Cleaning Services Lacquered floors

Cleaning services

As I am sure you are aware your new flooring needs to be cleaned and maintained regularly in order for it to continue looking fantastic for years to come.

At Floorcraft we offer a discounted annual cleaning and maintenance service when you purchase your new floor. We can carry this out at any time of year or bi-annually extra protection.

Why lacquer your wooden floor?

To keep Lacquered wooden floors looking their best it is important to keep the surface protection topped up.  This keeps up the level of protection on the floor stopping it being engrained with dirt and patina. If the lacquer breaks through and bare wood is exposed then the whole floor will have to be sanded back to bare and re-sealed, a very lengthy and costly process.  By re applying lacquer yearly your floor will never need fully sanding and will look fantastic year on year.

The process

The process is quite time consuming to achieve the desired outcome.

You must make sure that all furniture is removed from the room before commencing cleaning.

We scrub clean the floor using a rotary floor-cleaning machine and soap based cleaner.

Then we mop the floor several times and leave it to dry.

After this, we lightly sand the floor using 120grit sand paper on a multi head finishing sander.

Finally, when the floor is sufficiently dry we apply 1 coat of Bona Mega lacquer (in your desired sheen level) to the floor, leave three hours to dry, then the floor can be once again trafficked.

Our Service

We offer this service at a square meter rate of £15.00 inc vat when purchased with your new floor.

Normally this service is priced at £20.00 inc vat per sqm when purchased after.

If you do decide to purchase the cleaning package with your floor, we will also continue to offer you the cleaning service at a rate of £15.00 per sqm there after.

How to do it

When you pay your deposit, simply ask for the cleaning package to be included in your final bill.  This will be added to your quotation and you will pay it along with the final balance on completion of your new floor.
