Default House Clearing

Morning folks,

I've been roped into a bit of a house clearance before some work can get started on a property. Worried about kicking up dust and the like and I'm keen on some mask protection. Does anyone have any brands they favour for this kind of thing? Thought a multi-pack similar to these would be ideal and worth the investment for the work - https://www.arco.co.uk/product?produ...600&OID=690999

Thanks,
Chris

I've always had the best luck with a real respirator.

I have a 3M and use the asbestos filters for everything.

You only get one set of lungs, why use a crappy non-filtered mask?

I have a MSA mask with forced air. Filters and blowers are belt mounted with full face shield/mask

Something like this
https://us.msasafety.com/Air-Purifyi...00003000001650

I love it no fog or dust in eyes, nose or mouth.

You use that for everything?

Seems like overkill but if it's comfortable I'm all for it.

Yes It is great. NO fogging, no pressure trying too breath, dust don't matter and I find it cooler then a standard face respirator. Think of the difference like snorkeling and scuba diving, they both let you see underwater but give me Scuba any day.

I bought it after the fire and had to sand the whole house with an angle grinder and 24 grit. Dig into the charred timber and send out a black cloud and just keep going. I use it for my woodworking also, no sawdust in eyes or nose

I've been a diver for years and like a full face mask but haven't used one for dust.

Jesus would never approve of a gun. Except maybe a nail gun.

We should have a sign that says “Pros and fornicators only.”
