Can you sand and refinish hardwood floors yourself?


Of course you can. The only question, really, is how good that sanding and finishing is going to be. No one can do something for the first time and be as good as someone that has been doing it for 5-10-20 years. With that in mind, do as much research as you can.



  1. Thank you so much. I have spent hours to do the research, watched the a lot of YouTube videos. Had I go to sand my bedroom floor and was disappointed with a result. First: the rental drum sander only did 1 inch line of sanding. I thought it should be full width of drum, but floor looks ok, flat and clean. But edge sander was very hard to use and I practically ruined my floor all perimeter of it. It is so wavy now. I am trying to fix it with small orbital sander but it very little change. Is any way I can fix my first DIY flooring project? I need to do the rest of the house and I wish I had a money to hire professional but I have choice between not to do anything or do it myself. The floor was ruined by previous owner.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge by posting such amazing videos for individuals to watch, it’s greatly appreciated!!

  3. I don’t think so, because it is quite a complex process, therefore I would recommend to call in an expert for the job.
