dusty paint

We have painted our bedroom. The contractor came in and cut some molding in the room. Now there is dust on the walls. How do I remove it?

Or use a vacumn cleaner. Whatever you use to dust walls just be sure it is clean - you don't want to transfer any dirt to the walls that will require cleaning or repainting.

gagajones, are you saying that the paint was still wet and the the saw dust settled on to the walls and then they dried and left dust bumps (new term?)?

You can't wash the paint for a week after painting
But a swiffer would be fine

If the dust is stuck onto wet paint, and created Barry's "Dust Bumps", then you'll need to sand the wall and re-paint
