Does Floor Sanding Create a lot of Dust?

Does floor sanding create a lot of dust during the floor refinishing process is a question we are frequently asked. Especially when dealing with both commercial and domestic customers during the consultation phase.

At Sussex Floor Restoration, we take pleasure in treating your premises or home the way we would like ours treated when doing work on it. We always offer our customers the finest experience possible.

Our extensive dust control system, which is connected to all of our equipment to sand floors, is one of the key elements in dust management.

Consider our dust control system to be like an enormous vacuum cleaner!

However, it is not just mess that needs to be a consideration when you begin to plan to sand your floor.

As a professional wood floor restoration company, we also take into account the types of wood dust created. In addition to the tiny particles of wood produced during sanding, wood dust can also contain bacteria, fungal and moss spores.

The quantity and type of wood dust will depend on the wood being processed, the machine we are using, and how much sanding is required, for example, if the floor is damaged it may require more aggressive sanding.

The biggest risk from fine, uncontrolled sanding dust, is that you can breathe this into your lungs where it will potentially do damage.

Safety risks should also be taken into account because wood dust is flammable and, in certain situations, could cause a fire or explosion!

Every year, premises are severely damaged or destroyed by wood dust fires. To find out more, click the link below:

It also makes sense to control sanding dust. Should you have a commercial property (such as a school hall, gym, community hall etc) sanded, it is important that you will be protecting your employees’ health from potential clouds of sanding particles.

The dust produced by our machines is pulled into our dust control systems on the sanding machines. This gives our clients the assurance they need that they won’t face a daunting cleaning task once the dust has settled after we leave.
