Floor Sanders Hire
The electric powered floor sander machine for hire in Sheffield, Chesterfield, and in Dronfield is an easy to use electric powered floor sanding machine for use on old wooden flooring boards, block parquet floors, and other types of decorative wood floor surfaces.
One of these items of equipment can speedily sand-away years of dirt, grime, and unsightly paint and old staining's and varnish, allowing you to restore floor boards to your required finish in readiness for re-staining, the application of a varnish, or simply for them to be left in a natural finish.
Most local tool hire shops supply a model of machine that is of the drum floor sander type, along with the option to rent an edger sander too.
Electric Drum Type Floor Sander
This is the most popular type of electric floor sanding machine that is supplied from UK tool hire shops. It works by way of a powered drum that spins around at a very high speed. You attach a sheet of sandpaper to this drum by placing it around the drum and retaining it by a retaining bar that is screwed into place (don’t work though is a very simple task and the only hand tool needed to carry this out is a large flat bladed screwdriver).
As this drum spins around it sands and removes the top surface layer of the wooden surface that you place it upon, this then reveals fresh new wood, which is then available to receive whatever type of decorative finish you wish to coat it with.
The sanding tool will be supplied with a dust bag, this catches a good deal of the dust which the machine creates, but it is worth mentioning that it cannot collect all of it! We recommend that after carrying out the sanding process you vacuum the room several times with a good household vacuum cleaner to prepare the area before applying any stain or varnish.
Useful Tip: Leave the room for 24 hours and vacuum it again, this will let you suck-up any dust that was airborne when the sanding task was being carried out.
Electric Edger Type Floor Sander
When you book your floor sander tool make sure you also arrange the rental of an edger sander. This is a separate tool that is used for the close sanding of wooden floors next to skirting boards, door frames, and architraves. It is needed to sand a strip-area that the large drum sanding machine cannot reach into. It will also help you to achieve a better overall result!
The only accessories that you need to purchase when renting one of these DIY tools is the abrasive sandpaper sheets that fit onto the machine to carry out the sanding action.
Different grades (the roughness) of sandpaper is available from very course through to fine.
You should use a grade of abrasive paper that allows you to remove the dirt and old varnish from your flooring and which also gives you the opportunity to sand-away any nicks, marks, or noticeable imperfections that may be present.
