No Dust, No Fuss

Rod Lorenz

Are you looking to refresh your hardwood floors with a sanding treatment but are afraid of the mess? Although the idea of dustless sanding may sound too good to be true, it is very real and has many benefits, which is why you don't have to let the fear of dust stop you from reviving a beautiful floor.

Older hardwood floors can reclaim their beautiful look with a professional sanding treatment. However, many homeowners are hesitant to begin such a project because of the hassle and mess from all the dust created in the process. However, this doesn't have to be the case. Keep reading, because we have the solution. 

Dust can be dangerous.

Even for homeowners who are well prepared for the mess, the health risks of breathing in dust must be minimized. OSHA guidelines for wood dust state that it is “a potential health problem when wood particles from processes such as sanding and cutting become airborne. Breathing these particles may cause allergic respiratory symptoms, mucoul and non-allergic respiratory symptoms, and cancer.” 

The answer is simple—you need to eliminate the dust before it gets into the air. Dustless sanding is an excellent option with which many homeowners are not yet familiar. The Atomic Dust Containment System is a vacuum that will continually extract dust and store it outside the home in a self-contained unit. This means dust gets removed as it is created, which helps maintain a breathable, healthy environment during and after the sanding.

The Benefits

The Atomic Dust Containment System is great for people with dust sensitivities and asthma. It’s also good to use the dustless sanding process when working with vulnerable populations such as children, or when working in a rehabilitation facility or hospital.

It’s also a great option because it can help prevent finish problems since hardwood floor finish problems can be caused by dust that isn’t removed from the floor properly before proceeding to the next step in the process.

Dustless sanding typically takes less time than a standard sanding process since there is less cleanup involved. You don't need to hire a cleaning company to come in after the job is done. If you have the proper system in place, you can rest assured that the large part of the dust should be taken care of.

Be proactive, preserve your health, and save yourself the frustration—let the Atomic Dust Containment System work hard, so you don't have to. Your sanity and your lungs will thank you for it.
