Rock is hung, taped, etc. It was great - took a week, start to finish, with a couple down days in there. In the process, approximately 876 tons of sheetrock dust was ground into the subfloor (Structurwood Gold OSB).
Naturally, the shopvac is taking hardly any of it up. The loose surface stuff comes off, but the only way I can get the floors to remotely resemble their former state is to take the fittings and extensions off the hose, kneel down and essentially scrub the floor with the nozzle. Otherwise, I'm stuck with a cloudy white film on the floors.
As you might guess, I'm in search of a better way. I'd especially like to keep it water-free on the lower level, since we're fixing to install hardwood shortly. If water was the only way, however, I might give it a shot. So...what do you guys to do clean up dust smeared all over the floor?
