An anti-pollution face mask is a malleable cushion pad worn over the mouth and nose by rubber or elastic straps to block dust and other foreign particles encountered during cleaning and construction activities, for example dust from bricks, drywalls, fiberglass, wood, sweeping or silica. A dust mask is also used to ensure protection against allergens. A dust mask is generally worn in similar fashion like a surgical mask or a paint mask. Using an inappropriate mask for a specific job can pose a possibly deadly and significant danger since different dust masks with diverse levels of protection might look alike. Misfitting of dust masks may also pose a threat since they might allow the unwanted foreign particle to bypass the mask completely. Dust masks are supplied and used in order to protect against specific dangers and are unable to protect against toxic chemicals such as mists and vapors. Hence, it might be dangerous to confuse and mix paint masks with dust masks. Dust masks are relatively lighter, cheaper and more comfortable substitutes to respirators but the degree of protection provided by a dust mask can be a bit inefficient and more impressionable to poor fit or any misuse. Various dust masks comes with an extra advancement and improvements such as an upper and a lower straps behind the head along with having an aluminum strip on the outer part of the mask across the bridge of the nose to enable bends in order to achieve a custom fit. Dust masks might also have features such as a foam or rubber strip on the inside edge across the nose bridge to enable an accurate seal. Dust masks used by construction workers working around non-poisonous dusts must have a seal and note reading N95, as directed by National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
