If you intend performing a DIY renovation to your home or office, you might be surprised at how much dust and debris you create. Below are a few tips for cleaning up after a renovation, as well as keeping your work area as clean as possible while you work.
Rent A Mini Bin
By renting a mini bin you can easily clean your work site as you go. The size and scale of your renovation will determine the size and type of mini bin you require. The type of waste you generate may also require more than one type of bin—such as one bin for soil, and another for concrete.
Seal Off The Surrounding Rooms
Minimize dirt and disruption in the rest of your home or office by sealing off the surrounding rooms. You can find large roles of plastic sheeting at any home improvement store. Just make sure that the tape you use to seal the area is safe for the walls they are taped to. Tape all four sides, including both walls, ceiling, and floor. To really minimize the transfer of dust, use 2 layers for rooms you will not need to access —and 3 layers for rooms you will be going in and out of; two that function as flaps on each side of the slit you use to access the space. Also cover any smoke and CO2 detectors in the room, or the volume of dust may render them obsolete.
Renovation Clean Up
Once your renovation is complete, comes the time-consuming job of cleaning up. Start at the top, and work your way down to the flooring. Rent or purchase an industrial vacuum to suction up the fine dust that remains after wiping down the ceilings and walls with a dust mop or microfiber cloths. Don’t forget to pay special attention to light fixtures, smoke and CO2 detectors, and vents. Last but not least, change your air filters directly before and after your renovation—and again in the next 2 weeks.
