Preparation

Preparation of Floor Before Sanding

Although it’s tempting, don’t take any shortcuts. Good prep of a wooden floor before sanding can make a huge difference to the cost and quality of the result.

  • After removing carpet, hardboard, gripper strip and tacks, take a nail punch and hammer and punch down ALL nails 2-3mm under the surface of the wood. Counter sink any screw heads. 

  • Properly counter sunk nails/screws will make your abrasive last longer.

  • Replace any broken boards with reclaimed wood. Avoid using new wood next to old, it won’t blend in when the floor sanding is finished.

  • Stagger any ugly crosscuts where electricians or plumbers have had original floor up in the past.  This leaves a cleaner and more professional finish.

  • Prepping the wood floor in this way will prevent machine damage and allow smoother sanding as well as make abrasive last longer.

WARNING! A poorly prepped floor can damage sanding machinery resulting in a repair bill of hundreds of pounds.
