Why Restore Wooden Floors?

By On October 16, 2017 No Comments

We often talk about creating incredible transformations. Some of our clients completely transform the appearance of their home or business by restoring their wooden floors. This isn’t always the case and isn’t always required.

Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean that wood floors, after use don’t need restoring. We were invited to restore this wood floor in Mawdesley recently. No drastic change in wood finish was required; they just wanted their worn and tired floor to be given a new lease of life.

The first images show that the floor had been well-used and that it needed to be fully sanded in order to take the top, worn layers off. Once again, we got to work with our industrial floor sanding machinery.

All of the top layers were sanded back using our state-of-the-art dustless sanding machine. This is the point at which you can see the natural wood underneath. The wooden boards in this state are easily damaged and should always be finished with an appropriately selected wood finish alternative.

For the type of building this was, it was clear that a hard-wearing finish would be required. The hall is used for many different events and the wood floor restoration work is an investment into the building so needs to offer value for money.

The wood finish products were applied and the court lines replaced. Although there was no drastic change in the floors appearance with regards to colour or finish, the restored floor provided the ‘wow factor’ nevertheless.

Dance Studio Flooring Preston

By On April 29, 2017 No Comments

We received a call from the Fever Dance Company. Their dance studio in Preston, Lancashire was in need of some tender loving care. When we surveyed the floor it was evident that the studio was an incredibly well-used space.

The dance studio is used seven days a week for many dance classes. This had culminated into a lifeless floor, in need of our help. Due to the fact that the studio was so well-used, it was important that the wood restoration was arranged for a time that would offer minimal disruption to their busy schedule.

Therefore, it was quickly identified that timescales for the job were important for our client. How is this managed?

  • Our experience in the trade means that we are equipped to quickly identify the best materials to complete the job
  • We use the best-available floor sanding machinery to offer an efficient service with superior results
  • Our skilled team are able to be deployed in order to ensure that sufficient manpower is available to complete the work in a timely manner
  • We have industrial driers that speed up the drying time of the wood finish

The survey also identified the importance of selecting the most appropriate finish for the floor. Because the wood floor is used as a dance studio, the selected finish needed to:

  • Offer adequate traction for the dancers
  • Be hard-wearing and durable to support the daily usage

The wood sanding process removed the top layers of old finish and sanded away the surface scratches and dull spots. The wood finish was then applied in order to protect the floor beneath and to offer the resistance against wear.

Once completed the wood flooring was transformed and once again, ready to take on the daily challenges of dancing feet. Is your floor looking past its best? Are you curious if it can be restored? Call 1 Stop Floor Care today on 0800 852 7177.



Wood Restoration Project Buxton

By On April 25, 2017 No Comments

When you are considering restoring your wood floor, it does not necessarily mean that you are looking for a huge change. You may adore the colour of your wooden floor but feel as though years of use and wear have just made it look unsightly.

How does this happen? Damage to wood floors is often heightened in commercial properties due to simple fact that individuals visiting the property do not take their shoes off. All types of contaminants and particles are carried in by people’s shoes. These may scratch the surface or they may fall off your footwear and be left on the floor. Someone else then walking over these particles will then further scratch and dull the surface.

It may also be that larger items are dropped onto the floor. This may cause larger scratches or dents. Either way, it is important that these are not left. Regular maintenance will make sure dirt and particles are removed and unable to further damage the flooring.

We were asked to restore this beautiful wooden floor in the Old Hall Hotel in Buxton. The first images show how damaged the floor was prior to work commencing. The finish had discoloured and the entire floor had suffered a range of superficial and deep scratches.

The second set of images show the floor after it was fully sanded and prior to the application of their chosen finish. It is sometimes difficult to believe the actual colour of the floor once the wood finish has been stripped back. The wood, in its natural state was in great condition and we knew, once re-finished would offer great service to this incredible property.

Once the new wood finish was applied and fully dried, the transformation was clear to see. No longer was your eye going to be drawn to the deteriorated state of the floor, but instead the beautiful surroundings. Are you looking for a floor sander? Call 1 Stop Floor Care today on 0800 852 7177.



Advice from a Commercial Floor Sander

By On January 25, 2017 No Comments

Commercial floor sanding is not for the faint hearted. It is only the best-served professionals that are able to take on such work. Furthermore this type of floor sanding requires an incredible understanding of each and every process involved with sanding wooden floors.

Commercial floor sander PrestonIndividuals that are under-equipped or do not have the knowledge required to complete large-scale work will likely find the process too challenging. Why is this?

  • Whatever the size; the floor needs to be seamlessly sanded to produce an even finish
  • The application of a wood finish must be completed in a timely manner

This is particularly relevant as wood finishes are vital to the overall success of any particular job. Why? It is accepted that the application of a finish isn’t necessarily enjoyable to those who are inexperienced.

Therefore… Why Finish Your Wood Floors?

  • To keep them clean

Wood as a natural material is porous. These pores, if untreated, accumulate dirt such as particles, dust and contaminants. This is unsightly and can work to further deteriorate the wooden floor. When a wood finish is applied it works as a seal to the surface of the individual pores and means that they are unlikely to fill with dirt again and will be easier to clean.

  • To help with moisture issues

Commercial Floor Sander LancshireAs wood absorbs and releases moisture, the environment that it is laid determines how serious an issue this is. Wood is responsive to humidity and the application of a finish minimises these effects, leaving a stable surface.

  • Aesthetic benefits

Although natural wood is a beautiful material; a finish for wood floors provides a decorative element. There is a huge range of finishes available from a simple wax or oil to other alternatives that provide colour enhancements.

School Wood Floor Restoration Liverpool

By On November 21, 2016 No Comments

We often discuss the requirement for commercial properties to look at their best at all times. This offers a cared-for and positive outward appearance. There are many other reasons why wood floors should be maintained regularly.

School floors are unique in their usage. They are used in a multifunctional way to satisfy the individual requirements of the students. This means that the level of foot traffic on such wooden floors is incredibly high.

Commercial floor sander LiverpoolIt then has to be considered that students will be using the wood floor with bare feet. Dance classes and other events mean that the floors need to be clean. Other problems such as splintering or flaking finishes can also cause problems for users.

This parquet floor was restored in a school in Liverpool. Over the years the floor had darkened and now really made the space feel gloomy. The wood finish had discoloured and the once crisp lines had faded.

It no longer reflected the professional appearance of the school and so they invited us to survey the floor for restoration. It was discussed that they wanted a light and bright floor. They did not want the hall to feel dark.

Commercial Floor Sanding LiverpoolIt is often the case that our clients feel passionately about their floor restoration projects. Not everyone wants the expense and disruption of replacement. Alongside this is the heritage of the floor. School flooring is steeped in history, not to mention restrictive school budgeting.

The existing flaking finish was sanded away. The drum sander was used to complete this with the edger for the surrounding perimeters. The true beauty of the floor was revealed at this point and it was possible to see what the finished product could be.

An extremely hard-wearing wood finish was then selected to boost the natural colour of the floor.
