5 Ways to Keep Your Home Clean During a Remodel

Lifestyles - Fri, 05/15/2015 - 1:59pm
Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - Maybe you're finally updating your 1970s kitchen to one that's more sleek and modern. Perhaps it's as simple as remodeling a bathroom. Whatever the room, home renovations can be pretty hectic and messy.

To get through your renovation, home organization is the key. The following tips should help you stay on top of the chaos.

* Have files for everything. Paperwork should be kept in one place. Inexpensive file folders that are portable can help you stay structured. Create a file for all receipts, and as you post them to a budget, move them to another file labeled "posted." Permits and papers from the city should be kept together. Just for fun, create a folder of design ideas and pictures from magazines to keep you inspired.

* Cover it up. One word: plastic. No, not credit cards. Use it to cover all heavy furniture that can't be moved from the room. This will prevent dust and debris from getting into the cracks and crevices and keep the finish on the furniture looking shiny.

* Keep a list. No matter how good your memory, things are going to fall through the cracks. Hanging a clipboard on a nail in the area you are working in will help you to stay on task about people you need to contact, or things you need to do or buy for the next day.

* Have a place for everything. If you're doing the remodel yourself, there is going to be a certain amount of chaos and upheaval. One thing that will help reduce your stress level is keeping your tools in one place. Create a space, such as a table, where all small tools are kept. The larger tools can sit on the floor under the table. Every time you're finished with a tool, put it back.

* Contain your stress. If you're a person who turns to cigarettes or smokeless tobacco in times of stress, try your best to keep things clean by going outside to smoke or by carrying a portable spittoon. After all, you don't want a fresh burn mark or stain from a spill to end up on your brand new floors. FLASR has created a one-of-a-kind pocket-sized spittoon that allows users to open and shut it with just one hand, making it an ideal solution for taking your snuff, dip or chew into any room that's being renovated. In addition, the Atlanta-based company's spittoon, has an advanced closing mechanism, ensuring that it stays securely closed when not in use, eliminating the risk of spill and leaks often seen with cups and bottles.
