FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why use a Suckabucket dust control device?
Many dry mix materials contain products that can affect human health when inhaled. Even seemingly harmless materials like flour or sugar can create dust that can be harmful with prolonged exposure.
Concrete, mortars, and grouts often contain crystalline silica dust which can cause lung cancer and other respiratory problems.
Suckabucket can dramatically reduce these airborne contaminants and help to keep your work environment cleaner by reducing surface dust on adjacent areas.
OSHA requires that employers take measure to control the dust released from products containing Crystalline Silica.
