Silica dust can be produced when natural stone, bricks, tiles and concrete are cut, crushed, drilled, ground, sawed or polished.
Silica dust is harmful when it becomes airborne and is inhaled into the lungs, and unfortunately as silica sand is 100 times smaller than a grain of sand and invisible to the human eye, it can be easy to breathe it in without a person knowing it.
Exposure to silica dust can lead to the development of diseases such as lung cancer, chronic bronchitis, acute silicosis, scleroderma and kidney damage, that is why under the model Work Health and Safety Regulations, persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBUs) have a requirement to keep worker and customer exposure to silica dust as low as reasonably practical.
How We Mitigate Dust On All Projects
At All Stripped, we take dust removal seriously. During all of our residential and commercial tile removal projects, our skilled team utilise high powered vacuum systems and attachments to all of our machinery to extract dust and reduce the risk of it flowing throughout your property. We also utilise water misting technology to suppress dust.
Our team also clean up after each job so that you don’t have to. This involves appropriately disposing of all building rubble and bags of dust that have been collected throughout the tile removal process.
