Lime is the glue that holds the sand and stone together; it is also highly toxic to human tissue. The airborne nature of the fine particulate makes it easy to inhale the lime dust, a health hazard for anyone living inside the house. It irritates the eyes and inflames sinuses; contact should be limited. American Dry takes significant steps to avoid this problem.
A negative air machine is set up in the middle of the basement. It pulls a significant amount of air from everywhere through a large HEPA filter. The air through the filter is completely clean, but we still vent it to the outside. We vent outside to minimize any air movement within the basement. This solution is extremely efficient and creates an incredibly clean installation.
