I tell people that it`s the compromise - dust free or lower heating bill. I don`t have any form of sock on it to collect the dust blown outside though. That`s a nice option to have.

Mine was used, it`s loud and cost me about 5 bills for one 25`hose and the blower. I wouldnt mind getting a second hose.

do you have any pics?

Get a filter sock for a dust extractor. The ones you use in the shop kind. Then use big cable tie to attach it to the hose. Its a easy way to get a exhaust filter.

Extension pole (8' -16') + rectangle paint pad + 3mil plastic = ZIP wall

Velcro strip on paint pad edges, velcro tabs for plastic = easy up

MUCH less money...

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling



I use third hand tools with plastic to create a dust barrieras well as a way to separate my work space from the customers living area. Ialso use zipper doors to get in and out of the plastic walls I erect. I alsofabricated a metal 20 x 20 air intake that has 20 x 20 air filters. Combinethis with a portable exhaust fan I created a work area air cleaner and it alsoprevents dust from entering my customers living spaces by creating a negativepressure within my work area.http://www.herboth-remodeling.com/Be..._Grace_Ln.html

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


Another Dust Free renovation here in Vancouver. We love using this large fan and on this job to much air was blowing in off Vancouver's False Creek. To get the right negative pressure we used some 6mil vapour barrier and some tape to slow the migration of air in from outside.

This worked very well. Our client had a diner party that night like he did a few years back when we reno'd the other bathroom. You know your onto a good system when your clients are not afraid of entertaining durning the demolition process of a bathroom remodel.

John i expected better from you lol thats even worse than my old system


Here's mine setup today doing some spraying. I have it on a remote system so I can shut it on and of from inside work area.

John also dont forget to open enough other windows or doors to let air in from outside. I have blown my pilot light out on my furnace a few times and when the water heater is running CO2 levels increase and trigger my carbon monoxide alarms as its pulling in air back through the flue so exhaust being sucked back through to living areas.

Hey it works great. This system might not be as fancy as yours but it does the job. I have seen better rigs like yours available at the rental stores but find the hoses stink. Stink as in smell bad not that they don't function well.

My fan is easily cleaned and works amazingly well.

The key is in the prep with the plastic walls and zip poles. We use the plastic walls to measure our success. If the plastic sucks in we are golden. If not we redesign the rig.

Hey Kev it's made by allegro. The reason I went for this model was its reversible so it can blow as well as suck. It ain't cheap but the motor is def much better quality than other models I gave seen and it's fully sealed so no dust can get to brushes.


John ain't noticed any smell from the unit. It's mainly designed for supplying air in man holes or extracting air in man holes so prob why it don't smell. The hose is much better quality than the type you would see as most tool stores. They look similar but up close the material is a laminated rip stop kind of material and pretty tuff.

$617 with 25ft of duct. They do a 15ft duct option but it's only $60 cheaper

They also do a 8" which is quite a bit cheaper but its almost 3x less cfm.

That's not a bad price. I paid close to that for a used unit at a rental store. 3500 cfm, but the hose is pretty beat up. Sucking only - if I blow with it half the dust escapes the hose

As far as carpet dust concern the focus is on maintaining carpet dust free through dust sucker machine rather than change it.

Re: Dust-Free Remodeling


Other than using box fans and taping off the work area, the best way to minimize dust in my opinion is to moisten the are. When dust starts to rise you can spray a very fine mist from a hose or other water delivery device. This will clear the dust fast, but may make your work area a little slippery. For cleanup, we use a wet rag to mop up and wipe up dust. If you start sweeping and vacuuming it up, it will just spread throughout the air more. Don't forget to wear a mask though, the dust is terrible for your sinuses.
