Bring your old wood floors back to life with Floor Renovations...
We are completely at ease with hardwood floors such as oak, beech or walnut, or softwood such as pine, yew or Douglas fir, damaged, old or new; from solid boards or parquet blocks or herringbone. Our floor sanding process makes a complete finished job and we cut no corners, nor do we use sub standard varnishes to finish off with.
Estate agency statistics show that real wooden floors in a property command a premium over carpets or laminates, and as a great many wooden floors have been installed in properties for generations it pays to look after them and regard them as something of an investment. Luckily, if you live in London, a lot of the houses have wooden floors - often hiding under carpets or lino. These range from floorboards to more exotic types, such as parquet floors, if you're lucky!
You know as well as we do that when properly looked after and maintained, a wooden floor can last for hundreds of years, but left untreated, minor marks can lead to more serious damage in the future, and this is where we enter the equation with our sanding services for wooden floors of all types.
Before - floor
prepared ready to sand...
After - floor sanded and one or more coats of varnish applied...
What is floor sanding?
With wooden floors, this is where the top layer of wood is scarified away, using sandpaper, in order to remove a stained and damaged surface. The process allows the fresher, newer wood, that sits below the surface to be revealed. Now this process can be achieved a number of ways, but the professional way is to use a belt sander. If done professionally, a dustless sander should be used, which will remove the majority of sawdust as it is created, thus keeping the room in question cleaner and helping to create an even result.
Certain wood finishes can clog the abrasive material used to strip the wood back and so this has to be removed first to improve results. Sanding is not of course the only treatment needed on old wooden floors. Sometimes a floor will have been badly pitted, or split and need filling. Floorboards or parquet may be broken or missing and need replacement and repair before the floor can be sanded. In addition, some floorboards have large or unsightly gaps that need filling before the floor is finished and different techniques may be used if appropriate, to achieve this where possible. If a floor has repairs, care must also be taken to replace the wood with an appropriate wood and pattern, or the end result will be affected. For best results the wood types will be matched and similar age wood replacements used to fill gaps if deemed necessary by the technician.
Once a floor has been repaired and sanded, various finishes are available to protect the newly exposed wood and help keep the flooring in good order.
