Mr. Sander is renowned for providing exceptional floor sanding services to a diverse range of commercial clients. Our expertise extends to:

Assessing the condition of commercial wooden floors is a critical step in the floor sanding and restoration process. It involves a thorough examination to determine the extent of wear, damage, and the overall health of the wood. This assessment helps in devising a customized approach for each project, ensuring the best possible outcome.

During the evaluation, experts look for various signs:

  1. Wear and Tear: Common in high-traffic areas, wear and tear can manifest as scratches, dents, or worn down finish. This is particularly noticeable in entryways, hallways, and areas with heavy furniture.
  2. Stains and Discoloration: These could be due to water damage, spills, or prolonged exposure to sunlight. Stains can penetrate deep into the wood, requiring specialized treatment.
  3. Board Integrity: Checking for loose, warped, or creaky boards is essential. These issues can indicate underlying problems like moisture damage or foundational shifts.
  4. Finish Condition: The state of the existing finish (varnish, lacquer, etc.) is assessed to determine if a simple refinish is adequate or if complete sanding and reapplication are necessary.
  5. Historical Value and Aesthetics: Especially relevant in older buildings, where preserving the floor’s historical character while enhancing its durability is crucial.

Professionals also consider the type of wood and grain patterns, as different species have varying hardness levels and react differently to sanding and finishing processes.

Our Sanding Process: Step-by-Step

The sanding process for commercial wooden floors is a meticulous and systematic procedure designed to restore the beauty and extend the life of the flooring. Here is a step-by-step guide to the sanding process:

  1. Preparation of the Area:
    • Remove furniture, rugs, and any other items from the floor.
    • Ensure the area is clean and free from dust and debris.
    • Seal off the area to prevent dust from spreading to other parts of the building.
  2. Initial Assessment:
    • Inspect the floor for any loose boards, nails, or other irregularities.
    • Repair or replace damaged areas as necessary.
  3. Rough Sanding:
    • Begin with a coarse-grit sandpaper to remove the old finish, stains, and major imperfections.
    • Use a drum sander or similar heavy-duty sander for this stage.
    • Sand in the direction of the wood grain to avoid scratches.
  4. Intermediate Sanding:
    • Switch to a medium-grit sandpaper to smooth out the rough surface created by the first sanding.
    • This stage helps in further flattening the floor and removing any remaining old finish.
  5. Fine Sanding:
    • Use fine-grit sandpaper for the final sanding pass.
    • This stage is crucial for achieving a smooth, even surface, and preparing it for finishing.
  6. Edge Sanding:
    • Use an edge sander to work on the areas close to walls and corners where the larger sander cannot reach.
    • Ensure consistency in smoothness between the main floor area and edges.
  7. Detail Sanding:
    • For intricate areas or hard-to-reach spots, hand sanding or a small orbital sander can be used.
    • This ensures a uniformly smooth surface throughout the entire floor.
  8. Cleaning Up:
    • Thoroughly vacuum the floor to remove all sanding dust.
    • Wipe the floor with a tack cloth or a slightly damp mop to catch any remaining dust.
  9. Final Inspection:
    • Examine the floor for any missed spots or uneven areas.
    • Address any issues before moving on to the finishing process.
  10. Application of Finish:
    • Apply the chosen finish (varnish, lacquer, oil, etc.) by the manufacturer’s instructions.
    • Multiple coats may be needed, with adequate drying time between each coat.

  • Pine floorboards (Victorian & Georgian)
  • Parquet
  • Cork
  • Granwood
  • Engineered wood flooring
  • Solid Wood Floors
  • Bamboo
