Wood floors are popular in many British homes. Some people also like the look of bare floorboards with the touch of a rug in the middle of the room. Stripped back floors can bring a sleek and modern touch in any house. They are also easy to keep clean and sanitized in comparison to carpets which can hoard years of dust and crumbs. 

If you have newly removed your carpets and installed floor boards, then you may want to consider sanding your floor. Sanding is essentially removing the top layer of the wood. Sanded wood will look like it is fairly new. It will also remove any layers of polish or stain giving you clean and bare woods from which to start again.

Should you sand your own floor or hire a professional?

Like most home improvement tasks, you usually have the option of hiring a professional or doing it yourself. Hiring a professional is often the less time consuming route since they have years of experience that they can apply to the task. However, it can also be costly and some rogue companies may cut corners and not do the job exactly how you want them to. 

Given these factors, hiring a high quality, reliable and robust floor sander may be exactly what you need.

Should you buy or hire a floor sander?

Floors sanders are expensive investments. It is also not a task you will do regularly. Most people will only need to sand a few rooms, and therefore buying a floor sander will not be cost effective. There is also the task of storing it when it is not in use which also needs additional room. For home DIY floor sanding you can hire a well maintained floor sander from a local hire store.
