Growing up, construction or remodeling was something I did not do. Perhaps in part because my mother always just hired someone to do the work. She liked making spaces pretty, but I guess she did not care for the labor involved in this kind of work. Now, as an adult, and as home owner, I decided that I would learn how to do many of the needed house repairs – Construction cleanup Sparta NJ –. One of the biggest lessons I learned early on, was that preparation was key in these projects. A top priority is always to ensure that the area I am working on is well sealed with plastic sheets, and that there is a rug at every entrance of the project – the rug, mat, towels, etc., will help keep the dirt or dust on the bottom of the boots from being tracked through the house.
Any work that involves walls will create dust. There are two reasons for this, 1) Sheetrock is basically compressed dusk, so cutting into it is messy. Wikipedia has this explanation of Drywall (the generic term) “Drywall is a panel made of calcium sulfate dihydrate with or without additives and normally pressed between a facer and a backer. It is used to make interior walls and ceilings.” It makes for pretty strong material for a wall, when it is in one piece, but break it, and there is dust everywhere.
And, 2) Before painting the walls, you will always need to use some spackling. Spackling goes on wet, and it dries like smooth plaster, but it creates dust when you sand it to smooth it out before you can paint it. If you do not sand it, you will see the imperfections – paint is a poor substitute for spackle. – Construction cleanup Sparta NJ – I found out the hard way that paint does not hide imperfections. Spackle has to be used to at least fill in the indents made by the screws that hold up the sheet to the studs. And, unless you are a total pro, you will likely have to do some sanding, and create a little dust.
