Sanding and staining wood floor boards in East Dulwich
What was the job?
Several floors of a property in East Dulwich, London, needed sanding. The client also requested some floors be stained and basic maintenance work administered.
The hallway incorporated two different types of wood, which required different levels of sanding in order to be even after the work was completed.
There were large gaps in places and some floorboards had to be replaced.
Hallway: 4.17 m2 – Pine floorboards – 14.5 cm
Lounge: 15.41 m2
Bedroom: 10.67 m2
How the floor looked before we started work
What we did
Before sanding, we supplied and installed new floorboards to even out the surface and improve overall quality. Cosmetic gap fill was required for a little hole and big gap in the bedroom.
After the three stage, dust free sanding process, the floors were vacuumed to remove any debris. With a clear workspace, we were able to apply a coat of walnut stain with no lumps or grainy patches.
Four layers of lacquer were then used to preserve the colour of the stain and improve the floor’s durability.
During the floor restoration
The client was pleased with the new colour of their floor which will now remain at that high standard for a long time.
