If you’re having your windows replaced, you have to prepare your home for large amounts of dust and dirt throughout the project. In this article, Renewal by Andersen of Denver shares three easy steps to help you contain the mess during a window replacement job.
Place Drop Cloths in Work Areas
Window contractors usually place drop cloths across the home to minimize dust and debris that fall on the floors. The amount of drop cloths needed depends on the number of windows that are up for replacement. Typically, drop cloths are only spread in areas where installation is being done. At the end of each work day, contractors clean up the drop cloths or set them aside where the cloths won’t be a bother.
Use Plastic Wrap Coverings
You can cover the interior surfaces and large items with plastic wrap. This way, dust won’t settle on your couches, beds or shelves. Your contractor will either dispose of the plastic wraps at the end of each work day or after completing the window installation project. If you have a preference, you can let the workers know about it.
Store Your Items in a Secure Place
For delicate or valuable items, you might want to consider finding a proper storage. Your garage or basement could be a good place to keep your belongings. But if you don’t have these rooms in your home, you can rent storage instead. Keeping your valuables in storage will eliminate risk of damage, and you can protect your items from getting dusty or dirty.
