Floor Sanding Blogs


What was the job?

The pine floorboards in a Croydon property needed sanding and staining as the homeowner had removed their carpets and wanted a lovely wood floor in their dining room.
There were some significant gaps between floorboards which had to be filled before staining. The customer also had a variety of stains to choose from and requested to see what each looked like on their floor.
Area: Dining room: 13.3 m2 Time taken: 1 day

What we did

Before work began, we cleared the clutter from the room so as to not delay the work. After sanding using dust-free machines, we filled gaps with a resin and sawdust mix. This made the floor appear as new and prevented dust falling through the floorboards during our work.

Samples of stain were applied to the floor for the customer to choose from.
Before the medium oak stain was applied, we buffed and vacuumed to ensure no debris would be stained and lacquered into the floor. One coat of stain was applied and then four of lacquer.

The results

The lighter Medium Oak stain compliments the neutral colour of the room and the choice of matt lacquer means the floor does not reflect too much light from the glass door. We’re pleased to say the homeowner was very happy with how their floor turned out and said they would be inviting guests over to show it off very soon!
