Is exposed brick and plaster dust a health risk?

Postby Tiggi » Fri Mar 05, 2021 7:08 pm

A doorway was put into my bedroom for an en-suite. The plaster was cut back and brickwork is still exposed as it has not been re-plastered.
Could any harmful dust be breathed in from this. The doorway is currently behind the bed. The en-suite is unlikely to be finished for at least another year or two.

Hi tiggi
There should not be any problems but suggest you paint the exposed bricks and mortar with watered down PVA adhesive/sealer.
