True, but you only need the duster for a couple minutes and go back in the tool box. On a commercial new construction job the only place you need to dust is on top of the door frames. The base doesn't go up till the painters are gone and the carpet goes in. If you want to keep your duster in your pocket the whole time, more power to ya, but you may not even use it till the next job.
