Floor Sanding

You don’t need to do anything dramatic to add character and value to your property. Simply have your timber floors sanded and recoated for a new and refreshed look. It gives your property that classic-modern appearance you’ve always been after – especially good prior to putting your property on the market.

7 good reasons why you should have your floors sanded and polyurethaned:

  • Adds life to your floors

  • Timber floors add value to your property

  • Timber flooring lasts longer than carpet, vinyl, tiles, and other laminate floorings

  • It’s ideal for people with allergies and other sensitivities – no more carpet mites or other nasties!

  • Easy to maintain and dust-free

  • Avoid carpet stains that are hard to remove – good for rental properties

  • Simple re-coats make your floors look refreshed and new again.

Polyurethane Finishes

Using only the most quality European and New Zealand range of waterborne polyurethanes, Active Floor Sanding offer customers a virtually smell-free and dust-free service. Because it’s water-based, you’ll get a clear finish that brings out the natural colours and grains of the timber. It’s also non- toxic and non-flammable which makes it fast drying and you won’t have that strong chemical odour lingering behind for weeks.

Waterbourne Polyurethane features include:

  • High wear resistance

  • Non-toxic and non-flammable – safe for family and pets

Timber Staining

Here at Active Floorsanding Services we have two different manners of timber staining available to you, our valued customer:

Water Borne Staining

Water borne staining has become a very popular way of colouring your floors with the freedom a non toxic smelling polyurethane, that is safe for your family & pets. Creating a striking darker floor to match your decor and furniture, water borne staining is ideal for homes of darker tones and coloring.


This is the white wash effect that has become extremely popular in modern homes. White stain is added to a water-borne polyurethane. Different timbers however require a different number of blonded coats. Ideal option for lighter timbers such as pine, oak, tawa, kauri etc.

Oil Finishes

All our oil finishes are done using natural wood oils which are ideal for flooring. All oils are suitable for raw wood floors, solid or engineered, solid cork flooring and are rated for use on radiant heat floor systems.

Features Include:

  • Quick drying and easy to apply with either a buffer, trowel or roller

  • Enhances the colour and grain of the wood

  • Chemical resistant, non-flammable

  • 98% solid

  • All oils are VOC compliant

  • Easily spot repaired

  • Easy to clean, similar to other wood floor cleaning procedures

**Ideal for those extremely high traffic areas such as nightclubs, pubs, bars, restaurants, airports etc…

Rubbish Removal

A lot of rubbish can be gathered from our work, in the form of dust, sand paper and empty polyurethane containers. That’s why you can rest assured in the knowledge we take care of it all! We will dispose of all site rubbish correctly and efficiently for you so that you can kick back, relax and know that we have the job taken care of.

Also, all our work vehicles are serviced every 10,000km so NO nasty oil leaks will be left on your driveway once we have left your property.

We dispose of ALL our rubbish including the disposal of the carpets and underlays that we lift in preparation for the floorsanding.

Water Sealing

With the recent increase in the leaky buildings saga, water sealing has become even more popular and necessary than ever.

Before you lay carpet or thin board for vinyl or tiles, we will fill all the cracks and holes in your floor with epoxy filler – eliminating those airy drafts. We will then give the particle or plywood a leveling sand commonly known as a builder’s cut before applying a water-borne polyurethane. This seals all the pores of the wood and protects your underlying floor against water damage, rot and swelling for years to come.

Halls & Gymnasiums

Halls, gymnasiums and other large commercial spaces such as pubs, bars, restaurants and nightclubs are also areas we focus on.

We understand these large areas are more susceptible to high foot traffic and because of this we have procedures to combat this and ultimately provide a long lasting floor.

Northcote College, Auckland Museum, St Johns Church Northcote, City Life Hotel, Bathroom & Kitchen showrooms are just some of the large projects undertaken by us here at Active Floorsanding Services.*



Here at Active Floorsanding, we take enormous pride in our ability to provide a stellar service, as well as a great experience for our customers. But, don’t take our word for it, have a look at the many testimonials we have both here and on

"Duane and his team did a superb job on our floors. He was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Great communication and great price as well. We are thrilled with the result and happy to recommend his services. "


"Duane and his team did a fabulous job on our kitchen floor. They turned up when they said they would and did an outstanding job from start to finish. Our floor looks like new again. Thanks so much guys :)”

Noreen & Mike

"We engaged Duane and his team to sand and refinish our large area of Tasmanian Oak Flooring before moving into our new home. From start to finish, we had the most exceptional service in all respects. Duane's knowledge was invaluable, we had not had wooden floors before and he gave us superb advice and choices of how we could go about it. We chose the Bona Dri Fast stain and Bona non toxic water borne polyurethane finish and to say we are absolutely thrilled with the finish would be an…"


"We are very happy to recommend Active FloorSanding following their work on our old kauri floors. Duane turned up for the quote within a day, and his pricing was very reasonable. Their workload was busy, but we were given a starting date which they adhered to, and communication was excellent throughout the whole process with phone calls, emails and texts. Craig was lovely to deal with. He turned up promptly on time each day, and worked hard to achieve the best results. We are thrilled with how the floors now look. Thanks guys!"


"Old wood native floors sanded in 3 rooms, hall, and cupboards. Quick communication and quote provided - flexibility given for start date. Additional removal of carpet prior to sanding was appreciated. No 'fuss' job completed efficiently with great results. Professional manner evident throughout. Would definitely use again. Thank you to Duane and the team."

"I have used Duane for three separate jobs now and each time I have been highly impressed by his teams workmanship and service as a whole. The first job was a Matai floor in a renovated home and since then two new Oak floors. Duane obviously has an exceptional knowledge of floor finishing and was at all times able to work with me to achieve the finish that I was looking for. As a side note, Duane recommended we use a Bona Spray Mop to look after the floors. We took up his advice and are stoked…"


This was the second time we have used Active Floorsanding and once again they were great to deal with. The quote was reasonable, they showed up on time, and the job was done to a very good standard. Duane also called me part-way through to give me a heads-up about some variation in the underlying timber (a feature of the timber itself) which was great too - no surprises when we got home.
I'd have no hesitation in recommending Active Floorsanding (and have done, several times). "
