Sanding Uneven Hardwood Floors

I'm going through the same issue as we speak!

I've read (of course, after sanding with 20, 36, 60, 100 grits normally) that if the floor is uneven, that one should do the first sanding at 45° angle to achieve a cross-cut.

  • Sand diagonally at 45° across the room in both directions using coarse grit abrasive.
  • Only make one cut on both diagonals, this will achieve a basic level.
  • Now complete the floor as for a level strip or plank floor.
  • Use the same grit abrasive as was used on the 45° cut for the first cut parallel to the planks or strips.
