Floor Sanding Tailored to Your Floors
Sanding is usually the initial step of the wood floor restoration process. Floor saning removes the damaged top layer of the wooden floor and smoothens it to prepare your floors for sealing, that will protect it for years to come. Each type of timber and type of flooring has its own character and qualities. Therefore, our approach to floor restoration would differ for achieving the best results.
Our extensive knowledge of various wood flooring products enables us to recognise and specify the type of your flooring to ensure that we perform the most appropriate sanding techniques at a relevant depth and that we apply the most suitable products. We approach the different types of wooden floorings with particular care as we appriciate how important it is to perform the appropriate type of wood floor sanding in order to achieve the ultimate results for our customers.
Removing the surface from engineered floors can be a good example - floor retailers and manufacturers often advertise their engineered floorings with 3 mm top layer can be sanded 3 times. In practice, however, we know this is rarely the case and unless sanding engineered wood flooring with such thickness is done by a professional floor sanding company there is a risk of removing the whole of the top layer by the very first sanding. Choosing a professional floor sandin service like ours for your floors can guarantee that you can have your engineered floors sanded at least twice.
Parquet floor sanding is another example that prooves floor finishing is a craft that is better lefr to the professionals. Because parquet flooring somprises of small pieces of wood whose grains run i various directions, parquet floor sanding should be performed with specific care to ensure smooth and delightful appearance.
Sanding hardwood floors requires professional techniques in both sanding and finishing. This type of service requires not only extreme care, but also a quick and prompt completion to ensure great result. Solid wood flooring is extremely vulnerable to external conditions such as humidity and once sanded it should not be exposed unprotected for very long time.
Our wood floor restoration services ensure the best protection and the ultimate results for both residential and commercial wood floor sanding. We are also well equipped and skilled to perform professionall wood floor sanding of Junckers floors, which is a popular hardwood floor choice for church floors, gyms, museums, offices, sports halls, schools and other general public premises.
Restoring floorboards requires a lot of hard work. This service can include lifting & disposing of carpets, refitting of boards & repairs, removal of fireplace hearts and more that can be a challenge for a DIY initiative. Our company meets this challange with passion because we know how beautifuly and incomparable the restored floorboards can come out.
In addition, we'd like to mention how proud we are to say our timber sanding services are dust-free as they are performed using the most up to date dust free sanding equipment and techniques available today.
Floor Sealing, Staining & Re-Oiling
Wood floor sealing is the process of covering the sanded floors with the most appropriate type of sealant, which could be either wood floor lacquer or wood floor oil.
