Staying in your home during a
demolition project can be a real challenge, but if you prepare for it properly, it’s
not impossible. When you have a company do residential demolition, there
is going to be a lot of dust in the air inside of your home for a week
or two, so you should brace yourself for it. You should also take steps
to make the part of your home that’s not being demoed as comfortable
as possible for your family. Here are some tips for staying in your house
during a home demolition project.
Contain Dust in the Demo Area
If you don’t block off the area of your home where demolition is
taking place, you’re likely going to have dust floating throughout
your entire house throughout the project. You can avoid this by simply
blocking off the area of your home where demolition is happening. By putting
plastic sheets over doorways, you can limit the amount of dust that is
able to move throughout your house.
Adjust Your HVAC System
When you are having demolition done, you
should shut all of the HVAC vents that are located in the part of your home where the project is taking
place. You don’t want to send hot or cold air to those areas, and
you also don’t want to have the dust in the demolition area spreading
throughout your home through your HVAC system.
Work With a Professional Demo Company
You don’t want to work with a company that is going to rush through
the demolition process, but you do want to find a company that can complete
effective demolition as quickly as possible. The company should have a
definitive timeline that lets you know how long demolition is going to
last, and should also take steps to keep your home comfortable during
