Work could not spill over into un-designated areas and disturb the business.
How the floor looked before we started work
What we did
Before sanding, we cleared the areas to prevent damage and complete the work efficiently.
We then sanded the floors using a process that restricts the spreading of dust throughout a room or building.
We also stained a number of floors as specified by Harrods management.
After the floors were sanded, they were then buffed and vacuumed in order to allow us to properly apply lacquer to the surface.
During the floor restoration
The treatment of the wood floors in the Harrods department store was a complete success, with the floors sanded and stained to the high quality demanded.
Signs of wear and tear were removed and the floors were returned to a rich, glossy finish.
