Clear your space

Before you start make sure that you have cleared the floor completely, there is nothing worse than working around furniture and finding out that you’ve missed a spot. When you move furniture make sure that you don’t mark your solid wood flooring, but if you do, remember you can always sand the scratches out.

Sanding or polishing

Although your floor doesn’t need to be as durable as a high-rise viewing platform you don’t want to damage it when sanding, so before you start check that it is still thick enough.

If you hire a sander get some practice before turning it on, they can be quite cumbersome and hard to use, so knowing what it feels like first will help. If you opt to polish your floor, make sure that there are no small stones or similar that could leave marks as you buff.
