Hi All collective knowledge of SE1

I am looking for a guy who can come in and sand a floor back so it can be re-oiled (it has layers of varnish peeling). Any suggestions of someone who has the kit?

You could hire one of these and do it yourself https://www.speedyservices.com/12_0140-h-floor-sander-standard There is a branch in Gt Suffolk St

Having done a similar job in the past, I wouldn't say it was difficult - just like mowing the lawn very slowly. It is very messy though - the dust gets everywhere. Its a good idea to tape up any doors and leave the windows wide open. And wear a dust mask.

I used "The Floor Sanding Experts" for the whole of our ground floor. They did the job well but were not cheap, but there is a lot of kit involved.

I have done it once before and if I am honest - I didn't do a great job. Those machines are not the easiest if you don't have great upper body strength!
