Step 1 – Room Preparation Due to Health & Safety and insurance restrictions, we ask you to move all loose wires, furniture, and breakable items from the areas to be restored. On arrival, our craftsmen will lay protection on the flooring that is not being restored when entering or bringing equipment into your premises. This will be followed by protection of skirting boards and wall coverings using low-tack tape, waterproof plastic, and/or waxed paper. This will prevent the unlikely possibility of any overspray or damage to the surrounding areas.
Step 2 – Vacuum floor We then power vacuum the entire floor area using HEPA filtration vacuum cleaners. This will ensure the complete removal of loose dirt and dust. Apart from being more powerful than normal vacuum cleaners, HEPA filters are used to prevent any unwanted odors from being released into the room.
Step 3 – Dry Mop Dry mopping takes place in all areas with large 100% cotton mops to ensure any remaining soils are removed, and ready for sanding.
Step 4 – Sanding A professional-grade abrasive screen disc sanding machine is employed. The process is virtually dust free with no obnoxious odors. Our craftsmen carefully use an overlapping process to ensure the complete removal of any old seal coatings, dirt, and soil, leaving an extremely uniform finish in readiness for the next stage of the process.
Step 5 – Edges And Corners Here we use a specially designed machine which is used to ensure the correct blending of perimeter and main floor areas.
Step 6 – Making area dust free On completion of the sanding process, the team will sweep, vacuum and dust all areas to eliminate any remaining dust contamination in readiness for the next process of deep cleaning, prior to applying the all-important and stunning floor seal finishing treatments
Step 7 – Deep cleaning Using a soft cloth dampened with mineral spirits, we wipe clean the entire floor for more in-depth cleaning, removing any remaining dust contamination
Step 8 – Ventilate area We will then open all windows to ventilate the area and apply a selected seal finish product in an unobtrusive area to ensure color is to your satisfaction.
Step 9 – Wood product application As accredited Pallmann applicators we use the finest wood floor finishes available, and will carefully and delicately apply even coats of the selected wood floor finish using specialized rollers and edging brushes – we recommend and use the highest quality strengthening lacquer, which bonds to the wood floor finish creating an incredible protective finish, providing durability and ease of maintenance.
Step 10 – Final clean-down Once the restoration and finishing are complete we ensure your business or home is back to how it should be, our team carefully clean down all the areas we have worked in to ensure your satisfaction.
