Vacuuming is the first step to preparing a floor for sanding. It removes any dirt or dust particles and leaves behind an empty, clean surface in need of restoration.
The first stage of the floor sanding process starts by using 40 grit paper, which gets rid of any unevenness and has a smoother texture than before. Next we use 80 grit paper, which creates an intermediate level between roughness and smoothness while also covering up small areas in need of repair, such as gaps or cracks on the surface from where wood may have been lifted off over time. We then move onto 120 grit sandpaper to finish the sanding process.
After sanding the floor, we polish the floor with water-based polyurethane. This will give your floor that shiny new look and feel when finished.
