How to Get Wood Floors Ready for Sanding

Position the pry bar as close to the nail as possible and use a hammer to help remove base shoe moldings. (Use a nail set to drive a stubborn nail through the molding.)

Remove the pry bar and reinsert it as close to the nail as possible. Pry the molding loose at each nail to avoid breaking the molding. If a nail refuses to budge, use a nail set to drive the nail through the molding.

Sweep the floor again, if necessary.
