What was the job?

A dartford home needed sanding and staining work on the wood floors.

There were two rooms that required work: the lounge and the bedroom.

Challenges

The lounge and bedroom had different types of wood, meaning we had to take more care with one than the other. Pine, as was in the lounge, is a softwood. Less pressure can be applied by sanding machines on such a surface.

Areas:

Lounge: 14.60 m2

Bedroom 1: 11.62 m2

Time taken:

2 days

What we did

As there was no major damage to the floorboards, we were able to begin sanding the floor immediately after the furniture was moved.

After sanding, buffing and vacuuming, we added a coat of stain to each floor. The colours chosen by the client were medium oak and dark oak.

After this had been completed and the stain dried, we applied four coats of clear lacquer.

The results

Whereas previously the floors in each room looked considerably worn, they now appear as new.

The lacquer means the floor will be resistant to scratches and everyday wear and tear.
