Domestic – Ranelagh | Wood Floor Restoration
In June 2020, we were approached by an interior designer to restore the original hardwood floors in an extensive property in the Dublin suburb of Ranelagh. The project took several days and consisted of a full inspection, dust-free sanding, coating and sealing with a protective urethane coat.
Having recently purchased a property in Ranelagh, Dublin, and started their renovations, a young family were shocked to find the original hardwood floor beneath an old tattered carpet. However, the floor, as great as the discovery was, needed extensive refurbishment to bring it back to its original best.
After consultation with the young couple and their interior designer, SMC Group drew up a plan to provide a clean, safe, eco-friendly and time-sensitive solution to their problem. We sent one of our wood care and restoration experts to inspect the floors and draw up a plan, which included a specialist dust-free sanding, a deep cleaning, a new sealing coat and a full maintenance and care plan to help to keep it clean for years to come.
Why is our method effective?
We used eco-friendly products that don’t cause any damage to the property and special preservation techniques to not only provide a clean, low-risk restoration but using expert techniques that minimise water usage and dust contamination. As a result, the floor was completely restored with no disturbance to the family or their home and minimal impact on the environment.
We have the best systems in place to ensure that all works are carried out to industry standards, meet and even go above and beyond the client’s needs and requirements. Our team will assess the scope of the job at hand and provide a full cleaning specification assessment including job specifics, cost analysis, task breakdown, waste management report, certification and quality measures, weather report (where required), risk analysis, equipment and material specification, schedule and reporting as well as a post-works maintenance plan and schedule.
“To think we considered getting rid of our old, hardwood floor if it weren’t for SMC group! They were able to bring the floor back to life. I don’t know if what they do is magic, skill or a bit of both, but we couldn’t recommend them enough. Absolutely amazing and the floor is a story we will tell for years. Thanks, Gavin and the team at SMC Group.”
