Minimize Dust in Your Home During Construction
A great way to help you ensure the rest of your home remains as minimally impacted by construction dust as possible, is by “zip locking” the construction zone area with plastic coverings. You can choose either basic plastic coverings or invest in actual zip closures that are truly worth the cost if you value your time and the commitment to combatting dust.
Cover Everything in Adjacent Rooms
Zip coverings will keep a lot of dust out of adjoining rooms but adding another layer of protection will also assist in minimizing the added cleanup once renovations are complete.
By using plastic sheets or cloth sheets you no longer want, you will be able to protect your furniture, while ensuring an easy and affordable way to keep the items in your home clean.
Clear the Walls and Shelves
Pictures and knickknacks are big dust collectors, so band the family together to store them away, reminding them of the age-old adage – “many hands make light work”.
Not only will this keep all the small crevices in your home’s décor clear of dust particles, but also creates an ideal time to dust off previous layers of dust from your keepsakes.
Decide on Your Living Conditions
Depending on the extend of your renovations, there may be a need for you to take a ‘leave of absence’ from your home for a short period of time to maintain your comfort. Whether choosing to stay with family or utilizing this time for a local staycation – having a plan as to where you’ll live, or even simply where you’ll eat if you’re having a kitchen renovation completed, will help you maintain your sanity and lifestyle much more seamlessly with a plan intact.
The above are just a few ways you can help your home and family prepare for renovations, and we would be more than happy to fully discuss a plan with you once you have decided on your project, collectively coming together to uncover how we can work around you to ensure the best outcome for your family!
