By On October 26, 2016 No Comments

Attaining such high quality floor sanding work is such an honour for 1 Stop Floor Care. We have received a well-respected accolade for completing exceptional restoration work for wood floors.

What Can Professional Floor Sanders Offer?

As well as being flexible around existing business commitments, we are able to offer a fast and efficient service. Our aim is to offer an outstanding transformation whilst ensuring absolute minimal disruption. Down time for any business means a loss of earnings.

Commercial floor sander LancashireThis is often the reason why many businesses leave any floor restoration work for longer than necessary. It is thought that the loss of earnings is not worth the difference in the appearance of the wood floor. This is a skewed view because…

The appearance of your floors to visitors is important; if they are scratched and unattractive then it will provide a negative impression. This will be long-lasting. On the other hand, if a visitor enters your property and is faced with crisp, clean floors their association will be positive.

We were invited to restore this beautiful and historic wooden floor in Samlesbury Hall. Samlesbury Hall is a beautiful stately home in Preston, Lancashire. It was part of a larger project and provided an exemplary opportunity for us to showcase our skilled workmanship.

There are varying challenges faced for floor sanders when approaching any new job. No two wood floors are the same so this means that we need to draw on our experience to make sure that we produce the best finish.

Floor Sanding Tips:

Sanding wood floors PrestonIf you wood floor has developed gaps between the boards it is important that these issues are fixed prior to sanding the floors. If these gaps were left it would provide an uneven surface for the sanding process. More gaps and damage would likely appear and the best results would not be achieved.

Make sure to replace wooden boards that are too damaged to salvage. It is important that you carefully consider each board. If these are not replaced, it is likely to create more work further down the line. Do the job right!

Pine Floor OrmskirkIf your boards are sturdy and not damaged by rot or other factors then ensure that they are fixed properly. It is important to check that each board is suitably fixed to the sub floor. This may just take some time to nail them back down but this will make sure that they are secure.

Consider all products that are available; when repairing individual boards it is possible that small issues could be salvaged by some of the incredible product formulations that are available. These filler products require careful application but can produce incredible results.

Blue Wood Stain LancashireDon’t feel pressured to select a hugely different wood finish. It may be that your wooden floors offer a natural look but have been worn through years of use. When you acquire the assistance of a professional floor sander it does not mean that you have to select a drastic colour change.

It is important that all options are considered, but it is vital that if the wood colour you have suits the existing décor that you are not persuaded to select a drastic change. The wood floor restoration process offers an attractive and hard-wearing floor; even selecting a similar finish will provide a transformation.

We put this video together to show a recent job that we complete in the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. The images scroll through the process of sanding the wooden floors. The multi-coloured surface needed fully sanding as this was due to be replaced with a smooth, natural-looking wood finish.

The coloured top layer was stripped back in order to produce a primed surface for finishing. We discuss how wood finishes must be applied layer by layer and must be allowed to dry thoroughly in between each coat.

This is another element of commercial floor sanding that needs careful consideration; if the timescales allowed to complete the work it is imperative that the correct wood finish is selected. If an incorrect finish was selected, the project could easily over-run and therefore fall behind the targeted schedule.

Commercial Floor Sanding Lancashire

We were contracted to restore this tired wooden floor in a school hall in Lancashire. During the survey process we enquired about whether the floor had been restored previously.

We were then informed that the wood floor had been sanded and sealed less than three years ago by a builder carrying out work at the school. It was evident that the quality of the floor sanding was very poor.

The wood finish that they had used to seal the floor had already begun to wear through, leaving bare patches of wood showing. Overall the floor looked in a sorry state, however, we knew with our skilful and exhaustive sanding process that it could, once again, look great!

We were asked to re-sand the wood boards and to apply a wood finish that would provide a light and bright feel. We used a durable, high quality product that would stand the test of time.

We were invited to restore this incredible wood floor at the Forum in Barrow-in-Furness and are incredibly proud to showcase the transformation that was achieved for this stunning space.

The customer was considering recovering the wooden flooring with vinyl to hide the dated, dark glossy finish that had resulted from years of usage. In order for us to change the appearance of the floor, it was sanded using our dust free floor sanding system that offers a virtually dust free sanding process. This revolutionary system is incredibly popular with superior results achieved consistently.

Initially, we then coated the wood floor with a tinted primer designed to lighten the wood, leaving it with a more natural looking finish. Following this the floor was finished with three coats of hard wearing commercial matt lacquer that gave the floor an enhanced durable finish that will last for years to come.

We were asked to completely restore and seal 150m2 of reclaimed maple flooring in Buckley Theatre School in Wigan. It was a great job to start the New Year with and we photographed the progress of the work from start to finish.

The wooden floor was originally taken from Lancaster University and the Theatre School had the opportunity of relaying it; a cost-effective and respectful restoration in introducing historic and carefully crafted wooden floor boards to their studio.

We discussed the process of floor sanding with our clients and we were careful to reduce disruption to the school. Our professional approach was duly noted and the job was completed from start to finish in 2 ½ days.

Wood Restoration WiganWe also wanted to make sure that we provided an incredibly hard-wearing and long-lasting finish so it was advised that the wood floor should be finished with a very hard-wearing two pack commercial floor lacquer. This finish would not only make sure the floor remained looking like-new but it would stand up to the usage within the studio.

The maple floor, when restored, completely altered the look of the studio and it projected the right image of the Theatre School.

Floor Sanding in Blenheim Palace

One thing that time-served experience allows you the benefit of is opportunities to complete floor sanding jobs all over the country. Demand for our services enabled us to restore the wood flooring in Blenheim Palace, one of the most incredible and historical buildings in the UK.

Commercial floor sanding requires a different approach to that of our domestic clients. Historical buildings require further understanding and appreciation of their delicacies and the importance of skilful precision and care.

A number of wood floors throughout the building required restoring and the pictures below show evidence of the incredible results that were achieved. Our Company was carefully selected due to our experience, knowledge of the trade and our ability to complete the work to the highest possible standards.

Pitch pine floors are incredibly popular and are known for their heat retention. They are strong and durable and improves with time as the colours deepen. However, over time this pitch pine flooring had suffered from general wear and tear. The boards were looking terribly scruffy and it did not offer any benefit to their surroundings.

The wood sanding process completely eliminates this and prepares the flooring to be finished. Scratches, scuffs and markings are carefully sanded away with our industrial floor sanding machinery. The boards were then sealed with a coloured hard wax oil.

We are specialist floor sanding specialists based in Chorley, Lancashire. We have built up a positive local reputation and have had the benefit of customer references and recommendations. This means that our services are sometimes requested further afield.

Floor Sander PrestonWe were invited to be part of a large flooring restoration project in The Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh. Vast expanses of wooden flooring have huge impact and are both attractive and require relative low maintenance and upkeep with the right advice.

Floor restoration requires specialist machinery, products and in-depth knowledge of the correct process. This combined with an appreciation and understanding of how commercial floor sanding differs in requirements from that of a domestic job is imperative.

The first part of the process involved the use of an industrial belt sander which striped down the wood floor. Varying levels of grits were then used in order to remove scratches, stains and old treatments, left on the boards.

Floor Sanding PrestonEdging sanders were then used by hand to achieve a seamlessly consistent finish. Once this process had been accomplished, wood repairs were completed which involved filling gaps and cracks in individual boards.

A buffing sander was then used to achieve a smooth surface ready for the finishing process. An application of oil, wax or lacquer can then offer the brilliant result that you can see in this picture. This is an incredibly important part of the process and we will take time to discuss your options with you; this will ensure you achieve the right look.

If you would like more information on our floor sanding services please call on 01257 270775. We will be happy to offer information and advice on the floor sanding process and what restoration results can be achieved.
