Drilling Drywall

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I know that drywall and plaster can have gluten in it...does anyone else here worry about drilling into it for hanging stuff? What precautions should we take? How will we know where tiny bits of wall may fly? lol Maybe I'm being over paranoid? Thoughts? lol

Wear a mask if it bugs ya :3

Honestly, in my experience (had to redo a whole trailer at one point with lots of drywall), it doesn't really fly, it just sort of drops to the ground.

Now, if you were sanding or something i'd suggest wearing something more.

If you are just making a couple of holes, you could cover them with painter's tape. Drill thru the tape. Most of the mess will go back into the wall or stick on the tape. Might be extra to drop straight down. But no flying.

I now have a funny image of little, plump, oval, light brown glutens with fly wings.

I wouldn't worry about drilling a picture into the wall, but if you are doing some major work I would either delegate it to someone else, or I would wear a mask.
