:254 HEPA-Less Dust Control

Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home and planet environment.

1:5:10:254 EcoTip: If you don’t have a HEPA vacuum cleaner – as an alternative – you can still control fine dust indoors by setting your vacuum cleaner outside and bringing only the hose inside. This technique can be very effective when you are using the vacuum for remodeling or trying to remove fine dust – provided the hose is long enough and the vacuum has enough suction. The dust that escapes from the vacuum cleaner will be exhausted outside. Make sure that wind and air currents aren’t blowing it right back in.
