One of the first steps in many NYC bathroom remodeling is the demolition process. A lot of people save themselves a good amount of cash by doing this part themselves. Not only does it save money but there are a few who would consider this as therapeutic and a good way to rid yourself of pent up anger.
The demolition process itself is a great way to start your NYC bathroom remodeling as it is not hard and each task can be done quickly. Finishing this is a good way to achieve a sense of accomplishment before the renovation begins. Just remember, the most important thing is to accomplish everything in a safe manner while simultaneously containing all the dust and remaining fragments within the construction area. So don’t forget your basic safety gear.
To protect other parts of your home, lay a mat on the entrance that you can use to clean your feet so as to avoid getting dirt anywhere else. Secure a tarp on certain areas to ensure that they are kept clean throughout the whole process. Also, you must make sure that any vents or ducts are sealed properly to avoid damage.
One thing you should keep in mind is that you may be able to reuse a few things such as wood moldings or some lumber used for framing. It might make things more difficult but it will save you money. If your NYC bathroom remodeling is particularly extensive you might have to look for people to haul everything away. On that note, you might have to rent a special vacuum that can deal with construction related debris to properly clean up.
