Granwood flooring is a composite wood flooring, crafted by Granwood Flooring Systems and sold as tiles. Though unlike other wood flooring, Granwood flooring is installed in the same way that tile flooring is installed, through the use of adhesive and grout. Once installed, the flooring requires the same care as most hardwood floors. You can even sand a Granwood floor to level the floor before sealing. Granwood recommends using a standard sanding machine for sanding.

  1. 1

    Rent a drum sander for use on your Granwood floor. Home improvement stores that rent constructions equipment, such as Lowe's and Home Depot, generally offer drum sanders amongst their rentals.

  2. 2

    Place coarse-grit sandpaper on the belt of the drum sander. The process to insert sandpaper onto a sander belt is different for each make and model of drum sander, so follow the directions provided with the sander. If the sander doesn't come with directions, ask the employee at the store from which you are renting the sander for a demonstration on how to change the paper on the sander.

  3. 3

    Stand at one corner of the room in which the Granwood flooring is installed. Press the power button on the sander to power the sander on.

  4. 4

    Begin moving the drum sander immediately. Move the sander to the left across the floor 2 to 3 inches. Allow the sander's natural progression to move it forward over the floor's surface as you go over the floor, and pull the sander back only when you reach a wall.

  5. 5

    Go over the entire floor using this method. Keep the sander handle at a 30- to 45-degree angle to make sure the drum of the sander sits fully against the floor throughout the process.

  6. 6

    Change the sandpaper to fine-grit paper if you want a smoother finish on the floor. Go over the entire floor again, using the same right-to-left method.
