STAINING AND LIMING
Dare to be different, whether you are looking for an aged look or something more modern, staining or liming your floor can achieve your goal. Do you have Cypress pine floors, but would rather Jarrah, or Bloodnut or an Oak floor? The word is stain!
We apply the stain/lime directly to the floorboards as this gives you a maximum result. It is not easy. It is time consuming and painstaking, but the result is amazing.
There is a saying that: ‘behind every great man is a great woman”. The same can be said of the floor sander. As with most trade services, the better the machinery, the better the job. There is none better than the Herman Frank 10″ Belt Sander. It seems effortless and provides an even finished surface. The Alto Seyer 7R Floor Edger combines with the Herman Frank to finish the perimeter off beautifully. Then combining these machines with the Polyvac High Speed Burnisher and you have a brilliant result.
Like all good results, they start with planning and preparation.
Here are some suggestions:
- Electrical, plumbing and glazing should be completed before work on the
floor can be started
- Silicone or silicone based products as well as grease that comes in
contact with the floor can cause rejection of the coating. Silicone is
usually found on the footwear of plumbers or glaziers
- complete all painting as it is easier for us to sand all spillages rather than
wipe them off a new floor. In the case of staining or liming floors, leave the
final coat on the skirting board till last
- Install the carpet after the final coat gets on the floor
- All furniture should be removed
- Gas and electrical appliances should be disconnected and removed
- Adequate lighting and power needs to be available
- Seal any access to wind and dust including fireplaces
- Cover light fittings, fold curtains into garbage bags and cover all non – moveable furniture with drop sheets
- Clean and safe access to the work area
In most instances alternative accommodation should be arranged, as the floors cannot be walked on during the work period.
