There some established good practices when it comes to having a wooden floor sanding Perth. The need for a lot of experience when it comes to the use of workers and people that can work with floors can be compensated by sticking to some strict methods of application, both in mind as well as physically.
The common steps in having a floor sanding Perth well done
- The first step to having a new or a re-flooring work is to remove any matter that would be sticking to the surface. This is most conveniently done by use of a coarse sand paper if the area is relatively small or the use of a sanding machine with a larger surface area. The coarseness is reduced gradually to a finer surface of application, leaving the surface smooth and without dents.
- In case of a new floor, there is of course the need to apply resins to make the surface smooth and even as odd dents and pits need to be filled in. It is habitual for re-flooring efforts to encounter small bits of the floor missing and at times damaged. A proper application of the resin is usually enough to bring most damaged surfaces to its former glory at a reasonable cost.
Complete removal of an old floor is attempted only if the surface is damaged heavily or that a new look needs to be introduced by applying a different wooden surface all together.
- In the olden days of varnishing, it proved to be quite a task with the workers needing to be working in the fumes for close to weeks on end. But the introduction of water based varnishes that reduces or altogether removes the solvents has enabled the application and use of the varnishes in a more acceptable and hospitable atmosphere.
The use of improved varnishes that does away with the need to apply several layers for the best looks has also been done away with. It is now possible to have a deep hue all done with the application of just a single coat of the varnish.
The convenience of the water based varnishes
With the water based varnishes, it is not just the need to apply fewer layers but the convenience of applications as well. The quick drying feature would have a coat dry and ready for reapplication in a matter of minutes thus enabling four or five coats to be applied in a single day. This does conveniently cut down on time required and also the blessed absence of solvent fumes that need to be considered.
The water based dies have a superior gripping property that helps greater adhesion and a better absorption at all times. This is quite unlike the solvents that take a longer time drying and is more cumbersome to apply on a surface.
The progress in materials that are in use for varnishing and related activities only goes to emphasis the need to have safe practices at the work place even in floor sanding activities.
