BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL!
A natural wood floor enhances all kinds of property – domestic and commercial. Beautiful and durable; hygienic and easy to maintain; a wood floor is both an investment and an asset.
But it’s a feature that needs looking after. When neglected, sad, tired, damaged or rotten, it can become a liability.
The solution? Modern sanding and refinishing to bring it back to the beauty of the original.
Beautiful and durable, hygienic and easy to care for – you probably already know about the advantages of having a wood floor in your home or business. A wood floor is both an investment and an asset that can add real value to your home, makes a rental property more attractive to tenants, or gives the reception area of your business that instant ‘wow’ factor.
But that fabulous wood floor needs looking after if it’s going to stay looking fabulous. And that’s where we can help.

Once we’re sure every last bit of dust has been swept up and the room is in pristine condition, we’ll provide you with a free wood floor care kit and leave you to enjoy your beautifully restored wooden floor.

You don’t just have to settle for plain wooden floors any more. With a huge selection of organic waxes, stains and colour processes, you can have almost any colour you want on your floor. We try to use organic and natural products where possible. Traditional wood stains are often solvent or oil-based. However, today there are a number of modern water-based stains now available. These are safe and odour-free with colours ranging from traditional wood colours to contemporary pigmenting including white, red, blue or even pink – perfect for a child’s bedroom! Why not have a look at our gallery and see what kind of fabulous finishes we’ve achieved in our customers’ homes and businesses?
At Refinishing Wood Floors Co., we believe that a job isn’t finished until we’ve cleaned up and left your home or business looking as tidy as it was when we walked in. We use the very latest sanding equipment that captures 90% of the dust as it works, so you don’t have clouds of dirt billowing around your home or office. We also make sure that a key part of our preparation is to clear the room of any furniture, put dust sheets over any remaining items, and tape windows and doors to stop any small amounts of dust we generate from migrating to other parts of your home.
By its very nature, sanding wooden floors generates dust, but by using the very latest equipment we capture the vast majority of that at source.
The process takes around a day to complete, and a further 1-2 days to allow any stains, polishes, waxes or lacquer top coats to dry properly. You should then be able to move your furniture back into the room and start using it again, keeping inconvenience down to a minimum.
Sanding wooden floors has some surprising benefits, both for your well-being and your bank balance. Carpets harbour dust and bacteria, making them a nightmare for anyone who suffers from respiratory problems such as asthma and allergies. Take away the carpets and you take away the dust, creating a cleaner, healthier environment for you and your family.
It’s also much easier to clean wooden floors – a weekly wash with a damp mop eliminates bacteria that can find a home in a carpet, while spills are simply wiped away with a cloth. So you’ll also save time on your housework, giving you more time to spend with your family.
Refinishing wood floors and bringing them back to their original glory can also be a real investment in your home. Wooden floors are hugely popular among homeowners now, and if you’re planning to sell your home then a beautifully refurbished wooden floor can give it real ‘buyer appeal’ and even increase the value of your property.
Make a great first impression the minute your customers or visitors walk through the door. A wooden floor is easy to maintain and gives you instant visual impact in any foyer, reception area or shop. For areas with heavy footfall, they’re also much easier to keep clean and looking fabulous than carpets.
They show you care about your business, and that you care enough to make your working environment as pleasant as possible for you, your employees and your visitors. You only get one chance to make a good impression, and a pristine wooden floor has real impact from the moment you step through the door.
Wooden floors don’t just look great, they’re hardwearing too. So most schools have robust wooden floors and parquet tiles in halls, classrooms and corridors. They do tend to put up with a lot of punishment, though, so during half-term or the school holidays, call us in to restore, repair and revive your wooden floors in plenty of time for the start of the new term.
If you compare how much you’d pay to re-carpet your home, refurbishing wooden floors actually represents a cost-effective and affordable alternative. We always make sure we’re working to your budget, which is why we’ll never pressurise you into accepting services you don’t need or want.
Our quotes are transparent and crystal clear from the outset, so you know exactly what you’re paying before we even start work. And we’ll ever add on any extras or spring any ‘surprise’ costs on you. What you see on that free, no-obligation quote is what you’ll pay. Guaranteed.
Once we’ve finished restoring your wooden floor, we’ll be here for you to keep it looking fabulous for years to come. We don’t just sand and restore wooden floors – we also offer a full maintenance service including polishing and repairs for both homeowners and businesses. If your wooden floors need regular maintenance, then why not talk to us about arranging regular visits from our quality care team?
It’s easy to get the ball rolling. Simply call us direct and talk to one of our friendly team to arrange your free, no-obligation survey and quote. Or use our Get A Quote service for an instant online response. Whatever your floor needs, the Refinishing Wood Floors Company is here to help.
You’ll also save money on carpets, which usually need to be replaced every few years. Instead, simply book a yearly polish and you’ll keep your restored wooden floor looking fabulous for a fraction of the cost.
For businesses and corporate clients, we can work to your schedule to minimise disruption. So for example we can work at evenings and weekends when your workplace is empty, or for schools we can arrange to work on your wood floors during the holidays, so there’s absolutely no impact on your day-to-day operations.
There are lots of reasons why wood flooring is so popular: it’s attractive, affordable and eco-friendly - and with so many different styles and finishes to choose from, it’s easy to find a wood floor as unique as you are.
Regardless of whether you opt for a traditional hardwood timber floor or ornate parquet flooring, one thing remains true: you need to regularly clean and maintain your flooring to keep it looking at its best.
Wood floor maintenance tips
Regularly sweeping or vacuuming your floor, preferably with a soft broom or bristle attachment, will help to prevent any dirt and dust build-ups which run the risk of scratching the surface of the wood. If your wood flooring is already sufficiently scratched, you may want to consider using the services of a floor sanding company to smooth it out.
• Protection from sunlight
UV rays from bright sunlight can cause your wooden floor surfaces to fade. The excess heat from the sun can also warp the shape of the wood, creating an uneven surface. Protective window coverings or simply curtains can block out the light, although it’s worth understanding that wooden floors will naturally fade and become uneven over time.
• Mats and rugs
Good quality floor coverings in high-traffic areas like doorways or in front of the sofa will help to collect tracked-in dirt and help to reduce wear and tear on the floor.
Things to avoid
• Don’t walk on your hardwood flooring with heeled or spiked shoes
• Try to resist cleaning with liquids – even water!
• Avoid using harsh cleaning tools like scouring pads.
Of course, it might be the case that your hardwood floor is in a state of disrepair to the point where it requires some restoration. If you’re intending to strip the floor back, be aware that wood flooring repair can be a somewhat tricky task. Great care and attention should be taken when sanding floorboards.
If DIY floor sanding seems too daunting a task, why not consider the Refinishing Wood Floors Co? As certified members of the Wood Flooring Association, you can expect professionalism and a job well done – your floor will be looking perfect in no time. Give us a call today.
