    Floor Sanding Essex FAQs

    What is floor sanding and why is it important?

    Floor sanding is the process of refinishing and rejuvenating an existing wood floor by sanding it down to remove any scratches, dents, or imperfections. It is an important process because it can help to restore the natural beauty of the wood and make it look new again. It can also help to protect the floor from further damage and extend its lifespan.

    What types of floors can be sanded?

    Most types of wood floors can be sanded, including solid wood, engineered wood, and parquet. However, certain types of wood or finishes may not be suitable for sanding, so it is important to consult with our professional floor sanding company to determine if your floor can be sanded.

    How is the sanding process carried out?

    Generally, the sanding process typically involves the following steps:

    1. Preparing the floor: This includes removing any furniture or rugs from the room, repairing any damaged areas, and vacuuming and cleaning the floor.
    2. Sanding the floor: The floor is sanded using a drum sander, which removes the top layer of the floor to expose the raw wood. The sanding process typically starts with rough grit sandpaper and progresses to a finer grit.
    3. Finishing the floor: After the sanding is complete, the floor is finished with a wood stain or sealer to protect it and give it the desired colour.

    How long does the sanding process take?

    The length of time it takes to sand a floor depends on the size of the room, the condition of the floor, and the desired finish. On average, a standard room can take anywhere from a few hours to a full day to sand. Please ask us for a quote, as this will depend on your project.

    Is floor sanding messy?

    Floor sanding can be a messy process, as it generates a significant amount of dust and debris. However, our professional floor sanding company will take steps to minimize the mess and clean up after the job is complete.

    How much does floor sanding cost in Essex?

    The cost of floor sanding in Essex can vary depending on the size of the room, the condition of the floor, and the desired finish. It is best to get a quote from our professional floor sanding company in Essex in order to get a more accurate estimate.

    Advantages of Floor Sanding

    We have seen the popularity of floor sanding in Essex grow, mainly due to the number of benefits that comes with using this technique to bring your wooden flooring to life.

    Tailormade to your tastes

    We will work alongside you to ensure that the flooring you receive is the flooring that you wanted. Our floor sanding in Brentwood comes highly-recommended by our clients and, whether you choose to finish your floor with lacquer or varnish, the whole process can be customised to your exact needs.

    Endures over time

    If you properly take care of your wooden flooring, it can provide much greater levels of protection against wear and tear for years to come. Particularly useful in areas where footfall is high, wooden flooring can last for up to 50 years if maintained properly.

    Saves and makes you money

    Wooden flooring is a guaranteed way of saving and making you money in the long term. Rather than replacing a worn floor entirely, you can opt to have it sanded to reveal its original character which can add value to your property if done correctly!

    Allergen free and easy to maintain

    Wooden flooring is a top choice for allergy sufferers as it doesn’t retain allergens in the way other flooring types might. It is also easy to maintain and is more resilient to odours and stains, meaning that your space will stay cleaner for longer.

    Mess free

    At Barfords, we use dust-free methods of floor sanding to ensure there’s little cleaning up needed once we complete the works. Not only this, but the chemicals that we use are non-toxic, so your property is safe from the moment we leave.

    Alan & co restored our 1970s teak parquet lounge floor expertly, unphased by unpleasant surprises after the carpet was lifted to reveal paint splats, screeding & a concrete section which must've been the old fireplace, eventually replacing this section with mahogany, as the closest match, as teak is no longer available. Well pleased with results!

    Alan and Mark restored our near 70 year old lounge and hallway parquet flooring, which had been covered by carpets for many years. The work was completed on time, and it now looks like a new floor. Both very polite, friendly and professional, they certainly know their trade.

    Barford Contractors LTD laid oak parquet in our hallway and two front rooms. Throughout the process the communication was great and they were very receptive to our feedback and went the extra mile to make the flooring how we wanted it. Alan, Mark and Gareth were here just over a week and they were really friendly and polite. The floors look incredible and we would highly reccomend them as they delivered exactly what we wanted and the service was spot on.

    Alan provided a detailed quote for both wooden floors in our village hall to sand and re-seal and apply lines for a badminton court. The work was carried out meticulously and he kept me fully informed of progress and was more than happy to answer my questions. Very pleased to recommend his company.
