If you have the privelige of restoring an old property with wooden floors to its former glory and are looking to remove the hearths you have come to the right place.
Citrus can remove the concrete hearth and replace the floor boards to match.
If recycles aged floor boards are not available the correct sized replacement boards can be machined to size. In order to blend in the patching we recommend staining the floors before lacquering or oiling.
In this wonderful country house in Perthshire Citrus were commissioned to sand and lacquer the old boot room as pictured below.
Because the house keeper found the process to be so Dust Free, surrounded by antiques, we were also asked to mask off and restore the floors at three of the entrances to the property
This client didn't know whether they wanted their floors cleaned or restored, all they knew is that they had a limestone floor that had lost its look and was looking dirty.
They chose to have it cleaned and protected with a colour enhancing impregnator.
They were over joyed with the results after returning from their holiday.
Amtico floors can loose there lustre over time looking drab and grubby. Citrus specialises in restoring Amtico and Karndean floors, by stripping back any old polish and redressing the floors
The Spinnie Community Centre just outside elgin had a tired degraded badminton court that needed moving about two meters back. The wooden floor looked old and fairly beaten up with some gouges and deep scratches across them.
The Committee commissioned Citrus Floorcare to carry out the work having been recommended by a local architects practice in Inverness.
The Job took 4 days using The Pallmann Spider Dust Free Sanding equipment. The experienced team did the first cut using 24 grit pads and went up the grades 40,60,80 grit
At this point the dust from the 80 grit sanding was used to fill the floor and the floors were then sanded at 80 and 100 grit.
The first coat of three, Pallmann 98 Gold Laquer was used and left to dry over night
The Badminton was then set out and painted in before the two final coats of two part commercial lacquer were applied.
The Committee were over joyed with the results and are more than happy to show any visitors thier wonderful new floors and badminton court.
