Re: Sanding and polishing of wooden floor - looking for someone experienced

If this is a rented apartment, and if things have gone well enough with your landlord up till now, you might consider asking him/her for the name of their preferred contractor. That may involve a discount, especially if the landlord owns many properties. Also, the job will then get done to the landlord's required standards, so no further trouble about this later.

Before you do any of it, though, check how old it is, and compare with the table of how long things last, from the Mieterverband. It may be that you are liable for only a portion of the costs,.especially if the floor is old.

Speak to the landlord and make some financial arrangement with him.
