Stage 3: Our Floor Sanding & Restoration Process
Our Floor Sanding Machines
We pride ourselves on professional floor sanding & finishing!
GJP Floor Sanding Brighton pride ourselves on professional floor sanding & finishing. We only use the best German made “Hummel” and Swedish made “Bonner” sanding equipment, which includes a powerful vacuum system / dust extraction systems on these machines results in around 3-5% dust.
We Do Not Cut Corners
Our professional refinishers select the proper combination of sand papers needed for the job and do not cut corners Before we commence work we make sure there are no nails or staples above the surface of the wood. Any nails / staples are removed / hammered down, any loose boards are secured.
Our Floor Sanding Process
The Sanding Process. Dependent on the condition of the floor we start with a course abrasive, normally this would be a 40g but occasionally old wood floors can be badly stained, discoloured or covered in paint, in cases like this we would start with a 24g. This process cleans the wood of most dirt and paint but will leave it with a very course finish.
To make the wood floor totally clean, smooth and scratch free GJP Floor Sanding Brighton will apply the finer grades of abrasives finishing with a very fine 120g.
Please be aware floor sanding is reasonably noisy. All our Floor sanding specialists wear ear defenders and face masks.
If you live in a flat or semi-detached property it may be worth while informing your neighbours that you are having your floors restored. We keep noise to respectable hours and work between 9am-5pm.
Really pleased with the end result. Would highly recommend the company for their professional approach and high standard of workmanship.
Thanks it looks amazing. Well done to all the guys who did a splendid job on time. Cleared all rubbish aways as well. Highly recommended. – 30/11/2010
The work was carried out efficiently with a professional service. Where the job ended up being more complex that first envisaged the GJP team invested extra time to sort things out. We were very pleased with the work done. Rachael Atkinson 30/10/2010.
I should like to say that we are very impressed by the work done – the floor looks incredible and also the clear up job afterwards was very professional. There was no mess at all and it was dust free. (I’m not sure how you managed that). Oliver Gillespie 10/12/2010.
Stunning bamboo flooring beautifully fitted – really neat . Everything done to minimise stress & disruption. Polite friendly service from beginning to end. 100% satisfaction.
