The South London shopping magnet still retains impressive medieval buildings: from the Whitgift almshouses to the 15th century tower of the parish church (survivor of the 19th century fire) and the splendid wooden hammerbeam roof of Croydon Palace.
Timber retains its uses and popularity in more everyday buildings – in the form of wooden floors. They continue to enhance the interiors of bars, cafes, shops, offices, homes, gyms, galleries and restaurants.
And no wonder. They are still the most hygienic and natural floor surface – and the only one with the potential to appreciate in value as it matures with age.
So your precious floors are worth looking after. When they are underperforming – shabby, marked or scratched – the solution is at hand. Restoration through floor sanding and sealing from a specialist company.
Sanding Wood Floors are your choice for wood floor repairs and refinishing throughout Croydon.
Sanding works well on all kinds of wooden floor – from hardwood boards to parquet blocks. By removing old layers of paint and sealant, the smooth bare wood may be stained for a new colour – and then protected with a fresh finish of lacquer, hard wax or natural oil.
Mess will be minimal as our cylinder machines collect virtually all the dust. And we keep down disruption with flexible working. Weekend or even overnight jobs will ensure closure and loss of business for the shortest possible time.

Did you know about Croydon?
Croydon is a large town in South London, formerly in the County of Surrey, England, in the London Borough of Croydon to which it gives its name. It is situated 9.5 miles (15.3 km) south of Charing Cross. It is identified in the London Plan as one of 11 metropolitan centres in Greater London. Croydon lies on a natural transport corridor between London and England's south coast, to the north of two gaps in the North Downs, one followed by the A23 Brighton Road through Purley and Merstham and the main railway line and the other by the A22 from Purley to the M25 Godstone interchange.
As the vast majority of place names in the area are of Anglo-Saxon origin, the theory accepted by most philologists is that the name Croydon derives originally from the Anglo-Saxon croh, meaning "crocus", and denu, "valley", indicating that, like Saffron Walden in Essex, it was a centre for the cultivation of saffron. It has been argued that this cultivation is likely to have taken place in the Roman period, when the saffron crocus would have been grown to supply the London market, most probably for medicinal purposes, and particularly for the treatment of granulation of the eyelids.
As the town continued to grow, it became popular as a pleasant leafy residential suburb for members of the Victorian middle classes, who could commute to the City of London by fast train in 15 minutes. In 1883 Croydon was incorporated as a borough. In 1889 it became a county borough, with a greater degree of autonomy. The new county borough council implemented the Croydon Improvement scheme in the early 1890s, which widened the High Street and cleared much of the 'Middle Row' slum area. The remaining slums were cleared shortly after World War II, with much of the population relocated to the isolated new settlement of New Addington.
