Floor varnishing service in London
The style of London is a long story and a properly varnished floor can give the style of any epoch. This, of course, depends on the type of wood used for flooring and whether there is a need for additional repairs.
Once you have chosen your color shade and if your floor has already been stained, we may offer you samples on a part of the floor so that you select the specific and precise color. For staining, it is important to know that the different types of wood react differently to the same color of stain and this may lead to a different result. Keep this in mind when you choose the color.
The actual finishing of the floor may be done by varnishing, oiling, and waxing, depending on the desired effect.
Varnishing after sanding
Once the sanding is complete, the floor surface may be varnished. This may be done once we have done sanding, or if you used another company, which cannot offer this service.
Varnishing is carried out by laying several coats to achieve the following effects: glance, super mat, mat, semi-gloss, gloss, super gloss.
There are varnishes suitable for moderately busy premises and heavy traffic areas, which will be considered during the inspection. It is strongly recommended to varnish the floor after sanding or refurbishing in order to seal and keep its quality for a long period.
If you buy a parquet that has not been varnished, we may offer you complete varnishing once the parquet has been laid (which we can also do). Thus, your floor will be protected and you may also give it another color.
Varnishing of Wooden Floors
In case you need to finish the floor with varnish that is harmless and completely water-based, we may offer you such a solution. Such finishing is used in children’s rooms, bedrooms, etc.
This matters at the time of varnishing to avoid harmful fumes and also after the surface has completely dried.
The brands we use include Bona, Junckers, Ozmo, etc.

Before varnishing, it is necessary to lay a base, which is usually a primer.
