There comes a time in every homeowner’s life when you realize you don’t love the layout of your home and decide it’s time to embark on a home remodeling project. Renovations are not easy, between determining a budget, choosing materials, and hiring contractors. One of the most important things that is often overlooked is the mess remodeling can make. Prevent destruction before it starts with some simple tips to keep the renovation contained:

- Keep the mess at bay. Remodeling projects tend to produce a lot of dust. A suspended cover traps dust and debris and is flexible enough to adapt to any environment. It also has the capacity to withstand major construction work.
- Protect your floors. Cover all work areas with tarps or other light, plastic coverings to reduce the risk of damaging your floors.
- Separate the construction area from the living area. Before you get started, establish separate zones in your home. If you’re working on your living room, set up an interim living space in a separate part of the house. Move any household items you will need to this construction-free zone in your home. Be aware of contaminants released during renovations that can be harmful when exposed to family members and household items.
- Ventilate your home. Exhaust ventilation will help remove dust and other pollutants and will create a barrier to prevent the pollutants from spreading through the rest of the house. Place small, portable fans facing outwards in your windows to help draw any dust and contaminants outside.
Save yourself the stress and aggravation of a messy renovation by utilizing construction site protection to help preserve the rest of your home during remodels. For more information from the experts, contact
