How to Get Rid of Your Renovation Dust
If you’re doing a home renovation, then the bane of your existence is probably dust. But don’t worry! We’ve got some cleanup tips for after your reno is complete!
1. Dusting Your Walls
When getting rid of renovation dust and debris on walls that have just been freshly painted, use a dry dust cloth or a dust mop, so you don’t mess up your new walls. If your wall has a textured surface, like cladding or stucco, simply vacuum the walls with a brush attachment before wiping them down. I’ll bet you didn’t know you could vacuum walls!
2. Dusting Your Floors
If you have carpeted floors, vacuum them thoroughly when getting rid of dust and debris–once is probably not enough. Do it two or three times if you really want that dust gone. If you have a hard surface floor vacuum first, then go over it with a damp mop. But be sure not to soak the floor, that might cause damage.
3. Dusting Your Vents
It’s a good idea to clean your vent covers too. Just unscrew them and wash them in soapy water. Be sure to dry them thoroughly, so the metal parts don’t rust.
