Commercial Floor Sanding plays an important role in many domestic households, but the premises to which it is most integral is undoubtedly in the Commercial sector.
Floor sanding and restoration in commercial properties is much the same as domestic floor sanding, with the only difference being the finishes which are applied to the floors.
Once a floor has been sanded and sealed, it will last many years before it requires sanding again, providing a yearly maintenance regime is in place.
Commercial Floor Finishing
After sanding we finish every commercial project with 1 coat of primer and 2 good coats of a 2-part polyurethane lacquer. We mainly favor Bona Traffic Hd & Loba Supra A.T. We also use other top brands such as Junckers HP Commercial.
After all our years sanding commercial floors, we can honestly say there is still a huge amount of satisfaction in doing so. We believe a commercial building with a stunning and perhaps most importantly, durable floor has a real positive impact on the all those who use it.
Occasionally we get the opportunity to sand a Granwood floor. Grandwood floors date back to the early 1900’s. They’re made from a mix of concrete, resin and wood, giving them waterproof characteristics.
So it’s no surprise that Granwood floors are some of the toughest around, and are usually one of the only materials that survives in the event of a flood.
Maple & Beach
We also complete restoration on many Maple floors and more recently Beach. Both have 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.

Our Commercial Floor 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 premises.
For example, Secondary schools which 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 using a 120 grit mesh screen to create a key. Finally we apply a fresh top coat of 2-part lacquer or Oil depending on previous finish.
A well maintained floor will help to prevent damage, and if maintained regularly will not need sanding for many years.
