Sanding wood floors in the English National Ballet School

Posted on June 17th, 2016 In: Floor Sanding Blogs

What was the job?

The English National Ballet School, London, is a paid for dance school providing dancers aged 16-19 with world class training.

The parquet flooring in the building needed routine maintenance work to remove scratches and change the stain to a lighter tone.

Challenges

There were some borders between the floors and walls which were not to be sanded, so we had to be extra careful when avoiding them.

As the building is used to teach, we had to work at a time when we knew there would be no students needing to be in our work space.

What we did

The floors had been well-maintained so did not require us to replace any blocks. We sanded away the stain before buffing away any excess. This smooth and clear surface then meant we were free to apply layers of lacquer.

The results

The client is happier with the lighter shade to the wood. With the same level of care as previously shown, it will be years before our services are required again.

Sanded wood floors are smoother and, consequently, safer. This is beneficial in an area with heavy foot traffic.
