The More Things Change with Home Renovation, The More They Can Stay the Same!
Keep Living Your Life: It’s important to keep living your life. Even though your home will undergoing some major changes, it doesn’t have to disrupt your lifestyle. If you have to, stay at a hotel or a motel, or with friends or relatives. Good meals, hot showers, and fresh clothes can all help you stay calm during the chaos of a renovation. If your water service will be unavailable, you may need to stock up on bottled water and secure someplace else to bathe.
Contain All the Mess: The next important step is to contain all the mess. Figure out areas where they can be stored out of the way until the mess and waste can be disposed of. Communicating with your contractor will help.
Guard Against Air Pollution: Air pollution and indoor air quality is another critical factor to keep in mind. As with many other projects involving the home, make sure adequate ventilation is in order. If you have to, take refuge at a friend or neighbor’s place instead. Windows can help you ventilate your home if need be.
Protect Your Valuables, Too: Also be sure to protect both your property and your valuables inside that property. Electronics, furniture, and other valuables should be kept well-clear of the work zone. Keep any pricey phones out of the work zone, too. You don’t want any unfortunate mishaps causing you more money than necessary.
Stay Communicative with the Contractors: Lastly, and this is a point we’ve touched on above, stay communicative with the contractors. They might be hard at work, but there will be changes popping up you can’t anticipate and plan. Open communication is the key to helping everything go as smoothly as possible.
