FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Managing dust control on your own can be stressful. We’ve heard many questions over the years about managing dust problems. Here are a few questions that you might find helpful.

WHY IS DUST CONTROL IMPORTANT?

Dust is not only a nuisance for enjoying the outdoors, it also negatively impacts your home, and could potentially be bad for your health. Managing dust control yearly is important for keeping your home happy and healthy.

HOW DOES CACL2 WORK IN CONTROLLING DUST?

Calcium chloride is hygroscopic, which means it attracts moisture from the air and surroundings. Therefore, calcium chloride assists in keeping surfaces damp and dust down. Calcium chloride also resists evaporation, which means a single application will last a long time. Tests have proven that 38% LIQUIDOW™ Calcium Chloride out performs other dust control products.

HOW LONG DOES DUST CONTROL LAST?

Depending on environmental impact, calcium chloride dust control should last a year. However, yearly application does contribute to better performance year after year.
