Sanding has always created an enormous amount of airborne wood dust. Dust generated by floor sanding is a known toxin and carcinogen. While the level of toxicity varies considerably according to the species of the wood, it is still highly recommended that every precautionary measure be taken. The infiltration and permeation of dust into vents and air conditioning units creates the potential for poor air quality as it is circulated throughout the house, escalating the dangers of the homeowner breathing it in, or having to deal with the nightmare of cleaning it up.
The best way to control dust inhalation is through properly designed and maintained dust containment systems.
How dustless system works?
Traditionally, dust collection for floor sanders consisted of attaching a cloth bag to the exhaust pipe of the sanding machine and taking a "something is better than nothing" attitude. It was better than no collection but it was still very messy, not healthy and left a lot to be desired.
Majestic Hardwood Floors using the Dust Containment System has thrown that method of collecting dust out the window. Our dust containment system is a totally new and innovative solution to the problem. Dust bags don't work so we got rid of them! Without a bag, sanding machines breathe easier and there is no back pressure, so dust is picked up at the floor where it should be. The result allow for a clean surface when preparing your floors for application of stain and finish and further eliminates the concerns for any air borne dust settling into the finish after it has been applied as was the case with the old bag method.
What will you achieve
Our system is the latest advancement in dust containment technology, which provides 99% evacuation of dust from the entire floor sanding process. The reduction of airborne dust exposure results in a much cleaner work area during and after sanding.
Homeowners want a dust-free environment for obvious reasons, and dust containment is becoming an expected service. Instead of being just a competitive advantage for our business, in the future, dust containment will be essential to our ability to compete. No homeowner wants to be prevented from enjoying his or her home, regardless of the work being done. The elimination of dust from the sanding process increases the speed, efficiency and quality of work. Without the need to hang plastic, a homeowner can get back to his or her daily routine as soon as possible.
Ultimately, our system allows us to start and finish the job faster, eliminate dust from settling back down into the finish and limit clean up time for quality results!
