Discover how to get allergy relief pre-planning your next construction
project.
If you suffer from allergies, the probability of suffering an allergy attack is
significantly increased when you are exposed to dust. Guess what happens when
you start a remodeling project and you do not take the necessary measures to limit
the amount of dust produced.

Nearly all of us have experienced allergies at one time or another. The runny nose,
itchy, watery eyes, and sneezing. Symptoms of allergies can strike anytime or
anyplace, depending on what the allergy trigger is for an individual. If it is dust and
dust mites, take all the necessary precautions.

The moment you start construction, dust will “flow” everywhere. Your home will attract
more dust and it will become a dust collector. You will not be able to clean up. Trying
to clean the dust during a house remodeling project is like shoveling snow during a
snow storm. It is losing battle.

That is why allergy proofing during any house remodeling project is extremely
Some of the most effective measures to take are:

  • Plan you project in detail. Ask your licensed general contractor which
    measures he is going to take to limit the dust. Do NOT forget to inform
    your residential contractor if you have any allergies or asthma.
  • Keep children away from the remodeled areas
  • If possible consider living somewhere else close to your home. In this way,
    you will be able to stay away from the dust and stay abreast of the
    remodeling progress.
  • The remodeled area needs to be enclosed and sealed. Your contractor
    should be hang plastic sheeting and use barriers to contain the dust to the
    work areas. In addition, the HVAC ducts will need to be closed to prevent
    the dust from going to the rest of the house.  After the remodeling project is
    done, it might be a good idea to have your air ducts cleaned.
  • Have the appropriate ventilation. If possible set up a fan blowing out of a
    window away from the work area.
  • Clean up the work area every day before wrapping up the day.
  • Use a dust mask in the construction area.
  • Change Air filters after the remodeling is complete.
  • Covering your furniture with plastic material will limit the dust on your
    furniture.


If you are allergy sufferer and are about to start your home improvement project,
it will be to your advantage to pre-plan with your residential contractor how to
dust proof the working area.
