Frequently Asked Questions
How does a floor lose its looks?
How do sanders work?
The smooth wood may then be given a natural stain to enhance the original grain of the timber. For a new look, a coloured stain will match the floor to the décor of your home or commercial premises.
The new floor is finished by applying a protective sealant of lacquer, wax or oil. A final polish leaves a beautiful finish – with the durability to provide years of service.
Can you sand and polish any type of floor?
We want minimal disruption
A job takes at least a full day – and several days when multiple rooms are involved. We will work during evenings and at weekends, if necessary, to enable you to get back to business. We will give you approximate timings during your free assessment.
And if you need an overnight job, we can adapt. As in an Estee Lauder hairdressing salon in central London. We sent in five teams of sanders and used electric heaters to accelerate the drying of the sealant. The salon reopened for business the following day!

We have a lot of heavy furniture
My old floors need extensive repairs
We reset loose boards and fix them in position. We also remove old tacks and nails – and hammer protruding nails flat.
My floors have missing areas
As these blocks were twice the required size, we had to cut them in half. After filling in the gap, we sealed the floor with three coats of hard wax.
