Floor Sanding London

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

Hire a wood floor sander and create a beautiful wooden floor for your room rather than investing in expensive new flooring. You can achieve fantastic results with our top-of-the-range equipment, ranging from belt sanders and heavy duty sanders to edging sanders.

Getting your room ready for sanding

  • Remove everything you can from the room, including old floor coverings, decorative items, soft furnishings and furniture, then hoover.
  • By using modern floor sanding machines you avoid creating as much dust as with older models, particularly if you follow the manufacturer's instructions and empty the bag regularly. It's still essential, however, to cover remaining items in the room with dust sheets, and to open windows and external doors.
  • Pre-warn neighbours about the impending noise from your sanding machine, and avoid working unsociable hours.
  • Use some wood filler to sort out minor imperfections, but replace badly damaged boards and sort out any large gaps. You can do this either by moving the boards closer together, or by putting in a sliver of timber between the two, gluing and then nailing it into place.
  • Using a nail punch, flatten down any raised nails.

The sanding process

Starting with the appropriate grade of sand paper according to the condition of your timber (we can advise on this), work methodically in a diagonal direction across the floor boards, making sure you overlap a bit on each sanded strip. Keep the machine moving all the time. Finish the main area using fine abrasive sanding sheets, then reach up to the skirting using an edging sander rather than the main sander, which is too bulky to fit up to the edges.

Last but not least, seal the sanded wood using two coats of floor-grade clear wood varnish or paint – this protects the floor from damage.

Quality floor sanding tools at great rental rates

We welcome trade and domestic customers and can advise you on the best equipment for the job. Hire online or call 0344 288 8088, and then collect your items from one of our London depots, from an alternative location in the south east, or from one of our other nationwide hire depots. We can also offer UK-wide delivery. Our main London branch is located at Tower Bridge Business Complex, Clements Road, Southwark, London, SE16 4DG
