Surveys  such as USA today show that when looked after, real wood floors often command a premium over carpets or laminates in a property sale. From that point of view alone, it pays to take care of your wooden flooring and regard it as an investment over time. Properties in London often have wooden floors hidden under lino or carpets. You may well have floorboards or if you're lucky even a parquet floor!

When properly maintained and looked after, wood floors can last for hundreds of years. Leaving wood untreated, however, can lead to minor marks becomming more serious damage over time. This is where we enter the equation with our sanding services for wooden floors of all types.

Before sanding:

Floor warn - before it is sanded

Before - floor
prepared ready to sand...

After sanding and varnishing:

Floor after it has been sanded and sealed - in this case, varnished.

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.
