Hi Guys,(its been a while)
I have to rub down part of the ceiling in the kitchen where I filled in a long small crack and don't want the whole kitchen to fill with dust, does anyone have any tips to reduce the amount of dust from sanding down at all please. :help:

Use dust sheets and a small spray bottle filled with water. Spray it in the air every few minutes and that should stop most of the dust from sitting in the air. That should minimise the mess but won't stop it.

If you have a spare set of hands they can hold a hoover wand over where you're sanding.

If money is no object, for this and future mess free sanding buy a Mirka sander

This would be about the cheapest dust sheet you can get https://www.toolstation.com/shop/Painti ... eet/p46541

An alternative might be to rake it all out, then fill again in stages, using a surface filler with a wide scraper or blade to apply it - this should leave you with a surface that needs little or no sanding..

Sander in one hand hoover nozzle in the other works. You may have to lift your vacuum up on a workmate to get the reach.

Thanks for the tips guys, put a dust sheet down in the end but a bit messy still, but all done now (ish)
will post pics tonight when I get home as I am not 100% happy with the finish even though I raked out the crack a bit so to make sure I got enough filler in there and did use a extra wide filler knife it still seems a bit "unpleasant" on the eye and its the first thing I notice when I walk into the kitchen and look up at the ceiling. So might re-do the repair again. :wink:
