Over 20 years operating in London and across the United Kingdom Dane Care contractors have commissioned or refinished 1000’s of floors and built an enviable reputation for flexibility and reliability in handing over the most beautiful wood finishes possible. Out of this have come numerous innovations in technique and tool which we pass on to our customers for goods.
The job also involves facilitating maintenance of floors to prevent damage and further sanding work in the future even in very high wear scenarios. This is done by training clients’ staff or quoting for our own maintenance services. This sets us apart from other flooring tradesmen, since we making product decisions in the knowledge that we will be answering for them in years to come.
Wood that is supplied unfinished or has sustained damage finish, will need suitable preparation before finishing. This will either be scrub washing or sanding during which dust or noise disturbance is kept to the absolute minimum through Dane Care’s skill and the use of the best equipment available. When correctly maintained, an oiled finish should be everlasting. The importance of this cannot be understated given that a great many floors, worktops, tables etc are nowadays constructed using veneers of limited thickness and floors in many homes or businesses are extremely difficult to take out of use for more than a short period.
A Danish oiled wood surface has not got the ‘coated’ look you may associate with a varnished one. To the contrary, the wood itself is smoothed and very well honed, so that its specular reflection is perfect at low angles, but minimal at high angles. In practice this means when walking into a room you see a smooth and clean surface. When you’re on the floor and looking down, however, there is no reflection to prevent you seeing the beauty of the wood grain and colour. Furthermore, you are in direct contact with the wood so it feels warmer and indeed sounds quieter.
Drawing on a broad supplier base we can offer a wide variety of lyes, stains & oils for finishing woods. All are previously tested on projects and are sure to meet designers’ & their customers’ most discerning needs. Training instructions are prepared either with floors in mind or for work on other surfaces.
The business is unique in having gathered, after 20 years of work, well over 2000 customers who remain in touch and draw on our product supply or maintenance service. They share their experiences so we can be confident in saying how our finishes will be after 1, 5, 10 or even 15 years.
Every project and enquiry brings something new so please get in touch to discuss your needs. Its always a pleasure to talk!
