Parquet floors are considered to be beautiful and sophisticated. Many of which can be found in premises such as schools, churches, universities and other cultured buildings. This often means that the owners of the buildings are very adoring of their floor. This is where restoration plays such a pivotal role.
We were contacted about restoring this parquet flooring in Leeds. Our clients were unsure of what the floor would look like once it had been sanded. This was due to the fact that the dirt build-up had occurred over many years.
We arranged to complete a survey of this floor and as part of this we discussed completing a sample area. This would allow us the opportunity to show our clients the transformation that could be achieved.
All old coatings and the surface layer of the wood was removed with our sanding machinery. The process to complete the wood sanding sample was relatively quick. However, the results were extreme.
The individual boards were stripped back of the dirt that had built up over so many years. At this point our client commented that they didn’t even realise that their floor was naturally that colour.
From this point we were able to discuss wood finishes that would best compliment their individual usage. Any floor in a commercial setting needs to be finished with a hard-wearing and long-lasting wood finish.
This means that our clients receive true value for money. We are specialist commercial floor sanders and we are able to offer comprehensive services for both large and small wood floor restoration jobs.
Whatever the size of the job we will always go the extra mile to ensure that finish is second-to-none. You, our client, will be treated with respect and we will endeavour to ensure the process runs smoothly from start to finish.

When making the decision to lay a wood floor, it is important that you strive to fit the best-quality wood that fits within your individual budget. This advice is for a number of reasons but will leave you with a better looking floor, for longer.
There is no doubt that there is a comprehensive product selection available for both hardwood flooring and soft wood flooring alternatives. So look for a manufacturer or supplier that will offer the highest quality, individual customisation and competitive pricing.
Wood floors in commercial settings are going to experience high foot traffic, exceptional levels of wear and tear and a general disregard to the general care of the floor by visitors. Therefore a hardwood alternative would be best-suited to a commercial environment.

Social places such as this one tend to be similarly decorated because of a few different reasons; it provides a great look, warmth and acoustic benefits.

Here is some interesting information about wood floors;
- It is believed that estate agencies in the UK state that homes with wood floors sell much faster and for more money than those without
- It was almost a century ago that the first mechanical sanding machine was built
- Solid boards can be refinished upwards of ten times
- With correct care a wood floor is likely to be able to last a lifetime
- A harder wood is less likely to suffer dents
This image shows a wood floor sanding job that we completed in Leeds. When we arrived to complete the work the boards were in a very deteriorated state. We were unable to save some of the boards so we completed repairs where the wood boards were rotten.
This provided us with healthy boards, capable to deal with the floor sanding process and able to stand the test of time once refinished.
The entire floor was then sanded with our top of the range dust free sanding system. It is an understatement to say that the technology behind sanding wood floors has come on leaps and bounds in recent years.
Every advancement allows us, professional sanders, to continuously ensure that we’re offering the most superior service available. Some of the machinery that we use can be seen in these images. Investment in such equipment is pivotal to the overall success of our workmanship.
Once the sanding process had been completed the boards were finished with a durable and long-lasting wood finish. The wood floor was almost unrecognisable after completion and the images show just that.
We serve all areas between Leeds, Lincoln and Hull. Demand for our services has taken us further afield so if you would like to request a detailed quotation we would urge you to call 0845 4599941.

A wood floor that is laid in a busy commercial setting is likely to become worn and dull, leaving a less than impressive floor. The likelihood is that if wooden floors are laid in your business property that it was selected due to its durability and natural appearance.
Even the most durable wood floors require attention to ensure that they are kept looking at their best. It is important to maintain the professional appearance of your business and a beautifully restored wood floor will make a positive statement to both clients and employees alike.
We were invited to restore this floor in a local gymnasium. There was a regular high rate of footfall into the studio which meant that it had become worn. Moving equipment had scratched the surface and the wood finish had discoloured slightly, making it look outdated and unsightly.
We arranged a time when it would have least effect on the business and completed our tailored floor sanding service to the entire floor.
The work was carried out in a timely manner and we made sure to apply a durable wood finish that was compatible to this type of commercial setting.
We work with a diverse range of clients; we aim to go the extra mile for every project, whether domestic or commercial. Our commercial clients include schools, universities, sports halls, restaurants, care homes, hotels and bars to name a few.
Our portfolio, showcased through our floor sanding blog is a true reflection of the range of works that we take on. We are confident that you will be astounded by the transformation that is achievable with our services.

To restore a wood floor to their originally-laid natural beauty is something that we take great pride in. We are deeply passionate about wood floors and this drives us to approach each and every job with the utmost respect.
It also means that we get the opportunity to employ our skilled craftsmanship to provide the best-achievable results. This formed the base of our approach with this floor sanding job that we completed in a pub in Leeds.
The wooden floor was extensively damaged through years of use and heavy foot traffic. We completed a comprehensive survey which allowed us to provide an accurate quotation for the completion of the works. It is also an opportunity to discuss our guidance and recommendations.
Our industrial strength sanding equipment was then used to achieve a smooth finish. Our clients were particularly pleased to hear that we employed the use of a revolutionary dust free floor sanding system. This was important as it would virtually eliminate the residual dust created, reducing the clean-up time after the project was completed.
The finish needs to be tailored to match the individual requirements of the space that is being restored. This provides a floor that is both aesthetically pleasing but that is long-lasting and functional.
We strongly believe that consistently striving to offer the best results and service has aided the natural growth of our family-run business. We invite you to call on 0845 4599941 to request a FREE no obligation survey.
