Step By Step Guide to Dustless Floor Sanding
Dust free floor sanding has become very popular during the past few years or so. This is because the earlier methods of sanding used to create a lot of dust and this was responsible for various allergies and respiratory problems.
The Earlier Process
Until a few years back the floor sanding was a messy business as it used to generate a lot of dust, thereby making your home dirty. The earlier process of cloth bad sanding used to leave a lot of dust in every part of the house, thus making it very difficult to clean. The dust gathered from the sanding process would be blown into a cloth bag. Once the bag was full of wood waste was full, the air flow from the sander would drop. When the bag was emptied a lot of dust would fly out thereby causing a lot of mess inside the home.
The New Way
However, with improvements in technology this problem has been addressed to a large extent. Nowadays, the sanding equipments come fitted with HEPA filters and on board separators. Nearly twenty five percent of the dust or waste gets transferred into the containment drum. While seventy percent of clean air is generated from the HEPA filter, the rest comes in from a secondary HEPA filter after the sanding process id completed.
