The restoration of old parquet floors has always been a rewarding challenge for us
Sometimes a pleasant surprise lies underneath the carpets of a home you recently acquired - beautiful old parquet flooring. Probably it won't be in it's greatest condition, but our parquet floor sanding service can do miracles with it and bring it back to the previous glory. With our years of experience and professional care for wooden flooring, we feel confident that our high-quality services are exactly what you need.
Parquets are experiencing a revival in popularity these days, due to the fact that they are a precious, a valuable addition to your home, which can raise the property value.
The process of resurfacing requires man's absolute attention to detail, because of parquet's nature, the different directions of the blocks and the flow of the wood grain. That is the most precise procedure among other sanding processes. If there are any missing or damaged tiles, we will be happy to restore them with a matching replacement from one of our worldwide acclaimed suppliers. We use a dust-free sanding equipment that will reduce immensely the cleaning afterwards.
When our experts finish with the second sanding process and your parquet is smooth and lighter than before, the gap filling is a recommended procedure for the complete restoration of your parquet floors. The nature of the process is in mixing the collected dust from the sanding process with resin wood filler and filling the larger gaps, but don't worry, the remaining filler on the blocks will be removed with the third sanding round.
The next step in the parquet restoration procedure is the finish choice. Depending on your personal preference we offer water-based and solvent-based lacquers, hardwax-oil in a variety of colours. The oil will penetrate the wood and it will protect it for a longer period of time, while the hardwax-oil will show the natural beauty of your parquet in a non-glossy way.
The varnish is the other option; it comes in matt, satin or gloss finish. It is easier to maintain the varnish, even though a polyurethane coat of polish is advised. We work with Osmo, Bona, Blanchon and Junckers products; they will help us in the process of turning your old parquetry into the desired one. Once your floor is restored, you will find it quite easy to maintain it with the right products.
Remember to leave the floor intact for 12 hours before moving the furniture back into the room.
