Last year i moved into a new house. One of the rooms had a textured finish on two of the walls. The owner said she had mixed silica sand into the paint. Here's the stupid part - whilst redecorating it, I sanded it smooth so I could repaint it.
1. The room was thick with a haze of dust
2. I was in there for two evenings sanding in this haze of paint and silica- no more than 6-8 hours in total. Maybe 5.
3. I can't rememmber if I wore a mask, but if I did, it was a cheap one from the DIY store that didn't fit.
What is my risk of developing silicosis? I see there are three kinds, with one being caused by a one-off exposure to a large volume - is my exposure classed as large/heavy?
please help me!
