Floor sanding can be a tricky thing. You need the right products for the job or you will spend too much time and too much money trying to accomplish your goal. The material this product is made of is made specifically for floor sanding. This is the stuff that contractors use - only the best! Forget the stuff that is offered at the rental stores or products you buy in home centers. They are not made to withstand the rigors that heavy-duty floor sanders place on them. If you are a contractor trying to make your way through this competitive business or if you are a "weekender" needing to spruce up the homestead, this is the product you need.
