Called in towards the end of an extensive fit-out, Premfloor were requested to deploy on short notice with the target of completing works over as short a time as possible. Work involved the repair of several damaged and chipped nosings, polishing all treads and risers along with two plynths and landings.
Building Site Environment
Abrasive Grind & Polish
Mosaic anti-slip tiles
Carefully avoided abrading mosaic
The project was the main flight of stairs, a half landing, and three more steps leading to the first floor. A flat skirting was present throughout the area. The side of the stairs required polishing along with a 2m plinth located next to the stairs.
Residues of cement, self leveller, adhesive, dirt, grime were evident. We repaired areas of heavy scratching where previous preparation works were poorly done.
The landing featured a flat skirting sitting on the terrazzo, and due to previous angle grinding was heavily scratched. Pitting had formed on the surface of the terrazzo which we reduced with several grades of diamond grinding and polishing.
A white metal balustrade was present with square holes every other step. The balustrade also ran against the wall for around 1.5m making it challenging to clean completley, we were forced to use some cleaning solution where unreachable.
Once all the awkward areas were completed, we started working on the ground floor terrazzo plinth and along the sides of the stairs. We successfully removed white paint, plaster and over 30 years of grime.
Once we'd completed all nosing repairs and polishing, a comprehensive clean was conducted washing with fresh water and allowing to dry. Once dry, 2 coats of sealer were applied and allowed to cure overnight.
