The Easy Process of Sanding a floor
To many people out to renovate their old wooden floors sanding a floor can be an uphill task. But if you take the time out to really understand the issues involved, sanding a floor becomes very easy. The only thing necessary is for you to take up the necessary effort and set aside the time to do it. Let us analyze the process to find out what it is all about.
The initial step
While sanding is going on, everything in a room tend to be covered with dust. So it is better to remove the furniture, curtains and the floor coverings from the room. Inspect the floor closely for gaps between the boards, split boards, nails and tacks etc. If you find that the floor is in good order you can get ready for floor sanding. If not make the necessary repairs so that you can continue with the process. Also remove any previous finish using polishes, wax or oil.
Process of sanding
If the floor area is small, it can be sanded with a portable rotary sander so that you can sand those corners and areas that can’t be reached with the bigger sander. For larger areas, use a drum or belt sander for the main part of the wood floor. Use the portable sander for those spaces that can’t be reached.
As you can see the process of sanding a floor is not the uphill task that you were afraid of.
