Home improvements produce a lot of dust and debris. While window replacement is less messy than other types of home improvements, it’s no exception. You’ll want to take measures to keep your home clean. Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey shares tips on how to keep your home clean during window replacement.
Place Drop Cloths Away from Paths
Most installers place drop cloths to protect furniture and other valuables from accidental dents and scratches. Drop cloths also catch some of the debris and help make it easier to clean up afterward. If you plan to install drop cloths yourself ahead of the installation, make sure that they are not installed on paths, as they could cause someone to trip. Fortunately, you don’t have to worry about drop cloth placement with us – we will provide our own drop cloths and cover the paths to make sure that your things are kept safe throughout the installation process.
Cover Your Appliances and Other Items
Dust and debris will be shaken loose as the old windows are removed. Certain items like electronics, antiques and collectibles may be sensitive to dust. Don’t risk problems by making sure that they’re covered with plastic sheeting or dust covers before window installation begins. Like drop cloths, plastic sheeting can help keep dust from spreading to other areas. Alternatively, you may pack items and put them away safely until the window installers are done.
Talk to Your Replacement Window Installer
A good window replacement company will take precautions to keep installations as mess-free as possible. If you have concerns about preparations and after-installation cleanup, don’t hesitate to talk to your window installers. Let them know about areas that they need to watch out for, or if you need help clearing things around the windows.
At Renewal by Andersen®, cleaning up is part of our installation process. In addition to properly disposing of your old windows, the members of our installation team are trained to thoroughly clean their work areas after the new windows are installed. We’ve had many customers say that it’s as if the windows have installed themselves.
