When Do You Need Wood Floor Restoration?

A solid wood flooring makes a great impression and gives a classy edge to any residential or commercial space. While engineered floor or hardwood floor may look great when installed initially, but with time, their top layer starts getting damaged.

It’s normal to find dents, dust, and stains on the surface of an old hardwood floor or engineered floor. Superior quality solid wood flooring made from timbers of oak, pine, and maple can also get damaged with regular use and time.

When you start noticing worn out lamination causing wood exposed to the elements, you should start looking for a professional wooden flooring company. In such cases where the wood is not completely damaged, the restoration process can work wonders. The cost of floor renovation is also much lesser than opting for a new wood floor.

Wood floor restoration involves recovering the old tone, pattern, and colour of the surface of the timber. This process involves sanding, gap-filling, and finishing techniques. After the flooring company completes the renovation, a floor that was once dull and grey will look new, revealing the grains and patterns in the wood that wore out over the years and decades.

Professional Wooden Flooring Renovation Services

If the old wooden floor in your office or home is wearing out, you can renovate it to revive its natural look. You can try to do it by yourself at times. However, the more realistic and a wiser option is to call in a company like Floorox for their professional services. Our trained team will take care of the entire restoration process.

We help with carefully sanding the wood and remove a thin layer from the top to bring back the original condition of the timber. Then we ensure that the wood remains protected from external elements by using sealants. Lastly, we buff and polish the floor to give it a smooth and elegant texture.

Wood Floor Restoration Process

Wood floor restoration calls for a range of techniques based on the specific problems that you may face. When there are built-up layers of grime and varnish, you need sanding. That will remove the unwanted coating and restore the actual grain of the wood, or the colour it originally had.

Then we can go for a layer of oil or wax or seal to protect the look of the wood from fresh attacks of dirt. It also means that you save money since the alternative would be to rip out the old flooring and put in a new one, with new wood or wood substitute. Restoration will help you save the real quality of the existing timber.

Trained and Experienced Staff

Proper sanding and finishing of a wooden floor, especially parquet floor, is not learned by quick-fix courses. We have trained staff who have several years of experience in wood flooring work in the UK. We provide quality services because we believe that decent woodwork deserves a genuinely dedicated service.

Our 5-Step Process

Let us explain the basic steps involved in a hardwood floor or parquet floor restoration. A proper grasp over each part of the process will help you to understand what kind of repair costs you are looking at and decide on exactly how much budget to keep and what type of restoration or repair to plan. Our prices also vary depending on services at residential areas and schools or commercial places like gym, office, and restaurants in the United Kingdom.

Step 1: We either remove or punch in any protruding nails or tacks from the floorboards. This part allows us to work without injuring ourselves or our equipment.

Step 2: We do sanding throughout the floor several times using different types of grits to remove any old coating. This step reveals the actual wood and prepares it for restoration work.

Step 3: This is where we start the restoration. We ensure all gaps and spaces between the floorboards are covered so that dust, insects, or fluids cannot penetrate and ruin the wood. Then we do another round of sanding to get rid of excess gap-filling and smoothen the surface.

Step 4: In this step, we apply stains on the freshly sanded floor. You can choose the colour matching your room décor and taste. Our professionals can help you choose the best colour tailored to your requirement and budget.

Step 5: This is the last step where we apply a new finish and let it dry and set cleanly before restoring the normal use of the room.

Can You Do It Yourself?

The short answer is – yes, in some cases. However, you need a more elaborate answer. As we explained in the steps above, they may appear simple, and you may feel that by doing it yourself, perhaps with a few hired extra hands, you can save on the seemingly large bill you are being presented with. But before plunging into a DIY venture, think it over carefully.

Things to Consider Before Starting A DIY Project

Here are some important things you need to consider before starting a DIY wood floor restoration project:

Time and Cost: Yes. You will save money by not calling in professionals. But how much time will you require unless you are already trained in this? A DIY manual is easier to write than to apply in real life. That extra time you spend may mean money not earned elsewhere, the vacation not taken, etc. So, you need to work out whether the trade-off is worth your while.

Quality: Removing the finish is a tedious task, which in turn can be broken down into three components. Unless you are someone with a fair amount of training, you will end up with a rough job. And if you are a novice, it could even be a botched job forcing you to call a professional at a much higher cost than if you had called them in the first place.

Gain, though, you can do it yourself. If you have the skills, time, and patience. But if saving money is the main goal, and you ignore the degree of your skills, you may end up losing both time and money. So, we recommend hiring certified craftsmen, trained properly in providing you with the necessary services.
