YES. All dust and left over coatings are removed from premises. The home owner is responsible for the disposal of floor coverings, e.g. carpet/vinyl, unless arranged prior.

YES. Furniture removal is the responsibility of the home owner. Workers compensation insurance limits our ability to remove furniture prior to sanding.

YES. Power must be available inside premises connected to several different circuits.

YES. Minor/moderate floor repairs can be undertaken.

We generally recommend 48 hrs after floor is finished, before walking on in socks. 7-10 days after completion, furniture can be lifted and placed (water based coatings may allow for furniture the to be moved back into premises slightly sooner).

This will depend on a range of factors, including the type of timber flooring you have as well as its age and condition. In many cases, timber floor sanding and polishing can restore flooring to a like-new condition, although if your floors have incurred significant wear and tear, replacement may be necessary.

Yes, if your timber flooring is scratched, Precice Floor Sanding can help restore its appearance. Floor sanding is able to get rid of deep scratches in timber, after which polish is applied to ensure a spectacular finish.

The cost of floor sanding and polishing can vary according to a range of different factors, including the floor’s condition, the type of timber, and the total area of flooring requiring sanding and polishing.

Generally no. Timber flooring installers use specialist nail guns, adhesives etc, some of which are not available to the public. Moisture barrier systems need to be put in place by experts especially when laying over concrete. Pre finished flooring though can easily be installed using a DIY system. We are also happy to install any good quality flooring you have purchased elsewhere.

A newly finished floor may be walked upon after initial drying but some precautions are necessary until the coating system has fully hardened and this may take in the order of two weeks. It is recommended not to lay rugs on your floor during this period. Furniture protection pads should be attached to the feet of tables and chairs etc and furniture such as chairs should be lifted. Ensure that heavy items cush as fridges are moved carefully into position and at no time should they be dragged over either newly finished or fully cured floors. Furniture with castor wheels will also damage your floor over time.

We sure can! If you present us with a floor plan with the correct measurements, we can draw up an accurate quote for you. As soon as you have decided on a particular type of flooring, we can provide a quote within 30 minutes.

We can only give you an estimated quote because we won’t have prior access to the floor and have no way of determining if additional repairs are needed.

The time-frame is highly dependent on a number of factors such as the size and scope of the project, the type of products you have selected and delivery of the products from our suppliers.

We will endeavour to accommodate your requested start times and we have many tradesmen employed by All Flooring Solutions which enables us to meet your requirements.

As most coating systems require overnight dry times the usual job will be a minimum of two/ three days. This time frame may be extended depending on the size of the job. As an estimate, we are able to sand on average 50 square meters / day. Remember to add the time for the coats to be applied and dry after that.

Remove all existing floor coverings including tacks, staples and any smooth edge carpet strips from the floor.   Remove all furniture, curtains, blinds, appliances, food items and wall hangings. Even though dust from the sanding will be reduced with the modern equipment we use, some dust will be unavoidable.  Hence, it might be best to shut doors to the other parts of the house and/or cover furniture or equipment if applicable.

No, we take and dispose of all dust bags, used material, paint containers etc.

Providing your floor has not been water damaged or damaged by others, your floor is guaranteed to out last you and generations to come.

Most timber floors require minimum maintenance if they are looked after correctly.

Generally, a damp (not wet) mop does the trick. Simply add ½ cup of methylated spirits to a bucket of hot water and ensure that the mop is wrung out completely.

For oiled floors, never use water. Follow the manufacturer’s specifications for these surfaces.

There are a number of measures you can take to protect your new timber floor: Do not let people walk on your floor with high-heeled shoes; tape felt pieces underneath furniture corners and chair legs; and do not let removalists drag furniture or white goods across your floor.

If you want your new timber floor to look the very best it can, it is imperative that there are no trades working on your site while your floor is being installed. Silicone on the footwear of plumbers and glaziers can cause problems and there is a risk your timber could be damaged.

Carpet should not be laid until at least 24-hours after the final coat has been applied to your timber, as the fibres can float through the air and land on the timber as it is drying.

You must plan at least 24-hours before you move back into your house.
