I think this is a cool picture. I remember doing these Los Angeles oak floors. They were very un level and I had to go back and spot sand a bunch of low spots in the floor after we did the body cuts. That is probably one of the most frustrating aspect of sanding a floor because it take a lot of extra time and its a pain in the butt to go back and do it. But if you don’t spot sand those low areas then the original finish will stay on and the new finish will be applied and you will be able to see the difference. Plus it is hard on your machine when you have low areas because the drum will pick up those low spots and the paper will start to move. If it moves too much the paper will come off the drum or rip and then your going through paper and that’s costing money. I remember on this floor we put the second coat down and the thermostat was turned up to like 80 degrees which is way too hot for the finish to cure. You want it at 65-70 degrees, no higher then that. But I came back the next day and there were bubbles in the finish because the finish dried too quick. It wasn’t a big deal because it was only the second coat and we were going to buff out the floors anyway for the third coat. Just remember to turn your thermostat to 65-70 degrees. We do floor sanding in Los Angeles so give us a call if you need an estimate.
