Hardwood flooring is a brilliant addition to any home. It looks fantastic, comes in a range of styles and colours and is totally unique based on the wood grain. Wood floors are also easier to keep clean than carpets and are less prone to staining. This means they can last a lifetime if you look after them well.

While hardwood floors are the perfect addition to your home, it’s important you take care of them.

This is a technical job which needs to be done right to maintain the floor’s stability and appearance. Sanding is one of the main jobs that you’ll need to conduct when your floor starts to become scratched. Doing so will help to give it a brand new look and feel. This could be done by professionals, or you could hire equipment to carry out the work yourself.

Benefits of Hiring & Sanding Your Own Floors

There are lots of benefits to DIY floor sanding if you’re confident and well-prepared.


A professional sanding service is likely to cost much more than hiring a sander and doing the work yourself. You can hire the sander for the limited time that you’ll need it without having to buy the machine outright. Hiring is a cost effective and space saving option.

The machine will also come with insurance so that damages won’t cost much money. You also don’t need to worry about buying a whole new sander for yourself if something goes wrong.

Work on Your Own Property

Working on your own property can be incredibly fulfilling. You’ll gain the satisfaction of knowing that the finished work was done by your own hands and it will be a fantastic talking point when guests ask about your new flooring.
