    DIY - Floor sanding for fine finishes

    Published on 20 February 2019, Wednesday, 8:03 PM

    Floor sanding is not just for the experts.

    In fact, with the right equipment and a bit of know-how, just about anyone can do it.

    Using a sander to keep this area of the home looking great is an ideal way to keep your whole house looking its best. While carpet occasionally needs relaying, and tiles or vinyl will need replacing, wood floors are no exception to the need for the occasional bout of maintenance.

    One of Kennards Hire's best floor sanders for the job is an orbital floor sander.

    It is most often used for fine finishes on timber floors, like cork or parquetry designs.

    The orbital floor sander has four grades of screenback available and an adjustable height handle so anyone can safely use this equipment without bending or overstretching.

    A safety catch on the switch will prevent accidental starting, and it's important to remember that while working with any sanders, proper safety precautions must be undertaken such as wearing hearing protection and suitable protective masks.
