At Silver Lining Floor Care, we understand the importance of maintaining a pristine school environment. That’s why we specialize in providing top-notch school floor sanding services that breathe new life into worn-out floors. Our team recently received an enquiry from the ultimate floor sanding company, representing the London area, seeking assistance with a school floor in dire need of restoration. The task at hand? Transforming the floor into a magnificent badminton court while addressing existing damages. Let’s dive into the remarkable journey we embarked upon to achieve this remarkable transformation.
Preparing for Excellence: Assessing the Worn-Out Floor
Before embarking on this grand venture, we carefully assessed the school floor’s condition. Although some damages were evident, we had the perfect solution – a stash of replacement planks ready to come to the rescue.
Elevating Elegance: A Herringbone Teak Wood Pattern
The school floor itself was an exquisite herringbone pattern crafted from teak wood. Our aim was to not only restore its former glory but also elevate its elegance to match the grandeur of a badminton court.
Choosing the Perfect Finish: Unleashing the Power of Pallmann
To achieve a truly remarkable result, we presented the school with two exceptional finish options from Pallmann, renowned for their commercial-grade excellence. The first option, Pall-X 98, offered a standard finish. However, for the pinnacle of durability and eco-friendliness, we proposed the second option – Pall-X Zero, a VOC-free masterpiece.
Embracing the Eco-Champion: Client Goes Green with Pall-X Zero!
In a delightful twist of fate, our client opted for the pricier option that didn’t dent their pocket but did wonders for the world—Pall-X Zero! We couldn’t help but do a little happy dance because, let’s face it, we’re all about that eco-life!
With Pall-X Zero, we witnessed the glorious union of cost-effectiveness and environmental responsibility. Who said you can’t have your cake and save the planet too? Our team was thrilled to work with this remarkable product that loves the environment just as much as we do. It’s like finding a soulmate in the flooring world—a match made in eco-heaven!
Skills, tools and now with this amazing product on the top
So, as we embarked on this flooring adventure, we were armed not only with our trusty sanders and fillers but also with the eco-warrior Pall-X Zero. Together, we set out to restore the school floor, one sustainable step at a time. Who knew floor sanding could be so eco-trendy?
Join the ranks of the eco-conscious and experience the wonders of Pall-X Zero. Together, we can create magnificent floors while giving the planet a big, heartfelt hug.

The Journey Unfolds: A Five-Day Marvel
Our skilled team dedicated five full days to this transformative project, ensuring every step was flawlessly executed to create a floor that would stand the test of time.
Day 1: Repairs and Sanding Begin
On the first day, we dove into repairs and commenced sanding, leaving no room for imperfections. Our goal was to eradicate all scratches and remnants of the previous finish, leaving a blank canvas to work our magic.
Day 2: Sanding and Filling Gaps
Continuing our journey, we pressed forward with sanding while meticulously filling all gaps using clean sawdust and a specially formulated lizuwy wood floor filler. This attention to detail would set the stage for a flawless final outcome.
Day 3: Gap Filling Completed
As day three dawned, we celebrated the completion of gap filling and diligently removed any lingering residue. We then resumed our sanding efforts, determined to achieve a surface that would radiate perfection.
Day 4: Primer Application and Court Markings
The fourth day was pivotal as we applied the Pall-X Zero base primer, laying the foundation for an impeccable finish. With precision and expertise, we skillfully marked out the boundaries of the badminton court, ready to ignite the spirit of sportsmanship.
Day 5: Lacquer Application and the Final Touches
On the final day, we embarked on the exhilarating journey of applying the first coat of lacquer. Due to the VOC-free nature of the chosen lacquer, patience was key. We ensured sufficient ventilation and left the floor to dry for a full 24 hours. Returning with triumphant smiles, we conducted meticulous touch-ups, guaranteeing flawless adherence for the final coat. The floor was then sealed, ready to astound all who tread upon it.
Results Worth Waiting For: Curing and Unleashing the Court
We advised the client that while the floor would gain its mechanical strength within 48 hours, it required 7-10 days to fully cure. During this period, we urged caution, emphasizing the need to refrain from mopping the floor. This crucial curing time ensured that the floor achieved its maximum durability, ready to withstand the energetic movements and joyous footsteps of eager children.
Perfect Timing: Transforming the Floor during the School Break
We strategically planned the entire project during the school break, allowing ample time for the floor to rejuvenate. By the time the break concluded, the children were welcomed with open arms onto a pristine, brand-new playing surface, radiating with the promise of countless unforgettable memories.
Safeguarding Lacquered School Teak Floors:
The Key to Enduring Elegance in Your Commercial Space
When it comes to maintaining the breathtaking allure of your lacquered teak floors in a bustling commercial environment, we’ve got you covered. Here are the essential care guidelines that will ensure your floors remain a shining testament to timeless elegance:
Sweeping Success: Banishing the Dusty Intruders
In the grand ballroom of your commercial space, let your broom take centre stage. Regular sweeping sessions or the trusty assistance of a commercial-grade vacuum cleaner will keep those pesky dust and debris particles at bay. Give your floors the attention they deserve and let them gleam with resplendent beauty.
The Mop Tango: Cleaning Choreography for Brilliance
Prepare for a cleaning dance like no other! With a damp (not sopping wet) mop in hand, glide gracefully across your lacquered teak floors. Choose a pH-neutral cleaner formulated explicitly for lacquered wood floors, designed to leave them refreshed and radiant. Embrace the rhythm of this delicate choreography to maintain a pristine appearance.
Shielding from Sun’s Harsh Spotlight: Defend Against Fading
Your commercial space may be showered with natural light, but excessive exposure can lead to unwelcome consequences. Shield your lacquered teak floors from the sun’s harsh spotlight by using window treatments or UV-protective films. Preserve their lustrous hue, allowing them to gracefully shine without any fading drama.
Spills and Thrills: Swift Action Saves the Day
In the fast-paced commercial realm, spills are bound to happen. Rise to the occasion and act swiftly! Grab a cloth and wipe away any spills or stains immediately. Doing so will protect the precious lacquer finish, keeping your floors in pristine condition. Show those spills who’s boss and let your floors shine on.
With these essential care tips, your lacquered teak floors will continue to captivate all who step foot into your commercial space. So, let your broom and mop take the lead, shield your floors from the sun’s spotlight, and let furniture gracefully dance across their protective felt pads. Elevate the elegance and longevity of your floors, ensuring they remain the pinnacle of commercial allure.

Highly recommend! Great job, polite workers and reasonably priced. We had rust on our ceramic tiles and the guys did an amazing job, it looks like it’s all brand new again!
Thank you Johnny, I am happy with the work indeed! Also not only Dean and Tom did a great job but they are also very nice and reliable. A pleasure.
Great service. Quick, clean, no dust! Removed about 10 years of wear on pine boards with dog scratches. Looking great now!
Great & friendly service - collected our old grubby Turkish rug and delivered it brighter & clean 3 weeks later, despite being in the middle of their big move.
I signed up Silver Lining Floor Care to re-varnish the floor in our Function Room, as not only had I heard positive things about the work he had completed but Johnny also gave me an exceptionally good price. Johnny and the team arrived when agreed and got on with the job. It soon became obvious that it was going to be a substantially bigger job than first thought. Jonny and I discussed how we were going to manage this. Johnny and his team agreed to work overnight so as not to impact our day to day operation, showing great flexibility and commitment to complete the job. All the Silver Lining team were hard-working, polite and very tidy. They definitely put the customer first. They completed the job to a high standard and we received great value for money. I have no hesitation in recommending Silver Lining Floor Care to others. Ken Slater Club Manager
Such excellent service! Our floors are back to their former glory after messy dogs and years of use. Thank you to the team for always staying in contact, giving great advice and getting the job done in the allocated time! I couldn't recommend them more highly!
With a nine year old cream carpet on our stairs and landing - tea-stains, spills, marks and general dirt are to be expected with a young family racing up and down it every day! We decided to by-pass calling a random carpet cleaner and bring in Silver Lining Floor Care instead, whose qualifications, machinery and excellent reputation goes before them. Johnny and his friendly team arrived. Carefully considering the carpet type, marks and cleaning agents required they got to work and the result were nothing short of 'OUTSTANDING'. From what we thought was just a carpet clean, resulted in a 9 year old carpet looking fresh, vibrant, soft to walk on and as good as a brand new carpet! I would not hesitate to recommend Silver Lining Floor Care to anyone from residential to commercial - you will not be disappointed... in fact you will be AMAZED!
I own and manage Evolve and Grow Ltd a business consultancy service specialising in small to medium sized businesses and as such see clients at home. This means that my carpets are frequently trodden on and it is obviously important that they are kept clean to provide professional image. I decided to enlist the services of Johnny Czarnota from Silver Lining Floor Care recently, to clean the hall and stair carpet. Johnny arranged to come round to quote for the job very promptly and was equally prompt in booking me in to do the job. I found Silver Lining Floor Care to be extremely knowledgeable about all sorts of areas to do with the carpet industry and they did an excellent job at a reasonable price.
In this day and age good customer service is not always easy to find and we feel it is important that it be recognised. We recently had expensive new carpets fitted. In order to empty the bathroom bin, I have to walk through my bedroom. I managed to drop the bin and contents including tube of hair dye on the new carpet. With an appointment booked for you to sort it out for me, I dropped the lid to some make up, then tried to clean it up with vanish which bleached the carpet all around it. Needless to say you sorted it all out for me, good as new and domestic dispute averted. Your customer service was excellent before, before, during and after the job was done. You responded very quickly to sort the problem out and gave me advice on what to and NOT to do if I have a problem again. I have no hesitation in recommending your services to others. Thank you for your commitment to good customer service. Keep up the good work.
Excellent service. Came round when arranged, agreed on a price and then returned at time stated with our much, much cleaner rug. Also very knowledgeable and helpful. Would have no hesitation in recommending to others.
Punctual. Polite. Knowledgeable. Professionally equipped. Realistic tariff. Wonderful results from a difficult job. Would recommend to everyone. See you again next year, Silver Lining Floor Care
Excellent prompt service to clean carpet and dry it out after a plumbing problem. Johnny even left his blower machine overnight for a couple of nights to dry out the carpet. Good to know there are still reliable people out there.
Excellent job. Very caring. Johnny spent two hours testing everything to give us a quote. Then was here the entire day. Very, very thorough. Will always use him to clean our upholstery and carpets.
Another company I called told me it would not be possible to get rid of a large stain on my carpet, but Jonny came and did a fantastic job so now it is virtually unnoticeable. I am impressed by his knowledge, professionalism and integrity. He even called back to check how it looked!
Fantastic, we didn't think Silver Lining Floor Care would get our carpets anywhere near as clean as they did (cream carpets + 2 kids = carpet hell) we have heavenly cream carpets again! I was worried by the lack of prices on the website but Silver Lining Floor Care is very competitively priced and the whole job came to much less than I thought. In fact I had them clean every room!
Jonny was recommended to me through my friends who had their carpet cleaned. He did mine today! Brilliant job, good price and nice guy to talk to which is a bonus 🙂 He knows what he's doing, comes before he starts the job to give you an estimate and looks at your carpet. 5 star service!
They came out over the Christmas/New Year period to deal with a stain on a brand new rug which they took away and dealt with superbly. They have now cleaned and treated the carpets in the house. Both times the service has been brilliant. Johnny explains what he can do and the price before he starts, is on time, polite and efficient. Would highly recommend Silver Lining Floor Care and will definitely be calling on their services on a regular basis.
Absolutely first class service. Silver Lining Floor Care are efficient, knowledgeable and polite. The work they did here cleaning both carpets and furniture was excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend them unreservedly.
I can vouch for Silver Lining Floor Care and the excellent service provided. Very professional cleaning and excellent service. Of course goes without saying all round knowledge about carpet cleaning.
Silver Lining Floor Care did a fantastic job, very professional and at a very realistic tariff. Johnny was a very informative, polite and pleasant young man and he seemed very trustworthy so we will definitely hire him again in the future and recommend him to everyone we know.
Silver Lining Floor Care did an amazing job! I would not hesitate to recommend them or make use of their services again! Very professional and efficient
Excellent results and made the carpet look fabulous. Friendly, professional, trustworthy – They turned up as agreed at 8am on Saturday morning and I left them to finish off the last bits at 1pm. Will use again and have already recommended to a neighbour.
