We were called to restore these original pine boards. Due to repeated interventions during the past decades of plumbers and electricians the degradation process was accelerated for this floor.
Small surfaces are always a bit demanding compared larger ones because the details become of crucial importance. For this instance the integrated doormat and the seamless door sill helped to give the impression of a much bigger space.
We were honoured to be chosen for such an important project: to restore the cork floor on aisles at the Metropolitan Tabernacle. The main purpose of this floor is to dampen the foot fall noise.
A new atmosphere was brought into this home with this superb wooden floor. Our client, a designer herself, carefully selected these boards for their colour, texture and character having in mind our recommendation for quality manufactured ones.
A regular cleaning routine will simplify your floor care. Everyday dust and dirt are your floors worst enemy, dust mop, vacuum or sweep regularly. This also serves as regular visual inspection of the floor surface so any potential risk will be noticed.
Previously lacquered floors will need to periodically be re-finished. If the floor has been maintained using wax-based polish or similar, the floor will have to be sanded back to bare wood prior to a new lacquer application. If just cleaners or freshening products were used it is possible to apply further coats of finish just with a light sanding. The floor must be cleaned and lightly abraded.
Even with the simple projects our approach is the same. The project consisted in wooden flooring installation in two bedrooms with undercutting the skirting. Although the bedrooms were separated with the carpeted hallway we kept the same alignment.
