Restore Your Parquet Floor Lancashire

By On December 14, 2017 No Comments

Parquet floors add character to any space where they are fitted. They bring an element of sophistication and class to both domestic and commercial properties. It is possible that they are one of the most likely wood floor types that are uncovered in restoration projects. This means that they are often hidden under carpets or other floor coverings for many years.

When they are discovered, individuals are usually get quite excited about the process of floor restoration. There is a whole host of information and images available that show the transformation that can be achieved.

Wood Floor Sander LancashireThis is an example of parquet floor restoration that we completed in Lancashire. The first image shows the difference when we arrived. The different tones of the wood floor show where floor coverings, such as rugs protected parts of the floor. Other parts are worn away through daily usage.

Our client wanted us to restore the floor. We used our dust free sanding process to complete this job. The survey was completed and to offer us confidence that each of the parquet blocks were appropriately fixed. Without this, individual blocks can be damaged through the restoration process.

The images show that the floor went from looking uneven and unsightly to exactly the opposite. Instead of wanting to cover up the floor, our clients felt confident that they wanted to show it off. Instead of being an embarrassment it changed to be a talking point.

This is where our floor sanding services play a really important role. We are confident in our services and ability to offer the best sanding finishes. Contact our friendly staff today on 0800 852 7177 to book a quotation; you won’t be disappointed.
