Dorking – Out of the Woods

Polesden Lacey is a Grecian-style mansion of 1824 (built on the site of a previous house owned by the playwright, Sheridan).

Mainly Edwardian inside and famed for the parties given by the famous Edwardian hostess, Mrs Greville, it was the honeymoon residence of George V1. The hall is of note, with one wall incorporating the wooden reredos from the Wren City Church of St Matthew, Friday Court, demolished in 1881.

St John’s at Wotton is not only delightfully situated but has a Norman tower with a most unSurrey-like pyramid roof. It contains the Evelyn chapel, where John Evelyn, the famous diarist and fellow of the Royal Society, and his relatives are buried.

Lovers of English woods and timber have cause to be grateful to Evelyn. His book, Silva, of 1664 was one of the earliest to make the case for the planting and preservation of trees.

Is It Time to Refinish My Hardwood Floors?

When it comes to hardwood flooring, beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder. What gives plenty of character and charm for one person will simply look like a dirty and damaged floor to another. But there are some surefire signs that it’s time to refinish your hardwood floors to keep them looking their very best.

Age

If your floor hasn’t been refinished for the last ten years, then the chances are the finish will have worn through in places, particularly in high traffic areas. In low traffic areas like a bedroom, you may be able to screen and recoat your floor to give it a new lease of life, but a living room or hallway will need sanding back to the raw wood.

Scratches

A few light scratches are nothing to worry about, but if there are deeper scratches or cracks in your flooring, then it’s time for floor sanding and finishing. If the damage is particularly bad, then you may need to think about wood floor scratch repair which is best left to the floor sanding specialists.

Fading

Where floorboards are exposed to the sun, they may become bleached and faded. Floor sanding will strip the entire floor back to the raw wood, ready for finishing with a UV protective polyurethane or oil to prevent sun damage reoccurring.

Staining

Staining from water damage can sometimes be remedied by floor sanding, and if the wood shows signs of cupping it can be sanded flat, though you’ll need to proceed with caution. More pronounced cupping, popped floorboards and those stained with animal urine will require specialist wood flooring repair.

Greying

This is particularly noticeable on light floorboards, and if your floor is showing signs of going grey then you’ll need to act fast. That’s because your floorboards are absorbing water from every spill, muddy pair of shoes, pet paws and even cleaning products that come in contact with the wood. Catch it in time and you’ll be able to remedy the situation with floor sanding and finishing – however, if the boards start to go black they’ll need to be replaced entirely.

Try the water test

Still not sure whether you need to refinish your hardwood flooring? Then try this simple test – drop a teaspoon of water on the floor and if it forms a ball, your flooring finish is still good. However, if the water is absorbed then you need floor sanding and finishing to keep your hardwood flooring looking gorgeous for another 10 years.
