The First Steps Towards Restoration

Restoring a painted wood floor is a meticulous process that requires a strategic approach. At Plancher Deluxe, we understand the importance of preserving the original charm of your floors while ensuring their durability. Here are the key steps in this process:

Assessment of the Floor Condition

  • Thorough Inspection: Before any intervention, a thorough inspection is crucial. This allows us to assess the current condition of the wood and detect any necessary repairs, such as replacing damaged planks or fixing squeaky boards.
  • Identification of the Paint: Determining the type of paint used is essential, as it will influence our approach to floor sanding and the finishing products to be used.

The Sanding Process

  • Professional Equipment: The use of professional floor sanding equipment allows for the effective removal of paint while preserving the integrity of the wood.
  • Adapted Sanding Techniques: Depending on the type of wood and the thickness of the paint, different grits of sandpaper will be used.

Specific Techniques for Different Types of Floors


  • Directional Sanding: For parquet floors, directional sanding techniques are applied to respect the pattern and structure of the wood.

Floating and Heated Floors

  • Special Precautions: These types of floors require special attention, particularly to avoid any deterioration due to heat or moisture.

Restoration of Historic Floors

  • Preserving Character: The restoration of historic floors aims to preserve their unique character while ensuring their functionality and safety.

Finishing and Protection

  • Choice of Finishes: After sanding, a wide range of finishes is available, from varnishes to natural oils, depending on the style and needs of the client.
