Television shows preach it and in fact, it’s never been more desirable to complete a renovation project to add value to your home. In an idyllic world, such projects would be a breeze. Unfortunately, few of us have construction background and this means that we prefer not thinking much while carrying out such projects.
Sure, you might be thinking about the next shade of blue you are using on your walls, or just where that next electrical socket is going to be located. We’re going to make the subject bit more boring though – how should you deal with all of the inevitable debris that your project is going to bring?
We’ll now take a look at some of the main areas you need to look into in this regard.
How are you going to dispose of the debris?
This should be the first question on the tip of your tongue. Naturally, the answer to this question is going to largely depend on the type of your project. For example, if you are busy knocking down walls, it goes without saying that you are going to incur a lot more debris than if you are merely stripping wall paper.
Fortunately, rubbish removal services are now incredibly accessible. For the larger projects, you might need something like a skip to dispose of everything, while for smaller ones skip bags or even taking the rubbish to your local plant will suffice.
All we’re trying to say is that it’s an area you need to think about.
Is it unsafe?
The last part was all about quantity, but the type of debris also needs to be considered. Some debris types are dangerous to say the least; and, if you’re dealing with an old building, there’s every chance that nasty substances, such as asbestos, will be hiding away. Fortunately, newer buildings don’t have as many concerns related to them, but it’s still something you should be wary about.
If you do think that materials of this nature might be lurking around, it’s time to call the professionals in. Your rubbish removal options will be somewhat limited, and you may have to pay for specialised services to dispose it off.
What about the rest of the property?
Waste management is the mantra for sure. You might be renovating the kitchen, but don’t think that the rest of your house is safe. Debris spreads like there is no tomorrow; so, you’ll need to see that all sort of dust has transported itself to the other side of your house.
It means that you have to take adequate provisions. Purchase dust sheets, shut doors and just do everything in your power to ensure that the debris isn’t going to spread.
