For those of us living in the Brisbane area the choice of timber floorsanding carried out on our floors has many positives.
Timber flooring is a natural hard wearing surface which when maintained and kept clean avoids carrying dust and allergens which can promote respiratory problems. When compared to ceramic tiles timber floors create five times less carbon emissions.
Timber makes a feature of your floor and will outlive you if properly maintained. Polished floors exude an appearance of quality matched by no other floor coverings.
With correct coatings choices and regular cleaning timber floors will last for many years before recoating will become necessary. And even when it does become necessary the cost involved is far less than replacing carpet which begin to look worn, in many cases after five years or so.
Similarly, the coatings on many pre-finished floors are very wear resistant and these products can also be sanded back and refinished to provide a new life to your floor.
