With properly diluted paint and correct spraying procedure, the amount of actual Paint Dust that goes beyond the area of the Screen is minimal. Leastwise as compared to conventional Spray Guns.
Also, the much reduced time the Electric HVLP Guns are in operation tends to greatly reduce the degree of Dust present (40-sec to 1 min. avg.)
However, there will be / is some degree of over-spray / bounce, so it's advisable to spend $6.00-8.00 on some 0.7 mil 9' x 12' sheets of Plastic ($8.00 gets you 6 sheets) and use them to drape whatever areas you want to totally protect.
I myself will go so far as to create a "Paint Tent Booth" using Thumb Tacks and Blue Tape, encapsulating the screen area from Ceiling.Walls, and Floor.
It's all pretty simple and easy....a case of common sense really.
And of course, it's always a requirement to use a decent, tight fitting Respirator Mask. Because of the short exposure time, a "good Button Filter Cloth Mask" is acceptable...but the "Bomb" is a 3-M or similar DUAL Respirator Mask. While there isn't loads of dust getting tossed back into the far reaches of the room, while your painting from just 3' away, you are within a zone of mist you don't want to inhale.
Yeah....you might think you can hold your breath for a minute....but afterwards, when you see how coated your Nose hairs are, you'll realize that was a stew-pid idea.
