Today we hired an industrial floor sanding machine. The sanding system is a drum about 250mm (10inches) wide and the heavy weight of the sander really made quick work of rubbing the whole floor!
We returned the machine in less than 3 hours!
The final sanding around the edges was done using our little baby belt sander!
The floor now is clean of plaster dust, paint and dirt. It is ready for the laminated floor files and the glue!
We have already done a small test of the glue a couple of days ago and the piece of the laminated file is really stuck down! Very nice.
