Start by removing everything from the room you are looking to refinish. This includes furniture, window treatments and wall hangings as well as closets and wardrobes. You will also need to cover light switches and fittings, electrical outlets and skirting boards with masking tape in order to protect them from damage during your floor reno project. Make sure to vacuum the floor to remove any dirt and debris that may have accumulated. Your floor will now be ready for sanding.
