Good remodeling contractors share tips on how to secure and protect your property during renovations. You have to take extra precautions since people will be in and out of your home.
Here are ways to ensure your home is protected during your project.
Choose a Reliable Contractor
Ask your friends and family for referrals when looking for a contractor. If you’re revamping your kitchen, research kitchen remodeling companies and make sure their credentials are valid. Consider their certifications and the organizations they are a part of. Check their employment process and ask them how they will make sure your home is safe during the renovation.
Keep Your Valuables
A safe can contain and keep your belongings protected. Bolt it down or keep it safely stowed away if it’s small enough to carry. Place your valuables behind a securely locked door or consider renting a storage garage for larger items.
Update Your Security System
Tearing down walls may affect the functionality of your security system. Get in touch with your provider to determine your options. Consider contacting a local security system provider if you don’t have one at home. A wireless system doesn’t run on electricity and will allow you to monitor your home anytime. We also recommend video surveillance so you can catch any unwanted behavior while your home is being renovated.
Set Safety Rules for Kids
Inform your children about the dangers during renovations and set safety rules. Teach them about strangers and to stay away from dangerous, sharp tools. Tell them to keep out of possibly dangerous chemicals, caused by renovations. Instruct them where they can and can’t stay during the project.
