The last thing you want to find at the end of a remodel is flooring that has been ruined because it wasn’t properly protected during construction. There are many different ways to protect your flooring from the damage that can happen during a renovation. After all, you have invested a good amount of money into your flooring. Carpet Care 2000 is here to talk about some ways that you can protect your flooring from the effects of the renovation process.
Lay Out a Clear Path for Construction Workers
Whether you are handling this renovation on your own, or have hired a crew to take it on for you, you will want everyone to know where they are allowed to walk. Workers will be coming and going day in and day out. You will want to have a pathway clearly marked so you don’t end up with a clear trail of dirt and dust when the renovations are over. Carpeted surfaces need to be covered with puncture resistant covering. This will allow any tools or other supplies to fall without causing problems for your carpet. Another great option is sticky mats inside any doors leading to the outdoors. This will remove the dirt and debris before the crew even steps into your house in the first place.
Keep Clean Floors as Messes Happen
You want to make sure that your floors are getting cleaned at the end of each day. When workers complete the tasks for the day, make sure they are cleaning up their workspace. This includes your floors. Using a decent shop-vac and wet mop at the end of the day will go a long way in keeping your floors from damage.
Seal & Vent the Workspace
By making sure the workspace is properly sealed and vented, you will be protecting your entire house including the flooring. There are many noxious fumes and substances that eventually end up turning into fine dust. Using a fire retardant sheeting is the best option for any renovation.
Protection as Construction Wraps Up
As your renovation comes to an end, it will take some time to get the space cleaned up. As you start to remove the flooring protectors as well as the tarps sealing off the area, you may want to have some disposable booties available to the workers to slip on and off while they are wrapping things up. They will also be handy for anyone that is making deliveries to your home to furnish the space.
