Our Residential Floor Sanding Process

Our residential floor sanding process begins with a coarse angle cut using the advanced Galaxy floor sander. This initial step effectively removes excess dirt and buildup, bringing the timber floor back to its bare, natural state. To ensure an even surface, we repeat this step using medium-grade sandpaper, angled in the opposite direction. This meticulous approach guarantees a smooth and pristine finish, ready for further refinement and polishing.

Detailed Floor Sanding and Polishing Process

  • Floor sanding starts with a coarse angle cut with the Galaxy floor sander to remove excess dirt or build up & bring the timber floor back to bare timber. We repeat this step with medium grade sandpaper angled back the other way.
  • Then your timber floor requires a medium grit Trio to get the floor 30% flatter than belt sanding alone.
  • We then use a fine sandpaper on the Galaxy in the direction of the grain to remove any cross-grain scratches.
  • The next cut is with a fine Trio to remove any chatter marks left by the drum sander.
  • To finish, FLOOR uses an Australian Polivac and an American Square Buff to finely finish the timber floor.
  • We then apply the first coat, which is a quick dry, timber sealer.
  • The 2nd coat is either a UV Rush or a non toxic, natural water based coating.
  • The final coat is a Super tough, commercial grade, UV Rush. See UV Rush or Home Hybrid below.

Floor Sanding Brisbane FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions About Floor Sanding in Brisbane

  • Timber floor sanding is the process of removing the top layer of a wooden floor's surface.
  • It is typically done to remove scratches, dents, or stains on the surface of the wood.
  • The process involves the use of a specialized machine called a floor sander.
  • The sanding is done in several stages, using increasingly fine-grit sandpaper.
  • After sanding, the floor is often stained or sealed to protect the wood and enhance its natural colour.
  • It is typically carried out by a professional flooring contractor.
  • The result is a beautiful, smooth, and durable wooden floor.

Timber floor polishing is the process of applying a protective coating to a wooden floor's surface to enhance its appearance and protect it from wear and tear. The process involves cleaning the floor, staining (optional), and applying a protective coating, which can range in glossiness depending on the desired appearance. This process can be completed by a professional flooring contractor, as it is a time-consuming process that requires careful application and drying time. The benefits of timber floor polishing include protecting the wood from damage, enhancing its natural beauty, and increasing its longevity.

It depends on the size and what coating you choose. Price is based per square meter. The cheapest option is a chemical 2-pack polyurethane. This is the old way of creating a glossy, polished finish. The downside is the toxic smell and old-fashioned glossy look. Water-based polyurethane has no toxic smell, but it is a bit softer than the chemical version. The water-based coating also costs more. The finish looks much nicer and more modern though and it is worth it. Staying away from toxic chemicals is also a good idea. Tougher, longer-lasting coatings like UV-cured Polyurethane are more expensive than home-grade water-based polyurethane. But the commercial-grade durability makes it an excellent option for commercial spaces. Additionally, since UV-cured technology cures the coating at the speed of light (literally), there is minimal downtime. We offer a hybrid version of the UV-Cured finish which is very popular because it is more durable than the water-based polyurethane but cheaper than the full UV-Cured finish. Most of our customers are choosing this hybrid coating now.

It depends on the size, but usually 2 days. The first day is spent preparing the floor, sanding it back and applying the first two coats. The next day we apply the final coat. Keep in mind though, that if you choose the chemical or water-based coatings, you’ll need to wait a while before you can walk on the floor again. Whereas, with the UV-Cured coatings, you can move back in immediately after we have finished.

Staining is the process of applying colour, or stain, to the timber. The price is based per square meter and is an additional cost to the floor sanding and polishing. In most cases, staining will cost an additional $33 per square meter.
