As a homeowner, a major remodeling project can be one of the most stressful activities that you experience. You already know you’ll need to adjust your life, but are you prepared to ensure a livable home construction experience for you and your family?
DUST—IT’S MORE THAN JUST A NUISANCE.
It’s the #1 threat to livability for homeowners.
During your remodeling project, dust will get everywhere. On floors, furniture, glassware, dishes, even your toothbrush. Studies have shown that homes being remodeled have five to eight timesthe amount of particles in the air than homes that are not being remodeled.
But dust is more than an inconvenience—it poses a serious threat to your family’s health, your pets and your belongings.
Dust settles in your body in three areas: mouth, throat and lungs. This can trigger asthma attacks in children and adults, allergic reactions, problems for people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and more
Jobsite dust can contain hazardous materials like asbestos, arsenic or lead, which can have an adverse effect on the health and safety of pets that are in the home during construction.
Particles from sawing, scraping and sanding are small, which means they can easily work their way into your valuable belongings—and stay there.
