Always clean meticulously with a vacuum cleaner after each sanding, including any dust traps (skirting, radiators, pipes, window sills, etc).

Sand the wooden floor using an appropriate system and abrasive grades, depending on condition of surface and wood species. Cracks of 2 mm wide or less should be filled with Lianfloor and sanding resumed with 80 or 100 grit paper depending on the last grit used.
Finish with a finishing grade up to grit No. 120 or 150 depending on the wood species and the thickness of the wear layer.

Surface preparation for new wood surfaces
