Have you ever found yourself in this situation? You’ve decided to take on a small project using a sander to prepare the wood or drywall. Suddenly, tiny particles of debris coat everything around you like a fine layer of snow, and you can see them floating in the air where your family will breathe them in. Sanding is one of the messiest projects your family can take on, and if your floor needs to be sanded, that’s a sizeable surface that can generate plenty of debris.
One of the ways our Brenner Floors team helps homeowners is through the use of a dustless sanding method to reduce the mess and improve their overall air quality. In this blog post, we’ll talk about the dustless sanding difference and some of its key advantages for your home.
The Problem With Traditional Sanding Methods
Anytime your floors need to be sanded, the end result of having a beautiful, newly restored floor is a tempting prize. However, traditional sanding equipment can leave your home a complete mess, causing sawdust to get into every corner of a room.
Sanding is an important step that can’t be avoided, but even if the person sanding is incredibly careful, dust particles end up in the air and can end up in your lungs. That’s why professional sanders use special equipment to minimize the dust and protect the air quality of a home or commercial space. With dustless sanding, most of the dust is contained inside the equipment, which means it never circulates through your home or business.
Minimize the Mess
Dust from sanding is not only messy, but it’s also very fine, which means it gets into everything from electronic equipment where it can settle into knobs to carpeting, furniture, and even molding.
When homeowners take on these kinds of projects themselves, even when they go to great pains to cover everything in their home with plastic, move furniture, and seal vents, dust still gets everywhere. Dustless sanding reduces the chances that dust will get into your air vents and circulate through your home.
Dustless sanding has other benefits as well:
● It’s safer for pets and occupants, especially those with asthma or other health conditions.
● It reduces the prep and cleanup time on a project.
● It keeps dust from interfering with a perfect finish.
