Remodeling your home can be incredibly beneficial – it can add function, form and value to your home, not to mention increase your quality of life. However, larger remodeling projects tend to create a lot of dust. Dust can cause serious problems for anyone living in your home that has asthma, suffers from respiratory illnesses or has severe allergies. In addition to making sure you have a professional come perform an air duct cleaning not soon after your renovations are finished (to help clear any dust that has gotten into your air ducts and has built up within them), you should also take preventative measures to keep as little dust from getting into the air during the remodel as possible. The following are a few ways to minimize dust during renovations:

  • Put up dust barriers – At the very minimum, you should have plastic sheets applied to the different entry points leading to the room that is under construction. These plastic sheets are known as zipwalls. Zipwalls will help keep dust and debris inside the room that is being worked on, preventing it from spreading throughout your entire house.
  • Use sticky mats – Sticky mats should be placed right outside the area of construction. This way, workers won’t track dust and debris throughout your home when they enter and exit the construction space. If the room being worked on is in the middle of the house, line the path to the exit with floor paper.
  • Use dust extractors – Power tools tend to cause quite a mess when used in a renovation. This is because they create a lot of sawdust and other debris when they are being used. A number of power tool companies have begun adding dust extractors to their power tools that suck up the dust as soon as the power tool creates it. This means that a power saw with a dust extractor will collect sawdust while it’s cutting, thereby helping prevent much of it from getting into your air.

Use these tips to help minimize dust during a remodel and don’t forget to get a professional air duct cleaning.
