What is Dustless Floor Refinishing?

Posted on March 30, 2022 by fivestarwood

When it comes to flooring options, hardwood floors are a firm favorite of American homeowners. In 2020 alone, Americans spent more than 3.42 billion US dollars on hardwood flooring. Those who install hardwood flooring enjoy its numerous advantages, including environmental benefits and value for money.

However, just like everything else, wood flooring has its downsides. During refinishing and sanding, wood floors produce hazardous and harmful wood dust that is carcinogenic.

To minimize the health risks associated with traditional refinishing,  dustless refinishing is recommended so that you can protect yourself from wood dust.

What is Dustless Refinishing?

Professional Wood Floor Finishing companies, such as Five Star Wood, specialize in Dustless Floor Refinishing, which can you give your flooring that fresh feel of raw wood once again.

Dustless Floor Refinishing involves using a hardwood sander, which removes the flaws in your floor finishing and reveals the bare wood flooring. With the use of traditional methods, you would need to cover up items in your home to protect the lungs of the home’s occupants.

Dustless Floor Refinishing eliminates any dangers involved in the refinishing process by using a dust containment system. This process is safer, faster, and cleaner and ensures that you get the desired look as no particles are trapped in the finish on your floor.

 Dustless Refinishing Smoothens The Process

With dustless refinishing, you don’t have to prepare your rooms for the blast of sand that messes up your place when traditional refinishing methods are used. You only need to remove the furniture from the flooring to prepare for the procedure.

You don’t have to spend hours cleaning up the space as any trace of dust is sucked into the bag. The dust containment system uses a bag to collect all the dust, which can be emptied like a  leaf-eater or a bagged lawnmower.

Other Benefits Of Dustless Refinishing

  • You do not need to remove any sensitive pieces of equipment
  • No need to make use of strong chemicals to strip off the dust
  • No need to seal the rest of the house during the process
