If you have a woodworking shop, one thing that you might have noticed is that you are always dealing with a lot of dust. This is a common problem, and it can lead to decreased air quality and other problems. Luckily, you do not have to stop working with wood in order to help prevent this problem. Instead, follow these tips for cutting down on dust in your woodworking shop.
Use Filter Bags
For one thing, if you are not already using filter bags, now is a good time to implement them. Filter bags are often used in factories where air quality can be a problem. They are used to help filter out the air and ensure that it's safe for workers. The good news is that you can purchase them and use them in your woodworking shop as a means of filtering the air and ensuring that it's safe for you and anyone else who might be working in your woodshop. Just make sure that you change your filter bags regularly to ensure that they are able to do their job and that they aren't clogged up with sawdust, dirt, or dust.
It's a good idea to vacuum any woodworking shop on a regular basis. Of course, you can use a broom for a light clean-up while you're working, but as you might already know, sweeping can often cause sawdust to be blown around the shop, and it can be tough to get all of the sawdust, dirt, and dust up with just a broom. Therefore, it's a good idea to keep a heavy-duty vacuum cleaner in your shop that is designed to be used in woodworking shops and garages. These vacuum cleaners are usually tough enough to withstand this tough job and usually have good enough suction that they can help with taking care of sawdust and other debris. Consider investing in a few attachments to go with your vacuum cleaner, so that you can clean off machinery and get into nooks and crannies throughout your shop.
As you can see, there are a few tips that you can follow if you would like to cut down on dust in your woodworking shop. This can help you enjoy better air quality, can help you prevent sawdust from getting on painted surfaces while they're drying and can also help you enjoy a neater, cleaner, and more attractive shop.
