What can I do about all this chalky drywall residue?

After You're Done Hanging Drywall

If you've never hung drywall before, you won't realize until you're in the middle of the project that part of your drywall equipment should include something to clean up the mess. It's a dirty business, and clearing up the debris is only part of the problem; there's that white chalky residue to deal with, too. A good wet/dry vacuum is just what you need to eliminate the white stuff. If you have a really large job to clean up after, you'll need extra bags and exhaust filters for the vacuum. Finding the vacuum and related products is easy, just do a Google search on the phrase "drywall vacuum" and you will come right to what you need to control the post-project mess.
