and well adhered to the sub floor
  • Punch down any nails and remove any carpet staples
  • Then we sand the main body of the floor with the dust free Lagler Hummel Belt Sander, working diagonally across the room
  • Next the edges are sanded with the dust free Lagler Flip
  • Using the sawdust from sanding a filler can be made to match the colour of the existing floor, perfect for any gaps or defects in the wood
  • Sand the floor again working through the grades of paper
  • If necessary, we then deploy the Lagler Trio for finer finishing which helps get rid of the scratches made in the earlier process
  • Grain popping can now be achieved by spraying lightly with a mist of clean water.  Once dry, the floor will require a further light sand with a high-grade paper.
  • Hoovering in between each stage and making sure the floor is completely clear of any sawdust, the first coat of stain or clear base primer can then be applied. Alternatively a hard wax oil may be applied.
  • To achieve a long lasting, top class finish, it is recommended that 2-3 coats of lacquer is then applied, allowing adequate drying time between coats.  Some light sanding (and hoovering) may also be required.
  • Most lacquers can be walked on within a couple of hours but take about a week to cure out fully so be careful for a few days
