Sanding Tools In Eastleigh

For floor sander hire in Eastleigh and the Southampton area, then visit Best at hire, your local tool hire centre.

It may seem like a daunting prospect to restore floorboards to their former glory, but if you hire a belt sander or other wooden floor sander, and prepare for and carry out the sanding process carefully, you can achieve great results without calling in the professionals.

Our extensive range of sanders for hire includes edging sanders; small, electric hand sander tools; medium duty wood sanders and heavy-duty belt sanders.

Preparing the space for sanding

  • Remove everything from the room, including old floor coverings, soft furnishings, furniture and even pictures. If you can't remove everything, cover remaining items with dust sheets.
  • Clean the floor and knock in any nails that are sticking out.
  • Open windows and external doors. Gather all the tools and materials you will be using, then seal off internal doors with masking tape to prevent dust reaching other rooms.
  • Replace damaged boards and fill large gaps – either by prising them up and moving them closer together; by inserting a small sliver of timber; or simply using a wood filler if the imperfections are very small.
  • If you have neighbours close by, it may be polite to warn them about the potential noise they will experience while the work is going on.

The sanding process

Follow the sander manufacturer’s instructions to make sure you use the equipment correctly – and use the appropriate grade of sanding sheets depending on the quality of your floorboards.

Work over boards diagonally, overlapping each area, and keeping the machine moving all the time to prevent deep ruts forming. Start with coarser sanding sheets if your boards are in bad condition, moving on to finer sheets later. Reach the skirting boards by switching to a compact, hand-held edging sander.

Seal with two coats of a floor-grade clear wood varnish or paint. A semi-matt rather than a gloss finish will give the floor a more contemporary look.
