When decorating a property there are various considerations to be made, from the colour scheme to the furniture which will be included once the room has been completed. Another decision that needs to be made is regarding the floor surface. Here at Floor Sander Hire, we believe that nothing can offer the amount of warmth and sophistication to a room, whilst also increasing the value of the property, as well as a quality natural wooden floor which has been well maintained through the use of the floor sander hire we provide.

For over two decades, our team here at Floor Sander Hire have been providing customers not only with high quality sanders enabling them to get the most out of their oak floors; but also our knowledge and wisdom, to ensure that homes throughout Middlesex have stunning wooden floors.

One way we’ve found to ensure your wooden floor is protected once it’s been sanded is by sealing the floor with an application of floor varnish. Sealing your floor after sanding is an important process to go through, as it not only protects your wood from stains, scratches and marks; but it also brings out the natural colour of the surface.

Sealing your wooden floor is an easy job to do, once the surface has been sanded and by following our simple tips below, you’re guaranteed to not only get a fantastic finish, but also a well protected surface.

1.    When using any of our varnishes it’s important that the room is well ventilated, so make sure you open windows.

2.    Clean up any debris that’s been left from sanding.

3.    Use a regular paintbrush, and in long, even strokes apply the varnish – ensure that you go in the direction of the grain and that you use a generous amount of varnish, as the wood will absorb some of it.

When you contact us for our affordable floor sander hire or to purchase one of the quality wood varnishes we stock, our experienced and friendly team will be able to provide you with more detailed advice on how best to sand and protect your wooden floor.
