The thread about dirt floors for livestock barns got me thinking.....Our barn, used for horse stalls, woodworking, raising baby chickens, storing the riding mower and various other outdoor tools, and also used for storing hay, has a very dusty dirt floor. Part of the floor is covered with rubber mats (the cross-tie area where I groom and tack up the horses). I can't afford to buy mats to cover the entire floor. Is there a way to keep down the dust? It's been very dry in Texas this year, so the dust is worse than ever. I know I could just use a hose and spray the floor down periodically, but I thought there might be another solution out there. Is there some kind of compound that people use to keep the dust down? Something that could be poured or sprayed on the floor every couple of months maybe?
