Hardwood Floor Restoration | Floor Sanding London
Hardwood floor restoration is a popular service which can be done several times on your floors, renewing and refreshing their appearance.
Solid Wood Floor Sanding
The first step of any floor restoration process is the sanding, which removes the existing sealant and makes the floor surface smooth and even without any trace of scratches or imperfections. Normally, several rounds of sanding are performed, starting with a coarser sanding paper to remove the top layer and finishing with a finer sanding. It is very important to note that at this stage the wood is left unprotected and it should not be allowed to stay like this as any liquid, dust or dirt can cause a permanent mark or damage to the wood.
Wood Floor Sealing
Once sanded, wooden floors an be sealed with either varnish or hard wax oil to protect the wood by creating a durable protective layer. The choice of sealant is often based on personal preferences, but it is important to consider some basic factors when making it. Varnished floors are generally more durable as the varnish creates a ticker and longer lasting prospective layer. They may sustain many years of use until another sanding is required, especially if occasional floor cleaning and polishing is done to maintain the sealant when signs of wear begin to appear. Oiled floors on the other hand, require more frequent maintenance as the oil sealant tends to soak into the wood and hence needs frequent re-oiling. However, oil is a frequent choice of sealant mainly due to the more natural appearance that it creates. Some of the most popular varnishes that we use for our floor restoration services include Bona Mega and Junckers Strong for residential properties and Bona Traffic or Junckers HP Commercial for commercial floors in gyms, sport halls, churches, offices, retail units and restaurants or pubs.
Our hardwood floor sanding service is available for many timber species - oak, walnut, maple, ash, merbau, jarrah, teak and more.
