Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I stay in my house while the floors are being sanded?

A: In many circumstances you can, however, depending on the products being used, it is generally safer to stay out until the final coating is dry.

If you have no option but to stay, we can generally accommodate those requirements if you let us know.

A: All floor sanding creates dust. All our machines are fitted with vacuums and our process incorporates strategies which minimize the amount of dust created. We dust down before coating as a general rule.

A: We use a wide range of finishes ranging from completely natural Organ oil right through to hard wearing Polyurethane. We offer Water Based, Oil Based, Solvent Based and Tung oil as well as some others.
