FLOOR POLISHING AND SANDING PROCESS
As both a floor polisher and floor sanding company, we can take care of your residential or commercial floors from start to finish.
Our professional floor sanders and polishers follow a strict procedure to ensure quality floor services and outcomes. The first step is to prepare the floor, removing any old floor coverings, obstacles and furniture. At Moreton’s, we inspect the area for any holes, unevenness or scratches and assess whether a floor sanding job is necessary. If yes, we begin the floor sanding process.
After our Brisbane floor sanding professionals have finished, we can start to polish timber floors. We apply a suitable floor polish or sealant to the entire floor and spread it evenly across the surface, ensuring complete coverage. We can give you the satin finish or gloss finish you desire.
Whether you need a floor sander or a floor polisher, Moreton’s has you covered across Brisbane and broader South East Queensland. Get a free quote below to see how we can help you.
OUR FINISHING OPTIONS FOR TIMBER FLOOR POLISHING
The variety of finishes available for timber floor sanding and polishing can be confusing to many consumers, including hard wax oils, oil modified urethanes, solvent and waterborne polyurethanes. The most popular options to complete timber floors are water and solvent-borne finishes due to their low maintenance and resistance to wear. As the number one provider of timber flooring services Brisbane-wide, Moreton’s can assist you with the perfect finish for your home or professional space.
With major development and access to world-leading products, waterborne finishes are making a large impact on the Australian market. Waterborne polyurethane was generally selected for use due to its low odour and quick drying times. Now it is selected for its optimal adhesion, minimal side bonding, clarity, extremely good resistance to wear and chemicals along with its well-known low odour and quick drying times. Water-borne coatings will darken slightly with age. Waterborne finishes are replenishable with a maintenance coat when required. The advantages of this product have now overcome the higher cost associated with the product which we now see reflected in the growing request for these products.
SOLVENT BORNE POLYURETHANE
The most common flooring finish with its characteristic full body gloss, grain-enhancing warmth, long wearing and a smell that will take your head off has been the mainstay of the flooring industry for many years. However, its popularity is slowly dropping due to a growing demand for a more environmentally friendly finish and a shift away from the high gloss finish that requires almost daily cleaning. The low cost and true high gloss of the product will ensure that it keeps a share of the market.
HARD WAX OILS
Hard wax oils are made of a combination of vegetable oils, natural resins, beeswax and the least aggressive solvents available. The oil and wax combinations are made on a base of natural, sustainable raw materials including linseed oil, sunflower oil, jojoba oil, beeswax, carnauba and candelilla wax.
Hard wax oils are micro-porous which allows the timber to breathe, this means climate changes are accommodated. The full body finish does not create a skin so each board can move individually without the concern of edge bonding. They will not flake, blister or peel and tend to be non-yellowing. The hard wax oils will enhance the grain of the timber, all while keeping the natural timber feel. Hard wax oils are replenishable with a maintenance coat.
Direct staining timber flooring using a spirit-based stain will dramatically change the colour and shading of the floor. The process involves preparing the flooring up to the coating stage, then applying one or multiple coats of the selected colour until the depth and of the colour are satisfactory. The floor is then left to dry and the following day the selected coating system is applied. Advantages of direct staining are a continuous even colour across the floor with the individual grain and character still being visible through the coating. This process can be expensive if a large area is to be stained.
TINTING & LIMING
Liming timber floorboards or parquetry can give a uniquely different look and feel to a common timber floor or create a real beach house feel. This is an alternative to using a direct dark stain to hide replaced floorboards. For example, by staining the floor white, a traditional smaller Queenslander can be opened up and take on a lighter feel.
