We were called out to a local hotel that had unfortunately experienced a terrible event at one of their functions. They explained that a patron had broken a glass on their packed Oak dance floor on their Friday night party!

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.

Wood Floor Sanding Tips County Durham

Through our experience with sanding wooden floors we have come across many individuals with questions about the service we provide. This may mean that they have made incorrect assumptions or are not aware of the transformations that can be achieved. Here are some of the frequently asked questions we have come across:

Is my wood floor past redemption?

Oak Flooring County DurhamMany of the wood floors that we survey are in bad condition. They may have been hidden under another floor covering or have experienced high usage. Some floors are dented, scratched or worn in entry areas.

The likelihood is that if you are considering wood floor restoration that they have been neglected and seen better days. The floor sanding process takes away the top layers of wood. This reveals a smooth and clean surface so it is incredibly unlikely that your floor is past the point of redemption.

How long does floor sanding take?

Our dust free floor sanding provision is fast and efficient. This does not mean that it is rushed; we have invested in state-of-the-art machinery so that the process is completed in the best possible way. An average room will likely take two to three days from start to finish. This may depend on whether there are many wood repairs or specific problems that need to be fixed prior to sanding.

What benefits will a newly sanded floor offer?

Newly finished wooden floors not only look great but they offer a practical and hygienic alternative. They will not harbour dirt and bacteria such as carpets and the offer straightforward maintenance and cleaning. Wood floors are also known for their ability to conduct heat; they are warmer underfoot than other floor coverings such as natural stone.

If you have any other questions about floor sanding then we would invite you to call today on 0808 118 5747.



Sanding Oak Floors Harrogate

It is inevitable that every floor we restore has a story; whether this is linked to its history or owners. But it is very rewarding and aspiring to be offered a job such as this.

Absolutely Floor Restore Couty DurhamWe were contracted to restore some oak floors in a lovely lady and gentleman’s home near Harrogate. After discussion it was revealed that Lynda, our client, was one of the original Calendar Girls.

Throughout the completion of the work we were awarded the opportunity to discuss their charity work and the astounding amount of money that they have raised for such important causes over the years.

To date they have managed to raise a life-changing £4,000,000 for the charity Leukaemia Research (now known as Blood Wise). This inspirational charity helps to provide valuable funds to go towards improving the lives of patients affected by blood cancers.

It was brilliant to meet such an exceptional couple and they were so pleased with the work that we completed for them.

When we arrived, the wooden flooring had suffered from many years of usage and the wood finish was too dark. It was decided that a lighter finish would complement the surrounding décor and would brighten the spaces where the wooden floor was fitted.

We used our revolutionary dust free sanding system to complete the work; this provides a smooth, even surface, ready for the finish to be applied. Once the old finish had started to be stripped away, it was quickly clear that the wood floors underneath were in a good condition and would benefit tremendously from our wood restoration services.
