Sanding Stairs Problems...

Reasons for NOT sanding your stairs... Because this is a nasty job, pretty much all floor sanders really don't want to get involved and there are many reasons. For instance, if you look at our images, you will see a shadow up the center which is caused from contamination over the years from the lead based paint applied early in their life. Secondly, there aren't any tools specifically made for the job which results in many hours of hand finishing, in an attempt to create the lush finish achieved on the surrounding floors. Especially in between the spindles that support the bannister rails, where they meet the treads as sanding across the grain can destroy to finished appearance even moreso if stained. All in all, the technicians are working in very cramped conditions and the operations are very damaging to the hand power tolls with heat build up destroying at least one machine when used over a typical set of Victorian stairs...
