Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


Maybe this one would
make a good "Sticky"?
How do we go about that?

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


Can the Harbor Freight poles be used for visqueen on an 8'+ ceiling without a ladder?
I used my Zip walls today for a quick jackhammer job in a business. The customer and I loved them. 10 minute containment!

Well....
never did get the samples,
but I went ahead and bought some
on faith.
Ordered a week ago last Thursday,
got it on Tuesday (free shipping).
Used @4" piece of blue tape on
each side on every tread (clear finished
oak treads), and just loose on the landing,
down the hall, and through the family room.
(All hardwood)
So far so good, lots of traffic from my
partner and I, as well as a couple of subs
checking things out after we opened the walls.
HO said they didn't mind leaving it in place
over night, so it's also surviving traffic from
two teenagers, associated friends, and 2 dogs.
Pulled and rolled it for the weekend and it
was good as new.

Summary:
So far it's a good product...
Lousy sales department!

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


I think we use a lot of dust and floor protection. We use a company called Protective Products. Here are some products and great applications for them. Since we have been using more and more products I hear over and over from referral customers, "susie said you guys are really clean" it goes a long way.

vents for floor registers! HO's love these they work ok.
http://protectiveproducts.com/pro-vent.html

Scratch protection. If the tub is staying! This works great.
http://protectiveproducts.com/scratch.html

Takmat! again a HO favorite that helps.
http://protectiveproducts.com/takmat.html

My favorite. I tape everything with this stuff. windowsills, thresholds, corners of cabinetry. Really good stuff
http://protectiveproducts.com/trim.html

Again, windowsills and thresholds, for all you sub-contractors that feel a need to throw stuff out of windows and run extension cords through my newly installed windows.
http://protectiveproducts.com/flipgard_uc.html

a good sticky idea for sure guys.

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


I have been partitioning and sealing off my work ares for several years now. The HO stuff stays clean and I can get a little bit more money out of it. One other thing I have moved to is tools that all hook to a dedicated dust extractor, talk about healping out the mess situation. I always have drop cloths and visqueen in my truck.

Not sure if they are still available, but, Lee Valley stores had a big shipment of the Rigid Air Cleaners - I think I paid $50.00 (Cdn)

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


I read through this thread, bookmarked several sites thanx. About the ridgid air cleaners though Do they come with a flexable exhaust hose? I've done lead/mold abatement and we use the big air scrubbers. They are big and bulky but we purchased clear long plastic disposable lines for exhaust and thats the way to go. I don't want to recycle the air I want it out the window and gone. But I love the size of the ridgid!

We use the same products from the same supplier. The hardwood protection can be reused many times it is also great for lining metal shelves in your van...
http://www.protectiveproducts.com/

They sell ZIP-Wall in a 4 pack for under $330

I have not seen a flexible exhaust hose for them yet. Where did you buy yours? While the rigid is good for very minor dust it leaves a lot to be desired.

In my search to find a good collection system I found that a lot of guys where using modified furnace blowers with the flexible exhaust hose. This seems like a good fit for us in conjunction with the zip wall.

Thanks

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


That's for me too if its just dust. The abatement inspectors probrably would want a hepa filter in the mix somewhere if it was a mold or lead job. The air scrubber we used was the big square model on the www.abatement page tin cup posted. It is next to impossable to haul it up and down stairs but we got it cheap online. That slick looking blue one would be great that you can stack but I'm guessing it costs a fortune.
