When Capital Renovations Group begins a home remodeling project, one of the top priorities is making sure our clients avoid a dusty, dirty mess and can live comfortably in their homes during a renovation. Since studies show that about 90 percent of homeowners want to stay in their homes during remodeling projects, we make sure our clients don’t end up regretting it.
Why? Construction dust. It isn’t just a nuisance. Remodeling and demolition dust can trigger asthma attacks, allergic reactions and problems for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Jobsite dust can also have an adverse effect on the health of pets that are in the home during construction. In addition, particles from sawing, scraping and sanding can contain hazardous materials such as asbestos, arsenic or lead.
Dust can be an overwhelming problem. And it can quickly permeate every part of your home, from your toothbrush to your dog’s fur. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to. And responsible contractors now proactively apply renovation dust control techniques using a Build Clean dust control system.
Here are a few ways you can tell whether your contractor is concerned about a healthy, livable environment during a major remodeling project.
So, before you select a home remodeling contractor, does your remodeler:
- Have a dust control plan? Not just a fan in a window, but a real action plan that will assure you that dust will be contained to the worksite – not the other rooms in your house.
- Use best practices as part of the plan? For example, Capital Renovations Group uses the BuildClean Dust Control System (buildclean.com) because it takes away up to 90 percent of the airborne dust, even on the most challenging projects. We know the installation of barrier walls and use of vacuums aren’t enough.
- Bring up renovation dust control methods to you before you even ask about it? During our first planning meetings, Capital Renovations Group informs clients that we are a “clean” contractor. You will hear about our dust control plan and why we believe it is an essential part of a healthy home remodeling environment.
So, if you are considering undertaking a home remodeling project, you no longer have to worry about the mess. You can now breathe a (clean) sigh of relief. You and your family deserve the best, which is why Capital Renovations Group will provide a clean, healthy remodeling environment for your entire family.
