Just wondered what your comments were about this:
We had a professoinal sand our floor - new forest red gum.
THe finish is a lovely red smooth look but there are wide - 100 ml - marks from the polishing machine - the polivac - at right angles to the grain. All over the floor about 3-400 ml apart and they dont go away with wetting the floor.
The sander refuses to even look at the floor and says it will be fine to coat. We are sceptical and dont think the product will cover up the marks.
There is also a poor blend between the edging and the main floor.
We have been suggested by a hire shop to go over it with a random orbital sander but the finest grit we can get for this is 100 grit. Tests of this show that the look produced is different - not as finely polished or as deeply red, though it takes away the marks.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
He is not going to come back - he did not even ring me back, after he said he would. So I am looking for what we could do ourselves, unfortunately.
We are grateful for any suggestions.
