Our client found this stunning floor hidden under the carpet of their Victorian era house. Unsure if anything could be done with it, they called in L.F.R. The floor posed a few notable problems, from uneven and broken boards, to heavy layers of oil, wax, varnish and paint. To tackle this tough job, LFR firstly repaired the floor, given it the much needed structural integrity for the aggressive sanding that was required to strip the floor back and level it out. To complete this restoration, LFR used a silk matt lacquer to meet our clients design brief.
LFR were called to inspect this Cherry wood floor which had been damaged as a result of a slow leak. LFR were able to transform this floor from damaged tired, and dull to as good as new in just one working day. In order to deliver the transformation our expert team sanded the wooden floor back, stained the wood a uniform colour throughout and sealed the floor with an enhancing primer.
The staining on this floor had been caused by a nervous rescue dog who hadn’t quite mastered house training. Ammonia in the dogs urine had created stains so deep that the grain of the wood had been penetrated. To restore this floor to its former glory, LFR used industrial floor sanding machines and high grade sanding paper, combined with a specialist wood bleach treatment. Once the floor was stain free; the transformation was completed with a natural looking polyurethane finish.
Our client had been advised to condemn this floor, which would have been costly and time consuming.
This floor had been subjected to extensive water damage from leaks resulting in warped boards and a lifting floor. We advised the client that as the cause of the leak had been repaired, the floor did not need to be condemned and could be simply repaired if the client was willing to work fast. LFR removed the floorboards that were damaged beyond repair, crucially this gave the floor the much needed room to be able to contract and swell without damaging the remaining floor. We then set up dehumidifiers and left them at the clients home for 10 days. This allowed the floor to thoroughly dry, which then enabled us to complete the repairs to the floor.

To enhance the colour of the wood grain we used an alcohol primer to give a lovely depth of colour.
