What was the job?

We went to Leytonstone to work on some stairs and floors which had suffered from years of neglect.

The homeowner decided to get rid of the carpet which had been hiding the floorboards.

Challenges

The floorboards had been hidden under carpet for quite some time and, as a result, had not been cared for. The boards had developed gaps and the original colour had gone.

A lot of the home had been carpeted so we had a considerably large area to work on.

What we did

Before sanding, we secured any loose boards and fixed any of the larger gaps between the wood. This meant dust and debris was less likely to fall between cracks where it could not be cleaned. After sanding, we buffed and vacuumed the surface to leave it completely clear when lacquering.

We were careful with the stairs as the reduced surface area presented a health hazard. After sanding treads and risers, we painted the risers at the client’s request.

The results

The carpet is now gone and the clean, presentable floors are prominent in the home. Because of our work, the whole house appears more inviting. Wood floors are easier to clean and maintain than carpets and the lacquer will preserve the quality for some time.
