Tips on Minimizing Cleanup During a Window Replacement

Replacing your old windows is a great way to enhance the beauty, security, comfort and energy efficiency of your home. However, window replacement can be a bit messy.

Here are some tips to help you contain the mess during a window replacement:

Close All the Doors

The proliferation of dust is the main problem during window replacement. To minimize the spread of dust, keep all the interior doors in your home closed during the project. This will make cleanup much easier once the installation is complete.

Seal Off the Work Area

Whether you’re replacing large picture windows or smaller double hung windows, seal off the work area to keep the mess isolated. Get some plastic drop sheets and hang them around the work area. Be sure that all sheets are airtight so you can contain the dust.

Remove Furniture and Electronics

It is good practice to remove furniture in the work area when installing new windows. Not only will doing so protect your belongings from accidental damage, it will also allow the installation crew to work more easily and efficiently. Also, consider removing electronics near the windows and covering up objects in the room with fabric or plastic to protect them from dust.
