Every time we price a new job, commercial or residential, the main questions asked are how much dust and do we have to move out while the job is being done? Most people are not up to date with the latest innovations and technologies available within the floor sanding industry and the floor refinishing products. Things are much better than they used to be and nowadays a floor sanding project can be completed in a matter of hours instead of days as before and with very little disruption. Like everything else, the floor sanding industry is always improving and innovating.

 

Dustless Floor Sanding | Is it really dustless?

 

Would you call 98% dustless, dustless? Most people would. 100% dustless is not really possible yet but it will get there. Compared to what floor sanding used to be 30 years back, we can truly say that the new types of floor sanding machines are dustless. 30 years ago most floor sanding machines were just sanding away without collecting any of the dust generated. The problems with such systems never ended.

 

  1. Health Issues For The Machine Operatives  | Even if the wood does not contain a lot of harmful agents, breathing that fine dust cannot be good for the property owner or the machine user. Constantly breathing super fine dust particles can cause serious lung issues to develop over time. The dustless floor sanding technology has dramatically reduced such issues.

  2. Improved Air Quality | The same fine dust can go all over the property even if the floor sanding specialist has done everything he could to isolate the area. The dust could be harmful for the house occupants. Again, with a dust collection of over 98%, the dustless floor sanding trade has reduced the risk dramatically.

  3. Less Cleaning | If you ask any person that had their floors done a few years back, they will tell you the most annoying thing was the dust that seemed to never go and appeared from everywhere. Because the machines were generating so much dust, this dust was hiding everywhere. You could find dust under the skirting, the top of the furniture, between the floor gaps, on the walls and so on. By hiring a professional dustless floor sanding company you will have no cleaning to do after the project is completed. How great is that?

  4. Faster Results | Imagine a powerful floor sander generating tons of dust all over the place. The floor sanding specialist had to stop every few minutes to ventilate or vacuum. Such frequent stops were guaranteed to increase the job duration dramatically. A new dustless floor sanding machine that is fitted with a special dust filtration system is taking in all the dust and blowing out clean air. Outstanding.

  5. No Need For Plastic Sheeting | Imagine how long it takes to cover all the photos, lights, sockets, windows, beds, furniture, etc. It takes forever. No need for all that preparation any longer. Because the new dustless floor sanding machines are so great at filtering the dust, all these time consuming preparation jobs are no longer necessary. 

  6. Happy Customers | Imagine telling your customer that your machine does not collect any dust and after the project is completed it could take a few weeks of cleaning to get rid of all the dust. You would be unlikely to win that project. Now imagine that you can guarantee your customer that the place will be left as found, no cleaning required and super speedy results. You are likely to get the job.

 

If all of the above benefits of the dustless floor sanding technology have not convinced you to book us to sand and restore your floors, then wait until you find out more about our amazing water based floor lacquers, our amazing wood stains, gap fillers, hardwax oils, wood floor repairs, floor painting, stairs sanding & others.

As we mentioned above, the floor sanding industry is in a perpetual movement. Things are getting better, cheaper and easier to use. The same principle applies to the hardwood floor finishes. The new range of sealers and maintainers don’t even compare with the old ones. Products that do not generate any fumes, products that do not take forever to dry, products that can`t yellow, products that do not glaze but instead penetrate the wood and products that maintain the natural look of the wood. In other words, better quality products and low environmental impact.

 

Water Based Floor Lacquers

 

There are many types of wood floor finishes out there for all types of average, expensive and exotic wood fibers. But the lacquer is still one of the most widely used and most loved type of wood floor finish. Most professional floor sanding companies recommend floor lacquer as the main product for sealing commercial and residential wood floors and wood stairs. The floor lacquer is straightforward to use, it looks amazing and it provides years of uninterrupted protection. Also, the new water based floor lacquers used by the professional floor sanding trade are eco-friendly, have low environmental impact and maintain the natural aspect of the wood. 

 

  1. Low VOC Content | Remember how the old oil based floor lacquers used to generate so much odours and fumes? That’s all gone. While most of the water based floor lacquers are likely to release some VOC, the level of the VOC is dramatically less. In most cases, the property owners where the lacquer is used do not have to move out of the property. The low VOC content means a safer environment for the tradesman, the property owners and the environment.

  2. Responsibly Made | The old solvent or oil based floor lacquers were manufactured from oil based raw materials. The process of manufacturing was generating pollution, the process of applying it was generating pollution and the process of sanding was generating pollution. All these issues were pretty much erased by the invention of the water based floor lacquer. 

  3. Quick Drying Time | The drying periods were one of the most annoying issues of the old solvent based floor lacquers. The lacquer used to take up to 24 hours to dry between the coats. Applying 3 coats of floor lacquer used to be a 3 day experience, a time when the property owner had to move out and not be able to use the property. The new water based floor lacquers have solved that issue. Most professional water based floor lacquers are likely to dry in less than two hours and 3 coats of floor lacquer can be successfully applied in one day. These drying periods have speeded up the whole project and have reduced the costs for the contractors and the property owners dramatically. 

  4. UV Resistance | Another great and amazing improvement brought on by the water based floor lacquers is its UV resistance. Being UV resistant means that the floor lacquer is unlikely to become very yellow when the surface is exposed to direct sunlight. Because most water based floor lacquers do not contain any solvent, the UV light will not affect it. 

  5. Easy Refreshing & Easy Maintenance | A newly lacquered wood floor is likely to look amazing when done but it could wear off over time due to intense use and other factors. That is not a problem for the new water based floor lacquers because there are so many refreshers and floor polishes compatible with most water based floor lacquers. 1-2 coats of the refresher and the floor will look as new and it will be ready for another 12 months of traffic. Also, the wood floor maintenance and cleaning industry has also progressed. There are many types of specific wood floor cleaners that any lacquered wood floor owner will be spoilt for options. There are low PH wood floor cleaners, high PH floor cleaners and wood floor maintainers. All very affordable and highly concentrated.

  6. Easy Application | There is no way to apply water based floor lacquers wrong. Unlike the solvent based floor lacquers, the water based floor lacquers are very forgiving and will self level. This has made DIY applications fun. 

 

Below we will explain the difference between low traffic, medium traffic and very high traffic water based floor lacquers. We will also explain the difference between high solid floor lacquers and low solid floor lacquers. We will detail the whole process so you can be fully informed when you hire the services of a professional floor sanding specialist.

If you have contacted 3 floor sanding companies and asked about a free estimate, you probably know by now that there can be very high price variations between the contractors. For a 20 sq meters floor to be fully restored by a local floor sanding company you could be quoted 500 euro, 700 euro or up to 900 euro by some contractors. While in some cases the contractor could be aiming to make a quick profit, in most cases there is a good reason behind it. The main reason is the type of floor sanding technology used and the type of floor lacquer used. A 5 L drum of floor lacquer can cost anywhere between 25 euro to 250 euro depending on its solid content and if the lacquer is sold with a hardener. The solid content is the level of acrylic content contained by that lacquer. More solid content, better resistance to scratches and traffic. 

 

  1. Low Solid Content Floor Lacquers | A low solid content floor lacquer is a great product for some particular jobs. If you are lacquering doors, furniture, wall panels, benches, toys, etc, then there is no need to use a floor lacquer that is designed to protect industrial floors. A low solid content floor lacquer is ideal for all those projects that are re-done often and do not take intense traffic. The problems with low solid content floor lacquers start appearing when your local floor sanding company uses it to seal your high traffic hall or living room. Is just not made to take all that traffic. 

  2. Medium Solid Content Floor Lacquers | These lacquers are actually the most popular types of floor lacquers. An average medium solid floor lacquer will have between 15% to 30%. This type of lacquer is very durable and it will take all the heavy duty residential traffic and some light commercial traffic as well. The medium solid content floor lacquers are not suitable for heavy duty commercial or industrial use but besides that, it will work on pretty much any other type of floor, regardless of traffic.

  3. High Solid Content Floor Lacquers | Within this group of floor lacquers you will find all the heavy duty residential ones, all the commercial ones and all the industrial suitable floor lacquers. These floor lacquers can take intense footfall, harsh floor cleaners, will not scratch easily and will not really be affected by high heels or black marks. Not all high solid content floor lacquers are two packs (sold with a hardener) and in fact some of the most heavy duty floor lacquers ever are single pack. A high traffic floor lacquer with high solid content looks 100% like the low solid content floor lacquer so there is where the issues start when the floor sanding contractor hired does not use the right type of floor lacquer….

 

So a logical question would be, why make low solid content floor lacquers when such great high traffic floor lacquers are available? Well, there are a number of reasons, but the main one is the pricing. Assuming that you have 40 sq meters of floor to be lacquered with a cheaper lacquer, lets say 25 euro per 5L, it will cost you 75 euro to apply 3 coats of it. If you are looking for a top quality high solid and high traffic floor lacquer, it can cost you 750 euro for the same surface. Most people do not have that kind of money to pay for such expensive lacquers and in most cases they will settle for something in the middle.  Then there is the matter of not needing such a high traffic floor lacquer. If you are lacquering a standard bedroom with little or no traffic, any lacquer will do fine. So wasting hundreds of euros to lacquer a floor with little use using the most expensive floor lacquer is a waste of money. 

 

The only issue with the high traffic floor lacquers looking 100% the same as the cheap floor lacquers is the fact that some people that will pay for the premium lacquers will end up having their floors sealed with a cheaper one. Not the other way around.

Preparing for floor sanding services is an essential thing before you even start planning ahead. Most people are not aware what type of floor they own, what type of finish they want and if the wood floor is actually wood. In our opinion, you should contact your local floor sanding contractor and have your floors assessed. Your idea could only be an idea and impossible to do. A professional floor sanding contractor can advise you for free and at least you will know what can or can’t be done with your floors. 

 

  1. Carpeted Floors | There is a new trend now where many people will lift their carpets and restore the original floorboards that are under the carpet. In theory, there should be no issues but in practice there are always issues. Most pre 1980s houses had woodworms or central heating systems installed. Because the wood floors were hiding under the carpets, the plumbers were not careful enough to preserve the original floorboards. Some floorboards were chopped in pieces, others were damaged so badly that they were replaced with plywood or mdf. The wood worms that used to eat all that fancy wood away 50 years back might be dead by now, but in some cases the damage caused to the floorboards is too serious to be ignored. By lifting up a bit of a carpet in a corner you will never know if the whole floor is actually made from real wood so we recommend our customers to fully remove the carpet and then call Dublin Floor Sanding to assess their floors. Otherwise you could end up in a situation where the project is booked, the tradesmen are on the site and the floor is not sandable.

  2. Semi Solid Or Engineered Wood Floors | There is a myth out there that semi solid or engineered wood floors cannot be sanded. That is not the case at all. Laminate floors cannot be sanded but engineered wood floors are actually made from real wood. A semi solid wood floor or engineered wood floor is made from a base plank and a sheet of wood glued to the plank. Some semi solid wood floors that are on the cheaper side, might only have 2-3 mm of real wood while the most expensive ones could have up to 1.5 cm of real wood. The first job is to make sure that your floor is actually semi solid or engineered wood floor. Then the next job is to make sure that the floor was not sanded too many times before. Semi solid and engineered hardwood floors can only be sanded a limited amount of times. The very thin semi solid or engineered wood floors can only be sanded once or maybe twice while the thick engineered wood floors can be sanded a good few times.

  3. Is Your Wood Floor Real Wood? | There are a number of laminate floors and also Amtico floors that imitates wood to perfection. So before booking a project online and wasting the contractor’s time, make sure to be certain that your wooden floors are actually wooden floors. 

  4. The Furniture | Most people get so excited about the new floors that they forget about the furniture. The furniture removal is the property owner’s job. A floor sanding contractor might be happy to help you move a bit of furniture around but he will not carry all your beds and sofas around. So make sure to inform the contractor that there is a good amount of furniture around and maybe a solution can be found together. Do not just assume that the floor sanding specialist will deal with your furniture. Some floor sanding companies are actually charging a flat fee per hour to move the furniture. 

  5. Plan Ahead And Do Not Be in The Contractors Way | After the logistics of the job were agreed, you should not hang around the place. The contractors are using heavy duty floor sanding technology that can be very dangerous. Organize your pets as well. You cannot walk on the floors while the floor is being sanded and you cannot chat with the contractor while there is a lot of aggressive sanding going on.

Assuming that the rate for the project was fully agreed between the property owner and the floor sanding contractor, the job can move along. From this point on the process is straightforward and noticeable results will be visible within minutes. 

 

  1. Sanding | Depending on the condition of your floor and the type of floor finish that was used to seal it, the contractor will start sanding your floors from a rough grit sanding paper up to a fine finish. Most floor sanding contractors will start with 40 grit, move to 60, move to 80 then move to 100 grit before the first finishes will be applied. In some cases, the contractor can decide to start with 26 grit sanding paper and go up to 120 grit but no smoother than that because the floor will be too smooth to absorb wood finishes. The floor sanding contractor can choose to go through all those grits or he might skip a few and move from 40 to 80 grit. The idea is to remove the old finishes, scratches, imperfections & lippage and try to remove as little as possible from the base wood.

  2. Repairing | After the heavy duty floor sanding is done, the contractor can really see all the imperfections and all the issues that have to be resolved. This is a good time to replace whatever floorboards have to be replaced and to fix the moving boards into their fixed places.

  3. Gap Filling | The gap filling between the floorboards can be done after the repairs are fully done. One more fine sanding with 120 grit sanding paper will be done and that fine dust will be mixed with a special acrylic or solvent gap filler to create a semi wet cream that will be used to fill up the gaps. Filling the gaps is essential for floorboards with no base or for houses with no insulation. The gap can also be filled to prevent dirt from depositing inside the gaps or for aesthetic reasons. 

  4. Staining | After the gap filling job was completed and the floor was re-sanded, vacuumed and prepared for the final refinishing process, the contractor can prepare for staining. Staining the wood is a very important operation and the customer has to be consulted at every step to make sure that the colour matches their expectations. A wood stain is a wood colour that is applied to the wood before varnishing. There are hundreds of types of wood stains from many suppliers. The colour range is also wide and there are water based wood stains and solvent based wood stains. The stain itself is not a protector but only a colour. There will be 2-3 coats of floor lacquer applied over the wood stain. The wood stain can only be applied to the bare wood.

  5. Lacquering | The final step on the road to fully refinish your hardwood floors is the lacquering. The lacquer is the one that gets all the traffic and it protects the wood from water damage, chemical burns and deep scratches. The floor lacquer has to be applied in a 3 coats system. It can be done in a two coats system over a primer or three coats of floor lacquer without a primer. The floor lacquer should take around 1-2 hours to dry between the coats and the floor can be used on the same day.

  6. Oiling | Some people still prefer the natural look of the floor oils so instead of having their floors sealed with a single pack or two pack floor lacquer, they will go for a floor oil. There are a number of floor oils available, some natural, some hardwax oil, some sold with a hardener, some coloured, some will create the look of the lacquer while others will maintain the wood 100% natural. The main advantage of the floor oil is that it can be refreshed in areas without having to recoat the whole floor. The only main issue with the floor oils is the constant refreshments needed. All oiled floors have to be refreshed at least once per year to prevent water damage and permanent damages.

 

The process listed above is not always done in full or in that order. Some hardwood floors are getting sanded and varnished without any gap filling or staining, others are getting gap filled but not stained while others are getting the whole process. There are many other finishes compatible with hardwood floors but not as popular as the ones listed above.

Agree prices before even starting the job. Agree all details before giving the go ahead to your floor sanding contractor. Agree step by step the logistics of the job, who hires the skip if a skip is needed, what is included and what is not included, the estimated duration time and the type of finishes required. A sample of wood stain and some lacquer options should be presented to the customer before the final coats are done. Dealing with all those small details will save the property owner and the floor sanding contractor a lot of hassle after the job is completed.

 

A floor sanding project is a home improvement project and not an emergency project. So the finances should be in place before the job commences. All floor sanding contractors will expect full payment upon completion. All the materials, the equipment and the staff needed to complete a floor sanding project cost a lot of money.

Our Gap Fillers | The gaps between the floorboards were left there on purpose. In some cases the wood floor that is exposed now was not intended to be the main floor but instead a base for another floor so the gaps were left there for ventilation. In other cases the floors have moved and extended or retracted over a prolonged period of time and now the floor has gaps that accumulate dirt. In other cases the floor has chipped away for some reason and aesthetically it does not look right. Whatever the reason behind your floorboards gaps, we can definitely fill it up with our amazing gap fillers. A gap filler is a water based or a solvent based component that will be mixed up with fine wood dust generated from the sanding of your floor and then the composition used to fill up the gaps between the floorboards. The gap filler will dry nicely and after a quick re-sanding of the whole area, the surface will look spectacular while all the gaps will be fully filled. Dustless Floor Sanding uses some of the most flexible and most durable gap fillers.

 

  1. Chimiver Polifilm 10 Solvent Based Gap Filler | One of the most flexible and the most durable professional gap fillers from Chimiver. The product will fully dry within 30 minutes and it will dry the same colour as the floorboard itself.

  3. Bona Mix & Fill Plus | Probably the world’s most popular gap filler. It has a thick composition and it can easily fill up cracks and gaps between the floorboards.

Each brand and type of gap filler has its own unique advantages and its own disadvantages. But our floor sanding specialists will know what product to use to make sure that the gaps stay filled for as many years as possible.

 

Our Primers | The primer’s main job is to fill up all the pores of the wood and make sure that the floor lacquer is not absorbed and deposited at the bottom of the floor, to create a perfect smooth surface, to create a unique colour or to speed up the drying process. A primed floor will be smoother, it will absorb less lacquer and it will dry faster. Dustless Floor Sanding Dublin uses a number of floor primers from Chimiver and Tover. Some of our wood primers main jobs is to create a unique colour (white ash), to level up imperfections and to reduce absorption. Depending on the type of wood that we plan to seal, we will pick the most suitable wood floor primer.
