Window replacement can increase your home’s energy efficiency and boost curb appeal. It can also enhance comfort in your living space. However, the process can get messy, leaving you with so much to do to clean up the job site. To avoid such a situation, take note of these five tips on how to keep your home clean and organized during window replacement.
Clear the Area Around the Windows
First, you’ll want to remove any furniture, decorations or potential obstacles from the area around the windows being replaced. This will make it easier for the roofing contractor to work and minimize the risk of damage to your belongings. Cover floors and surfaces with drop cloths or plastic sheeting to protect them from dust and debris during window replacement.
Protect Your HVAC System
During the renovation, airborne dust and debris can find their way into your home’s HVAC system, potentially causing issues down the line. To prevent this, turn off the system during window replacement and cover vents and registers with plastic or cloth to keep particles from entering.
Communicate With Your Window Replacement Contractor
Don’t hesitate to discuss your concerns about cleanliness with your window replacement and residential roofing service provider. They may have specific recommendations or precautions that can help keep your home tidy during the process.
Create a Path for the Workers
Designate a specific entrance and exit for the window replacement team to minimize dirt and debris being tracked throughout your home. Lay down protective coverings on floors and stairways leading to the work area, which can easily be cleaned or removed once the job is done.
Keep Windows and Doors Closed
Prevent dust and debris from spreading throughout your home by closing windows and doors, especially in rooms not being worked on. This simple step can go a long way in keeping your home clean during renovation.
