How To Control Remodeling Dust – Best Practices

READ complete article here –

As a remodeling contractor I learned early on that learning how to control remodeling dust and keeping out of the non-remodeled portion of your clients home is often more important than the quality of your work.

There is nothing worse than having your client tell you they want you to pay for a professional to remove the plaster dust from inside their baby grand piano.

Over the years I have developed strategies and researched the BEST methods to control remodeling dust. If you believe that any of the materials being worked on during this renovation contain lead paint you need to consult and follow the EPA Renovation, Repair and Paint guidelines as well as your local and state guidelines.

Here is my best practice list on how to control remodeling dust.

1. Communicate the process to the homeowner:
2. Isolate the work area:
3. Install sticky mats:
4. Seal all heating and cooling vents:
5. Remove or cover homeowners property:
6. Protect floors and walls:
7. Capture airborne dust
8. Capture dust at its source:
9. Vacuum don’t sweep:
10. Cut materials outside:
11. Clean as you go:
12. Utilize a debris chute:
