Upgrading to custom windows can be an exciting home improvement project, but the process can also bring about its fair share of mess. Fortunately, Renewal by Andersen® of Montana is here to share seven valuable tips on how to keep your home clean during window replacement.
1. Choosing the Right Time for Window Replacement
To minimize mess and disruption, it’s important to pick the right time for your window replacement. Keep an eye on the weather forecast to avoid scheduling your project during rain or high winds, which can cause additional mess and complications. Additionally, choose a time when you can be present to oversee the process and address any potential issues promptly.
2. Clear the Area Around Your Windows
Before your window replacement begins, prepare your space by removing any furniture, decorations or other items near the windows. This will ensure a hassle-free working area for the professionals and reduce the risk of accidental damage to your belongings. Additionally, laying down protective coverings, such as drop cloths or plastic sheeting, will help catch any debris, making the cleanup process much easier.
3. Protect Your Floors and Carpets
Your floors and carpets need special attention during window replacement to avoid stains, scratches or other damage. Cover them with drop cloths or plastic sheeting and secure the coverings in place using tape to prevent them from shifting during the project.
4. Seal Off Adjacent Rooms
Closing doors to other rooms in your home will help minimize the spread of dust and debris. For open doorways or areas where doors cannot be closed, use plastic sheeting to create a barrier that will contain the mess.
5. Ventilate Your Home
Maintaining good airflow during window replacement will help reduce dust buildup and keep your home comfortable. Open windows or doors in other areas of your home, and use fans as needed to help circulate the air.
6. Consider Casement Windows for Easy Cleaning
Casement windows are not only attractive but also easy to clean due to their design. These windows open fully, allowing you to easily access both the interior and exterior panes. Using casement windows for your project can make the post-installation cleanup a breeze.
7. Clean Up During and After the Replacement Process
Make a point to regularly clean up debris during the replacement window process. This will prevent any buildup and ensure a faster cleanup after the project is complete. Once the replacement is finished, thoroughly clean the area, removing any dust, debris or remnants of the old windows.
