Starting A Home Construction Project? 3 Things To Get First

Industrial & Manufacturing Blog

Are you starting some home renovations and you worry about what type of mess the workers are going to make in your home or around the property? There are some ways you can try to keep the mess and the waste to a minimum, and you can protect the home.

You'll want to make sure that the workers aren't using your home like their own, and that they can treat your property with respect while they are there working. Since this isn't a guarantee, take these preventative measures in advance.

Portable Toilet

You most likely don't want multiple people coming into your home to use the toilet, or clogging up the toilet while they work. Have a portable toilet dropped off and make it clear to all your contractors that all of the employees should not use the home bathrooms, and instead they are able to use the portable toilet. The toilet should be stocked with toilet paper and hand sanitizer when it's dropped off on your property.


Removing all the debris from the different contractors and the work that is going on can be hard to manage and expensive if you have a company come pick it up. Instead, you'll want to have a construction dumpster dropped off outside your home so you can dispose of old materials, nails, and other debris from the construction project. Get a dumpster from a company that specializes in removing construction type materials, so your list of limitations isn't extensive. Contact a business, such as Parks & Sons of Sun City, Inc., for more information. 

Carpet or Flooring Paper or Wrap

Do you have carpet or flooring that you worry is going to get damaged by the debris or workers? If so, you'll want to have it sealed with a plastic cover or have paper rolled out for people to work, so it doesn't get walked on. This is easy to do and will save you from stains, tears, scratches and more while people are working around your home. Even dust from far away areas in the home can float and transport to areas least expected, so protecting all flooring should be a consideration.

You can't do anything about the need for people to be in and out of the house when they are doing construction projects around your property, but you can help to keep the workers from making themselves at home by using your facilities, and you can protect the carpeting and flooring as well. If you have nice furniture or other appliances or electronics you want to preserve, cover these so they aren't exposed while the workers are at the house.
