Creating the Perfect Finish - Electric Floor Sanders
An electric floor sander is a marvel of modern technology, helping to create the perfect finish for wooden floors in a fraction of the time it would take to do it manually. However, achieving the perfect finish requires careful preparation, proper technique and attention to detail.
When approaching any floor sanding job, do adequate preparation. This means weighing the scope of the job and picking the right sander for the task in hand. For large floor areas or multiple rooms, your best bet is a fully vacuuming, belt-driven commercial floor sander. Ensure you do your research and pick a machine from a reputable supplier, as lower end equipment is less likely to sand evenly and efficiently.
Next, ensure that the room is cleared of all furniture and that the floor is totally bare. Give the room a through sweep before starting up the sander and either remove other items such as books, drapes and ornaments from shelves or cover them with dust sheets.
Now you are ready to start, but ensure to observe correct technique. Though the modern floor sander is easy to operate, the trick is to push gently and allow it to do the work. Keep it moving, using either sweeping arcs or straight lines, and ensure that every part of the floor receives equal treatment.
Depending on the features of the floor, for the perfect final finish you may have to use a smaller, handheld disc sander to get right into the corners and give the same even finish to the strips that are adjacent to skirting boards.
