Sanding is essential for a perfect finish on a new timber floor, and it’s a great way to give an older floor a bit of a facelift and get it looking new again.
To get the best finish on a timber floor, you need to make sure you’re using the right equipment - there are a number of different types of floor sanders out there and they all have slightly different purposes.
Here’s a quick guide to the floor sander, also known as a drum sander.
Assembling the drum sander
Once it’s assembled, you’ll need to install the sandpaper on to the rotating drum. It’s always a good idea to wear protective gloves for this stage, just to be on the safe side.
Installing the Sandpaper
Tip: The dust bag swivels around so you can move it out of the way when you’re sanding against a wall. Just make sure it doesn’t tear!
