Floor boards without cupping

Plank and Strip Floors – Sand in the direction the boards are laid, with the wood grain.

Parquet and Wood Block Floors – Sand in the direction of the main source of natural light. If there is no natural source of light, sand in the direction of the longest side of the room. If the room is square, sand in the direction the furniture is laid out and how people normally use the room.
