Sanding Tools In Colchester

For floor sander hire in Colchester visit Best at hire, your local tool hire centre.

Hire a wooden floor sander to create a beautiful floor for your room rather than investing in an expensive new covering. You can achieve an excellent finish with our professional sanding equipment, which ranges from edging sanders and small, hand-held sanders to orbital and belt sanders.

Preparing your room for sanding

  • Remove everything from the room, including old floor coverings, decorative items, soft furnishings and furniture. Hoover thoroughly.
  • Modern floor sanding machines reduce the amount of dust created if you follow the manufacturer's instructions and empty the bag frequently, but it is still vital to cover any remaining items with dust sheets and to open windows and external doors.
  • Wood filler can fix minor imperfections in the boards before you start sanding, but you need to replace any badly damaged boards and close up larger gaps either by moving boards closer together or by inserting a sliver of timber into the gap then glueing and nailing it secure.
  • Flatten down protruding nails using a nail punch.

Sanding the floor

Using the appropriate grade of sand paper according to the condition of the timber, work slowly and diagonally across the boards, overlapping a little on each strip, and moving the machine regularly to prevent deep ruts forming. Finish the main flooring area with fine abrasive sanding sheets. Use the edging sander to reach up to the skirting boards as the main wood sander will be too large to do this.

Finally, seal your new floor using a couple of coats of floor varnish or paint to protect it from damage.

Reviews from our Colchester Customers

Floor Sander - Electric    5 / 5  
Our floors look like new again. Good value although the sander is pretty heavy so may be worth getting it delivered.
