Sanding & Polishing
Our primary services come in two parts. First, we have floor sanding in Adelaide, which aims to restore floorboards and remove signs of damage. Floor sanding also prepares your base for the next step—polishing. Varnishing and polishing your floorboards gives them a sparkling clean look, and the protective coating also prevents general wear and tear damage.
But why should you consider sanding and polishing your floors if they’ve already been done in the past?
Simply put, through years of wear and tear, the protective coating or varnish on your floorboards wears away. These make your floorboards more susceptible to damage, such as scratches, dents, and stains. Floorboards can be restored to their former glory by sanding them down to remove damaged varnish and prepare a smooth surface for recoating.
Typically, most floors benefit from sanding and polishing every 5-7 years, but this is simply a guide. Busy houses may require more regular floor treatments, while some floors can last longer.
Direct Staining Recoat & Refresh
Sometimes, your floor may not be significantly damaged, but you want to change its appearance. It is done by staining the timber on your floorboards. If your floor is already varnished, it is advised that you sand it back first before applying a new stain colour. It’s even more essential if your timber has previously been stained a different colour.
But if you want to give your floors a new look, we’re here to help. Our expert tradespeople can assess your needs accurately and provide a precise, transparent quote. Recoating your floor is a great way to refresh your home. These also help to protect your floor from damage, and it likely won’t need another treatment for years.
Maintain Your Timber Floors
Floor sanding and floor polishing in Adelaide do much more for your home than just making it look good. Many Australians choose timber floors in their homes for several reasons. They help keep your home cool in the summer, reflect natural light, and are easy to maintain with a broom, mop, or vacuum. But the key is keeping your floors properly maintained to avoid costly damage.
Even the most professionally laid timber floorboards have small gaps between them. They may not be big enough to notice, but they are still there. Fortunately, floor coating, such as varnish, provides a protective layer that fills these minuscule gaps, preventing food scraps from falling in and bacteria from growing.
Without this protective layer, bacteria can flourish. In wet environments, such as kitchens, moisture getting between your floorboards is equally dangerous. Dampness leads to mould, mould leads to rotting timber, and rotting timber leads to very expensive floor restoration. Avoid those issues, and let us help maintain your floor for years.
Our Floor Sanding and Floor Polishing Process
Floor rejuvenation is what we do every day, and we’ve developed a streamlined process to ensure your floors look as good as new in no time.
It starts with our initial assessment, where our experts determine the required grit sequence for your chosen finish. We even out the surface with an orbital or drum sander. Depending on the condition of the floor, this might be a quick or time-consuming process. Because floors must be sanded entirely and levelled before finishing and polishing, this is a necessary step. So, if there’s floor damage involved, we’ll repair this first.
We then use a roller, working along the grain to even everything out and seal the edges. Following that, we vacuum and clean your floor thoroughly, ensuring your surface is smooth and dust-free. It ensures that dust and other contaminants can’t cause bubbling when we apply your finish.
During our initial consultation, you would have chosen your desired finish, and applying that is the next step. Timber can be stained in various colours, and we have plenty available. Once we use your finish and the floors are dry, we can start the polishing process. Floor polishing in Adelaide has never been so easy.
Floor Sanding Preparation
Preparing your floor for sanding and polishing can differ depending on the floor’s condition. In a relatively new home with existing polished floorboards, it’s usually just a matter of sanding it back and reapplying your finish. Of course, we’re simplifying that to some degree, but it’s much easier to prepare a floor already in good condition.
Renovations, on the other hand, are a different story. Suppose your floor initially had another surface, such as vinyl or carpet, especially in older homes. In that case, it’s probably the floorboards underneath that will be covered in glue, remnants of underlay, and even protruding staples. Naturally, all of this must be removed before floor restoration can occur. Our expert team does whatever it takes to get your floor into the perfect condition for sanding and polishing.
Using the best equipment, we can strip back most timber floorboards, ensuring they are smooth, even before applying a new finish.

There are so many homes with tired, damaged, or old floorboards in Adelaide. Not only do they look unappealing, but they pose several risks. Firstly, unpolished floorboards are likely to cause splinters. Secondly, without a properly polished finish on your floorboards, there’s a greater risk of water, bacteria, and mould forming between them.

Best of all, during the floor polishing process, our team conducts a deep clean, removing harsh dirt and contaminants and further increasing your floor’s lifespan.
