Dust is everywhere all the time. But during a remodeling project it’s particularly abundant — and potentially hazardous. All sorts of nasty stuff gets kicked up while demolishing walls taking apart cabinets and removing tile.
Hiretech Deck and Floor Sander Finishing Pad 4-1/2 in. x 15-3
Rented Hiretech HTF-2 sander from HD and purchased 3 finishing pads and 15 sheets of sandpaper. Could barely get a few minutes before the sandpaper fell off because dust would get in between paper and pad which made the adhesive side of sandpaper absolutely useless.

Dust coming off the tile could also irritate your eyes or lungs so you should put on a face mask and safety glasses too. Step 2 – Smooth the Edges by Hand.
