4 Tips to Prepare Your Home for a Basement Remodel
The best basement remodelers will have a project manager or a liaison within close reach. Make sure they have the best contact numbers for you and anyone else in the family who is involved. This includes phone numbers and emails.
Remove Belongings From the Basement
Most of your basement possessions should be packed up before the basement contractors arrive. All furniture, pictures, mirrors, and other breakables should be in another area of the home. If you’ve moved your belongings to an adjacent room, make sure they are not by the walls.
Create Walking Paths to Important Areas
If your basement does not have a separate entrance, then the basement company will have to enter through another part of the home. They will lay plastic covering over this walkway to protect the floor and keep the house nice and tidy, but you can help the basement contractors move freely by keeping this area free of any clutter.
Basement remodelers use protective plastic around doorways and cover all furnishings to protect them from dust. Keeping the door to your basement closed during the basement remodeling hours will make sure the dust does not spread to other areas of your home. You also may want to turn off the central air during certain steps (like sanding) to keep the dust from going through the ventilation system into other parts of the home.
