Welcome to Sanding Services

The Environment

Unlike most floor coverings, wood floors come from a natural resource that is sustainable. Long gone are the days when timber was cut down with little thought for the long term consequences on the World's forests. Today most timber is cut from forests that are carefully managed to ensure continued resources in the future.

We are committed to achieving environmental best practice throughout our working practice. In pursuit of economic growth and a healthy environment we understood that ecological protection and sustainable development are the responsibility of all, including business, governments and communities.

Sanding services are committed to buying all hardwood and softwood from legal and renewable sources and will seek evidence that suppliers are in compliance with this policy. As sources of certified timber become more available, the company will give preferences to certified timber wherever practical.

Sanding services are making choices that are good for the environment, Choosing hardwood suppliers is not an easy task. Wood is a natural resource that is both renewable and recyclable. It is renewable since reforestation is achieved through professional forest management and correct harvesting.

Hardwood floors have superior longevity benefits over other floor coverings, such as carpet and vinyl. While old carpet and vinyl end up in a landfill site, simply refinishing can rejuvenate an old hardwood floor, to restore it to its natural freshly installed appearance. There is no reason that a solid hardwood floor can not outlive the life of the building.

The production of real wood flooring uses very little energy and our packaging for delivery is kept to an absolute minimum. We only offer our wooden floors to customer in their most natural state; they are not pre-treated with harmful finishes. We allow our customers to make their own choice on finishing, whether it is a varnish/ lacquer protective layer or penetrating oil or wax finish. However for ascetic and environmental reasons sanding services recommend that our floors be finished with our recommended products.
