Default Spray Painting Question

I do a lot of spray painting in my garage and every time I do it, I notice that after im done , a lot of excess paint lands on the floor and dries up but does not attach to the floor, it is like a paint dust , maybe its the paint pigment or something but anyways after i spray theres a lot of this paint dust that lands all over the place, under shelves and everywhere, and its a big mess, I would have to move everything out of my entire garage to clean it up. I will do that sometime but if i paint again , is there any way to stop this mess from happening? I know people are going to say, oh just dont paint at home. but thats not what Im looking for, so is there any answers to this problem? Thanks

cut a hole in the wall and install an exhaust vent with fan. that will suck the air out of the room and a good portion of the paint dust also.

You really shouldn't be painting without an exhaust fan anyway, it is not good for your respiratory system.

1) Hang plastic from the ceiling down to the floor, all around the painting area to close it off.

2) Install a ventilation fan through a wall to draw out the over spray (not good for you anyways).
Wet the floor down with a fine mist of water (keeps the dust down & keeps your floor cleaner).

3) Provide a fresh air intake, preferably filtered if you want a good paint job.

Painting outside has its problems too. You have to worry about bugs and other stuff getting into your paint and causing you to have to redo your paint job.

I had to redo some of my Rupp's frame after I got some junk in the paint as it was drying.
