How To Do Major Home Renovations Without Ruining Your Valuables?

Making it easier on you to unpack – one common and rather irritating mistake that most people who are moving homes for the very first time do, is forget all about the unpacking. Not only they seal their belongings so tight that it takes a lot of effort to get into the first place; half the time, they have no clue as to what’s inside the box. To avoid this, label each box with what is inside it. Mark the “up side” in boxes that contain fragile items. Take the time to mark which room each box goes to, so your movers can drop it off in the right room. If you’re planning on doing a major renovation project and need a little help, then here are a few of our suggestions to help you do it without ruining your valuables…

Hiring the right kind of professional help
Avoid doing the classic mistake that most home owners do; trying to do the major renovations of their homes themselves. You may feel like you are saving quite a bit of money by not involving the professionals, but if you happen to make mistakes, or get busy other wise while the construction is still underway, you’ll find that you have to pay double for someone else to correct your mistakes. This, of course depends on how much experience your have in renovating. The right professionals or labour hire companies will make sure that they do minimum damage to your property and valuables while they are about. Just as a precaution, it might be a good idea to move your delicate items out of your homejust in case.

Isolating the area
Most labour hire agencies generally recruit builders that do a good job to start with. But if you are still not sure they’ll do a good job, ask around and find professional help that was recommended to you by a trusted friend or family member. Once you have found the help that you feel confident about, asking them if it’s possible for them to isolate the area which is under construction. Using a plastic dust protecting wall is one of the best ways to make sure the dust is confined to one place. Making sure to use a separate entrance and exit to the renovating area also helps to not carry the dust back into your home.

Taking out the most valuable things from harm’s way
Try as you might, it is nearly impossible to stop the dust from entering your non-renovating areas of your home entirely. If you feel your furniture or other valuable or delicates may get affected by the dust (or get stolen), then consider putting all of this into a room before the entire process begins, and quarantining this area. Don’t open this sealed room until all the dust from all over your home has been cleaned up entirely. Remember that some family members might be allergic to dust; make arrangements for them to stay elsewhere until your renovations are done with. For more information, please log on to
