Once upon a time, the decorating world was dominated by ghostly looking apparitions…decorators covered in white filler dust!
Every home would need a proper vacuum cleaning session once the decorators had finished, the cloud of dust would travel to every room, not just the one being decorated!
Easyfill, Tetrion, Polyfilla, Toupret…it didn’t matter what filler was used, the fallout remained the same.
What about wet & dry? Well, that’s good on a nice door or piece of furniture but on a ceiling? Not a chance. What about zip up door covers? Excellent! But as soon as you step through the door into another room, the dust on you is coming with!
The wonderful (but now quite old fashioned) pole sander seemed like the tool of the year but the ability to cover us all in dust to breathe in was increased massively.
And that’s something we never really talked about at the time.
What were we breathing in?
Not just filler dust but in most cases old paint, maybe mould from the surface, dirt, atmospheric pollution…
Health scare anyone?
So, what to do…?
Enter the dustless sanding revolution!
Once upon a time, many of us had the great idea of hooking our electric sander extractor hose up to faithful old Henry! That reduced the dust cloud enormously and also, as an added bonus it reduced the time taken later on hoovering and dusting down.
But, it wasn’t totally dust proof.
So the stage was set for the big boys to come and play.
Sanders and extractors such as Mirka’s DEROS (direct electric random orbital sander) coupled to the extractors 1230L (domestic approved) or 1230M (Industrial Site Approved)
Auto filter cleaning (AFC) for the 225mm sander Leros
(Long Electric Random Orbital Sander) adds the convenience of a pole sander and a filter that cleans itself saving valuable time.
So, not only are your customers delighted with a clean and dust free environment while having the place decorated, you save hours a week in cleaning up time and the most important benefit, that to your health, add up to the ultimate industry no brainier!
The investment you make now will pay you back until you retire…and long after too!
So you’ll be much further away from being that ghost!
