Drywall dust is a known health hazard and a huge nuisance in remodeling and new construction.
Important Safety notice: Be aware that some drywall and plaster compounds used in the 70s and even 80s were made with an asbestos. It is possible that your walls and/or ceilings have asbestos in them, even though asbestos was largely outlawed from use in 1978. This is because contractors and builders were allowed to use asbestos-containing supplies they already had on hand. Sanding or removing a ceiling or wall containing asbestos would release large quantities of airborne dust containing asbestos.
