The folks at YellowBrickHome.com have been great customers and been generous in sharing both praise for our company and products, as well as pictures of their projects. They recently shared a clever installation tip with their readers that is applicable for many of our customers installing curtain track and drapery hardware where holes are being drilled into drywall or sheetrock. By placing the nozzle of a running vacuum cleaner below the bit while drilling, you can avoid having to sweep up the chalk dust that is generated . The vacuum will catch the dust before it makes a mess.
They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and this is good supporting evidence.
