The tools of the trade

The difference is, our floor sanders have hook up capability to powerful vacuums.
Our promise to you, the customer
It has become standard practice by National Floors to use dustless technologies on each sand and finish project. National floors practices the use of dustless sanding from the very beginning to the completion of all hardwood flooring projects.
By using a D.C.S. (Dust Control System) we are able to create a dustless sanding process that removes dust at the source.· These vacuums are powerful and even a triple hepa/filter to contain over 99% of the dust particulates from entering your home. Even though we can use the D.C.S inside, we feel keeping the unit outside is the best method of practice for safe keeping your home. With this method, the moment the dust is created, it is sucked up into our powerful vacuum system and leaves the home without return.· You can see for yourself with video to the right.· There is no debating it’s effectiveness and that is why National floors not only promotes, but is a strong advocate of dust control systems when sanding hardwood floors.·· A true Dustless sanding system.··

Question recently posted: Is a truck mounted vacuum stronger than a portable?
·Great question.· Side by side, yes.· Unfortunately, you have to leave your trailer unit in the street since it is not mobile.· The point is, for about every 50 feet of hose you attach, you lose significant c.f.m. (suction).· On average, a truck mount can use anywhere between 300-500 feet of hose.· Not good for the customer.· That is why we use a huge portable D.C.S.· Even with slightly lesser cfm, we loose zero suction since we don't have to stretch out hundreds of feet of hose and sacrifice c.f.m. in the process. Reality, if we thought a truck mount system was better, we would own a couple of them.
