We use quality polishers and hardwax-oils from Osmo, Blanchon and Bona to refresh the look of your wooden floors
Maintaining your wooden floors with the appropriate processes and materials means that you can prolong their life and continue to enjoy their shine and beauty for a much longer time before they need to be sanded. Most wood floor maintenance services would aim to restore and protect the existing floor covering and add an extra layer of sealant to ensure that the timber is well protected for longer.
Wood Floor Polishing
Wood floor polishing is a maintenance service applicable only to lacquered floors. It is often also referred to as "Clean & Polish" service. Regardless of what it is called, the aim of this type of service is to improve the condition of your wooden floors.
Well, polishing is the application of a new coat(s) of a "Polish" onto floors sealed with water-based or solvent-based lacquer. The polish as a product which can only bond onto a lacquered surface and it is not intended to be used on bare wood. Therefore, if the floors have any significant wearing, they should go for floor sanding service, as the result will be unexpected. Our staff members and flooring experts will be able to advise if Clean & Polish service is applicable in given situation.
Wood Floor Re-Oiling
Wood floor re-oiling is recommended every 16 to 24 months for domestic use and special attention should be paid to floors with commercial use and floors finished in colour. Re-oiling is the application of an extra coat of oil over the existing oiled finish.
Preparation of the floors to take an extra coat is done by fine abrasive and the application of the oil is made with slow buffing process. Our oil-based products offer matt or satin sheen.
Wood Floor Re-coating
Unlike the Polishing service, the Recoating requires the same type of lacquer to be applied over the existing one. If the product is unknown, Polishing services should go instead.
Preparation of the floors to take an extra coat is done by an agent mixed with the new coat of lacquer and run of a fine abrasive to prepare the floors for an additional coat.
