Wood floor sanding reveals and accentuates the hidden beauty lying within a wood floor, revealing the fullest natural beauty within.

Wood floor sanding requires observance of procedures and materials to be used in the restoration process, combining the use of traditional materials and craftsman skills that are an integral part of wood floor sanding and restoration. We have sanded and restored many types of wood floors and we found in every one of them a different story to tell, we have learned how to listen to them, we can “read” the grain pattern, touch and feel our way along every board, we trust our instincts, and restore a floor how the floor itself suggests. It’s a wood floor sanding skill passed down from the wood restorers who taught us, and perfected over 40 years of wood floor sanding.

Restoration with attention to the detail, using traditional repair and restoration techniques. Our attention to detail and eye for "back to original results", ensures a level of service that is unsurpassed, in a sense, wood floor sanders are mediators between the past and the present. If successful, wood floor sanding can reconnect the property to the beauty of the wood floors past. Acorn’s wood floor sanding can bring a wood floor back to the splendour of its original condition, preserving  patinas that the passage of time has naturally formed.
