If you’re looking to sand your hardwood floors, you may be wondering if you can use an edging sander to do the entire floor. The short answer is yes, but it’s not the best option.

An edging sander is a small, handheld device that’s designed to get into tight spaces, such as around the edges of the room and along baseboards. It’s also useful for sanding corners and other areas that are difficult to reach with a larger drum sander.

However, an edging sander is not as powerful as a drum sander so it will take longer to sand a full floor with it. Additionally, the edger has a smaller sanding surface that may make it more difficult to get a smooth finish.

If you’re only sanding a small area, such as a closet or a bathroom, then an edging sander may be a good option. However, if you’re sanding an entire room, it’s best to use a drum sander.

Here are some of the pros and cons of using an edging sander to sand a full floor:
