The old Kent village rapidly suburbanised after the coming of the railway in 1857. Some grand houses were built but even the more modest local dwellings and commercial buildings have made the most of timber in their construction. Wooden floors are prominent among the most enduring and best-loved features.
Easy to maintain, but subject to the depredations of feet and furniture, your shabby and marked floors deserve a makeover. This is a straightforward task when you decide on wood floor restoration from a specialist floor sanding company.
Make your floors in Beckenham as good as new with wood floor repair and polishing services from Sanding Wood Floors.
On hardwood boards or parquet blocks, sanding removes old paint and sealants to a smooth finish. The bare wood is then ready for the fresh protection from your choice of sealant: lacquer for wear; oil or hard wax for the traditional look.
Dust is a thing of the past with the dustfree sanding from our cylinder machines. And we’ll ensure disruption and closure is kept to a minmum by working flexibly - at weekends or even overnight - to fit around your domestic and business schedule.
Your period floor will come up like new. After repairs to damaged blocks with reclaimed materials, herringbone, mosaic or parquet floor sanding and sealing will create an authentic finish to rival the original.

Useful facts about Beckenham:
Beckenham is a tow] in the London Borough of Bromley, England. It is located 8.4 miles (13.5 km) south east of Charing Cross and 1.75 miles (2.8 km) west of Bromley town. Until the coming of the railway in 1857, Beckenham was a small village in the county of Kent with almost completely rural surroundings: once a family of entrepreneurs began the building of villas here, its population soared from 2000 to 26,000 during 1850-1900 and throughout the rest of the century. The current population is nearly 82,000.Today it is very much in London suburbia, although some of the grand houses of the early days remain.
The settlement is referred to as Bacheham in the Domesday Book of 1086, and in the Textus Roffensis as Becceham. The name is thought to derive from Beohha's homestead (Beohhan + ham in Old English).The name of the small stream here - the River Beck - is most likely to have been named after the village. Although early written history tells little of the area, archaeological evidence at Holwood Park, where Stone Age and Bronze Age artifacts have been found, reveals some evidence of early settlers. A Roman camp was sited here, and a Roman road, the London to Lewes Way passed through the district.
One of the interesting landmarks in Beckenham is the Chinese Garage, now a listed building. It is built in an unusual Japanese pagoda style and deals Peugeot and Kia cars. There is also St George's Church, dating back to 1100 but mostly rebuilt at the end of the 19th century. The lych gate is 13th century, one of the oldest in England, and the almshouses date back to 1694. There are two old pubs, Ye Olde George Inn (1662), and the Three Tuns (now a branch of Zizzi restaurants). Kelsey Park is another landmark. It was part of the Kelsey Estate, but the mansion no longer remains. The only surviving buildings are the two Grade II listed lodge cottages at the entrance, which are over 200 years old.
