 Eliminating dust from crushed limestone

I have a building that I store my tractors and lawn mowers in. It has a floor that covered with crushed limestone. All of my equipment is covered with rock dust that comes from the floor. Does any one have any ideas of something I can put on the limestone to eliminate the dust? I don't want to cover it just spray or pour something on it.

Calcium chloride has been used on roads recently as dust control, ( ever since the PCB disasters ). Spraying a coating of Calcium Chloride solution on your floor should resolve the problem.

It sounds like a good idea. I am not sure if I would want calcium or salt on the floor in my shed because of corossion issues.

I think I would lean toward a very light oil mixture (oil and kero blend) spray on with a garden sprayer very light and retreat areas that get scuffed. Or try a Janitor supply house and get the stuff they use on tile before pushing a big dust mop up and down the floor.

You might even be able to dilute a asphalt emlusion blend enought to geta very light coating.

I've personally never tried it, but I have heard of people using the spray emulsion normally used to seal asphalt.

You may want to experiment with it.

Best of luck.

I know you said you dont want to cover it, but I would get myself a load of pea gravel and spread over the top. Dont think I would want to put anything down that may jepardize pouring concrete in the future with out removing the limestone along with what ever mess may come with it. In any case, do what has been suggested , (experiment with a smaller portion first) Being in a trade for many years there is one thing I have learned when working on alot of different things. Test your first few attempts or parts before comitting yourself.
Goodluck
PS The pea gravel was a guess and did not come from practical experiance!
