There are some hard work jobs that you should not do alone. If you are capable of doing it then go ahead. But often times, you need an expert to do the job properly such as floor sanding.

Sand Your Floor

  1. Check if the room has base shoe at the bottom, you need to remove it and re-install later. You may not be aware but edge sanding can lower your floor and it leaves baseboard standing on a plateau. If you remove the base show, you are removing this problem also. But if you have a new baseboard and no molds, you can leave it as it is.

But what you don’t know is that urine from our pets can penetrate deep into the woods which cannot be removed anymore. Though you can try bleach formula the result is still the same. The stain might not be that visible anymore but it’s still there. The best solution for this one is to replace the wood or just accept thatitsthere. 
  3. Machines for the floor. There are two types of machine used to sand the floor, the edger to sand the baseboard and a drum sander to sand most of the floor.

Do not waste your time picking a machine to use before you even know how to use them. Just hire an expert and be done with the job.
  4. Prepare the room. If you are going to do floor sanding, you have to prepare the room. There are preparation steps you should do.
