Products & Services
Wood floors are resilient and able to resist neglect and harsh treatment – but can begin to sulk after a few years of heavy traffic or lack of the right maintenance. Any previous makeover wears off and after 2-5 years your wood floor will look on the dull side and be ripe for refreshment – ie renovation.
Renovation involves resealing existing floors which have already been restored, without the need for the full restoration process that involves resanding. Floor Sanding Experts will assess your floor and recommend the ideal solution. This normally involves resealing with whatever has been used previously: lacquer, hardwax or oil.
The Floor Sanding Experts offer the full professional service covering every stage of wood floor restoration. Restoration is the complete overhaul for floors that are damaged (as opposed to a surface renovation) . Damage occurs through wearing, improperly fitted boards or simply boards that have excessively aged with time.
We repair damaged areas by lifting the damaged floors, securing loose boards, and refitting or replacing old boards or parquet blocks – and then regluing.
Before renovation, some floors may need major or minor repairs. We provide a full assessment of the work that is needed to ensure a perfect working surface for the later stages of sanding, staining and sealing.
Removal / Replacement of Damaged Boards
We examine all the boards, fixing any that are loose. Old tacks and nails are removed, while protruding nails are hammered flat.
All damaged boards beyond minor repair will be replaced using reclaimed timber of the same quality and age wherever possible.
Floor Sanding Experts are your choice for wood floor repairs – a friendly firm you can trust to do the best job.
Stains are used to alter the colour of wood. (eg darkening a pine floor) . Unlike paint, stains enhance the wood grain rather than hide it.
Staining and varnishing in two distinct stages is preferable to using a coloured varnish. You will maintain far greater control over the colour and enhance durability of the sealant. The gradual wearing away of the varnish or sealant will not affect the floor colour beneath.
The Floor Sanding Experts don’t use the outdated drum sanders that are still favoured by some competitor companies. We operate continuous belt machinery that is virtually dust-free. A mobile extraction unit follows our machines round and limits dust to virtually nothing.
You reap the benefits of a safer environment for your family. After normal sanding, microscopic dust particles can remain in the room for days.
Some dust is inevitable, but we minimize this by masking/screening and frequent vacuuming.
We also use edging sanders and fine Bosch tools to get right into the corners for complete and even sanding.

The crew completing the re-sanding, colouring & sealing of the floors at 1 New Bond St did fantastic work to a high standard, completed areas as per the schedule set out, & would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone asking. I will also look to them for any future work that is required at the Ralph Lauren stores that I am responsible to maintain.
I would highly recommend the Floor Sanding Experts, they're professional, quick, and the job was done to a very high standard. We dealt with Tom on the phone, who was friendly, efficient and very ready to help. I even phoned one evening at 8pm and my call was answered! Nick, who did the work, is great and you can see the pride he takes in his work. He advised us along the way, ensuring that we were happy with the finish choices. He even left some samples of stain and lacquer for some edging that we need to fit between the wooden floor and the stone floor in the kitchen. Our floor is stunning, we are thrilled with it and have booked them back in to do upstairs too. They work above and beyond, providing an excellent service.
I would recommend Floor Sanding Experts to a friend. They were professional, courteous and efficient throughout the process. They arranged for an on-site quote very quickly, a date for the work was arranged promptly and I had two telephone calls to confirm arrangements. The operative Ivan was a perfectionist. He made a floor that had been damaged and worn over 20 years use - 10 of those with dogs inflicting real wear on the floor - look like new. There was a small problem not of his causing and after one email to the office Ivan returned on a Sunday to fix it. He was very polite and professional on both visits and a credit to the business.
We had our lounge dining room and hallway done. Nick and work mate were amazing! Polite and moved all the furniture with great care. Very tidy as they worked. The overall finish of our floor exceeded our expectations. Would recommend these guys. The work has left our home looking like we have new flooring layed Karen &Ian Webb Woodford Green
Excellent service. Quick to quote and re-quote. Christopher [our guy] arrived each day on time and really put the hours in to make sure the job was done on time - staying later to makes sure he got oil applied on one floor and a 2nd coat of lacquer on another. Very tidy workers who were very careful not to damage skirting and radiator valves. Would thoroughly recommend.
Thank you so much for sorting out our floor. In its previous state it was full of holes, worn down and very old looking. We are thrilled with the change! It was sanded down, filled and stained to the colour we hoped it would be. Great personal service. Thank you
From start to finish, we've been overjoyed with our experience with Floor Sanding Experts. I'm a firm believer that you "get what you pay for" and although we received less expensive quotes, we went with FSE because we knew we'd be in the best hands. I feel confident that we got great value for money with FSE. I couldn't be happier with the job Nick did. His professionalism, attitude, and workmanship were all top notch. He set very clear and reasonable expectations and far exceeded them! He even sent me pictures along the way, which was a wonderful touch. It is very apparent that he cared for my floors as if they were his own. What more could you ask for? He also had an incredible attention to detail. I'm certain that he could've cut a lot of corners along the way, but he didn't! He went above and beyond and that's why I'm confident that we will be customers for life. Thanks so much!
Floors sanded and varnished to a high standard, staff who did the job were polite and kept me informed of their progress. I am very happy with the finished work
We were incredibly impressed with the service at Floor Sanding Experts. They were very professional and worked quickly, giving us advice on how to look after the floor following treatment. We were really pleased with the result and would definitely get them back to help us again.
Many thanks for a great service. From quote to completion of the job they were punctual polite and efficient. The contractors were very hard working and the result is fantastic.
Excellent service from quotation to completion. Pricing was clear, service was efficient and the finished job is excellent. I would particularly highlight their advice on finish- which resulted in a cheaper job, but better finish.

Well, the team have excelled themselves today and done the most amazing job. George and his colleague Vladimir have worked tremendously hard all day to ensure the job was completed and to a high standard. Our floor looks beautiful and we are so pleased with the final result. George has been a credit to your company and we want to say a huge thank you to him and Vladimir. I would just like to say thank you for giving me back a lovely floor. Your workmen did a very good job. I placed covers over certain items to keep them dust free, but was very surprised by how little dust there was.
Wooden stairways are too often neglected - or taken for granted as a carpet-covered connection from one floor to the next. This can be a vast waste of their potential. Over and above the purely functional, a stairway is a sleeping beauty that can be revived to take its rightful place as the centrepiece of your property. With their awkward shapes and fiddly corners, stairways are often perceived as beyond feasible restoration: tricky and too much trouble. But look at the results! A fresh, clean and perfectly vanished stairway can enhance your living or working space - and add considerable value to your property.
You may also choose to paint your floor or to apply a coloured wax (such as Blanchon lime wax) for a soft tinting effect through which you can see the wood grain. We recommend coloured wax for floors with dull, washed colours or to better match your home interior. You quickly lend some colour to your room and get a floor that looks completely different at an affordable price. As well as the traditional solvent and oil-based wood stains, we also use odour-free, water-based pigments stains. These offer a wide range of colours from traditional wood colours to contemporary pigmenting: eg white, red, blue or even pink!.
More durable than oil sealants, and easier to maintain, these products are typically used for mid to heavy traffic areas. Modern lacquers (Bona and Junckers) no longer produce the 'plastic' look of old and offer a silky sheen in a matt, satin or high gloss finish. Our recommended finish would be a polyurethane lacquer - highly resistant to wear but which may create some discoloration to the floor beneath. As it is not a natural material, it can restrict the breathing ability of your wooden floor.
Polishing freshens up those parquet or hardwood floors that are a bit worn but do not require full sanding and sealing. They have to be cleaned/ buffed and sealed/polished with whatever finish was originally used on them. We can provide a free assessment of your floor and recommend the best treatment for what you want to achieve.
