Remodeling any part of your home is a very exciting process, but there is a lot that goes into it. Along with excitement, it can also be overwhelming and bring on a good amount of stress. For this reason, you want to be prepared for your remodeling project so that everything runs as smoothly as possible. Here is how to prepare your home for a remodeling project.
Move Fragile & Valuable Items
The first thing you want to do is move any items that can be easily broken or are of great value to you. Things like artwork, china, electronics, personal photos, and anything else you don’t want to get damaged should be taken out of the room and placed somewhere safe.
Clear Out Large Items
Cleaning out your space ahead of time can really make a contractor’s job a lot easier. You want to take all of the large furniture items out of the room(s) that is being remodeled. The best way to preserve these large items is to take them out of the room and then wrap them tightly in a plastic sheeting so that dust and debris from construction won’t get onto them. If you do not want to take on this take, you may be able to work with your contractor to get some workers to do this for you.
Keep Items Safe From Theft
Even if the remodeling project is taking place in the basement, you still want to gather all of your personal items from all around the house. Valuable items such as jewelry, money, and prescription drugs should be removed from the home completely to keep them safe from any possible theft. It’s a good idea to get a small safe to store these items in to ensure that they will remain secure.
Safe Zones & Limits
Just because a remodeling project is taking place in a certain part of your home does not mean that contractors have freedom to roam the entire house as they please. If it is a large project, contractors may bring their own portable toilet, but for other smaller projects, it’s your choice whether or not they can use your bathroom. Guest bathrooms are good to use for contractors. If the kitchen isn’t being remodeled, the kitchen and dining room should generally be off limits to contractors, as well as bedrooms.
