Swapping out your old window for a new one can be a messy job. However, there are ways that can help you minimize the dirt and dust as well as protect your belongings during the project.
Use Drop Cloths
Place drop cloths on the floor where your contractor will be working. The number of drop cloths you need usually depends on how many windows are going to be replaced. Installers clean up these drop cloths at the end of each work day. But sometimes they simply set the drop cloths aside and gather up the dirt and dust upon completion of the project.
Use Plastic Wrap Coverings
Whether you are installing windows or sliding French doors, you might want to cover large items or interior surfaces with plastic wrap. This will prevent dust from settling on your couch, bed, table or shelves. Much like the drop cloths, these plastic coverings will also be disposed of by your contractor at the end of each work day or after the project is completed.
Store Personal Items in a Safe Place
Protect valuable or delicate items by placing them in a secure storage. Your garage or basement is usually a good place to hide your belongings for the meantime so that they won’t get damaged during window replacement. If you don’t have extra space where you can temporarily keep such things, you can opt to rent storage instead.
