Floor Sanding London: Sand, Stain and Seal
We can refurbish your floors be they 10 years or 100 years old. Floor restoration requires attention to detail and following best practices. For instance, floors must be properly prepared prior to sanding. Otherwise, the results can be disappointing. Therefore, we follow a methodical process when working on your floors. This includes preparation, repairs, sanding, staining and sealing.
Following best practices is the key to great floor sanding. We appreciate that homeowners in West London work hard to maintain their homes. So, when it comes time to refurbish the floors, Londoners expect a great result. Our commitment to best practices helps us deliver those results, consistently.
1. Preparation & Repairs
Firstly, site preparation. Ideally, start by emptying and dusting the room. This helps with the next step, repairs. At this point, we inspect your floors for damage and make any repairs. In particular, damaged wooden floorboards, parquet or herringbone floors are repaired using new or reclaimed wood. Moreover, we nail down any protruding nails and remove any large debris.
2. Gap Fill & Sanding
Thirdly, if working with floorboards, we fill gaps at this stage. Using either mass fill or reclaimed pine slivers we close gaps between boards. This offers the best draught-proofing for floorboards, and gives a great finish. Next, using a dustless process, we sand your floors. Floor sanding requires multiple passes with a sander. That is, starting with coarser grits and moving to finer, we sand your floors several times for a smooth finish.
3. Stain & Seal
Lastly, we stain and seal your floors. To begin with, we prepare test patches your consideration. Seeing your chosen colours in your room’s light and decor helps you make the right decision for you. Our range of wooden floor stains follows the spectrum from the lighter English Oak to the darker American Walnut and Jacobean Dark Oak. Of course, staining is optional and many people love the raw beauty of unstained floors. However, if you choose a stain, we apply several coats to your floors.
Phew – almost done! Once your stain is dry we can move to the last stage of the process, sealing. This is when we apply several coats of a durable sealant for years of beauty and resilience.
