FAQs about Vacuums
Is it better to dust or vacuum first?
- After a small or large commercial project, there might be dust lingering after the project is done. Dusting will stir up the particles rather than removing them. It’s best to vacuum as much of the loose dust as you can, starting at the top of the space and working your way down toward the floor. Make sure to vacuum window ledges, ceiling fans and light fixtures. After this, you can go over the room with a damp cloth or mop top to get the remaining debris and dust. Don’t forget to vacuum out the ductwork, as dust can lodge in there.
What is the best vacuum for concrete floors?
- Choose the best vacuum by your cleaning needs. A few things to consider: concrete floor type (sealed, stamped, etc.), level of debris and dust you need to clean, how often you want to clean the area, and what your budget is. If you are still unsure, please contact your local United Rentals for expert advice on choosing the best vacuum for you.
Can you use a standard vacuum for concrete dust extraction?
- We recommend that you use a heavier-duty vacuum with proper filtration for concrete dust, as well as a more powerful suction force and airflow and cleaning system on board. OSHA requires proper ventilation and limits the amount of dusts, fumes, mists, vapors, and gases produced in construction work, so having a proper vacuum that is able to handle concrete dust extraction is essential.
