Posted on July 24, 2023

Floor Sanding Blogs

Hello house-proud people, decorating DIYers and professional painter and decorators! Welcome back to a fresh month of great blogs, ideas and inspiration from all over the web. Each month the Mr Sander® team are busy helping keep real wood floors in prime condition, but we also like to keep up with new trends and handy tips all about flooring in general. Stand by as we raid our bookmarks bar to serve up our favourite monthly posts in today’s Daily Grind.

This month: Learn how to give laminate flooring a proper clean in just three minutes, discover the latest mix and match wood flooring trend and find out which low maintenance flooring option could be right for you.

Laminate Flooring: The 3 Minute Clean


We may be real wood floor sanding experts, but we can appreciate the beauty of a good quality laminate imitation. We can also appreciate the mixed information householders receive about keeping it clean – just like real wood care there’s a lot of confusion out there, with everyone seeming to have their own approach which often falls just slightly short of the mark. This helpful three minute read from BSB Flooring will give you the official run-down from the people in the know, with plenty of helpful pointers to keep your laminate looking as lovely as the day you bought it. Handy stuff – thanks guys!

What is the Best Low Maintenance Flooring Option?


Time is money. We all know that. We also know how important it is to have a bit of R and R on a regular basis. That’s why, for many people, low maintenance is just as important as beauty and quality when it comes to flooring. We maintain that with quality upkeep, even real wood flooring can be low maintenance (especially since it doesn’t need replacing every seven years), but for many people – Perfecto Flooring included – there are better options for home-owners who don’t want to handle the upkeep. Check out their recommendations for low maintenance flooring and see whether you agree!

Mix & Match – The Latest Wood Flooring Trend


It’s not always easy to choose a wood for your flooring. Would oak look better? What about maple? But then again, ash has its merits…The latest trend in wood flooring means you don’t have to choose, you can have a little bit of everything! Perfect for creative spaces and homes which house rooms with distinct themes, the mix and match look is an inspiring departure from the stuffy status quo. Wide Plank Flooring introduce the concept in their latest blog.
