Hi, my name is Chris Palmer. Today, we're going to talk about how to choose and use dust mask. This little guy is a great thing to have around; so, when you start doing some sanding or demo or anything dusty, you can just grab it and put it on. Really worth your while to use it. You don't want to be breathing in particulates. This particular model is a really good one; I recommend going with this, it's got the two elastic bands that keeps it nice and securely tight against your face. It's got this little metal strap that you can bend over the bridge of your nose and it's got a little ventilator that it, but it's a check valve. So, it roll, pull air in but it'll let you ventilate your breath so you don't steam up your mask as much. It's a lot more comfortable to wear. It's not that much more money than the really other basic model and it's worth just a little bit more money to, to get this nicer model. You know, those, those dust masks with one rubber band, don't ever bother. To put it on, all you do is stretch this over your head and then, squeeze the metal strap down over the bridge of your nose. Now, you're ready to go to work.
