Floor sanding of parquet flooring in Bromley

Before the works...

The merbau parquet flooring in this Bromley Property was overall looking tired and in urgent need of restoration. During our initial survey, we did detailed inspection of the floors and discussed with the client all possible options.

Our client has decided to go for floor sanding, of 15 sqm merbau parquet flooring and finishing the floors in matt Lacquer.

How the renovation of the floors went...

Parquet flooring renovation requires years of experience, skills and the right restoration equipment. Depending on the overall condition of the floors, the initial parquet floor sanding may start with coarser or medium grid. The task of this stage is not only to remove the previous finish and get the floors to bare wood, but also to provide a perfect level throughout the entire floor. Some older parquet floors may require more thorough work at this time.

Sanding the floors with fine grids (80 - 120 gr) and a good rotary buff to the merbau timber surface with high grid buffing screens is the most important stage in the preparation of the wooden flooring for finishing.

The parquet flooring was consequently sealed with 1 coat of primer and 2 coats of Bona Mega Lacquer in matt sheen with another light screen buff between the coats, for an excellent final touch to the finish.

Did you know this about merbau flooring?

Merbau has dark rich red colour and sometimes, our clients will ask us to whiten it or "bleach" the merbau floors. We do not do that, to merbau. We tried it, but it's stubborn and we recommend to keep you merbau floors in the natural colour domain.
