Previously Carpeted Pine given New Life - Malvern East

Baltic Pine is a beautiful and durable timber flooring choice that has been used in homes for centuries. Recently, we had the opportunity to restore a very old Baltic Pine flooring that had been trapped under carpet for about 10 years. The flooring was in rough shape, but we were up for the challenge.

First, we removed the carpet and assessed the condition of the flooring. Despite being hidden away for so many years, the timber was in relatively good shape. There were a few scratches and marks, but nothing that couldn't be fixed. We started by sanding down the flooring to remove any imperfections and prepare it for a new finish.

Next, we applied an oil-based wax coating to the flooring. The coating added an extra layer of protection to the timber and helped bring out its natural beauty. One thing to note about using an oil-based wax coating is that it can make the timber look more yellow than a water-based coating. However, this yellowing effect can be desirable for some clients, as it gives the flooring a warm and inviting feel.

The end result was stunning - the Baltic Pine flooring looked like it had been installed yesterday. The oil-based wax coating gave it a beautiful sheen and enhanced the natural grain and texture of the timber. Our client was thrilled with the transformation and couldn't believe that the flooring had been hidden away for so many years.
