We just did some construction work in the backyard, which left some paint and dust (from cutting of tile etc) on the grass and brick patio. Wonder what is the best way to have those cleaned. especially the grass area, how to get rid off the dust which might be harmful for the baby.. Thanks a lot!

You can simply sweep up as much of the dust as you can, then hose off or power wash the patio. Whatever dust is left will be carried to the soil of the nearby grass or flower beds. Once it dries you can scape it off the soil surface of your flower beds. To reduce the debris on the lawn, mow it, being sure to use a bag. This will vacuum up most of the dust and debris. Then water your lawn well enough to rinse any remaining dust down to the surface of the soil. Best wishes with your project.
