I just had my home sandblasted as part of the stucco prep for painting. I came home and there is sand everywhere! What would be a normal amount of residual sand left from the blasting? There is over 4-5 inches in all of my flowerbeds and in my grass. I know that silica dust is very harmful, and now I have concerns about dry-sweeping or blowing w/air compressor. Doesn't the sandblasting company normally remove most of the sand? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
It sounds like a normal amount of sand. What will happen with it should be spelled out in your contract with the painters/sandblasters. Silica is one of the most common elements on the planet, certain forms can be dangerous, most are benign. I would be much more concerned about the paint that was removed.
What lead you to this form of paint removal? It is very rare around here.
