The Right Tool Accessories to Eliminate Concrete Dust

Tools to managing concrete dustBeing a professional contractor in today’s industrial world is significantly different than what it used to be even just a few years ago. Safety and technology are driving the new standards in industrial building and demolition.

Keep the Home Fires Burning Where They Should Be – Love-Less Ash Vacs and Fireplace Safety

Lady warm and relaxed by the fireplace.Tis the season! As the temperatures drop and your friendly neighborhood stores start filling their shelves with toys and gigantic blow-up snow globes, there is nothing like sitting in front of a cheery fire on a cold winter evening, snuggled in your favorite blanket, cradling a steaming mug of your favorite hot drink as your car-sized snow globe hums peacefully in the front yard. However, few of us envy the job of cleaning the fireplace the next morning.

Fireplaces and wood stoves are making a comeback, especially with the development of the modern high-efficiency pellet and wood burning stoves. These high-tech stoves use convection and forced air to ensure more efficient burning, resulting in less ash and soot. The problem is that what ash is left is very fine and will readily take flight as you try to scoop it out of your stove and will quickly clog or blow right through most conventional and shop vacuums. read more

New OSHA Rule for Containing Dangerous Silica Dust

Can a good Vacuum Save Your Life?

New OSHA Rule for Containing Dangerous Silica Dust

It starts with shortness of breath after exercising and a harsh, dry cough. As it progresses, you may have more trouble breathing and may even cough up blood. It can lead to congestive heart failure, giving your nails a bluish tint. In advanced stages, it shows itself as chest pain, hoarseness, and loss of appetite.

Silicosis is a serious respiratory disease and serious risk for many in the construction and industrial occupations. Sometimes referred to as Stone Mason’s Disease due to its prevalence for centuries among those who built the great cathedrals of Europe, silicosis is caused by prolonged exposure to silica dust, a common component in concrete, stone, ceramics, and other industrial materials. Silica is one of the most common minerals on earth and products containing it are the core of modern industry. read more

The inner filter CAN be washed with soap and water … please make certain it is completely dry before using. read more

DiscBuddie Customer Feedback

We just received this feedback from a customer who purchased a DiscBuddie dust shroud (part # D1000) for handheld tools. We thought we should share it. Looks like the DiscBuddie is making his work a lot easier.

This is a -WONDERFUL- piece of equipment.

I’m taking a barrier coat off of a 30ft sailboat in FL and, if it weren’t for this shroud, I would have to walk around and clean about a dozen boats at the end of each day. The shroud makes me happy, the yard happy, and all the other boat owners! I’ve only used it for a few hours so far, but the dust collection is superb and makes the job a lot cleaner/easier. Thanks. I told the yard to buy 5 of them and rent them out, don’t know if they’ll follow through or not 🙂 read more

Become EPA certified today!

By using compliant products and procedures, you can reduce your chance of being tacked with a fine from the EPA.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule (EPA RRP) has been in full-force, by penalizing contractors that are not using the proper products and processes required for renovation work. With millions of homes across the country aging, renovation contractors are called on to do projects that require work with lead paint. As a section of the rule states, if a contractor works on any home built pre-1978, you must be trained, certified, and using lead-safe work practices. The fines for not complying with the guidelines can be as high as $37,500 per incident, per day. With this rule in place, many contractors have already contacted the leader in dust control solutions, Dustless Technologies, to get their hands on the full line of certified HEPA vacuums, tools and accessories to help them comply with the regulations when doing renovation, repair and painting. read more
