but at work because of the hours, they strip and wax the floor while I'm there a few times a year(say 5) and it takes them 3-4 days. as they have to work around us.. anyways.. when they do this I can't just call in..
what I'm looking for is a charcoal or other(???) mask that remove most of the fumes before they get to my lungs..
got back from vac to them in the middle of the job and been couching up crap since including blood..
I have a 3m mask from a hardware store.. the straps are plastic and I can't see it being all that comfortable when on for 8 hours..
looking for something that will be comfortable enough.. that I'll be more likely to keep on.. and maybe not as bulky as the monster I have..
If your couching blood, you need medical help and now.
Also, F the comfortable BS, chances are your respirator from ACE is for sanding plaster, wood or painting latex's.
Go to an automotive paint store and look at the 3M, Gerson or SAS, double charcoal ones, these are made for the nasty solvents.
