School Floor Sanding
School floor sanding and restoration -While wood flooring plays an important role in many domestic households, but the premises to which it is most integral is undoubtedly in school halls!
After sanding, we finish every commercial project with 3 good coats of a 2-part polyurethane lacquer. We mainly favour Bona Traffic HD, but also use other top brands such as Junckers HP Commercial and Loba 2k Supra.
After all our years sanding school floors, we honestly can say there’s still a huge amount of satisfaction in doing so. 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 and block floors (a personal favourite of mine). Occasionally we come across a Granwood floor, these floors date back to the early 1900’s. Consisting of a resin, wood and concrete mix, meaning Granwood floors are one of the toughest around.
We also complete many projects in Maple strip and more recently Beach 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 bowling alleys and many other commercial properties.
The school floor sanding and restoration process is much like domestic floor sanding. The only difference being the lacquers in which is used to finish the floors.
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.

School Floor Maintenance
Our maintenance plan consists of what we call a ‘Screen & Seal’. Screen and seals are usually carried between every 1-2 years, depending on the footfall of the school. Secondary schools will usually require this yearly. However, at a fraction of the cost of a re-sand it’s an excellent long term investment for protecting the flooring.
The process involves cleaning the floors, followed by using a special process to create a key. Finally we apply a fresh top coat of 2-part lacquer. A well maintained floor will help to prevent damage, and when maintained regularly will not need sanding for many, many years.
