Stripping back the layers of varnish

Squirrel Property Services were asked by one of their clients to take a look at their wooden floor throughout their property.

The floor was from B&Q originally and was around 10 years old.  The customer had regularly been re-coating the wooden floor in Ronseal Diamond Varnish so Steven of Squirrel Property Services had never seen so many layers of varnish. Steven used the new Cubitron II belts which provided fantastic results and the customer was extremely happy with the result.

Squirrel Property Services take on tabletops

Here at Ultimate Floor Sanding we are all about the repair and refurbishment of wooden floors, but this week one of our Affiliate members, Squirrel Property Services, took on the job of refurbishing wooden kitchen worktops.

The job: 

Following lots of wear and tear the customer was ready to rip out their wooden kitchen worktops and have them replaced at great cost. Whilst searching for a local kitchen company to replace the worktops the customer came across Squirrel Property Services on Facebook and made an enquiry out of hope that the worktops could be salvaged.

Steven and the team at Squirrel Property Services sanded the wooden kitchen worktops then water popped and left them to dry overnight. The worktops then received two coats of Pallmann Magic Oil to seal and protect the newly sanded worktops.

Not only did the customer save on the expense of ripping out and replacing the worktops but they were also amazed with how little mess was created.

The pitfalls of sanding yourself

When Steven of Squirrel Property Services was asked to look at and quote for a wooden floor refurbishment, he wasn’t quite sure what he’d find.

The Job

The customer, who has lived in their property for 18 months, wanted to refresh and refurbish their wooden floor. Upon visiting the property we found that the previous owner had attempted to sand the floor himself by renting a HT8 Drum Sander. This DIY job had left at least 3 dozen drum marks and he had also used a dark stain to attempt to cover disguise the mess. The edges had also been badly damaged by the rental edging machine.

I got to work sanding and then refinishing the floor with Pallmann Magic Oil, and the customer was very happy with the result.

“Thanks a lot Steven, the living room looks amazing.”

Before contacting me the customer had considered a new floor, but someone at his work recommended me and we managed to save and bring his floor back to life.
