How to slash the parquet of your home
Sanding a wood floor is nothing more than sanding the surface of the damaged areas. To leave the floorboard nickel-plated, you must remove the old varnish, scratches, and accumulated dirt, and slashing is the best method you can apply. If you want to know how to do it properly, in this section, we explain it to you.
Remove all furniture
The areas to be sanded must be completely free of obstacles, including decorative objects that may get in your way. If their weight makes it impossible to move them, cover them with plastic to prevent them from getting dusty. Next, give the floorboard area you define a pass with the broom to prepare the wood floor well before sanding.
Sand the parquet
The moment of truth has arrived. For this task, you should use a parquet sander with coarse sandpaper, preferably 36 or 40 grit. Before activating it, ensure that the lever used to raise and lower the sanding roller is pointing upwards. Otherwise, you will scratch and worsen the condition of the wood.
After sanding the affected areas, you have to run a sander known as an edge sander with the same amount of grit into the deepest corners. In the end, the objective you should aim for is to achieve a fine finish that is smooth to the touch, eliminating any marks that may have remained from the previous sanding process. From this point on, you only have to apply finer and finer sandpaper to polish the final result of the floorboard. We recommend you to follow this technique, especially if you are a perfectionist.
Finish the job!
To finish, all you have to do is sweep up the residue left on the parquet again after everything you have done so far. Use 120 grit finishing sandpaper at a higher speed to achieve a perfect result, and then vacuum up any dust left behind and varnish. That’s it! Your wood floor will look impeccable!
Now you need to commit to repeating this process from time to time so that your home looks pristine. Having your decking well cared for always makes a good impression on visitors, so it’s in our best interest to do so.
