Sand Floors

Plug wood-floor sander into outlet. Moving slowly with controlled strokes, sand each section by moving from one end of the room to the other, ensuring the sander is going in the same direction as the wood grain. Start with 150-grit sanding sheets, and then repeat process with 220-grit sheets.

Remove Sanding Dust

Plug wet/dry vacuum into outlet, adding proper attachments to remove all sanding dust from floor.

Wash Floors

Ensure a perfectly clean wood surface by wiping the entire floor with a damp cloth. Tip: Using a cloth instead of a mop will ensure dust residue is removed from spaces between each strip of wood.
