Everything looks amazing. The new kitchen cabinets, the exclusive interiors and the brand new sofa that’s still covered. Renovating your house is all fun and games until you walk in after a work and feel like you’re inhaling a considerable amount of dust which in turn can agitate and stress you out. Before the renovation your house was a big mess with mould hanging in every room ceiling and broken tiles rattling all day. But after the Renovation, trust me it is still going to be a gigantic blob of mess involving a hell lot of dust and debris, and most importantly cleaning supplies. Read below for a few tips to help you out and make the entire process a bit more efficient and less stressful.
Pre Reno Cleaning.
Be it after a house demolition Gold Coast, deconstruction, remodel or Renovation, there’s going to be a plenty of positive things, but the clean-up process that follows is undoubtedly going to be hectic. So keeping in this in mind, and to make sure you’re not bombarded with days of chores, after the renovation, you could take some steps ahead of the project. Make sure to De-clutter your rooms and move away as much stuff as possible to clean up the Reno space. Keep all windows open and let the wind do its work carrying the layers of dust and paint smell out. And clean as you go, although it sounds pretty hectic, it can help you to keep the dust to a minimum.
Cleaning Up the Surfaces.
This includes basically all surfaces from kitchen counter tops to your book shelves, walls and floor tiles. If you want to enjoy the transformation in peace, you need to make sure everyone from little kids to parents and your pets are all safe from inhaling excessive dust and being exposed to other harmful dust particles. If you think its necessary you could also hire a professional for thorough clean up along with proper asbestos disposal procedures to ensure safety. If you don’t then cover all surfaces with the right choice of cleaning supplies. It depends on the surface if you want to use a wet or dry cloth, but if the walls are newly painted, wrap your broom with a cloth or use an extensive duster to reach higher places.
Carpeted floors make it all the more simple since you can just vacuum it a few times and get the cleaning done before the day ends. But if they’re wood, linoleum or tile, you might have to mop the floor following the vacuuming. In addition, don’t resort to just lay back after you’re done with carpeted surfaces and upholstery, the dust collects on every damn place so cover all soft surfaces such as couch cushions and beanbags. Since these are used more often, almost daily, they need to be carefully vacuumed separately to get rid of the residue dust.
Cleaning the Light Fixtures and Vents.
I think the most irritating part of the cleaning process is when you have to clean the light fixtures. Especially if they’re large crystal chandeliers. But when you renovate your house, there’s going to a lot hammering and triggering, and when this happens, the dust particles can crawl in to the tiniest places possible. But remember, every area needs to be free of dusts, so take down those lights unless they’re new and brush them up. Clean the blades of your curling fans, and unscrew the vents, and wash them with warm soapy water.
