Quality Floor Sanding You Can Trust

School Floor Maintenance

Affordable School Floor Maintenance

Your school floors have to put up with a lot of wear from the enthusiastic yet careless feet of youth.

Although most popular in school and college sports halls and gyms, the traditional wooden floor enhances assembly halls, classrooms, music rooms, and entrance halls. It ranges from pine flooring planks; hardwood boards of oak or beech; blocks of parquet, herringbone, or finger mosaic.

Maintenance is an essential part of ensuring that your floor gives the service required over a long period. A lightly worn Floor can be freshened up with a light sanding and the application of a fresh layer of sealant.

Modern lacquers are a far cry from the old-fashioned floor varnish with its ‘plastic’ look. They are exceptionally hard-wearing and, as many are now water-based, both quick-drying and completely safe in all environments.

When your floor is more seriously marked or damaged, a complete restoration is needed. This entails stripping away the old paint, dirt, and sealant. The smooth, level surface is then ready for a new protective layer.

When done by experts, this is a sound investment, with your floor offering splendid service for years. A shiny fresh service not only looks good on the eye: it adds value to the property – and gives a sense of pride to staff and students in their school environment.

Choose Sanding Wood Floors – a family company who have restored hundreds of floors for over twenty years. School floors form a major part of our regular services. You will benefit both from our special school floor sanding rates and our tried and tested commercial-grade products. These are designed for high-traffic areas – and are only available to the trade.
