Paschal Carbin of Floormaster and his team oversee and work on all restoration jobs that are carried out.
The job takes approximately 1 to 1.5 days for an average size room.
You’ll be able to relax (no shoes though) on your newly sanded floor after a couple of hours. The “no shoes” period lasts until the day after the job is finished. Furniture can be moved at this time although it needs to be lifted and placed into position, and shoes can be worn. The floor is 80 per cent cured after 3 to 4 days, and 100 per cent after 2 weeks.
For insurance reasons Floormaster does not move the furniture. If we are requested to move furniture however we can arrange for it to be done.
No. Floormaster only uses a low-odour finish.
We recommend that if you live in a semi-detached or terraced home to consult your neighbours.
This question is too difficult to answer without seeing your floor. Please consult Floormaster as we are happy to give free floor inspections.
A well-maintained floor is healthier and contains less dust and odour, apart from the obvious aesthetic beauty that a well-groomed floor has.
Unfortunately Floormaster’s work can be very noisy so we recommend people to vacate their premises whilst work commences. If you have a house with multiple floors and quiet areas then you may be lucky enough not to hear the loud noises. The noisy period of work, depending on the size of the room, usually lasts 3 to 5 hours.
Generally water-based colors come up new and retain the original wood finish.
Floormaster only uses leading industry floor finishes such as Bonakemmi, Gran Wax, Zinsear, and Treatex.
Recoating is when you floor does not need a complete overhaul. It will save you the expense of complete re-sanding. Refinishing is when your floor really needs a lot of work. Signs of this are when there is no varnish floor finish left, and the floor contains various dirt stains.
