On-site cleanup, and dust protectioin

Hi,
What is reasonable to expect as interior cleanup when a worker is done for the day? Things like drywall dust and debris on floor? I have the same question about sealing against mud sanding dust. How large does a job have to be, before a barrier such plastic sheets are used? This dust is incredibly invasive and destructive, and can damage computers, electronics like TVs, even normal household vacuum cleaners. I've heard it can ruin shop vacs. It infiltrates over an entire house.
Thanks.

If it's not in the written contract, one can expect nothing. A well run job would include a price for dust partitions and clean up. TB

Thanks for the reply. When I do the occassional bit of work for someone, I assume it's part of the job, so I leave a clean site, especially if it's interior work. Assuming others would is my mistake.
Looks like I don't have a well run job. And I didn't ensure a good contract.

Now you know why there are so many horror stories people tell about renovations/contractors. <g>

You are so right. In Nova Scotia, it's not normal practice for contracts to be drawn up for "small" jobs, although our window job of $4,500 isn't small to us. Does this lack of a contract happens in many other places?
