Parquet Floor Sanding Leeds

By woodfloo On July 27, 2017 Under Parquet Floors

Parquet flooring has an interesting past and stems from the French word parqueterie. Its history spans all the way back to the 1600’s. Parquet floors are essentially small blocks or strips of wooden boards that are laid to make a pattern. This pattern can be regular or geometric and can create some of the most spectacular floors and has been likened to mosaic floors.

Floor Sander LeedsWhilst it is often the advice that laying a parquet floor should not be an experience for a DIY’er, this is also the case for restoring them. Due to the way that they are laid and the fact that sometimes individual boards or blocks can be damaged, DIY restoration is steeped with challenges.

It may be that some blocks have become loose over time. Prior to any wood restoration or floor sanding work commencing, all boards should be checked to ensure that they are appropriately fixed.

We were asked to fully restore this beautiful Parquet floor in Leeds. This pattern type is called Herringbone and is arguably one of the most popular pattern types. It remains to be very popular and can be seen in many high-end properties.

Floor Sanding LeedsAs with many of our other completed jobs, this floor sanding work was part of a larger restoration project. The flooring has been unveiled and our client identified the potential in the floor straight away. They were incredibly accurate with their vision and once the old layers and coatings were removed, the beautiful boards were revealed.

The grain pattern and general quality of these boards were incredible. They had been hidden under other flooring types for so long that their potential had clearly been forgotten. We always look to offer advice on general cleaning once the boards have been restored and finished. Wood floors should be regularly cleaned using a hover and a damp cloth.
