Wooden floor maintenance

Every building has floors, and they are mostly wooden. Let us tell you about the renovation of wooden floors. It is natural that wooden floors will become worn over time, mechanical damage may appear, polished floors can become darker. When you buy an old house, floors may have 3-4 layers of paint. It is important not to think about renewing these old floors too hastily.

What tool do I need to buff floors?

There are plenty of companies who could buff your floor, but you can do it yourself. You can borrow or hire the necessary tools. The wheel sander would be the main tool for this work. However this tool will not buff close up to the wall or into the corners, so you should use a corner sander. You will also need sandpaper. Using the best quality sandpaper will ensure the best results.

Before buffing

Floor planks are fastened down by hammering nails into the grooves, so before starting your work, check where those nails are fastened. If they are protruding from the plank, we could bed them in so that the wheel sander does not touch them, otherwise you could damage the paper or even the wheel.

Process of the work

First of all you have to get rid of the old finishing layer. Rough paper (16-40) would do that. When you switch on the wheel sander, you should set down the wheel as the machine starts to move. It is important to pick up the wheel before stopping or changing direction. A wheel sander can cause holes or buff unevenly causing the final result to be unsatisfactory. The ideal buffing process is achieved by holding the sander at 20-45 degrees along the wood plank. The last grinding stage is polishing. We use softer paper (120-150) for that. Check that there are no missing knots and that the wood is not cracked before polishing. Use a wooden cork or filler to fix the damage. If you are using filler, wait until it dries. Constantly check sanding paper during the process. Clean all dust from the entire surface when you are finished.

Next, lacquering. We will talk about this procedure more in our future articles.
