Sanding exotic parquet floors Project in The Marist Schools | Mr Sander®

Posted on June 4, 2023

Floor Sanding Blogs


What was the job?

The Marist Schools in Sunninghill, Berkshire, are Catholic Day Schools for girls aged 2-18. The mahogany parquet flooring needed sanding in some corridors after being worn by the heavy footfall expected from a school.


Floors in schools are prone to being scuffed and damaged as they see a lot of foot traffic from active children and teens. In order to treat the scratches caused by rocks in shoes or running through the corridors, we had to wait until there weren’t any students around.

Ground floor corridor: 34.79 m2

First floor corridor: 35.04 m2

What we did

There were no pupils in the working area when we began work. The sanding process was straight-forward, the damage to the floors only being on the surface with no significant holes or gaps. The floors in the school are well-maintained. To preserve the quality of our work, we added two coats of base prime and three coats of clear commercial lacquer. This is more than we use on residential floors.

The results

The floors are back to great quality and resistant to scuffing. Because the floors are well-cared for, despite the school environment, they should last many years. After treatment, the floors suit the high reputation of the school.
