Choosing the right colour for you

Although a professionally sanded floor with a clear lacquer is really beautiful, you may want a change. You have the opportunity to choose a different colour for your newly sanded floor before we seal it with a lacquer of your choice. We can provide you with a sample of your chosen stain on your flooring before you decide.

However it is worth bearing in mind that different floor species absorb varnish more effectively than others. For example tight grained wood such as maple and birch traditionally have caused problems in the past. With twenty years experience under our belt we have perfected the art of staining and we have been getting fantastic results even with the more difficult of floors. An even application is paramount to ensure a beautiful finish. For more information call 087 205 4871.

Caring for your Floor

  • DO Sweep or vacuum regularly to removed dirt or grit that may scratch the floor.

  • DO Close windows when you’re expecting rain. Water can ruin the finish on your wood floor.

  • DO Put trays under potted plants and immediately wipe up any water you see. Water can penetrate deep into the wood and stain it.

  • DON'T Use area rugs with rubber or vinyl backing. Some materials in the backing can react with certain floor finishes, discoloring or causing the finish to become dull.

  • DON'T Expose hardwood to oils and alcohols, i.e nail polish remover & perfume which can dull and stain.

Floor Maintenance

Extend the life of your floor with a buff & recoat

Your floor boards are reduced in thickness every time you sand them, so it isn’t ideal to sand them too often. With a yearly ‘Buff and Recoat’ the existing coat of polyurethane is freshend up by top-coating it, meaning that the time between complete 'sanding and varnishing' is extended, and so extending the life of your floors.

Floor Protection

Limit damage to wood floors

One of the biggest flooring maintenance issues are scratches caused by furniture that is regularly moved back and forth across floor. There are many products available to combat this and we can advise on the type of protector that best suits your needs. Please ask your floor fitter for advice.
