Sanding and staining pine floor boards in Dartford
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.
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.
Lounge: 14.60 m2
Bedroom 1: 11.62 m2
How the floor looked before we started work
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.
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.
