Professional Parquet Floor Sanding in St Mary’s Primary School by Mr Sander®

Posted on June 3, 2023

Floor Sanding Blogs


What was the job?

St Mary’s RC Primary School is a Catholic school in Kilburn, London. Two of the school halls needed sanding for their parquet floors after being worn and scratched by heavy foot traffic.


The working areas were quite large which meant, even without obstructions, the job would be time consuming. We also had to wait until there were no classes before we were able to start sanding.

How the floor looked before we started work


What we did

We ensured there were no loose blocks or significant damages before beginning work. As there were no obstacles such as furniture, pillars or curved walls, the job was straight-forward.

We sanded the surfaces using dust free machines and the buffed and vacuumed any excess that may have been left behind. Both surfaces were treated with two coats of base prime and then three coats of clear heavy duty lacquer.

The results

The heavy duty lacquer prepared the floors for another school year with a lot of activity.

With steady maintenance, the floors should remain at such a high quality. Some minor damages are inevitable but they do not have to compromise the overall finish.
