What was the job?

Harrods is a busy, world-famous department store. Its wood floors were in need of maintenance to preserve the upmarket reputation of the establishment. The oak wood floors required sanding, cleaning, buffing and vacuuming. Square metres

Fitting room 1: 2 m2

Fitting room 2: 2 m2

Lobby: 4.2 m2

Sports department 1– 70 m2 



ports department 2– 60 m2 

Time taken

2 nights


Harrods is a busy department store so work had to be carried out at night.  

The allotted time frame meant the work required efficiency and care. Work could not spill over into un-designated areas and disturb the business.

What we did

Before sanding, we cleared the areas to prevent damage and complete the work efficiently.

We then sanded the floors using a process that restricts the spreading of dust throughout a room or building.

We also stained a number of floors as specified by Harrods management. After the floors were sanded, they were then buffed and vacuumed in order to allow us to properly apply lacquer to the surface.

The results

The treatment of the wood floors in the Harrods department store was a complete success, with the floors sanded and stained to the high quality demanded.

Signs of wear and tear were removed and the floors were returned to a rich, glossy finish.
