QUESTION: I found your site about drywall and was wondering if you have any advice on how to get rid of all of the dust I have created by knocking down a wall in our home. Unfortunately, I did not put up a plastic sheet to keep the other rooms from getting dusty & now I have sheet rock dust everywhere......oops... I've tried dusting, wet dusting, mopping w/ soap & water, mopping with floor cleaner etc...but the vinyl floors keep drying w/ that dusty dull film...

ANSWER: This is what I would do.
Open windows (if weather permits) and even have a fan blowing out one window to exchange as much of the air as possible. Clean everything again to get rid of dust by damp mopping and sponging..
Run a air filter of some type.  This will filter out remaining dust. Now you know why I don't like sanding too much - that dust is awful!
