Unfortunately, the staff had not been notified by anyone, so the small particles of glass were pounded and ground in to their wooden floor! The manager was pretty upset as you could imagine!

To add to their problems there was a wedding function booked in for the next day at lunch time! So we went in to action over the bank holiday to help get their floor back to a reasonable state of repair so that the damage didn’t impact too much on their lovely surroundings.

Cleaning Vinyl Floors County Durham

By On March 28, 2017 No Comments

Vinyl flooring has, at some times, been considered old-fashioned. With modern products this is now much different. This flooring type offers a huge variety of colours, patterns and textures. Advancements in the products available have meant that they are incredibly hard wearing whilst also offering a striking appearance.

To have a flooring product that replicates other types but has the added benefit of ease of maintenance and durability is a great solution. Vinyl flooring is a manufactured floor type and is available in sheets, tiles and boards.

Cleaning Amtico DarlingtonIt is a fair point to state that more expensive variations offer better resistance against staining, scratches, tears and gouges. Some variations have specialist backings in order to support this. Most come with extensive warranties in relation to their performance.

Even the highest quality vinyl floors will suffer daily wear and will therefore inevitably require the assistance of a professional restorer. This is where we come in with our extensive experience and knowledge of cleaning vinyl floors.

It is vital that any vinyl cleaner has the ability to identify any previous coatings. These coatings need to be protected during regular cleaning. However, they would require removal during a full restoration project.

The removed coatings uncover the actual vinyl product. This obviously needs to be recoated in order to offer future protection against wear and tear. We have a variety of product formulations that offer best-possible resistance.

Even more so it means that your vinyl floor is restored to looking like new. This means that they will look great and offer a barrier against liquid, wear and general use.

Wood Floor Restoration TeesideOur floor sanding machinery is powerful enough to strip back adhesives and glues that may be present. This may be an additional challenge but should not put you off considering restoring your wood floors.

The floor sanding process strips back the top layers of the surface. This means that dents, scratches and worn areas can be phased out and a fresh layer revealed. Some of our clients are often shocked by this process.

The quotation and survey process forms the opportunity for us to view the actual floor. We are then able to discuss many elements of the job, including:

  • Any anticipated challenges
  • The expected results
  • Product formulations that will be used during the process
  • The actual sanding process and what is involved

There may be areas that require additional work to ensure that the end result is seamlessly smooth. Rest assured that our experience allows us the confidence to achieve the best-possible result.
