School Floor Sanding

The Quicksand Flooring team was approached by an outside contractor who maintains large schools in the south-east. We were asked to take on over 2500m2 of school floor sanding and restoration work on sports halls (including the application of line court markings), classrooms and corridors in four schools in the Merton/Wimbledon areas.

Schools & Sports Halls Floor Sanding Work

The time frame we had for all four schools was 3 weeks – so we had to work on all of them consecutively to meet our deadline and we did so with very pleasing results. The client now uses Quicksand Flooring for all their floor sanding needs we have established a good working relationship.

Embassy Floor Sanding

The photos you see here are of a floor sanding and fitting job we carried out in late 2011/early 2012. The property is the Algerian Embassy in Holland Park, London. We were asked to supply 800m2 of parquet oak exquisite panels for a Herringbone Pattern on two levels and also a Basket Weave pattern on the ground floor. This was then sanded and filled with an oil application to finish. The client was extremely happy with our embassy floor sanding work and asked us back to work on their Kensington Palace Gardens property.

Colours

Wooden Floor Colours

When we fit or stain your floor we can choose products that will give you any colour you want. Our fitted boards therefore come in a wide range of wooden floor colours. Even if you have an existing floor in place, the choice of sand grade and stain, paint or oil can significantly alter the colour and luminosity of the finished floor. As floor fitting and staining experts with years of experience and expertise, Quicksand Flooring advise on commercial and domestic flooring work across the London and Essex areas. We can help you transform your business or home with simply beautiful hardwood floors in the best colours!

At Quicksand Flooring, we offer a wide range of wooden floor colours from bleached white to deepest darkest black and everything in between. A high quality UV cured oil is used to colour and protect the boards. This means the colour will be reliable, stable and the floor low maintenance as a result. We can advise you on the right combination of boards, stains and finishes and provide example wood swatches to ensure you always make the best choice for new or existing floors.

Gallery Floor Restoration

, , ,

Gallery Floor Restoration

This gallery floor was restored in Chelsea, London in July 2015. The underlying floorboards were of good quality; however, years of wear had ingrained dirt and make the floor look dull. Our Quicksand Flooring process involved three levels of gallery floor sanding to remove worn and stained wood. We then added a natural oil to protect the wood from wear without hiding it’s natural beauty.

Dull dirty floor pre-sand

When we arrived the gallery floor was dull & dirty after years of wear and thousands of dirty shoes.

Mid-Sand

With the gallery floor cleared and the pictures fully protected from dust, we started the sanding stage.

The Finished Floor

This is the The finished floor. We have applied an oil finish to do two things. First of all it protects the floor from staining and wear. Secondly it brings out the natural colour and grain of the wood. The finished floor is beautiful.

Situated in the centre of London, this prestigious client asked us to restore their existing parquet panels with a clear Osmo oil finish to keep them as natural as possible whilst still durable. We applied 3 coats of Osmo hardwax oil over a 3-day period, which has given the floor a wonderfully deep luminosity without being too dark.</p><p>

Warehouse Floor Sanding

Bam Construction; Kings Cross Central, Eastern Goods Yard & University of Arts

This large warehouse floor sanding project was taken on by Quicksand Flooring in March 2011 and was an unusual project for everyone involved. We laid end grain wood blocks individually one by one, making this an intriguing job that also had brilliant results. We also left a small gap between each block to allow for expansion. In total, we laid a million and a half blocks over an area of nearly three thousand square meters. Then it was Quicksand Flooring’s job to sand all of the areas and apply a two-part oil. This gives the floor an added durability.

Needless to say, we carried out the entire job with the utmost professionalism and the client was happy with the way we worked and also how we worked with them. We also carry out all maintenance on the floors, re-applying a freshen up product every 6-9 months depending on the wear of surface.

Gym Floor Sanding

Virgin Active Gym

Virgin Active asked Quicksand Flooring to do gym floor sanding and wood floor restoration work in their aerobics hall and gym areas. The problem they had was they were unable to close the gym in the daytime so asked us if we could work around this. Quicksand had no trouble working out a schedule to carry out the work out of hours with as minimal disruption as possible. We made sure all areas were left as we found them ready for customers to use the following morning.

Our gym floor sanding and restoration work for Virgin Active greatly improved the quality of their hardwood floors. This has helped the gym maintain fantastic quality in all areas for their customers. Quicksand Flooring works with a variety of commercial clients in London and Essex. We also offer maintenance contracts for customers who receive a lot of daily traffic. We have found that some commercial floors may require regular maintenance to maintain excellent quality when they receive regular traffic.
