Tips To Sand Bamboo Flooring Before Staining

By: Jehan Putin Home | Business


Across households in Sydney, bamboo flooring is fast escalating the ladder of popularity. There is a range of reasons behind this rising popularity of bamboo flooring. A few of them are mold, dent, stain and mildew resistance. Even insects do not find the bamboo flooring much useful. So, these were some practical reasons behind their rising demand. Unfortunately, the lone problem for the dcor crazy homeowners is that they won’t get bamboo flooring in a range of shades. They primarily come in two shades †the lighter and deeper variety. Luckily, you can now stain the bamboo flooring in the color of your choice. In order to achieve this, you must sand the flooring first. Below is a list of steps that you would have to follow to sand the bamboo flooring material effectively.

â€Step 1: Due to the uneven texture of bamboo, you must sand the bamboo flooring first. Before you commence with the sanding part, it is essential to clean up the flooring. Basically, this means removal of the furniture that may be lying around in the room. When you sand the floor there will be large quantities of saw dust flying around, so protect your other rooms using plastic drop cloth or painter’s tape. You would need a carpenter’s pry bar; use it carefully to remove the baseboard material. This would help you in sanding the entire floor effectively.
â€Step 2: Use a square buff sander and start off with the extreme corner of the bamboo flooring. Pull the sander close to your body, so that there is even and constant pressure applied to the flooring. Sand along the length of bamboo and continue with this process till you’re done with two-third of the room. After that finish off the rest of the area with one pass at a time. You should have a palmer sander ready at hand for those areas that cannot be reached with a regular square buff sander. You need to sand the bamboo flooring thrice. Start off with the 100grit sandpaper, and then continue with the 120grit and 180grit sandpaper.
â€Step 3: You are almost done with the bamboo flooring sanding; it is now ready to be stained in the colors of your choice. A push broom having soft bristles should be used to sweep the saw dust. Pile up the saw dust in one corner of the room. Later, use a vacuum cleaner to suck up all the saw dust. Use a tack cloth (which is made of special fabric that is stiff enough to wipe up and pull up dirt) to wipe the floor; make sure that there’s no saw dust anywhere. As the bamboo has very tight grain, so the colors may have some difficulty in clinging on to the surface. Use a water soaked rag, squeeze the extra water, and wipe the floor with the rag.

If you want to stain your bamboo flooring in Sydney property then knowing the above mentioned steps should prove highly useful. However, for effective bamboo floor sanding and polishing in Sydney, consider taking help of flooring experts.
