Victorian Floor Restoration
PROJECT: Reveal, clean and seal an original Victorian floor which had been covered with Linoleum and Carpet for over 50 years.
You can see from the pictures that the floor had been covered first with an old plastic vinyl which had been glued down and then later hidden under a carpet. The customer had tried removing the vinyl themselves to reveal the floor but gave up after eight hours and called in Tile Doctor.
Removing the Vinyl was arduous work and care was required not to damage the floor underneath; we managed however using a combination of elbow grease, various small tools and a floor steamer
