DUSTLESS SANDING... no more mess!
Dust is a big issue... probably the biggest issue people have with restoring their floors. Coming home to a thick layer of dust on and in everything in your home is a daunting thought. Dust on your walls, in your curtains, throughout your cupboards, in your duct work. How does that sound?
Until recently, this was part and parcel with having your floors sanded. I’m guessing you don’t really want that hassle.
We offer dustless sanding as a standard feature on every floor we work on. (We kind of have to… it’s in our company’s name.) This standard dustless package is a huge upgrade over traditional sanding with a dusty cloth bag.
FREE SERVICEOur standard
Our Standard Dust Control set up comprises of a very powerful multi-component vacuum system. The vacuum is attached to a pre-separation drum that we have modified with double cyclones for increased efficiency. This set-up is able to facilitate multiple hoses.
These hoses get hooked up to all the hardwood floor sanding machines... the belt sander, edgers and buffer.
The belt sander then has a large cyclone HEPA filter and pre-separator attached to it. The cyclone creates a vortex between the air and dust made from the sander. This allows the dust to be separated and then efficiently sucked into a sealed drum.
It's very effective. We are able to contain at least 97 percent of the sanded dust with this set-up.
But even though the standard system above is state-of-the-art and highly effective, despite what anyone says… there is no dust containment system that can collect one hundred percent of the dust created. It’s impossible.
That's why we offer this second choice. Everything above in Option 1 above is included... but there's 3 added features that guarantee a zero-dust environment after we have finished restoring your floors:
UPGRADE 1We hang
plastic to seal
On some projects there are rooms that need to be sealed off from the main work area. Tiled kitchens, carpeted living rooms etc. With this option, plastic sheeting will be hung up (with non-marking painters tape) in any of these non-work areas so we can form a protected dust free zone.
UPGRADE 2We use our
The neat contraption in the image is called a BuildClean. It sucks in dust filled air and passes it through multiple filters. After it removes the microscopic dust particles, the clean air is blown back out into the room. It's a powerful little system and helps catch any stray dust particles the main dustless system misses.
wipe down at
end of job.
And finially, at the end of the project we will come in and wipe up any last remaining dust. We’ll wipe down your walls, light fixtures, windows, ledges, cupboards, pretty much everything in the rooms that we sanded and refinished. The end result is a spotless, dust free environment.
Which option should I choose?
Either choice will provide a better result compared to the traditional way of sanding floors. Your choice between the two will depend on how far you want to go to ensure your home is dust free. If you are still renovating after we have finished your floors, then Option 1 would probably be the more logical choice.
But if you plan to move back in straight after your floors are done... and you don’t want to spend days cleaning up, then Option 2 will be a wise investment.
If you would more information about either of these options, please don’t hesitate to get in touch or ask during your in-home quote.
