Dublin Floor Sanding uses some of the most powerful , dustless , floor sanding machines . Using those machines we can complete any size job in very little time with a minimum dust graine lost.
Why shoukd you sand your floors?
Just like any type of floor , the wood floors , come pre - glazed with a sealant for protection against wear off and spilages. This protection can last long time or short time , it all depends on traffic . Shops , schools , pubs , etc will require floor sanding done more often than a private house. Saying that , a house with few kids and few pets could also require sanding each year.
When you start noticing patches or discolorations on your floors then you know is the time for floor sanding. Depending on the area that you want done we will recommend to account for 2 days work. This is for domestic . Commercial jobs will require more time - depensing on size and the type of wood. Ignoring those signs will only cost you more in the long run. After the protection coat wear off your floor will start absorbing moist , dirt and it will mark very easy. Longer it stays like that , deeper we need to go when we will sand the floor.
So what happend when floor sanding starts?
We will drop around your home/business with a van full of tools. We will remove all the furniture and whatever is on the floors and then after we will agree what type of staining & varnish will be used we will start sanding your floors. Depending on the condition of your floor we can start with 0.40 grit sand paper or 0.80 grit sand paper. 0.28 grit sand paper will only be used when doing floor sanding on floors full of glue or paint. After the first sanding we will asses the floors. If gap filling or any repairs will be needed this is the time to do it.
The next operation is 0.80 grit sanding. The whole place will be sanded again. After the 0.80 grit we will go to 100 grit . Then 120 grit and the last operation 150 grit sand paper. As you can see , floor sanding is not such a easy job. Or cheap. After the floor sanding is done we will apply the staining - if required. This operation will require 12-24 hours drying times. The next operation is varnishing. There are few types of varnish that we work with. 3 coats of varnish later and one more light sanding your floors will be completed.
Floor sanding - picking the right varnish:
Dublin Floor Sanding only works with Bona varnishes. The strongest varnish from Bona is Bona Traffic. This type of varnish is waterbase and coes with a strong hardener. I gets very hard. Thys type of varnish is for commercial work only. Most of the times. Private houses dont require such a hard varnish. For the domestic market there are few types of varnishes from Bona that come in gloss , satin or mat finishes. Most of the people would pick satin finish.
Floor Sanding - The Staining
Picking the staining could be a fun job. We will show you what we have and if you are not happy with it we can mix up colors until we reach the right tone. Adding staining to your floors it will cost extra. It takes about 24 hours to dry and is a extra expense. The price we usual provide for standard floor sanding it does not include staining. After the staining was done and the floor is dry we will apply the varnish.
Floor Sanding - Costs
We usual price per square meter/foot . Bigger the job cheaper the cost per meter/foot. For bigger commercial jobs we can also price per job. The price per job can vary. 10 square meter job can cost 200€ or 500€. The condition of the floor , the type of wood and the fnish on the floor will make up the price. Using a very hard varnish will require much more sand paper to get rid of it so the price will go up. Most of the companies would have a basic rate per foot/meter that can change with the costs increasing.
Why is floor sanding so expensive?
One thing is for sure , you cant afford cheap floor sanding. Our company is hired on a regular basis to repaire floors aftef the floors were sanded by the owner of the property or by chancers. Only after you will see a bad job done you will realise how important is to know what you are doing. Here is the tools and materials needed to complete your job:
-a big sander
-few small sanders
-sand paper 0.28, 0.40, 0.60, 0.80 , 100, 120 & 150
Floor sanding is not cheap so you should expect to pay anything between 15€ to 25€ per square meter. If you are charged under those prices you should be suspicious.
All our floor sanding specialists are fully trained , polite and very professional. Our company is fully insured and we only charge after the job was completed. We will invoice you and you can pay s cash , cheque or online payments.

I own a property service company and I do a lot of work for many estate agents. We find many floor sanding jobs – some small and some big. We haven’t been able to find a great floor sanding company for the past few years. Most of the local floor sanding contractors want big commercial jobs and are avoiding small /medium size jobs. In fairness some of our jobs would be small , a kitchen , a corridor , a living room , etc but we are business people and we understand that everybody has to make money so we are willing to pay a bit extra per square meter for smaller jobs. Here is what we will require:
-dustless floor sanding machines
-floor sanding insurance
You need to be able to do staining as well beside floor sanding and sometime you might have to do night work. We will pay fair prices and we will pay within 24 hours if the job done 100%.

I have just purchased a house in Dundrum area. This house has solid wood floors in the lower part. Those floor boards use to be covered with carpets and there is some residue on it. I was told that those floors cannot be sanded but after a bit of research online I found that many people had it sand it and stain it. We would like you to drop around and see if you think you can do anything with it.
The house was build in 1920s and we heard that the floor sanding machines are very noisy and though on the walls. Is that true? There is some old type of plastering all over the house and we will like it kept intact.
I am not sure if this can be done , but I would like to darken up to floors , mahogany or something similar. Can you do that? We heard that floor sanding can be very expensive so I just wonder if you charge per square foot or per job. Do you have any floor sanding reviews that we can contact? Sorry to ask so many questions but this is the first time we ever had work done and for us is a big deal. We know nothing about floor sanding but we heard some very negative stories about people floors being damaged forever.
The last thing, are your floor sanding machines dustless? The house is empty anyway but we don’t want all the plastering covered in inches of dust.
Can you drop around this weekend?

Need pricing . We have few other estimates but the prices look mad. Very hard to get a good floor sanding company those days. Much more work available for the right company.
