This is a great opportunity to discuss the careful restoration of parquet floors and the importance of restoring its natural uniqueness. It is often an incredible surprise to remove a carpet during a renovation project to reveal an original parquet floor, hiding beneath.
It is inevitable that the parquet blocks will require a full restoration service as being covered for many years will result in many problems that must be tackled in order to get its looking at its best.
This was certainly the case with this floor sanding job that we took on in Lincoln. All loose blocks were fully fixed. These can be identified by visible movement or by hollow sounds.
Older floors may have been fitted or fixed with different products. It is therefore important that this is recognised and the appropriate cleaning products are selected to compliment the restoration process.
Our industrial sanding machinery is used with varying grit sandpapers to produce an even finish. It is an inevitable part of the job that this process requires a lot more effort if the wooden boards are covered with carpet adhesive.
An edging tool is then used to ensure that an even finish is produced. Alongside the sanding process all gaps and possible cracks are filled. Numerous rounds of sanding prepared the wood floor for the finish that was selected by our client.
We then advised our clients that no furniture should be replaced within the room until the floor was fully dried. This ensures that no damage is caused either to the wooden flooring or to our clients’ personal belongings.
The end result was a beautifully restored and durable parquet floor that is easy to maintain and provides a striking statement.
