Home Remodeling: Controlling Dust and Keeping Your Home Clean

Home Remodeling: Controlling Dust and Keeping Your Home Clean


– Hello everyone, it’s Todd Bachmann with Mosby Building Arts and
I’m currently on site at a kitchen remodeling
project that we’re doing. And I just wanted to
give you guys a look in to see what it’s like during the middle of a construction project or remodel. And to show you how Mosby
tries to keep the job site as clean as possible
during the construction. Obviously when you’re
doing a remodeling project it can kick up a lot of
dirt and dust and debris. But you want to make
sure that that doesn’t get to other areas of the house. So there’s a few ways that
we try to help mitigate that. I just wanted to show you a few ways. So come on, let’s take a look around. Okay, the first thing I want to show you is what’s called the HEPA machine. This is a machine that
sucks out all of the dust out of the air, filters
it through the machine, and then kicks in back out of the house. We use this obviously to
keep as much dust and dirt that’s being kicked up out
of the air from getting into other areas of the house
as well as the main area that we’re doing the remodeling in. Okay, next I want to show you Ram Board. So this is a heavy duty floor
protection that we lay down throughout the house to make sure the floors are being protected
as we’re walking around, bringing in materials,
hammering, and doing everything that comes with the remodeling project. It’s taped together by this
special tape that you see here. That allows us to put
multiple pieces together and conform it the way that we want. And finally, what we do is we hang up dust protection sheets in the
openings of the walls or doors. That way the dust and debris
does not get into other areas of the house and it’s all
contained to the main space. And that brings us back
to the HEPA machine which then filters out all
the dust out of the house. Okay, so I hope that
was an interesting look into what it’s like to be in the middle of the remodeling project
and how we help control the dust and keep the area clean. I’ll be checking in later on
the project when it’s finished to see how everything turned out. So be sure to be on the lookout for that. Thank you. – Hi, I’m Mark McClanahan. I’m the president of Mosby Building Arts. Thanks for watching our video. If you enjoyed it, go ahead and
