Dust is a common problem on construction sites and in rural areas where roads usually are not paved. Increased dust in these areas can affect visibility and reduced the safety of operating vehicles or heavy equipment. The smallest dust particles can hang in the air for hours and even days posing a risk for humans and animals to develop respiratory health issues. For these, and many more, dust control is necessary to improve that quality of life for construction crews and those who live in rural areas.
Arnold’s Custom Seeding offers a variety of dust suppression options. An effective and cost-effective approach is to use water. Water is surprisingly effective at holding loose soil particles together. We will make sure that we use only enough water to prevent airborne dust, without creating mud or erosion concerns. There are dust suppression sprays that can be applied that provide more long-term suppression results than water. If your local regulations allow these tackifiers and chloride chemicals, our crews have the experience to effectively apply them to your roadways or construction sites.
Barriers are an effective dust control solution. Arnold’s Custom Seeding will erect structures perpendicular to the prevailing winds at your site to block wind from stirring up dust particles as well as prevent dust from entering certain areas. We can create permanent walls and fences out of wood and concrete, or more temporary barriers from solid boards or hay bales. Safety is a top concern for us, so you can trust us to provide dust control solutions to maintain safe workspaces and roadways.
