I do the following as precautions:
-Blow off the surface
-Tack it if I see any specks or lint
-Have the spray fan running (not a down draft but a plenum pulling air past the piece and out of the building)
-Wear a Kimberly Clark suit
-Sweep out the old overspray before shooting

What I don't do (maybe my problems):
-I don't remove every last speck of the previous overspray in my booth
-I don't filter the air coming into the booth
-I don't spray the place down with water before spraying
-I don't ground the workpiece or spray gun
-I don't use any anti-static preventative measures

Those are some extra measures I found when searching. Not sure how important those would be.
