    I don't do any Laundry for a couple of days before I intent to dev Negs

    Also I wet/damp dust the place the night before and again early the next morning.

    An oil filled radiator keeps the darkroom warm

    Enlarging Lenses are kept outside the darkroom and spare sealed mounting plates are used as keepers on the Enlargers

    Dust is a PIA but can be minimised

    Good luck

    I also have a laundry/dark-room setup. 8x8ft without the appliances so on the small side. Also have two cats to compound the problem.
    Thought dust would be an issue the first time I used it, but was too excited to get started to waste time cleaning. Figured all would probably turn out badly anyway after a 14 year hiatus, decided to throw caution to the wind. As it turns out have had zero dust issues after multiple sessions. No vacuuming, no washing down of walls. Just a can of air to blow off the lens, carrier and neg before I print.
    Maybe dumb luck, but if it ain't broke...
