Lawn Care not just Floor Care

Mike of Cornwall Floor Care helps out local gardener to save his clients wooden floor.

A couple of weeks ago a local gardener called Mike and asked him to go and see one of his clients in Rock Cornwall. The gardener had been carrying out lawn maintenance and the lawn fertiliser he had sprayed on the lawn had been walked inside and all over the clients wooden floor. The fertiliser had left a crusty residue in the shape of footprints – not a great look.

Whilst Mike and his team where cleaning the floor they mentioned to the client that the engineered oak floor finish was worn out and the floor was starting to show heavy wear and damage. Sanding and refinishing were discussed as an option, but the client informed Mike that the floor had been sanded before and that the original sanding company had said it couldn’t be sanded again. Following a brief inspection it was clear to see that there was at least 4mm left and it was a job for the Pallmann Spider and Magic Oil.

Mike sanded and finished the floor and left the client with cleaners, a flat mop system and bottles of cleaner/ maintainer. Following the successful completion of the floor sanding the client then asked Mike to strip, hone, deep clean and seal her limestone floors – both floors have turned out amazing and the client was over the moon.

What lies beneath….

A builder asked Mike of Cornwall Floorcare whether anything could be done to save the floor they had found hiding underneath old carpet. Take a look at the answer and the work completed by Mike.

I took one look at the floor and told the builder that I could make the floor look amazing in 2 days without creating any dust or mess. So obviously he said get cracking!

I sanded and oiled the floor using Pallmann products, and as you can see from the results the change shows it really is worth checking out what lies beneath.

We are also returning to the property to make all the customers oak thresholds white, as they have brushed oiled floors throughout the downstairs of the property.

So the moral of the story is, simply don’t discard an old, tired looking wooden floor. Seek an experts advice and you could have a beautifully restored wooden floor for years to come.
