Default Dust management.

It just occurred to me that small amounts of dust coming from simple pole sand prepping of the walls could actually get through a homeowner's standard furnace filter, coating the interior of the ductwork and causing a medium for potential friction spots and further dust and who knows what else to accumulate on the inside of the ho's ductwork.

Would this be a mold growth potential? Or simply a duct with surface grit?
I think this falls more on the homeowners "concern", not the painter's. yes?

Dust control, and subsequent dust build up. Sorry to sound like such a moronic rrp type painter.

rrp is lead abatement and containment. You better not have central home ventalation running while sanding lead based surfaces, and the prep would protect from contamination into ventalation anyways.

For normal pole sanding, its dust. Houses are full of dust. Thats why you vacuum and sweep all the time. a painters impact with pole sanding a wall is minimal at best in the grand scheme of things.

Quit over thinking things.

Just shut off the furnace. Love it.

I thought rrp stands for residential re paint.

I don't believe mold would survive the higher temps from furnace heat. I'd be more worried about getting dust on the Baby Grand or Blu Ray.

Besides, there are several options for HVAC system filters along with duct cleaning. But that should be a concern of the homeowner and HVAC tech, and not the painter I would think.

Your on the internet... look up the definition. It sounds logical but has a serious basic flaw. Here is two for starters:


1. Potential friction spots. Ummm...

2. Thinking sanding the walls is giong to create an abnormal amount of dust to get sucked into an air intake. If you are sanding enough to make a ton of dust, contain it. Not rocket science.

do you want me to go on?

Your a painter,paint the fooking room and get paid. Keep it clean and you have a happy customer. Its simple.

yeah, rrp stands for res repaint. Nope it stands for "renovation, repair and painting" It is an EPA policy pertaining to lead.

I am not trying to be a jackwagon. This is not complicated. Why overthink it?

If your really that concerned get a air purifier, I use a Filter Queen on higher end home to help collect the dust, I have Heppa filters and standard Filter Queen filters (which are much better than Heppa but very expensive to use all the time), A good used one on Ebay runs $75-$120, new the cost over a grand.

For major sanding block doorways and vents. We use a Rigid jobsite air filtration rig that does help. Looks professional too

Id say shut of the system until you clean. That is if your close to the intake. Other than that the only time Ive heard of massive dust in the duct work is when the builder is running the system with four guys all sanding at the same time. Any patches shouldn't be an issue. If your sanding that much... you WAY overfilled.

Zip Walls are a great thing too for redrywalling an entire wall in an occupied home.

I think its Sheetrock.. But somebody makes a "dust control" premixed mud. Its nothing amazing but it helps. More of a cleanup saver in a commercial/retail occupied job.
