Sports Floor Restoration

All wooden & granwood sports flooring can be sanded and re-sealed bringing them back to their former glory. Even floors 50 years old can be sanded and restored with amazing results, but it is very important that the correct process and products be used for sports floor restoration. If done wrong the results can be disastrous. Many people claim to be able to sand floors at a very low price using cheap hire machinery and cheap varnishes from hardware stores, sanding the floor incorrectly and making a mess of a perfectly good floor.

All the discoloured seal and a small layer of wood is first sanded off which also takes out any scratches and marks. Then the floor is sanded again working through different grades of abrasive until an extremely smooth finish is achieved. The floor is then primed before the required layers of seal are applied (It's recommended 2 layers for general use). Any court markings can be applied at this stage locking the court paint between coats of seal which will give them a longer life and make them stand out more than surface sports court markings.

Court Markings

Seals from either Bona or Junkers give the best possible grip for all sports. Sports court marking paints are also specific for their use, giving the optimum colours for their particular sport. Only the highest quality machinery should be used to ensure a perfect finish. These high quality machines machines are 98% dust free, but if if required by the customer, dust extraction units giving a 99.8% dust free service can be used.

Any repairs to sports floors can also be carried out before the floor sanding process so that they blend into the floor and become unnoticeable. Any gaps can also be filled with epoxy resin mixed with the dust from the floor so that they match exactly with the floor before being sealed.

All wooden floors such as Junkers, Boen, wood strip, Parquet blocks, engineered boards and Granwood sports floors can be refurbished. All the above procedure can also be applied to sports halls, school halls, gym floors, church halls, community centres, museum floors, dance studios or any area that is used for games, parties and functions.

Squash Court Maintenance

If the floor is not badly damaged then it might only need a re-seal. It is far cheaper to re-seal a sports floor/gym floor as there is no floor sanding required. The floor will require a deep clean with some cleaning chemicals and scrub-dryer machine to clean off any dirt and oils. You would then abraid the surface and clean the floor again. After the floor is dry and free from any dust it would be necessary to reseal the sports floor/squash court with a high grip sports seal. Re-sealing regularly will also protect any court markings/line markings you have. Having a good floor maintenance program for your sports floor it can save you money in the long run. If the floor maintenance program is followed correctly the floor should never really need sanding again.
