Sports & Leisure Floor Maintenance Services
There are many different floors available for the sports and commercial industry with varying types of surface material to maintain. V.A. Hutchison Flooring Ltd are an independent specialist hardwood flooring contractor and are able to undertake all types of sports hall refurbishment.
Each floor has a different level of life expectancy, supply cost, performance and maintenance costs.
Many sports centres across the UK are at the point where crucial maintenance is required to improve the playing surface. This would not have been necessary if the correct maintenance was followed, and it has been proven that regular maintenance of hardwood floors will improve the overall life cycle cost and provide a far better and safer surface for the end user.
Some sports hall surfaces can become slippery and there is always a chance that a player can become injured whilst playing on the floors. Slips and fall are one of the biggest areas of litigation, and for this reason alone it is important that the floors are correctly maintained to eliminate any blame for bad surfaces.
We use only the latest lacquers on the market, such as Junckers and Bona.
We will visit any site free of charge and advice on the cleaning and maintenance requirements needed and also work out any long term maintenance plans tailor made to suit each site.
Junckers Flooring will warrant the life and long-term performance of their floors, as long as the flooring is maintained in accordance with Junckers Cleaning and Maintenance Guidelines, and uses Junckers maintenance products.
This is why it is so beneficial to keep hardwood flooring in the best condition possible with regular, cost effective, maintenance to save on the expensive outlay associated with replacement and repairs.
The basic maintenance for sports or commercial is:
• Every 6 months the floor should be checked for wear and cleaned using Junckers neutraliser and cleaner (It is advised that the client carries this out)
• Every 12-18 months it may be required to lightly buff the floor and apply 1 coat of Junckers HP Sport lacquer
If this is kept up properly it may not be necessary to fully re sand the floor for 7-10 years. This will involve cutting the floor back to bare wood, re-paint any sport lines (if required) and re sealing with Junckers HP Sport lacquer. In the past we have been involved in a lot of serious refurbishment projects that may not have been necessary if the correct maintenance regime was followed.
The beauty of a Junckers solid hardwood floor is that even badly maintained floors can be revived!
By following the Junckers maintenance guidelines you will prevent this happening and keep the floor looking great and performing as it should all the time
