Oh yes, it’s beginning to look a lot like a home rather than a house! Remodelling is great fun because the property transforms into the image you see in your head. And, what’s left is a dream house, hopefully. But, as moms know, renovating or decorating is messy busy and leaves the home in a state. Cleaning is futile when there are burly men walking soil through the living room and bricks on the floor. I mean, come on guys. Thankfully, it has hit home that a remodel doesn’t have to be a dirty and disgusting process. With these tips, it can be extraordinarily clean.
Remove The Removable
It’s amazing how many homeowners wait for the contractors to arrive before they gut the property. Everyone knows that the carpets and the furniture are not going to last, which is why you can start to remove them in the first place. If they are old and unusable, take them to curb and let the removal company or garbage men and women deal with it. Should you want to use them again, store them away (the garden shed maybe?) and wait until the project is over. The same goes for artwork, coffee tables, photos and general accessories.
Cover It Up
Dust and dirt are inevitable, but they don’t have to fly everywhere as the drills and hammers plug away. As it happens, it is possible to direct both into one place and then pick it up and throw it in the trash. How comes the cry? Well, with polythene sheets like the ones on the TV show Dexter. You may not be a serial killer, but you can still cover the house with plastic sheets to limit the damage. After a day’s work, simply take them down, roll them up, and dispose of them legitimately.
While builders and designers occupy the space, there is always going to be clutter. So, the trick is to get them out of the property ASAP, but the job needs finishing first. It’s for this reason OCD homeowners turn to The Renovation Company for help. According to their site, the firm can complete whole home renovations in six weeks or less. That’s a shockingly low number of 180 days, give or take a couple of days. Of course, the speed depends on the project, but they pretty guarantee a quick turn around. For a second opinion, get quotes from competing businesses and compare.
Talk To The Contractor
A team of builders can’t come into your home, make a mess and leave. Sure, no one expects the house to be spic and span, but it shouldn’t resemble a bombsite either. Although some people find it a difficult topic to broach, asking the contractors to clean up before they go home is perfectly acceptable. As long as they sweep the floors and clear the clutter into an industrial waste bin, the property won’t look as bad. And, if they refuse, tell them it’s non-negotiable.
The answer is no; a remodel doesn’t have to be dirty. After all, do you want to live in an untidy house?
