Brisbane parquetry sanding and polishing

Have your parquetry floors seen better days? Just like other floorings, parquetry floors can become dull and marked after regular use. However, behind the surface wear and tear is your original beautiful timber waiting to be rejuvenated and brought back to life. Here at D.R. Main Floors, we specialise in Brisbane floor sanding and polishing and restoring parquetry floors to their original beauty. So if you are looking to freshen up your floors, you are in the right place.

What is parquetry flooring?

Parquetry flooring is made up of individual geometric pieces of wood put together to create a decorative pattern. A few common styles of parquetry flooring are the herringbone or mosaic patterns. Parquet flooring creates a distinctive and refined look, adding a touch of style to any home.

How often can you sand parquetry flooring?

Usually, high-quality parquet flooring can be sanded and polished many times. This will be dependent on the thickness of your type of parquetry flooring. As a general rule to keep your parquetry floor in good condition, it’s recommended to have maintenance coats applied once the coats start to dull down. There is no particular set time frame for this as the wear and tear on floors in every home is different. Maintenance coats will prolong the life of the floors and only takes one day to do with no sawdust from timber (as we are not re-sanding the timber).

How to tell if your parquetry flooring needs sanding and polishing?

Like with standard wooden floors, parquetry floors will show signs indicating that your solid timber parquet floor needs sanding.

These signs may include:

The surface of your floors is scratched or scuffed

The flooring looks dull and worn-down

Your floors have been UV-affected

Discolouration has occurred due to years of use

You are considering putting your house on the market and want to improve the overall appearance of the floors.

Always opt for a professional

Parquetry flooring is one of the most difficult to restore due to the different directions of the timber. This makes sanding parquetry floors a more involved job than sanding traditional tongue and groove style floors. So a lot of work and high level skill needs to go into the floors to bring out their outstanding visual quality, not only from the sanding but also the application of the polish.

Parquetry floor sanding is more involved than normal timber floor boards when it comes to re-sanding and polishing. If you want your floors to be restored properly, it’s essential to book with an experienced company. Here at D.R. Main Floors, we have had over 30 years of experience providing excellent service and giving our customers the finished look that they absolutely love.
