Why Dustless Floor Refinishing?

dustless_floor_sandingTrying to find a good time to refinish those old wood floors in your commercial facility can be challenging. That’s especially true when you begin to consider dust and how it can be kicked up and back to everyone in the facility.

Dust from floor sanders can be a major problem, and it’s highly advisable that those operating the machine wear a high-quality dust mask to protect themselves against that flying dust. But what about everyone else who may use the facility?

In some situations, a commercial floor space can be completely sanded and cleaned overnight, but that’s not always practical. If you have wood floors along any space throughout your facility, it’s a good idea to consider a dustless floor sander.

What is a dustless floor sander?

This is a machine that is, in most ways, exactly the same as a regular floor sander, but it comes with a device that suctions the dust away from the air. That prevents the dust from settling on furniture, delicate equipment, or even filtering up into the air and affecting people and their health.

The best type of dustless floor sander for any commercial facility is one that contains a separate canister. These separate canisters will come equipped with a long vacuum hose attached to a powerful vacuum. This can trap a lot of the sawdust that gets created by the sander itself.

Why consider this type of extra expense?

Over time, wood floor surfaces will become worn down, stained, and face other problems. At that time, it’s necessary to completely sand them down to refinish them, or replace them. As long as there is the opportunity to stand them down, it’s the most cost-effective option.

If you have clients in your building, even if they leave at 5 o’clock in the afternoon and don’t return until 9 o’clock the next morning, they may have computers and other sensitive equipment in the facility. The last thing you want is to have all of that sawdust getting thrown around and that equipment.

It’s best to rely on a dustless floor sander instead.
