The sanding process begins with a coarse grade and finish with a fine one. In-between sanding stages dust have to be collected, because dust can scratch the fine and smooth surface on newly sanded floor and also can be mixed with PVA later to fill any appearing gaps. Then knotting solution have to be applied to any knots so the resin doesn't seep through paint layers later. After all this is done, floor boards have to be vacuumed and fine dust completely removed, white spirit can be used for removing the rest of grease and dust. Now the boards are ready for primer or undercoat to be applied before painting and finishing them.
