Posted on April 27th, 2011 In: Blog, Floor Sanding Services Blogs

If you are sanding floor boards, you must know that there are different steps to it. Before you understand what these are, you must know why sanding is done. Sanding is the use of a sand paper to scrub the top layer of the floor. Several wooden floors have top layer of varnish, oil or wax, which can over time wear. The wood also takes considerable wear. In order to remove the top layer, a sanding machine is used.

Different steps

Sanding is often a three step process. The first is the use of a coarse paper to get rid of the top layer. This will remove any old finishes. The second step is the use of a medium grade paper to remove staining. The third is the use of fine grade sand paper for perfect finish. All of this will result in getting a smooth wooden floor.

A fresh layer

Once the bottom layer is exposed, the floor looks new but pale. In order to give it the oriental wood look, one has to varnish it, wax it or use oils. A new layer of staining can also be done. Care has to be taken after this, to allow the new layer to settle.
