The adage about cracking a few eggs to make an omelet rings true to anyone who has ever had to remodel or fix anything. Mess is the inevitable result of almost all types of construction and remodeling, especially when concrete is involved. Check out how BOSCH dust collection solutions help you clean up dust and debris from sanding, cutting and grinding to keep your workplace safe from air hazards (and also to be sure your workplace is OSHA compliant).
Keeping Your Clients Happy
If you’re a licensed contractor, you may promise your customers a full floor-to-ceiling cleanup of the house after you complete the work. Rather than hiring a cleaning crew, use a Bosch concrete dust collection vac, which quickly sucks up debris from sanding, sawing, drilling and refinishing. Keeping an assortment of Bosch dust collection solution attachments on hand can prevent the mess from happening while you’re working. These accessories pull dust immediately into the collection unit to keep the air clean as you drill, saw or sand. Vacuum systems clean as you go so there’s much less mess to clean up after you’re done. So, the next time you’re drilling into drywall, tearing down a wall with a demo hammer or grinding a concrete surface, use tools that plug right into a Bosch dust extractor to save on cleanup time.
Enjoy A Safer Workplace
Good air quality is important for everyone, including you. Even if you fly solo on many of your projects, Bosch dust extractors keep wood shavings and dust away from your face, eyes and hands, helping you focus on the task itself. You can also avoid that massive cloud of microscopic dust that billows up into your face the minute you cut into a concrete wall or foundation. Hooking up your grinder or saw to a suction unit ensures you can enjoy a satisfying workday and a long, healthy career.
Alternative To A Dust Bag
Many older tools may already have a dust bag attachment. Those are reasonably efficient, but without a filtration system, dust can escape. Those micro-particles are the very type you don’t want to breathe in. Instead, attach a hose to the dust port, and your Bosch dust collector vacuum system will suck up all the dust that used to leak back out into the air. If your old saw or sander is still doing the job, there’s no need to replace it. Instead, modernize it with newer accessories, and take advantage of today’s best filtration and dust extraction technology.
Following OSHA Recommendations
Silica is one of the most common particulates found in concrete. The minute you cut into dry concrete, mortar or other types of stone including brick, silica dust can become a health hazard. Silica particles are so light, they float in the air undetected for quite a while and can end up posing long-term health risks. Silicosis is a serious lung disease and one that OSHA would like for you to avoid. According to their materials: “Grinder operators’ silica exposures are among the highest in the construction industry.” Their suggestion: using a vacuum dust collection system with included HEPA filtration and wet grinding (whenever possible) to ensure the greatest level of safety for you and your crew.
Regardless of your trade, everyone wants to see a happy client and a clean worksite. Shop vacs keep inevitable messes and accidents from interfering with your solid referral stream. Check out more about Bosch tools to help your work go more smoothly and efficiently.
