Sanding and Staining Wood Floors Project in Hackney | Mr Sander®

Floor Sanding Blogs


What was the job?

We travelled to Hackney to help repair the parquet floors in a lovely flat.

The floor had become discoloured and needed to be restored to former glory.


Not only was the floor patchy, there were also warped areas which required extra sanding. As we were working in a family home, there were obstacles to account for and avoid damaging. Areas:

Entrance hallway- 10.5 m2 

Kitchen- 3.3 m2

Bathroom- 3.6 m2

Lounge- 25.2 m2

What we did

With a clear working area, we ensured all blocks were secure before beginning the sanding process. Our machines are dust free so we did not need to worry too much about polluting the home. 

After any excess was buffed and vacuumed away, we applied a layer of light oak before sealing the colour with four coats of clear lacquer.

The results

The floor looks a lot newer and the boards are even. With a maintenance routine, the lifespan of the parquet blocks should be considerably extended. The lacquer should leave them more resilient to the standard scratches expected from day-to-day movement around the home.
