5 Tips for Remodeling Your House When You Have Kids

Letting your kids run about in an active construction or remodeling site is quite dangerous and would hardly be a “Baby’s Day Out” scenario! Very often homeowners would rent a motel and stay there with their families until the remodeling work is complete for the sake of safety of their kids! This ends up costing a lot and these unnecessary expenses can be avoided if you follow these 5 tips to keep your kids safe during a remodeling project!

It’s gonna get loud

Remodeling work is often associated with the use of heavy machinery .It’s definitely going to get loud around the house and it gets more difficult with babies around! So here is what we at Daniel Mackey do! We would install temporary soundproofing in your baby’s room which is much more cost effective than renting a motel. This will definitely reduce the noise entering your baby’s room and he/she can have a sound sleep. We also provide mufflers for  children who are over the age of 5 to reduce the noise.

Strategize and execute

A good remodeling project should always have a solid plan and execution. Plan your remodel when your kids are off at school so that all the heavy work gets done when they’re not around. When they’re back by noon or eve, you can shift to other parts of the remodel that don’t involve much noise or the use of heavy machinery.

Dust free remodel

Dust is a major concern for all homeowners. At Daniel Mackey, we dust proof the remodeling area and prevent any dust or fine particles from escaping the site. So as long as you or your kids are not inside the remodeling area, you would not have to worry about dust. But, if your kids are interested in knowing what’s going on inside, we will provide them with dust proof masks so that they can watch and maybe learn a few tricks of the trade!

A bad workman blames his tools

Being professional contractors, we never leave our tools lying around during or after a day’s job. If you plan on doing your remodel by yourself, you should be careful with your tools too! Dangerous equipments like nail guns, saws etc. are quite risky when left unattended. Make sure that the tools are kept out of children’s reach and are disconnected from the electric sockets!

Let your kids have a go at it

They say curiosity killed the cat! But in this case it’s better to satisfy the child’s curiosity before the remodel starts! So, let them have a go at the tools under proper guidance so that they get bored of it soon and allow the remodel to go on as planned!

So if you follow these 5 tips, not only would you save a lot of cash by not renting a motel, you would also get to monitor the remodeling work!
