"Matt, Just a short note to let you know that I am totally thrilled with my floors. Mr. Sandless is a wonderful company. I was skeptical in the beginning because I thought the only process to refinish my wood floors was sanding and waiting days until the polyurethane dried. Now, I’m sorry I waited so long. For the last week I have been singing the praise of Mr. Sandless to all my neighbors and friends. My entire house (LR, DR, 3 BR, 1 hall & 2 staircases were finished in less than 10 hours (which included rug removal and furniture moving). I was able to immediately walk all over the house with no restrictions. There was no horrible odor either. Because your system is environmentally safe, I was not worried about my animals being exposed to anything toxic after your crew left. You guys made me a believer. Your staff is wonderful. Good luck to you in the future – may your business prosper and multiply."
"Hi Matt, The job came out great! Please feel free to use me as a reference. Thanks again."

Clearing the dust with a floor-sanding alternative,
Matt Gardiner, owner of Mr. Sandless, runs an eco-friendly floor refinishing business and drives a fuel-efficient Smart car. GRANT CITY -- When Matt Gardiner visited the Philadelphia headquarters of Mr. Sandless in 2006, he was floored. The Grant City resident was so impressed by company's state-of-the-art wood floor refinishing process, he became the sixth in a growing list of franchisees, which now numbers 84. At the time, Matt was seeking to replace his former Wall Street career as a head trader on the NASDAQ Stock Market with a venture of his own on Staten Island. Today, Matt's home-based Mr. Sandless operation is an established enterprise offering customers an alternative to the most common method of wood-floor refinishing, which requires sanding and often-multiple polyurethane applications. According to the Mr. Sandless Web site, the company achieves results with "no sanding, no mess, no fuss." Sanding a floor and applying a coat or more of polyurethane finish "can take days on end and can be very toxic," Matt said. "We're greener, we're faster," he added. "We can normally have service done within four to six hours." The company uses a non-toxic chemical that penetrates the top surface of the wood, according to the site. This is in contrast to polyurethane treatments, which could take 19 hours to dry and often require people to leave their homes during the lengthy application and drying process, said the 42-year old entrepreneur. Most people "love the end result" of the service he provides, said Matt, whose franchise territory includes all of Staten Island and parts of Brooklyn.
