Who we are
We had always been interested in the broader choice of timber flooring options. Over 750 floors a year taught us a lot about how to do it, do it better, and time to work out there had to be a healthier way to create beautiful timber floors for our clients. Australian Dustless Floorsanding was determined to modify the trade so it didn’t have such an horrendous effect on staff, clients, furniture and products as well as the environment. In the past, floor sanding fumes and dust also impacted on neighbours and adjoining businesses – but no more.
With his own shed full of power tools since he was 10 – Darren’s love of timber is interrupted only by Taekwondo (He’s a 3rd Dan Blackbelt), and fishing. Darren also enjoys 4WDing trips suspiciously planned around fishing opportunities, down hill mountain bike adventures and until recently, his love of music (being a cornet & trumpet player since the age of 7). Catch and release fishing appeals to Darren and we occasionally get to enjoy some Tuna from the regular Portland Fisho Fests.
Lisa comes from a Management and Admin background along with Early Childhood Education focused employment and volunteering for specialised children’s groups. Busy with family, Project Management, the Emerald Emergency Support Team, she has little time to ponder the lack of results from all these fishing trips.
Our fantastic head sander Steve has been working with the company for decades having started his training as a very young lad straight from high school. David joined us a few years back and firmly established the third team – his singing on site has to be heard to be believed. James has settled in to become our go to sander and installation assistant and proudly emulates Dave’s singing skills. Connor is our newest sandinding trainee & team member and is doing well keeping up with the gun Sanders. Apart from loving work – they enjoy time with their partners and gorgeous little Poppets, 4WDing, darts, or occasionally fishing with the boss.
Australian Dustless Floorsanding is very pleased to have Julie as our long serving Bookkeeper and Office Admin support. Julie is not a fan of fishing. Kirsty is our fabulous Office support & Admin Assistant and champion random task solver.
