PUTTING SUSTAINABILITY AT THE HEART OF EVERY PROJECT
We are the market leaders in appreciating the importance of sustainable sourcing and won’t do business with any supplier who can’t prove the origin of their timber. The vast majority of our new wood floors are FSC™ or PEFC certified – we’ve been FSC™ compliant since 1997, long before it was a mainstream issue.
Most companies charge extra for this certification, whereas we include this as a given at no extra cost because we believe it is the right thing to do.
Consider these points when choosing wood flooring to make the most sustainable choice possible:
Only use certified floors – Limit carbon intensive materials by using FSC™ and PEFC certified floors (not just accredited companies) that are harvested as part of responsible and sustainable forest management.
Specify long life wood – Choose carbon capturing materials by specifying long life wood products that lock away carbon and can be regenerated. This is about moving away from single-use floors to those that can be refurbished over decades and being prepared to choose floors with the least environmental impact.
Consider the lifetime cost – Long lasting wood floors can be easily reused and reclaimed so take into account the lifetime cost of the floor if possible. For example, consider wood floors with thicker wear layers where possible (at least 3 or 4mm), so that floors can be re-sanded.
Wood Flooring Restoration & Annual Maintenance
Can you imagine cleaning a huge country mansion, the likes of which National Trust teams tackle each and every year? Inside our houses are a hive of activity during the winter months, as conservation teams dust, vacuum and polish their hearts out.
In addition to being able to give the house an in-depth clean, winter gives us an opportunity to closely examine every item for signs of wear and pest activity, and to update our records. Of course we’re constantly monitoring the collection and we keep the house clean throughout the year, but during the winter we do this on a much greater scale. And now we’ll be doing this more than ever before in front of visitors.
To polish or not to polish Wood Floors?
We assess each item individually as to whether to polish it or not.
Cleaning Wood Floors on a grand scale
Can you imagine cleaning a huge country mansion, the likes of which National Trust teams tackle each and every year?
Nevermind the sheer size of the places involved and the number of rooms, there are delicate and historically important objects everywhere – from carpets, tapestries and ceramics to marble busts, carved wooden staircases – oh and a suit of armour or two! It requires an in-depth understanding of antiques as well as antique wood floors.Traditional Wax Polish, vinegar and paraffin on a woollen cloth, as it buffs floors amazingly and when you have lots of wooden floors to keep in tip top condition it is invaluable.
Floor waxes and old floors
Polish will help to protect a surface from grit, grime, water and stains. But a heavy build- up of polish will inhibit the floor’s ability to ‘breath’ which can hasten decay. It will also increase the risk of slipping. Highly polished surfaces, and those which seal the surface, were rare before the 19th century. The term floor wax covers a wide range of both natural and synthetic materials. The three main types in used today can be classified as:
Traditional solvent-based floor wax
Proprietary solvent-based floor wax
Water-based emulsion floor wax
Most are available in liquid or paste form.
Beeswax Polish, traditional polish can be used on all types of wood and is particularly suitable for open-grained wood such as oak and pine (also used for furniture and panelling). It feeds timber and will prevent excessive dryness. Thin coats can also be applied
to timber floors and some other natural types of flooring, such as stone flags. In all situations where a new finish is to be applied a test should be carried out first on the material to which it is to be applied.
APPLICATION OF BEESWAX AND TURPENTINE POLISH
Polish should be applied rarely and sparingly but frequent dry buffing will help to protect the floor and keep the surface free from
dirt. Once an acceptable coat has been established a further overall coat may only be necessary about once a year. New applications should be restricted to areas subject to use and wear to avoid a build up of wax elsewhere on the floor. Excessive wax can trap dirt, darken floors and form a slippery surface.
Application is with a soft cloth, brush or electric polisher. Warming the polish eases the operation and helps to force the wax into crevices. Adequate ventilation will help to dry the polish.
A liquid polish can be used for cleaning a waxed floor prior to adding extra polish to an existing polished surface. On the rare occasions when it is necessary to remove existing polish, white spirit can be used.
PROPRIETARY SOLVENT-BASED FLOOR WAXES
These are made from synthetic materials, using waxes such as paraffin dissolved in solvents such as white spirit. Most of these waxes are derived from petroleum and contain additives such as silicone, designed to increase water repellency qualities and to form a hard glossy finish. As a result the breathability qualities of an old floor are impaired and the non-slip advantages of using a traditional polish may be reduced.
