Dry Wall prep

You are saying to sweep the walls down with a broom or blow them off with compressed air.

Yes. That is about it. You need respiratory protection, because this dust will get everywhere. In my experience, the preferred method is a shop vac, because you don't have to do anything more with the dust after sucking it up.

Paint over it!It want hurt anything.The dry wall men i paint behind can leave more dust on the wall than in the floor.Trust me just paint on.But beware of the bigger dust thats in light recepticles, it doesnt hurt to dust them out before you roll.

I'm gonna add a vote for the shop vac (don't forget the clumps of dust on the tops of the door frames).
