Dust less sanding
Where possible any sanding preparation will be done with a dust extraction system that will reduce air born dust significantly so your home is not left covered in dust and for anyone with breathing difficulties this method can be ideal for use in your home.

I tend therefore to recommend water-based paint finishes for woodwork and trim. Besides being more eco-friendly and virtually odourless they also retain their colour longer and are quick drying.
