With new windows, your humble abode will look more attractive and get better protection against the elements. They can also make your living space brighter, fresher and more inviting. While window replacement offers plenty of benefits, you might have to deal with a lot of mess during the process.
A roof repair and window installation expert gives tips on how to keep your home clean during the project.
Protect Your Furniture, Appliances and Decor
Take all the furniture pieces and appliances you can carry to another room. Cover items that are too heavy with plastic sheets or tarps. Don’t forget to remove items from shelves and walls because they might fall from vibrations created by removing old windows and installing new ones.
Turn Off Your HVAC System
You may need to turn off your HVAC system during exterior renovations such as roofing installation and window replacement. It will protect your unit and help keep dirt and dust from reaching other areas of your home. If you feel too uncomfortable, you can keep your equipment on but be sure to cover or tape the vents in the rooms that will get new windows.
Close Your Doors
Another thing you can do to contain dust and debris in the window replacement site is to close all the doors in your home. Cleanup will be easier and faster if all the mess is in one place.
Seal the Site if Necessary
Depending on what style of windows you’re getting, you might have to seal the rooms where work will occur. Some contractors conceal the site when replacing large units like bay and bow windows. Before your project, ask your installer if they will do this step. If not, you can accomplish it by hanging plastic sheets around the window replacement site.
