How to Make Home Remodels Run Smoothly
Many of the people that come to Sloane’s Carpet Secret are on the tail end of a much larger remodeling project. Our carpet is the finishing touch. We know that home remodels of any size can be quite disruptive to your life from the general chaos of living without easy access to your possessions to the extra dirt and dust swirling around. Here are some ways to make home remodels run smoothly to minimize the disruption as much as possible.
1. Keep Only the Essentials – Pack Up the Rest
You will want to maximize the space you have since it’s likely extra workers and supplies will take up room in your normal living space. Make sure you have your essentials stored in a spot that you can easy access no matter what work is being done. Rolling storage units are easy to move and keep things organized and easily visible. Depending on the extent of your remodel, packing up boxes and putting them in short-term off-site storage is a good idea to keep items out of the way and safe from construction debris.
2. Enhance Home Security
Your renovation team might be extremely trustworthy, but when you have contractors and service providers in and out of your home, it presents an opportunity for thieves to insert themselves into the chaos. Remove smaller valuable items to a safety deposit box or to a friend’s home and consider adding a programmable lock to your door that you only give out to your renovation team.
3. Prioritize and Organize your Important Stuff
Reduce the stress of not being able to find the things you need by organizing your most important items outside of the construction zone. This only has to be a temporary solution to keep things such as bill paying, device charging and calendars in a command center that allows you to efficiently live your life throughout the remodel.
4. Ask for Help When Needed
Prepare yourself to lean on neighbors, friends and family even if you can’t foresee before the remodel what you might need from them. Your pets, children and sanity might all be in danger at some point or another during the remodel, and our friends and family might be able to provide the haven we need.
