What was the job?

We were asked to sand these wood floors in Acton by a homeowner who wanted to return them to how they looked when they first moved in.

There was no thankfully no significant damage and work was carried out to ensure the continuing quality of the oak wood floors.

Square metres – 

Lounge- 21.5 m2 

Living area- 28.2 m2

Entrance hallway- 19 m2

Study area- 11.3 m2

Corridor- 5.5 m2

Toilet- 2.3 m2

Cloakroom- 1.22 m2

Utility room- 2.2 m2

Challenges 

This was quite a big job for a residential property and the smaller rooms had obstructions.

The bottom step of the staircase was curved. The shape and overhang of the step meant we had to be careful with machines that could have caused damage if not used properly.

What we did

The floor was not excessively damaged. This meant we only needed to use a two stage sanding process.

After sanding with dust free machines, we buffed and vacuumed the floor to remove any excess and applied four coats of heavy duty lacquer.

The results

The floors now look like new again and add an inviting feel to the home.

Adding lacquer means the floors will remain in great condition for years to come.
