How Much Can Timber Floor Maintenance Cost?

The cost of maintaining timber flooring in Sydney is relatively low compared to carpet. A timber floor can have a lifespan of 75 to 100 years, and regular maintenance by professionals will keep it looking great.

Annual Cleaning

Regular cleaning your floor yourself will help to protect it from inground dirt, dust, and scuffing. There will, however, always be some inground dirt left in your floor. An expert clean and polish will remove this and have your timber floors looking bright and fresh again. The price for a clean will depend on your floor’s square meterage and the type of timber floor that you have. Annual cleaning is recommended for all types of timber floors, including hardwood and floating floors.

Professionals Give You Value for Money

Any fixtures to your home are an investment and flooring is no exception. Do not try to do the job yourself and always hire a firm who specialises in flooring. Trying to scrimp when it comes to your flooring can actually damage your floor and cost you in the long run. Hiring experts will see you get the best value for money and you have peace of mind knowing that your flooring will be professionally cared for. Ask for checkable references from the floor company.

Floor Sanding and Polishing

Having a timber floor requires floor polishing and sanding to keep in it looking fresh and new. Timber floors are durable, and the average home needs polishing and sanding just once every 10 to 15 years.

Floor Staining

When you have your floor polished and sanded the result is a completely updated look without the need for new floor coverings. Choose a shade to match your décor and your unique style and taste.

Always Get Quotes

When it is time for maintenance on your floors, always get written quotations from at least two suppliers. Ensure that the company your hire are professional and experienced. Word of mouth is a great means of referral – ask family, friends and work colleagues for recommendations. Check the company’s references and ask for proof of insurance.
