Before all this started just before Christmas and subsequently have been diagnosed with mild COPD, I had started preparing one of the spare rooms for decorating, that involved sanding the walls down (one wall now half sanded, the rest not done).
Clearly things have to change but when I get over this bug or whatever I have, I need to think about getting back to it.
I do need to finish sanding the walls down and then obviously I have to sand the woodwork down before painting. I know about the low odour paints but I want to do everything I can to protect my lungs.
I have been looking at respirators that will protect me from the plaster dust, does anyone know if one that is described as "A respirator with low profile filters to protect against very fine dust particles, fibres and gases. Includes 2 cartridges. Complies with EN140 and EN14387. CE 0086 approved" will be adequate to protect me?
Asking the husband, forget it, chocolate T pot springs to mind, I do everything in the house including finishing tiling the en suite floor and walls and installing a new shower tray cubicle and plumbing, he cant do it so it is down to me.
