HOW TO PREPARE YOUR HOUSE FOR WOODEN FLOOR SANDING
Whether you’re doing it yourself or paying a floor sanding company to do the hard work, there are a few key things that you can do in preparation for your home's wood floor sanding work to begin.
1. Remove furniture from the area
Any area that is due to be sanded needs to be clear of furniture, rugs and any other items that might easily collect dust such as curtains, wall hangings, books, photo frames etc. This can be a lengthy task, especially if having to move large items such as sofas or beds, so give yourself enough time before sanding a wooden floor.
2. Protect your home against dust
Most modern sanding machines are virtually dust-free but there will inevitably be some excess dust that will make its way into other parts of the house.

4. Do a final inspection
Keep an eye out for any loose nails that might need hammering in to avoid the sanding machine catching on it during the process and potentially leaving long-term damage. Check for any loose boards that need to be fixed down, any broken or rotten floorboards that need replacing or any gaps that need filling before being sanded.
5. Decorate first
Any major work such as redecorating, plumbing or wiring should be carried out before sanding floorboards. The only damage that floor sanding
6. Alternative accommodation
If your floorsanding and restoration is an extensive job you might want to consider staying elsewhereuntil it is complete. The scale of the process means that furniture will have to be stored elsewhere and there will inevitably be fine dust floating around, odours from the use of chemical treatments in the air and it can take up to a week for the treatment to be completed.
