I spent the day with my son in law & grandson removing tile from a bathroom.
It was very dusty in the room and I asked him if that was dangerous and he told me it was okay.

Now I have been reading about the crystaline sillica stuff that you can die from.

Now I am worried that we did a Do It Yourself project that was dangerous.

Joking lol. It was only one day. I wouldn't worry about it.

Get an N-95 mask. I'd go to Lowes or Home Depot and see if they have them. They are very high quality. I bought a box during that Avian bird flu scare and now I use them when I'm around any chemicals. They really do keep the bad stuff out.
