5 Reasons Why Your Floor Sanding Project Should Be Done Professionally

If you are looking for the best results when it comes to your floor sanding project, you should hire a professional. Sure, there might be cheaper ways to do the work but they won’t always produce the results you are after. It is important that you know what type of flooring material needs to be sanded and how much work will need to go into it before hiring someone. If this sounds like something too complicated for you or if these tasks seem overwhelming then we encourage you to hire a professional! 

Here are some of the reasons why you should hire a professional to undertake your home’s floor sanding project:

  1. Quality of work completed

A professional can do a much better job than you will be able to. They have the skills, equipment and experience needed to make your floor look as good as new in no time at all.

  1. Mess & health issues

The process of sanding is pretty messy so if there are kids or pets around then it’s probably best not to undertake this task yourself! Let someone who knows what they’re doing take care of it instead. When amateurs use a floor sander, airborne dust particles are not only messy and can hurt the appeal of your finish, but they can also lead to underlying health issues for the people living in your home.

  1. Low risk

Lower the risk of potentially damaging your floors by hiring a hardwood professional. Not only are they less likely to make mistakes, but if mistakes are made, they will know how to fix them. We see time and time again homeowners undertake a DIY project, only to find out they’ve ended up with a much worse outcome than if they had hired professionals. Due to the complexity of sanding floors, hiring someone who knows what they are doing is an absolute must! You can be sure that your newly refinished floor will last for years longer when you hire somebody who has done it before! 

  1. Longevity 

Hardwood floors that weren’t sanded correctly can result in the stains not penetrating correctly. Meaning, that the finish will not last as long as if the job was completed professionally. This will shorten the lifespan of the finish on top of the flooring which will become an expense for you later down the track when you have to undertake the job again.

  1. Professional finish

Consider the fact that experience is not on your side and the already growing list of DIY projects you need to begin on against just having a team come in and complete it for you. Plus, the professionals’ experience will get the job done faster and look better than if you had taken it on yourself.

We understand that doing it yourself repairs can be advantageous, but some finishes and repairs are just more risky than others. Floor sanding is one of those that are highly recommended to be hired out. If you have any questions or concerns we are always here to help!
