We have said it many times before and we will say it again, there is no such thing as a dust free floor re-finishing work site. There are many things you can do to cut down on the dust but there will always be some dust in the air.One of the biggest and most proactive things you can do to cut down on dust is to use high quality sanding machines. At GJP Floor Sanding London, we only use the best so we know a little something about this topic.
Here is an overview of the machines we use, which are some of the best in the world.
Hummel Floor Sanding Machines
This is German engineering at its best; forget about their sports cars, Germany should be known for their floor sanding machines. Yes, Hummel is a German company that specialises in creating only high quality floor restoration equipment.
Hummel offers a wide range of sanding equipment from belt sanders; drum sanders to edgers and beyond. If you are looking to use a drum sanding machine to handle the bulk of your floor sanding job – and you probably should be as this will make life much easier for you – then you will want to take a look at the Super Hummel.
The Super Hummel has a 300 mm sanding drum and offers an incredible amount of power. It is very easy to change the sand paper, which will definitely increase your efficiency. Best of all the Super Hummel comes with a dust extraction system that is second to none. Your house won’t be entirely dust free but this will go a long way in cutting down on the dust particles in the air.
Bona Sanding Machines
If German engineering isn’t your thing then perhaps you would prefer a little Swedish ingenuity. While they offer a superior drum sander compared to most companies, it is their edgers that stand out. If you need to sand around the edge of your wall then Bona is the way to go.
They have various sizes depending on what you need but all of their edgers come with unprecedented power yet are pretty easy to use. They have easy, comfortable grip handles so you don’t have to worry about slipping and destroying your wall.
Much like Hummel, these Swedish counterparts also have a variety of dust containment units to ensure that your home stays as clean as possible.
Whether you decide to go with Bona, Hummel or an entirely different brand, you will want to make sure you rent a quality machine that has a dust containment system to cut down on the airborne particles.
