Effect of sanding woodwork on already decorated walls?

I have employed decorators to line my walls with fibre liner and to paint walls ceiling and all woodwork in bedrooms. They have papered and painted the walls and ceiling. Woodwork has not been sanded and is of a gloss finish and I would now like a satin finish they are now going to sand the woodwork(I assume) can anybody tell me what effect this will have on my already decorated walls and ceiling as I am sure the woodwork should of been sanded down as part of the preparation work. Thank you.

Yes it should have been sanded and filled already so now they will have to give everything else another coat

Shouldn’t be too much of a problem in my opinion providing they can manage the dust from sanding down woodwork. Power tools like a sanding machine with a dust collector would be really helpful too. This is definitely not the best option as I also think the woodwork should have been done first but can be rectified

Door frames and skirting should be sanded firstly then undercoat then satin then walls if your experienced it shouldn’t matter what way really hope that helped

The correct way to do this is sand all surfaces prior to any painting and clean all dust off the surfaces before painting
