Dust Containment At The Jobsite
One of the challenges with remodeling is working in someone’s house, and usually while they are still living in the house. I find remodeling work challenging and rewarding, but the homeowner often finds the remodeling process annoying and a serious cramp to their lifestyle.
Remodeling dust is big homeowner annoyance during remodeling projects, especially dust from plaster.
Have A Dust Plan
When remodeling, you should be taking precautions to prevent dust from spreading to other areas of the home. Dust inevitably finds its way beyond the remodeling area and settles on all horizontal surfaces and duct work.
There is nothing worse than seeing remodeling dust settle on a black baby grand piano two rooms away. A good dust control strategy is essential to keeping your customer happy (or significant other during a DIY or remodeling project).
9 Dust Control Tips
1. In the work area, look for ways air can enter and leave the room. This would include sealing off doors, windows, air vents and any other openings. Take steps to control or block the openings.
2. Designate one doorway to be your main entryway to the room. Using thin plastic sheeting to seal off all the other areas you identified in step one except for exterior windows.
