Wood Sanding and Oiling

1.  PREPARATION OF THE FLOOR BEFORE SANDING

We will inspect the floor to ensure all nails are well below the wood surface. All loose board will be secured before sanding commence. 

2. HIGH-FILTRATION VACUUM

Removal of dry soil and particles that might cause damage to the floor during the sanding process.

3. SANDING OF THE MAIN FLOOR AREA

The system we use is 95% dust free as we use an advanced extraction system. Different grit values on the bell sander will ensure a quality finish.

4. EDGES AND DETAILED SANDING 

Our edging sander delivers a uniform finished to all edges and hard to reach places under fixes furniture and radiators.

5. FINAL FINISHING: ROTARY SANDING

A super fine grit sanding system will deliver a superior and even finish to the whole floor area. This is done by means of a rotary sander.

6. FINE DUST REMOVAL

Highly efficient vacuum system is used for the thorough removal of any dust particles from the freshly sanded wooden floor.

To preserve the wood as best as possible we would re-sand and finish your floors using Pallmann product.

 

The application process we will use:

 

Two applications of hard wax oil on your wooden floor will deliver a beautiful natural finish that is moisture and dirt resistant.

Be aware that it will take up to 4 hours* for the floor to cure enough to allow light foot traffic. Furniture can only move back 24 hours* after foot traffic has commenced. (Avoid at all cost dragging furniture on a  freshly oiled floor surface.)

What are the benefits of hard wax oil:

- Extremely low VOC


- Easy to apply and easy to repair

(if one area is worn, we don’t need

to sand the whole room, just sand

the concerned area and the oil will

be re-applied and blended in.)


- Excellent permeation


- Natural look finish


- Hard resistance


- Shorter application time (meaning you get access to your floors much quicker)

By choosing a Pallmann applicator /contractor you are automatically covered by the Product Support Pallmann offers to their trained applicators. This covers our clients and ourselves against the product failing.
