Cleaning up rock dust


New member

Our pool is nearing completion and we are trying to start cleaning up all the rock dust from the stone masons— it is EVERYWHERE. Our patio floor, patio screens, windows, window screens, decking, furniture, etc. The problem is that the dust is so fine, that when you sweep it, it goes airborne and just relocates itself. We have swept well several times, washed everything down with water and soap, swept the screens, washed the screens w water and soap, and every time everything dries, the dust is still there (or is there again). Anyone have success finally getting everything clean and dust-free after construction?? Thanks in advance.

Start from the top to bottom. It will take several times of cleaning to get it all clear I am sorry to say. That stuff is a mess! Just when you think you got it all the wind will blow some down from your roof or out any plants around your area :roll:
