    I know this may be a bit of a stable door after the horse has bolted sort of reply, but a trick my dad showed me for when I am sweeping the floor, was to spray the floor with water. This caused any dry dust to ball up and be 1. More manageable, and 2. Totally not airborne.

    Years ago I worked in a shop where sweeping was preceded by wetting wads of newspaper and strewing them about the floor. As long as you kept the wads in front of the push room there was almost no dust raised.
