I’m. Getting ready to spray a 1000 sq ft apartment.

Plan is to spray it off with a compressor and then brush off the excess with a dry 24” mop.

Is that a good plan?

I open the windows and use a leaf blower, get as much dust as I can out through the windows, let it settle, then a quick wipe with a damp rag.

I generally just use a push broom [minus the handle] to brush off the dust. Some use a vacuum or a swifter duster and while that may do a better job - I've never had any issues using broom and duster brush for the corners.

I’ve done the damp sponge thing in the past. It definitely works but man that’s a lot of work.

Found a wide concrete broom head @ HD. The bristles are fairly soft so I don’t have to worry about scratching the joint compound.

Clarification, I use the leaf blower, let it settle, then my wife wipes it with a damp rag!!!
