  • For tips on floor refinishing go to:
  • Instructions for Lightly Refinishing Wood Floors
  • -Note: For refinishing floors with slight wear in the finish (traffic pattern wear), please use the following guidelines.
  • Sand floor with a rotary or orbital buffer and an 80-grit mesh screen. It is not necessary to remove all of the finish; however, the floor should be uniformly smooth. Continue moving machine back and forth in the direction of the wood grain, working toward the wall behind you. Remove and shake out screen when it becomes clogged.
  • Vacuum entire floor. Screen sand floor again with a 100- or 120- grit mesh screen. Hand sand or scrape corners. Vacuum one final time (entire floor as well as around windows, sills, doors, ect.). Apply finish coating following the manufacturers recommendation.
  • Screening Floor
  • -These final steps are necessary for the best "Professional" appearance
  • Slowly lower the floor buffer with a white nylon pad attached over a 120-grit sanding screen. Keeping the buffer balanced, sand the entire floor in the direction of the wood grain, overlapping your passes by four inches, as you work your way to the wall behind you. Remove screen and shake out sawdust as it becomes clogged.
  • Hand scrape and fine sand the areas that the power sander was not able to reach. Vacuum the entire room thoroughly, especially around windows, sills, doors and door frames. Inspect the floor. Hand sand any imperfections and swirl marks that may remain.
  • Follow the manufactures recommendations and guidelines for applying your floor finish.
