The builders i have started tearing down my ceiling and walls whilst i was away on holiday (they thought i would be pleased with the initiative they took to attempt to speed the job up) but now there's plasterdust in all my brand new carpets. they have been using dustsheets but a) not covering all the carpet and b) some of their dust sheets have perforations in
Does anyone know of the best way to get it out - i've been told under no circumstances try to wash the carpet because the plasterdust will stick into the carpet fibres. I was wondering if a vacuum cleaner which filters through water might work better than my Dyson (which is clogged with plasterdust already so the suction isn't great anyway)
it's a good idea rosebery, but they'd give the op a sentence and send the builder to mexico for a month.
Bad workmanship, really the builder should have done better and known better, it happens. Your are never going to keep them spotless, lets face it, it's a messy job, but better precautions should have been made.
