A Home Renovation can be a very rewarding experience. Whether you choose to hire yourself a contractor or DIY, the process is an extremely tedious one. There are several factors that you have to worry about – Supplies, Knowledge, Waste Management and Managing Time. Luckily, we at Dump-Squad have narrowed down 4 crucial tips for the success of your Home Renovation Project:
1) Start Outside – Finish Inside.
There is a saying that the Landscaping industry follows like the bible – work yourself in. What it means is to start outside and work your way inside. In this case, start with the walls.
Once the drywall comes down, there will be plenty of dust and residue all over the place which can make it a big mess. Your goal is to always keep the Job-Site as clean as possible to avoid any accidents (Tripping, Nails etc..).
2) Start Top – Finish Bottom
Similar to working outside to inside, once the walls are done with, you will want to shift your focus to the top. Yes…the ceilings. All the lights, fixtures, ceiling fans etc..
Taking them down will also lead to the a lot of dust and debris as it will fall on the surface and create the same amount of mess as when you where breaking down the walls.
3) Get Rid of Excess Debris
This is perhaps the easiest thing you can do. Make sure you clear your path of all Debris, Junk that can potentially block your path to disposing waste easily. While a lot of people think this is the hardest thing to do, it is perhaps the easiest. All you need is some right planning and execution.
Our Recommendation would be to renting a large garbage bin or multiple mini bins. Dump-Squad will be more than happy to price and size you out on the approximate size of bin you require if you were to provide the area you are working with. Our Crew is experienced and have been doing this a long time. If you are not sure what size of a bin you need, we always an email or call away!
4) Dispose All Furniture?
The last thing you want to do is dispose all the furniture. Some Furniture is still good to go even after your renovation and more often than not just needs an deep clean. However, things like couches and shelves are sometimes antiques and in that case, we recommend letting go of those items.
