Air movers, vacuum and air scrubber!
I do most of my cutting outside.
Absolutely love the FG Aspirator, it's a beast.
I tell them when you sand a floor it creates dust, so there will be dust.

This Bona setup allows me to have a clean environment. Money well-spent.
Thorough vac before starting a project. Oneida Dust Cobra, shop vac with the Dust Deputy, and the Vortex on the big machine. Vac after each pass so machines don't kick up dust on the floor.
I always prefer to cut inside the house, so I will isolate the saws to a closed-off room to contain minimal dust throughout the house. If there is not a room available, then I'll do four ZipWall poles and plastic off a temporary room to use as a cut station.
Oneida Vortex Dust Cobra /Vortex DCS on the Lägler Hummel is an absolute game changer in cleanliness, then we have Festool for everything else. No tape, plastic, time hanging, etc. Hook up the juice and let 'er rip!

Bona DCS 2.0 and a Cobra and a couple ProTeam MegaVacs and a shop vac and a DeWalt 13-gallon shop vac with a Dust Deputy and a portable DeWalt vacuum … I think that's it.
American Sanders AVAC or Dust Cobra primarily, and Festool CT48 for orbitals.
We just redid a floor that the jokers before us used a leaf blower to clean the floors. Grit in the finish was one of many complaints they had—imagine that.
I run a really old model X-839 Minuteman 15-gallon vacuum. Scored it for 25 bucks. I also have a small plastic Douglas shop vac I use for odd jobs and repairs because the other one is heavy, LOL.
I use vacuums and keep cleaning the dust bag, and at the end I feel like a cleaning lady cleaning countertops, windows and floor air vents.
The R2D2 [American Sanders AVAC 12-P] on edger, buffer, orbital, and hang plastic.
Bona Atomic Trailer, Festool CT 48 E AC.
For years we mistook dust-free as in dust is everywhere for you for free. My badddd.
