Choosing the Right Floor Sander for Your Job

Floor grinders are typically used in construction and renovation projects to revitalise floors including concrete floors, wood floors and decking. Floor grinders can give floors a completely new look just by removing old finishes to give you a fresh canvas to start with. You can then start redesigning your floor with new seals. A floor grinder can be the difference between worn-out looking floors and a whole new look to that room.

Firstly, what are floor grinders used for?

To choose the right floor sander for your upcoming project, it’s important to understand the purpose of a floor sander and how it is frequently used in construction and renovation projects. In this blog, we detail everything you need to know about choosing the right floor grinder for your project.

Important things to know before choosing a floor grinder

So, before you start refurbishing your floors, think about what type of floor grinders are out there. Whether you’re a professional contractor or DIYer, it’s always important to find the right tool to achieve the look you’re going for. If you don’t pick the right floor grinder for your project, this can have a major impact on your wood or concrete flooring and leave you with significant damage.

What type of floor grinder will suit your project?

Drum Floor Sander


A drum floor sander is a perfect choice for any builder or handyman as it has the ability to work with a range of surfaces including decking, cork, fibreboard, composition floors and of course, wood. A drum floor sander is also easy to transport, making it quick to take from project to project.

Edge Floor Sander


The edge floor sander is a great choice for sanding in tight access areas like stair treads, closets and on the edge of floors near corners. An edge floor sander is easy to handle and can perform jobs without damaging baseboards or skirting.

Orbital Floor Finishing Sander


The orbital floor finishing sander works well on a range of timber floors like pre-finished plank, laminated floors and parquet. This type of grinder is known to withstand pressure without damaging the integrity of the finish. The orbital floor grinder is suitable for thin laminated flooring and decking.
