Floor sanding may be very stressful for someone that is not prepared to handle big devices that sand the floors. Corners of the rooms in particular, are very difficult to sand, because they require a special set of skills that you may not have.
Also, floor sanding needs a bit of knowledge about heavy machinery, in general. If you are not used to handle it, it may seem like a titanic amount of work, especially since floor sanding machines are not on the small or light side. On the contrary, floor sanding machines are some of the biggest pieces of equipment necessary in house maintenance.
That is why, when you feel like it is time for some floor enhancement, you should think about hiring a professional floor sanding contractor. Don’t be scared, it is not expensive. Or, at least, not as expensive as you may think. The cost is calculated by square meter, and priced at about 5-10 euros. The advantage, though, of hiring a good floor sanding contractor goes beyond those euros.
Professionalism is something you will need to look for in their resume. Ask for a portfolio, or some recommendations. Experienced contractors are preferred, but don’t underestimate the beginners, either. They me be up to date to all the new technology that would make the work even easier.
For example, the new generation of floor sanding machines come equipped with a waxing option that allows them to sand, polish and was the wooden floors, in less than ten minutes per square meter. Quite astonishing, right?
Some of the older floor sanders may not be as actual, and this may cost you more time. Try and balance cost and efficiency when you’re looking for a floor sanding contractor, but also, check their previous wok, as much or as little as it is. It may give a hint about what they can do, and what kind of surfaces they have previously worked with.
