What was the job?

Reading is a town in the county of Berkshire and we were happy to head over there to do some floor sanding recently. The floors and stairs of a residential property were damaged and needed sanding so they could look great again.


The floorboards in the home were discoloured and patchy. There was the possibility that just sanding would not solve this issue, as certain boards needed more attention than others. Working on steps poses more of a health and safety issue than the larger surface area of a floor. Areas:

Entrance Hallway- 7.6 m2 (pine floorboards – 17 cm)

Steps- 2 No. treads & risers

Time taken:

1 day

What we did

Despite first impressions, the floors were not subject to damages. This meant the actual sanding was routine without obstacles. After sanding, buffing and vacuuming the surface, we added a coat of stain to cover any remaining discolouration. The colour was then sealed by four coats of lacquer.

The results

After our work, the home is more inviting to guests and the property looks lived in rather than neglected. The tone of the wood is now a lot lighter and the colour more uniform. It looks newly fitted and should remain so if the owner commits to a routine maintenance schedule.
