Parquet Floor Sanding

Coventry Parquet Floor Sanders

Parquet flooring, which is also referred to as mosaic flooring, is a kind of wood flooring made from the combination of wooden tiles in a pattern to create various geometric designs. The wooden tiles are cut in different shapes, from squares to triangles, diamonds, stars, and plenty of others shapes. These shapes are then used for creating patterns such as chevron, hexagon, herringbone, and others. There are a large number of patterns that can be created, but herringbone is one of the most popular choices.

If your floor has scratches, stains, or looks old, your initial reaction might be to replace it, but you should first contact us and we can assess the situation as, most of the times, floor sanding can restore your floor to its great shape and can leave it looking like brand new.

Professional vs. DIY Parquet Floor Sanding

Whether your have solid wood flooring, vinyl flooring, laminate flooring, or engineered wood, sanding it is not an easy task, especially for people that are doing it for the first time. It is not enough with hiring the best tool we find online or in a store. Floor sanding is a job that requires some specific skills and technique, and while it can be done by yourself, it is better to reach out to a team of professional floor sanders that have the right knowledge and tools. 

When starting a floor sanding and restoration project, we need to define what needs to be done. This includes things such as removing old finishes, fixing uneven sections, and filling gaps. All of this is needed in order to be able to refinish your floor and leave it brand new so you are happy and can enjoy your perfect flooring.

We then need to identify the wood grain direction of the floor. By grain direction, we are talking about the longitudinal arrangement of the fibres, which is the direction the tree grows. In traditional hardwood floors, we sand by following the grain of the wood as the wood planks are installed parallel to one another, but when sanding a floor we need to be more careful as the blocks are laid in different directions to create one of the patterns we mentioned before.

Due to the special characteristics described in the prior paragraph, floor sanding includes a higher level of knowledge than hardwood floor sanding, as we need to sand in the right way. The most used and more efficient way of sanding is to sand straight. First, straight along the length of the floor, and then continue sanding straight across the width. This way, any ridges left in the initial pass, will be sanded out and the floor will be left smooth and even. A floor that is not sanded the proper way can almost always be repaired, but this will come at a higher cost and will be harder than initially intended.

Floors can last for more than 15 years when properly taken care of. At Coventry Floor Sanding we are ready to help you restore the beauty of your wood floor.
