Dear Sir,
        These are the views of expert
   Vacuums are a good idea while actually creating the dust. For clean up, keep it wet and sweep it up. Sweeping compounds like sweepsorb or other similar products can help to control the dust and keep it from becoming airborne.  Always wear a dust mask or respirator if possible. Silicosis is a real hazard here. Silica dust is a danger of concrete dust especially. Look it up; the fine dust created when drilling, grinding, or chipping concrete can become lodged in your lungs and cause cancer.
<edit>
As far as cleaning brick and cement dust off of finished surfaces, I am not really sure. Painted walls, cabinets, floors, and finished woodwork require care to make sure you don't grind abrasive dust into the surface or drag it across, causing scratches. Super soft brushes and feather dusters or dust mops might be the way to go in that situation

Use of vacuums could be best for cleaning dust particles all pose to serious health risks.
