Dealing with dust and debris is a crucial aspect of the renovation process. To safeguard yourself and your property, it’s vital to adopt a proactive approach to cleaning your home or business remodel.

Several steps can be taken before a remodel to reduce the clutter and strain of your project. Additionally, if you have already started your remodel and require help with debris control, options are available. We will cover the following topics:

  • Pre-Renovation Preparations
  • Handling Debris During a Renovation
  • Disposing of Debris Post-Renovation

Pre-Renovation Preparations

The most effective method for handling construction and demolition (C&D) debris is to act before starting the renovation. Items left exposed around your project area can accumulate dust and debris, settling in every nook and cranny and making cleanup more challenging and time-consuming.

Removing old, fragile, and valuable items from the renovation workspace is essential to prevent dust and debris damage.

Ensure you remove all your belongings, including furniture, decorations, rugs, etc., until the area you’re renovating is empty. Protect any unremovable fixtures or carpeted materials with corrugated plastic, sticky mats, plastic coverings, or similar items. Use plastic rather than fabric coverings, as small particles can get stuck in soft materials and penetrate the protective barrier.

Create a strategy for disposing of renovation waste, including materials like drywall, tiles, packaging, and dust. Renting a temporary dumpster provides a cost-effective and efficient solution for handling C&D debris throughout your project. Typically, dumpster rentals are available for a week or longer, making them suitable for more extensive or continuous projects. Arranging for a dumpster rental beforehand is advantageous, as it helps minimize the likelihood of damage or accidents.

For more modest projects generating under seven cubic yards of debris, consider utilizing sturdy garbage bags and enlisting a junk removal team to dispose of your waste after the renovation.

Handling Debris During a Renovation

To prevent spreading fine particles throughout your property:

  1. Contain remodeling dust within your workspace.
  2. Create a single entry and exit point to and from the workspace by taping down a tarp or plastic sheet to contain dust and debris tracked in and out by workers.
  3. At the end of each day, shake out the dust settled on the plastic or tarps into a garbage bag, dumpster, or a single pile for vacuuming.
  4. Fold and store your protective path in the remodeling area for reuse the next workday.

Proper ventilation is crucial to minimize dust particle spread. Keep windows open, tape up vents, and use a construction air purifier to filter dust, particles, and contaminants. This protects your home and its occupants, including pets.

Implement a daily cleaning plan to manage debris during the renovation. Daily maintenance helps contain as much construction dust as possible. Dispose of debris at the end of each workday, sweep and vacuum floors, and clean the entry/exit point. Check surrounding rooms for dust and clean as needed. Wear protective goggles and respirator masks during renovation tasks, including debris management and cleanup.

Disposing of Debris Post-Renovation

 Unless you have a small remodeling project, disposing of dust and debris typically requires more than just bagging it up and throwing it into your trash bin. Many US municipalities have strict rules and regulations regarding C&D debris dumping. Research your local area’s requirements for transporting and dumping renovation debris at your local landfill.

When renting a dumpster, communicate with each company about the kinds of waste you intend to discard, making sure that all items and materials can be combined and accepted. It’s ideal to have a dumpster on location from the start to the end of the renovation so that you can dispose of waste as it accumulates. After the project is finished and the area has been cleaned, get in touch with the dumpster company to retrieve your rental.

Once the dumpster is weighed and transported to the landfill, you’ll get your final invoice. The final bill should correspond to the initial estimate, provided you have stayed within the weight limit or rental duration or included any restricted items in the container.

An alternative method for disposing of renovation waste is to engage a junk removal firm to gather your debris, whether it is pre-bagged or still accumulated at your worksite. Junk removal companies provide all-inclusive services, handling the heavy lifting and loading on your behalf, and may occasionally be more budget-friendly for smaller projects producing fewer than seven cubic yards of waste.
