Will there be a mess all over my house? This is a question we are asked sometimes while performing the estimate from the homeowner.
We have all had the project around the home that turns into a disaster. Contractors working all over the home, dust flying thru the air and covering every square inch of the house. Often making it into areas that are not even close and behind closed doors to were the construction project is happening.
Dust is going to happen BUT we can greatly reduce the dust to a minimum.
How? We have invested in the latest technology in extraction units (vacuums) that utilizes the HEPA technology to reduce the dust and dust particles.
As described by Festool:
What is HEPA filtration?
High Efficiency Particulate Air, or HEPA, was first designed to prevent the spread of radioactive particles via the air in the 1940s during the development of the first nuclear weapons. HEPA represents very high standards by which air filtration is measured and the most sophisticated, modern, and high-tech vacuum systems employ filters based on this standard.
What size particles does HEPA filter?
According to specifications in the United States, a filter must trap at least 99.97% of all particles that are 0.3 microns or larger in diameter. The filter must always retain a high level of airflow as not to reduce suction.
So… how big is a micron?
In the simplest terms, microscopic. In technical terms, it’s one millionth of a meter. Here are the sizes of some common objects for comparison.
Red blood cells are 8 microns in size.
The human eye can only see objects larger than 30 microns.
A human hair is about 100 microns.
The eye of a needle is about 1,200 microns.
