Ask An Expert: Fixing Concrete Puddling

This week we discuss how to fix puddling from improper concrete laying or settling.

Q: I laid a concrete slab in my backyard last year for a one-sided basketball court for the kids.  After it rains there is a lot of sitting water in the middle of the pad.  It’s not that big so I’d rather not tear it out.  How do I repair it? – Tim Reese

A: Thank you for your question Tim!  This is a pretty common issue to have, as there are a lot of physical factors at play when laying concrete.  Much of it depends on what caused the uneven concrete in the first place.  The first step is to determine what is causing the sitting water. read more

Vacuum Strength: CFM and Water Lift

One of the most frequent questions people ask about vacuums is “how do you know how strong a vacuum is?”  A vacuum’s ‘strength’ has two parts to it: CFM and Water Lift

CFM Is Air Flow

Air flow is the volume of air moved through the vacuum.  It is measured in vacuum specifications as CFM, or cubic feet per minute.  The more air flow through a vacuum, the better.  A common air flow measurement is 125 CFM.  A very thorough guide to air flow, as well as how it is measured in different vacuums, can be found here. read more

For The Dealer: Mountain West Rep Update

As a business owner, general manager, or store employee, you understand “supply-and-demand”.  A good line of communication is imperative between your vendors, your employees, and your patrons.  When the chain of communication is disrupted, all sorts of problems pop up; however, when proper support is given to you and your business, your customers are taken care of.  That’s what a rep is for.

What Is A “Rep”?

The term ‘rep’ stands for ‘Manufacturers Representative’.  They are typically a group of people assigned by the manufacturer to provide support to dealers in a certain region. read more

Ask An Expert: Is Drywall Dust Toxic?

This Week We Discuss a Question Regarding The Toxicity of Drywall Dust

Q: I do drywall for a living as I get contracted out to fix peoples walls, fix up buildings, help in building renovation, sanding joint compounds, you get the idea.  I have worked with drywall every day for nearly 15 years as a tradesman.  Of course it is messy and I’m often covered in drywall after a long days work.  I want to know is the drywall dust toxic?  When I grew up people didn’t care so much about their health but I’m starting to feel the effects of working a hands on job. I want to know if I should be taking precautions when doing my job.  Thanks.  – H read more

Employee Spotlight: Kendall Hansen, From Student to Engineer

It’s another crisp morning in the sleepy town in Price, Utah.  Kendall Hansen walks into the Research and Development department at Dustless Technologies.  Typically, he starts his day out with a cup of coffee and occasionally picks up a prototype off the 3D printer.

Kendall often pops in his earbuds and turns on some music – something that helps him with his design work.  An iconic bamboo plant sits atop his desk while he types and clicks.  When he’s not on the job he enjoys writing and playing music (he even 3D printed his own electric guitar), going on adventures, enjoying the great outdoors, and spending time with his wife, Candace. read more

The Only HEPA Vacuum That Is Wet+Dry

A Wet Basement Renovation

“There’s water in the downstairs!”, a lifeguard yelled as he ran up the wet stairs from the pool basement.

A gasket was leaking and the basement sump pump was out.  Before extensive flooding occurred, we were able to get our systems back online.

The moist basement evolved into a perfect environment for grime, moss, and mold.  As a determined manager, I rallied my lifeguards one Saturday and marched down into the depths.  We set out to scrub out the basement and restore it to its former state, armed with various detergents, chlorine, brushes, pressure washer, and an old shop vacuum.  The renovating proved to be the easy part – cleaning up was another story.  I worked with the vacuum for hours.  I removed the filter to suck up water and continually adjusted switches to be able to remove the water and debris from the basement.  My team and I spent the majority of the day cleaning. read more

Safely Dealing With Brick Renovation

Dustless CutBuddie

Throughout history, people have used every imaginable substance to build structures.  From straw and tin to steel and concrete, they vary in density, availability, and longevity.  Among the most common and high performing is brick.

Construction in Colonial America made brick a centerpiece of construction on the East Coast.  That trend moved west in the 19th century and continues today as contractors often pair stucco, siding, and brick for modern home exteriors.  Chances are, if you’re a homeowner or renovator, you have had to deal with brick – and you know how difficult brick can be to get through. read more

Pellet Stove Vacuums: Keep the Fire in the Stove

When we introduced our first ash vacuum 30 years ago, we prioritized convenience, effectiveness, and safety. Today we are still producing the safest and most reliable fireplace and pellet stove vacuum on the market.  The Cougar, with its industry-leading 10-year limited warranty, is universally rated one of the best ash vacuums you can buy.

Today, wood burning fireplaces and stoves aren’t as common as they once were. Pellet and other high-efficiency stoves are taking the place of those less efficient sources of heat and ambiance.  These produce much finer ash than vintage fireplaces.  As a result, more people are turning to quality ash vacuums to clean this light, hard-to-collect ash. There are many cheap options on the market today. However, with potentially hot ash and unburned pellets, the safety of your home and your loved ones should be the top priority. read more

Rethinking Construction – HEPA Backpack Vacuum

Backpack Vacuum Cleanup

Most people don’t think backpack vacuum when they think about ways to improve their construction company. Instead they look for things like faster job completion, better clean-up, and improved employee retention. Whereas a backpack vacuum might not be your first thought in construction, if it’s not, it should be. There’s a new standard in the construction industry and a backpack vacuum is one tool you can’t overlook if you want to improve your company’s bottom line.

Leveraging Technology for Your Business

From smartphones to smart cars, technology is changing the way we do just about everything.  We’ve had to rethink the way we interact with our peers, process information, travel, buy and sell goods, and now it’s time to rethink the way we do construction.  As a contractor or subcontractor, things have changed. The industry isn’t what it used to be. The good news is there is more opportunity than ever before. But the down side is that those who fail to see the need to rethink their approach will cease to exist as a viable company. Successful companies use technology to grow and thrive. This seems evident in high tech industries, but is just as important and relevant for the construction industry. The main difference is the technology is not simply a software solution. To grow and thrive in the construction industry you need to constantly search for better methods and the tools to get you there. read more
