When to use a commercial lacquer in a domestic property?

Linda and Brian at Lady Nina’s Cottages in Glenrothes Scotland run a high end holiday cottage with an engineered Oak Wood Floor that was need of attention.

The transformation achieved using Pallmann Dust Free Sanding Equipment and methods are illustrated in the before and after photos below 


Work Requirement:

An engineered oak wood floor sanding of a 14-year-old floor in a luxury holiday rental cottage in Glenrothes Scotland. The decision to use Pullman 98 Gold commercial lacquer was influenced by the high volume of traffic experienced in the property and the fact that guests walk out of the hot tub which is situated on the patio while still dripping wet straight on the oak floors.

It was felt that the higher polymer content of the commercial lacquer would give the floors a greater level of protection and longevity, usually reserved for dance floors and commercial floors.


Work Activity:

The floor was in good condition generally – we used the Pallmann Spider to carry out the sanding of the floor and Rotex for the edging work
we sanded the floors including edges, using  24, 40, 60, 80. 100,grit sanding discs with the state of the art  Pallmann Dust Free Sanding system.

Having used the 8o grit pads we water pop the floors to check for any machine makes and remove them. then using the dust from the 80 grit sanding we mix it with Pallmann Allkit filler and filled the floor. After the filler had dried we again sanded the floors with 80 grit pads and continue the process moving up the grades of sandpaper to give you that perfect finish.

 We finally water pop the floor to open the grain, did our final checks before applying the Pallmann primer, we then apply two coat of Pallmann 98 Gold lacquer leaving it  to cure before  de-nibbing  the floor with 120 grit multi hole , before applying the final coat of laquer.



Our Client was able to re let the cottage for the Weekend as planned, being pleasantly surprised by the lack of dust created.

We have been asked to provide a quote for the restoration of their Amtico floors at another property and as a result of them sharing the before and after to their thousands of follows on Facebook they are confident that additional floor sanding work will follow


I received a text message from the client which read “Just wanted to say what an absolutely fantastic job you have done. The difference in the floor is just amazing and we can’t thank you enough. Even working late last night to get it finished for us, we are really grateful. Thank you again Linda and Brian X”

Wood floor restoration to a living room and dining room solid oak floor in a rental property. The property developer had been let down by another contractor who was to carry out the work on agreed days as part of a restoration project which was now going to delay the next phase


Work Activity:

A minor repair had to be carried out to one board which was loose leading from the dining room to the kitchen

The overall condition of both floors was dirty with scratches and dark worn areas

We used the Pallmann Spider rotary machine with various grits of sanding paper discs to sand the floors and the Rotex for all of the edges

Once the sanding had been completed, we applied two coats of Pallmann Magic Oil with added hardener leaving the floors with a good finish and making them hard wearing too



We supplied a Pallmann Clean and Go cleaning system for the tenant to use and recommended a maintenance programme for the rental property



We were sent a message from the developer after they had seen the floors saying “wow, they look incredible! Thank you”

Floor Sanding Activity:

The installation of the floor was perfect. There was no issue with gaps or any of the plank being loose. It was just a matter to remove old finish and all the scratches. For that we used Pallmann Spider. Very gentle piece of equipment yet very effective. The whole process was totally dust free so there was no need to do the clean up after the work has been completed.

Sanding & Oiling Results:

The end results were fantastic!!! Scratch free, grains and beauty of the wood exposed, well protected and it kept a natural look of the oak due to the use of the oil. We were so pleased so being the client. The oil needs only 4h to allow light traffic and 12 hours to be fully cured which was perfect for the client as they could use the kitchen the same day for their busy family of 5.

Testimonial for Floor Sanding Work:

After a few days we follow up on the job to make sure that client is fully satisfied with the result. This natural look gave him concerns that the floor is not protected from spillages and stains. Despite we have given him a 2-year warranty on the finish he was still little concern.

We did this job before Christmas so we scheduled the appointment for the New Year so I can reassure him personally. We visited the client in Feb 2018 and he wasn’t concerned anymore. He lived with the floor for 2 months and he was very assured that the floor can withstand a lot after busy Christmas period. Yet, his concern made me write a blog how to maintain oiled floor.

An Engineered Oak Wood Floor from Dark to Light as possible!

Let there be light!

Rolin Cleaning Services helps a family remodel an Oak Wood Floor in a basement bedroom.

Work Requirement:

An engineered wood floor sanding of an eight-year-old floor in a basement of a house that is used as a bedroom before decorating the room and to make the finish as light as possible because of the limited light in the room which was an absolute priority.

Work Activity:

The floor was in good condition generally – we used the Pallmann Spider to carry out the sanding of the floor and Rotex for the edging work
Once all of the sanding was completed, we asked the client to take a look at the now lighter oak floor of which she was delighted
We had discussed using Pallmann Pure, a two-part product which would leave the wood floor looking the same colour as the finish that we now had after sanding
We applied one coat of Pallmann 325 primer, and after the required drying period, we then applied two coats of Pure to give the desired finish with a semi-gloss finish.


A maintenance program has been set up with the client, a complimentary Pallmann Clean and Go mopping system and neutral cleaner was given to the client to use, and we have been asked to provide a quote for the restoration of the ground floor wood floor.


I received a message from the client to say that both she and her husband were delighted with the professionalism we had shown and the way the floor had been restored to their requirements.
