Wooden Floor Restoration in Schools
Wood flooring plays an important role in many domestic households, but the premises to which it is most integral is undoubtedly in school halls!
This is where Restore Floor Sanders come in! After sanding, we finish every commercial project with 3 good coats of 2-part polyurethane lacquer. We mainly favour Bona Traffic HD, but also use other top brands such as Junckers HP Commercial and Blanchon.
After all the years of sanding school floors, we can honestly say we still get a huge amount of satisfaction in doing a great job in school halls and corridors. We believe a school hall with a stunning and, perhaps most importantly, durable floor has a real positive impact on the staff and the children who attend the school.
The most commonly sanded school floors we refurbish are parquet block floors (a personal favourite of mine) with their charming and timeless patterns. Occasionally we come across a Granwood floor, Grandwood floors date back to the early 1900’s. Consisting of a mixture of wood and concrete, Granwood floors were designed to be unaffected by water damage.
We also complete many projects in Maple strip and more recently Beach strip floors. Both have far superior damage resistant properties in comparison to other species of wood. Which is why they’re commonly found in halls, churches and many other commercial properties.
The commercial restoration process is much like domestic floor sanding, the only difference being the lacquer which we use to finish the floors with.
Once a school hall has been sanded and sealed, it could last up to 10 years before it requires sanding again. However it is recommended that a maintenance regime is in place to help achieve this and prevent the need for early re-sanding.

Maintaining Wooden Floors in Schools
Our maintenance regime consists of what’s known in the trade as a ‘Screen & Seal’. Which is usually carried out between 1-2 years depending on the footfall of the school -secondary schools usually require this yearly. It does however cost far less than sanding and is a good long term investment for protecting the floors, as well as getting the most life out of them.
The process basically involves cleaning the floors, then using a special process to create a key, and finally applying fresh top coats of 2-part lacquer. A well maintained floor will help to prevent damage, and if maintained regularly will not need sanding for many, many years.
