R. Baker & Son: Dust Suppression and Control

 R. Baker & Son: Dust Suppression and Control

Dust control is an absolute necessity when performing demolition, interior demolition, or selective demolition projects.  Demolition dust can create health and safety risks, contaminate the environment, reduce visibility, and can even create an explosion hazard, and government agencies and municipalities enforce strict controls.  Fortunately, there numerous measures and procedures that can effectively suppress dust and capture airborne particles.  R. Baker & Son complies with all regulations and standards to ensure superior dust control on every project. 

Wetting of surfaces with hoses or sprinklers has been used as a dust suppression practice for many years, thwarting particles from becoming airborne at their source.  There are limitations to this method; once materials have been broken, dry surfaces are exposed, requiring additional suppression measures. Materials can become oversaturated, and standing water can create environmental and safety concerns. Hoses and sprinkler heads must be closely monitored, and water must be properly diverted, drained, or contained.  


Wet misting is a highly effective method for controlling and suppressing demolition dust.  There are two types.  With an electrostatic fog system, miniscule electrostatically-charged water droplets attract and bond with airborne dust particles.  This method cannot be used where wind conditions exist, and thus is generally used for interior selective demolition. Atomized spray dust suppression systems, ideal for open-air demolition, launch small water droplets into the air with a large fan while simultaneously wetting material surfaces. The droplets collide with and capture airborne particles, causing them to fall to the ground. 

Dust barriers should be used during interior demolition to contain airborne particles, particularly in operational facilities where personnel are present.  HEPA air cleaners can be utilized, and special filters can be installed on air handling units.  To prevent particles from contaminating clean areas via clothing and footwear, workers can be required to wear shoe covers and Tyvek suits, and adhesive mats can be placed at work area entrances and exits.  Equipment should be cleaned and decontaminated before being moved through clean areas.  Surfaces should be wiped down, and floors, stairs and wall cavities cleaned and HEPA-vacuumed on a daily basis.
