Dust comprises different kinds of particles, including plant pollen, dead skin cells, and fibres from clothing and paper. Throughout time, it slowly accumulates and might invade your home’s corners, bed space, living areas and other areas in the house. It hides under furniture and sometimes on the walls. During a remodelling project, these dust particles have a high chance of being blown all over the work area and will become a liability for you and your family’s health.
Recommended renovation projects optimise both the advantages of proper planning and dust control to minimise the spread of dust to a broader area and completely clean up any form of debris. There are five ways of proper dust control during renovations.
Remove any form of dust accumulation
Ignoring any dust formation will result in a much harder task cleaning. Once an accumulation is spotted, quickly tidy up to avoid it from spreading any further.
Make use of a dust control system
Airborne particles are hard to catch through traditional methods. Making use of a dust control system will minimise any airborne dust particles floating about during the renovation. Always remember to clean out the system every once in a while. Too much dust may damage the internal electronics of your dust control system.
Proper cleaning from top to bottom
Cleaning the highest surfaces making your way to the bottom is a necessary tactic so that there won’t be any dust missed. Dust particles tend to accumulate on the top of shelves and cabinets. They also get stuck under the floorboards. So be keen on inspecting these areas in the house.
Make use of air purifiers
If the homeowners are allergic or asthmatic, the dust particles will pose a real health issue for them. Use air purifiers to ensure that the air will be clean and free from any particles.
Have an opening
One of the most common ways to get rid of dust is by having a clear opening for it to flow freely out of. You can open the room’s windows to allow the dust to escape outside and not get trapped inside the house. Investing in manual window openers or installing window fixtures with manual controls is an excellent way to have a stable opening. The window openers will help ensure that the windows remain open during the renovation.
One of the greatest benefits of controlling dust during renovations is that it minimises the risk of allergens affecting your family’s health. Not only will you feel more refreshed and comfortable after the renovation project, but there will also be nothing to get in the way of your daily routines. Just like other people out there, the first thing that will pop into their heads is maintaining a clean and tidy home. A home that is up-to-date and neatly remodelled does not only sell quicker, but it sells with a very high price.
