Restoring a beautiful hardwood floor to its former glory is a major concern for many. There are public buildings, gyms, restaurants and homes with wood floors hidden under a carpet or vinyl that need to be restored.
Some people think they need to replace their wooded floors because they no longer glow, even after a good clean. Sometimes this is because there is significant damage to some sections of the floor. In most cases, though, there is no need to undertake such an expensive replacement project.
The sanding process for wood floor restoration at GJP Floor Sanding can work wonders. It has worked for hundreds of our customers in the past, and it can work for you too.

There are six simple steps we will take in the sanding wood floor restoration process to get your floor back to pristine condition:
We will first need to assess your floor to determine the nature of the problem. We try to ascertain if you are dealing with wear and tear that comes with age, or if there are serious rot issue. We determine if repair is needed, or if we can just clean the floor with approved wood floor cleaner to refresh the wood. We will be open and honest, suggesting the most viable, economical solution.
Clean the Floor
Our team will then proceed to clean the floor thoroughly to ensure it’s dirt free. Tiny granules of sand and other dirt can cause scratches and interfere with the buffing process. We take great care to ensure that the cleaning process is gentle yet powerful.
A buffer is used to scrub layers off the original finish on the floor to get it ready for the restoration process. In this step, the buffer is used to do a scuff-sand of your wooden floor. This has to be done gently to get it right.
The floor has to be properly cleaned before the finish is applied. After buffing or screening the floor, there is going to inevitably be dust and debris and the floor will most likely have a dull look. We use our dust containment system to suck up all dirt and ensure the floor is spotless.
Sealing the Floor
If your wooden floor is not absorbing the paint or stain evenly, then we will have to apply a sealant. While it is not always required, it offers the extra advantage of helping to protect your floor, while also creating an even look.
Finally, we will get the floor back to its original look by applying the stain, paint or oil that was originally used. Of course you can choose to stain with a different product if you prefer. Our GJP floor Sanding Kent team usually applies thin coats of stains several times because the result is better than applying a thick coat of stain once. We do what is best for your floors.
The overall processes and approach may differ depending on the condition of your wood floor. However, this is a general sketch of our usual approach. It is thorough, professional and proven over thousands of sanding restoration projects.
