Commercial Floor Sanding
Because industrial wood floors are larger and busier than floors in homes, common sense states that commercial wood floor sanding not only requires but deserves additional protection. Gym halls, indoor sporting arenas, bowling alleys, showrooms and exhibition halls as well as hotels, pubs and restaurants with polished hardwood floors should take steps to ensure their commercial ship does not ‘spoil for a hap’worth of tar’. Hardwood flooring is a clean, on-trend and eco-friendly alternative to carpeting and tiles and has enjoyed a resurgence of popularity as borders around swimming pools and hot tubs, when properly sealed and treated.
The downside to commercial hardwood floors (if indeed there is one) must be that they are high traffic areas, although this should not dissuade the business owner with an eye for the aesthetics of his or her business from choosing real wood flooring.
High end luxury
Highly polished beautiful wood floors speak of success, quality and timeless style which is why so many upper-end showrooms choose to use wood flooring as a backdrop to their showpiece luxury products.
Traditional public buildings such as libraries, local council offices and registrars will, if they are fortunate enough to have retained them, do all they can to keep these wood flooring gems as, once installed, real wood is not difficult to maintain.
Wood floor is arguably the most cost effective form of commercial flooring there is. In a domestic setting one can expect to get 10 years from a floor before refinishing is required and even a high traffic thoroughfare can expect, with regular maintenance, to get 3-4 years before rejuvenation is needed. This makes wood flooring far more practical and cost-effective than any other form of floor covering.
Your floor is your subliminal advertisement
However, when the time comes when your floor, despite regular cleaning and buffing, begins to lose its glow then refinishing is required. The restoration of a commercial floor should be seen as an investment, not an expense. The floor is the first thing your customer sees when they enter your premises and if that floor is clean, smooth and shiny then it is an unconscious advertisement that your products and services are of the same quality. This also holds true for a floor that is less than spick and span.
Commercial areas may be larger than domestic premises but they are also more regularly shaped and an experienced floor sanding contractor will probably take no more than a day or two to complete refinishing work such as floor sanding and polishing, with minimal disruption and inconvenience.
No matter the type of wood, professional techniques bring each floor back to singular beauty ready once again to welcome customers to your place of business. Business owners can take this opportunity for a change of veneer or perhaps of colour. All finishing products used in UK floor renovations are toxin free and pose no harm to children or animals.
In addition to the intrinsic look of the premises, a beautiful and well maintained floor ensures the longevity of the wood and a makeover as and when required every few years or so will undoubtedly mean the floor lasts for very many years.
If your premises are in the market for a renovated wood floor then don’t trust the look of your business to anyone other than a tried and proven floor sanding specialist who will fully guarantee all word and finish to timescale.
The wise businessperson will seek a no-cost, no-obligation quotation and floor assessment, thereby taking advantage of specialist opinion and ideas. Even if you are unsure as to the age of the floor or when it was last renovated, a specialist flooring assessor will be able to make an educated guess and suggest the best way to redo the floor to best effect.
