History abounds in the Great Hall, the survivor of Eltham Palace and ‘built by Edward the magnificent, King of England. .’
It is noted for its 15th century hammerbeam roof, one of the best of its kind. Your own natural wooden floors may be of humbler construction, but they are still being prized: for their beauty and hard wearing qualities.

The Eltham Floor Sanding Services!
Eltham Palace was built in the 13th century and enjoyed by Elizabeth the First to escape the cares of state.
Here Edward the Third established the Order of the Garter - and Henry V brought his triumphant army after Agincourt to camp in the park.
The palace and its chapel were pulled down during the Commonwealth, wth the Hall used as a barn and the moat covered with grass and desolate, though the bridge of 1396 provided a clue.
Happy that it was restored in the 1930s and is now one of the showpieces of south east London.

Don't botch it! Tips on taking care when sanding wooden floors
With their timeless appeal and near-guarantee that they'll boost the value of a property, it's no surprise that wooden floors are so popular.
Of course, like any design feature, wooden floors need care and attention in order to stay looking spick and span. We've put together some tips on how to protect your floor when it comes to the all-important task of sanding.
Keep it clean
Whether you're doing a DIY job or are getting a professional in, make sure that whoever's responsible for the sanding thoroughly cleans the area first.
After any furniture has been moved, it's a good idea to hoover the outskirts of the room with the pipe attachment then move into the middle with the bristles. If other repair or renovation works have been going on, there are all sorts of tiny bits and bobs that could get inside the sanding equipment - such as runaway finish nails or staples from underlay paper. Don't risk it!

Stop dust in its tracks
One of the most grim problems you can come across while sanding wooden floors is the sudden rising of clouds of dust. It's important to have a plan in place to prevent any problems to your health or the property.
This could be as simple as using catcher bags on the side of your machinery, especially the edger. Or it could mean building a more sophisticated dust containment system using a pipe and motors to channel the dust away into a receptacle.
Keep your tools ship-shape
All tools need maintenance, but some pieces of your sanding kit require some special love and TLC. When you're spreading filler, keep your putty knife and trowel clean with stainless steel cleaner to avoid it caking on and making the tool impossible to use later.
And remember, filters in vacuums need to be emptied regularly to avoid a build-up of dust particles. Make sure you keep an eye out on the pulsing pin - they're often fragile and easily broken.
