Local Project: Sanding & Restoration of Oak Parquet Floor With Black Stains in North London

There are floors and floors. Some are better and some are worse. Their condition varies depending on the type of wood, the structure of the floor, the way it has been maintained and the type of damage it has suffered. This particular floor had it pretty bad. Its surface wasn’t simply worn, it was discoloured and a few places were covered in stains which suspiciously resembled those from a pet which had an ‘accident’. Given that the owner had a cat and a dog we thought it’s pointless to ask. In the end, it doesn’t matter, a stain is a stain and there is only one way to remove it, right?

The problem with urine stains is that they contain ammonia. This makes them capable of not only penetrating the floor finish but also soaking into the wood itself and remaining there as a black/grey stain which is very, very hard to remove. Such a stain can only be erased by thorough floor sanding but not always completely. Some stains are just too persistent.

One small complication was the fact that we had to sand a parquet. Why was this a problem? Well, the basic idea when sanding is that you have always to follow the grain of the wood in order to strip the surface evenly. If you attempt to go opposite of the grain, you risk tearing it and ruining the floor. How do you proceed, when the parquet is made from multiple wooden blocks with half facing a different direction? No matter what you do, one side of the blocks will always be sanded in the wrong direction. The answer is simple, we sand diagonally and strip both sides evenly. This way both receive the same treatment.

That was the hard part. The easy one is applying those 4 coats of Junckers HP Commercial. As the name suggests, this is a product intended for commercial purposes and able to withstand heavy traffic. Given that the homeowner has pets, the extra coats of such a hardwearing finish won't go to waste.

It wasn’t easy but we managed to get rid of those horrible grey and black stains. After taking a look at what it was before, can you really say it is the same floor if you didn’t know better? The transformation is complete. Sure seems like a brand new floor. Two days of hard work erased the decay of two decades! (Or at least this is how long it feels). We did a good job and we are proud of it!

Local Project: Floor Boards Sanding, Varnishing and Staining in North London

FlooringFirst! is a company with vast experience in the refurbishing of old wooden floors, during the years of hard working we have become experts in our craft. The following project is an example of our work, which includes:

  • Boards replacing
  • Sanding
  • Overall gap filling
  • Buffing
  • Staining
  • Varnishing

The condition of the flooring was not good at all, there were huge holes between the boards, the surface had many imperfections like scratches, scuffs and dents. Some of the planks were beyond repair, so they had to be replaced. For this purpose we stock seasoned boards, that will match the colour of the existing flooring, their width is 160mm. Once this was done, our team started with the floor sanding. This process happens in few stages with different sandpaper grits, that will level boards. After the old finishing layer was removed, our team applied samples from the different staining products on a small area of freshly sanded wood. This is how our clients ended up with the medium tones of light oak stain.

The next step after the sanding process is to fill the gaps between the boards. This process will keep the whole construction insulated. When the gaps were filled, buffing service is required, to smooth the surface and remove even the smaller imperfections. Before the sealant, our team had to spread the light oak stain all over the floor. For the final step we used 4 coats of the durable ‘Junckers HP Commercial’ lacquer in a satin sheen. This product is water-based, which means it’s fast drying and non-yellowing. The complete transformation of the flooring impressed even our guys, it took them 2 days to restore the natural beauty of these pine floorboards.

Local Project: North London Parquet Flooring Restoration in North London

Although this job didn't possess much difficulty when it comes to its complexity, our team of experienced professionals still didn't dare to underestimate the task. After the initial cost less and obligation-free site visit, the owner decided that he would pick our services, so we had no desire to disappoint him. The first step we undertook was to lift and dispose approximately of 15 square meters of carpets and laminate flooring, including underlays and grippers. This process was the most lengthy one during the preparation for the herringbone parquet installation. The rest of went quickly and smoothly, leaving our team with a blank canvas to work on.

Afterwards came the true part of the job we were hired for. The sub-floor was prepared and the parquet was laid in a herringbone pattern. The parquet for this job was provided by the client and it was properly acclimatized to the room it would be placed in. Then our fitters followed up with sanding, and then before the final sanding procedure, they displayed the different staining options in front of the client. After much deliberation, as any of the stains looked more than tempting, the client opted for a mahogany-coloured stain. The gaps between the blocks were filled with the residual dust from the sanding itself, and then came the time for staining and sealing. The product that was used for sealing was Junckers' HP Commercial with a Satin sheen. After all, was said and done, the owner was left with a beautiful parquet flooring, which he will be able to enjoy for years to come.
