Some Basic Tips on Floor Sanding and Finishing

Floor sanding tips
It is important that sanding is done in the right manner or otherwise it can cause more harm than good. Any repair such as hammering down the loose nail and filling up of gap should be done before sanding. Make sure to use the best equipment and machinery as otherwise you can not only damage the floor but also the machine. Always move the sanding machine in the direction of the grains of the wood on your floor or else you will end up with scratches on your wood.
It is important that you select the color of the stain and that of the finish prior to the application of both on the floor. Make sure that they match and compliment each other. Once you have applied the stain, let it dry completely. You can choose from a variety of different finishes for your wooden floor. It entirely depends upon your likes and preferences. After the whole procedure make sure to maintain the wooden floor with regular cleaning vacuum.
