You should also take a look at the finishing techniques that are used on the floors. Most professionals will use a stippling system where small sandpaper circles are pressed together, stippled onto a plate. It gives the floor a raised pattern, then raised and stapled together to give the finished product.

There are different types of timber flooring that you might want to consider, which means that there are different types of sandpaper that professional floor sanding services will need to use. For hardwood floors, the usual product that is used is the Bernina abrasive. It is a very fine-grained abrasive that will give your floors a nice golden brown finish. If you have a composite floor, such as a concrete one, you will need to sand your wooden floor using a product known as polymeric sand.
To have the best results from the hardwood floor sanding Adelaide services you choose, you should also use the right polishing agents to give your floors the shine you desire. If you have hardwood flooring, such as oak, you should use a polyurethane polish with a matching oil base. This type of polish is great for both the floor and the surroundings. For other finishes, such as those made from linoleum, it is recommended that you use a good quality polishing compound that will help get the shine back into the flooring.
With hardwood, especially oak, there is always the risk that you will snag or cut yourself on the rough edges of the boards. Therefore, it is extremely important to ensure that you use the correct sandpaper when doing your hardwood refinishing. If you do not, you risk nicking your finger and causing permanent damage.
