While you could perhaps move stuff from one side of the room to the other while doing the sanding, it is much better if the room is cleared completely. This should include soft furnishings and furniture, plus any existing floor coverings such as carpets, underlay and grippers. Any screws or nails that are protruding from the floorboards will also need to be removed or punched below the surface.

Once the sanding has been finished your floor may need some minor repairs and general tidying up. Larger nail and screw holes can be filled with an appropriate wood filler and given a final rub down with smooth sandpaper. Cracks and splits can also be given the same treatment. If there are any lumps of wood missing these can be carefully repaired, filled and also rubbed down.

Before the newly sanded wood floor is given its final coats of varnish, it should be sealed with a good quality product like Liberon. While some people think that this is no longer necessary, you are only going to do this process once, so you might as well do it properly. Wood sealer gives the floor that extra bit of protection and helps prevent damage from staining, heat and scratching. It also builds a good base onto which the final varnish can be applied.
