Restoration and Sanding of Existing Floorboards
Gone with the old carpet and in with a beautiful, natural wood floor. Flooring Matters can help you with wooden floor restoration in Devon. Perhaps you have parquet flooring that you are looking to restore and cherish or you’ve just uncovered some original floorboards that are just waiting for some TLC to be brought back to life.
Sand an Engineered Wood Floor
If you’ve got an engineered wood floor that was laid a few years ago, it may well be ready to be rejuvenated. Life happens, and you can be forgiven for having a few scratches on your lovely wooden floor. Engineered wood is designed to be hard wearing and long lasting and may take several sands in its lifetime, the number of times engineered floors can be refinished depends on the thickness of the Veneer. If it is less than 2 millimeters thick it can tolerate a light scuff-sanding with a buffer. Thicker top layers can be sanded just like solid wood, allowing deeper scratches and dents to be removed.
With our virtually dust free sanders we can bring your engineered wood back to its former glory!

The process of sanding back a wooden floor:

- Sand back the wooden floor using our state of the art dust free sander
- Fill in any gaps with resin; different solutions are available, dependant on the size and nature of the gaps
- Next we add a stain or colour if required, or maybe a lime wash or whitening, the choice is yours. During our survey we can go through the different options with our colour charts. We can supply and install an industry approved stain to your newly refurbished floor.
- Then we would need to add protective coatings, lacquers, or oils. The final protective coating adds depth and will really enhance the grain and colours of your new look floor, as well as protecting it for many years to come
- For hard working commercial areas we recommend using a commercial grade lacquer to finish the job.
Maintenance of Wood Flooring
We offer a personalised maintenance routine to ensure your new look floor looks great for years to come.
We advise our customers to always use gentle cleaning products. Using harsh chemicals such as bleach floor cleaners could damage the protective lacquer. Wood is a natural product and should be treated with care – if you move or drag heavy objects across your wooden floor it will mark. We suggest that you add rugs or floor runners to areas that receive heavy wear such as kitchens or hallways.
