I have a 100 year old garage, with a small workshop attached. The workshop is sealed off from the 2 car garage with a wall and a door. I keep my 4 dawgs in the workshop at night. Because they're in the yard all day, they bring dirt into the workshop, and there's alot of dust on the floor. Dust is over everything, my bike tools, my bikes, my bike photos on the wall. I should clean the place once a month, but due to time and pure laziness, I do it once every two years. The workshop had old boards for a floor, with major cracks between the boards. You could see the dirt underneath, and I thought the dust was coming up through the cracks, not from the dogs' paws. So I spent a considerable amount of time installing a tight-fitting plywood floor. No difference in the outcome! Still very dusty, so I have to conclude it's the dogs paws that are bringing the dirt (which becomes dust) in.
Does anybody know about some kind of filter mechanism I can install in my shop which filters out the dust? (without spending a fortune). I would like my shop to look as clean as a NASCAR Winston Cup team shop.
I can't get rid of the dogs -- they're family. Thanks for your input.
PS: I could put my bikes in the two car garage side, but it's a real pain to get the bikes down from the hooks with the cars in there. Also, there's so much stuff in the garage, there really is no room for the bikes. I have more stuff in my garage than I have in my house. (Don't tell me to get rid of my stuff -- I'm a clutterbug, and never throw anything out).
