Despite wood floors being hard wearing and durable there is only so much a floor can take.
After years of heavy traffic or an insufficient maintenance routine a wood floor can begin to deteriorate and loose its original beauty. At this point there are many different options for your wood floor depending on its current condition. If your existing floor has already been restored you may be able to get away with simply resealing the floor. Which we can normally do using whatever product was previously applied to the floor. In most cases a complete restoration which involves sanding and resealing is necessary, in order to bring the floor back to being as good as new.
Here at Freshwoods we are highly experienced when it comes to wood floor sanding whether its hardwood, parquet or floorboards. We have perfected our sanding techniques to produce the best possible finish. Mastering the highest quality sanding equipment from both Bona and Festool. All our sanding machinery comes with dust-extracting machines, resulting in them being 98% dust-free. Some dust is inevitable, but we take precautions such as masking and screening to keep this to a minimum.
Before sanding can begin floor repairs may need to be carried out. For more information on this please visit out repairs page.
Floor sanding prepares a floor for it to be resealed. It leaves the floor tidy and smooth by removing the top layer of the wooden floor therefore levelling it out and removing any small dents and surface marks. Once we have completed all of our sanding stages, we can begin to apply the most suitable finish.
Our knowledge and past experience with flooring products enables us to provide you with a sealant that is both appropriate for your floor type also to your personal preferences such as colour and sheen.
We can help decide whether a oil, wax, varnish or stain would be best. Our preferred method of finish is hardwax oil, as it provides a natural look and feel to the wood. It also means any future damage can be easily patch repaired eliminating the need to sand the whole floor. We appreciate sealing and protecting your floors is a crucial stage in the restoration process so we are here to offer our expert advice.
All our quotes are based on using products produced by leading floor finishing manufacturers including Treatex, Morrells and Bona to name just a few. All of which are highly durable and come in a vast range of colours and finishes whether that be matt, satin or gloss sheens. Once we have finished your floor we provide advice on how to maintain and clean it to help keep your floor in its best condition for longer.
