Renovation 101: Protecting Your Home From Dirt & Damage



Even if it’s your first time having your home remodeled, you probably already know that kitchen and bathroom renovations can get messy. The good news? While dust and dirt cannot be avoided, you can prevent them from affecting your furniture and belongings.

Learn how to protect your home from damage and unnecessary mess during a remodel with these tips from DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Southern Lakes.

Cover Up

You can protect your furniture from scratches and dirt simply by covering them up. This tip is best applied to pieces that are too heavy to be moved to another location. You can also use plastic sheets or tarps as a dust barrier, effectively isolating the area where the renovation is underway from the rest of the home.

Make a Path

While most bathroom and kitchen remodeling contractors will take precautions, your flooring will inevitably take a beating during the renovation. However, you can still protect it from mud and scratches by covering the path from the entry to the room under renovation with heavy canvas tarps. You can also make a plywood walkway outside the house to avoid mud completely. If the renovation area is upstairs, cover the stair using rosin paper for wooden staircases and a dropcloth for carpeted stairs.

Shield Countertops

Any flat surface is fair game when it comes to renovations. This means that even your countertops can become a landing place for renovation tools. Keep your countertops intact and free of nicks and dents by covering them with thick cardboard held in place by duct tape. Don’t forget to cover the edges and corners as well.
