Floor sanding is the process of sanding the top surface of the floor, be it timber, cork tiles, particle board or even parquet. If proper maintenance is not kept then these coatings will be compromised, this will lead to a re-sand of the entire floor. The areas where the large sanders cannot reach, such as edges, corners, and stairs, are sanded by an edger/hand tool.
