Any suggestions on how to keep the dust down when working in rooms that are otherwise clean and tidy? I've had to do some minor DIY (chasing in a cable, filling and sanding) in a living room. The room is generally clean and recently decorated but is full of furniture/books/clutter etc. Cutting holes in walls (even single socket-sized holes) generates vast amounts of very fine dust that seems to get everywhere. I've experimented with dust shields around my tools which I can connect directly to a vacuum cleaner, this is great and will suck up 90% of the dust before it even gets into the room. The problem seems to be that the dust is incredibly fine - much smaller than normal domestic dust. The filters on my bag- less vacuum cleaner get clogged within minutes, or if I use my old 'bagged' vacuum then the dust seems to flow straight through. Is there a better solution? I don't really want to spend half a day emptying the room of everything before starting work, but the only alternative seems to be to spend hours afterwards individually cleaning everything in the room once the work is finished. The basic problem is that the job takes 30 minutes, but cleaning up afterwards takes half a day!
