The most important thing to remember when sanding hardwood floors is to sand with the grain, otherwise you will have nasty gouges that are impossible to remove.

Always raise the drum off the floor before starting the sander and do the same when you come to the end of the section you are sanding. This will save on damaging the floor. Sanders often cannot access the corners and you can use a paint scraper followed by a sanding block.

Fill any nicks or gouges in the floor with wood putty and a broad knife. Let the putty dry and lightly sand the area smooth with a medium or fine sandpaper. After sanding you must remove all the dust from the floor and walls. A standard vacuum with a dust filler will do the trick when finished use a tack cloth that is impregnated with wax to wipe the entire surface.
