We are Frequently asked the following 🙂
For peace of mind, please browse our FAQs to give you an idea of everything that you need to know about how professional floor restoration should be done …
WILL THERE BE DUST?
Let’s face it dust is a known enemy. There will always be dust … it’s how we cope with it that counts. We only use the best professional BONA equipment on the market, where auto dust collection is a key component of the job at hand … our operators are fully trained with the cleanliness mantra … you will know that we have room condition at the top of our list.
WILL THERE BE NOISE?
The job is pretty noisy throughout, due to the extraction units and the sanding machines that we use . Small children and animals might not like the noise but overall the majority of customers aren’t phased.
WHAT ABOUT THE GAPS?
Never Mind the Gaps – We can use the sawdust from the floors to mix with a “mix & fill” solution to fill small gaps and imperfections. If there are larger holes/gaps that need to be filled, then we have a supply of ECO firendly reclaimed timbers that can be used to cover most situations.
HOW SKILLED ARE YOUR GUYS?
If your floors are uneven, damaged from excessive use or in a bad shape in anyway, we have the guys that are experienced craftsman and highly skilled in delivering a high-quality finish on all surfaces. It is wise to check the work and the credentials of anyone that you work with on your valuable flooring projects.
HOW DO I preparE A ROOM?
To ensure the most streamlined of service, we prefer that all rooms to be cleaned or restored are empty, except of course, where large immovable objects such as pianos or snooker tables are in residence. We can always work around more challenging situations, but it sure makes it easy to work with an empty starting space.
WHat happens during the project?
Before work commences we will go through a schedule of works, which will include timescales. We can help with removing/storing furniture during the project. The floor will then be restored back to its former glory. We will advise on finishes and provide samples where necessary. Depending on what finish is chosen there will be a curing process to follow, once this has happened, the furniture can then be moved back into the room.
WHEN DO I GET THE ROOM BACK?
This depends on the chosen finish. The curing process of Hardwax oils or lacquers vary a lot.
The average curing time is between 24/36 hours
WHAT CAN BE CHANGED?
Once the floor has been sanded, you can choose from a selection of tints and finishes. We often use a tint to colour the floor first, and then apply a clear finish over the top to give you your chosen sheen level.
