Post-Renovation Tips You Shouldn’t Forget About



Post-Renovation Tips You Shouldn’t Forget About -Having your home renovated is something that, though it may take some time (depending on the number of rooms you’re having seen to), is always worth it in the end, as you’re left with a brand new home or collection of rooms that not only look great and reflect your personality, they will also help to increase the resale value of your home when you eventually choose to sell up.

There are many websites and articles out there dealing with tips and ideas surrounding home renovations, which is why the focus below will be on tips regarding areas you should explore after your renovation takes place. These tips are, in no specified order:

Removing Rubbish from Your Home

This should be your number one concern the moment your renovation is complete as, simply put, you cannot live in a home surrounded by rubbish and debris accumulated over the course of your home remodelling.

Luckily, this is much easier than it may seem. There are numerous companies across the county that offer to take this rubbish away for you, saving you the time and stress of having to separate your rubbish into separate piles (certain forms of recycling; glass, metal, and plastics for example), as well as the time it would take you to pile this into your car and take it to a local facility that can deal with it.

Search online for a service of this nature in your city. Whether you need a company offering rubbish removal in Sydney or elsewhere, there’s a good chance that a quick search will help you find what you’re looking for. Make sure, when choosing between your available options, that you focus on quality of service as much as you do on price.

Wiping Down Surfaces

Although you will have been wiping down your surfaces as you went along if you were still living in your home during the renovation process, once the builders and everybody else involved in the process have left, it’s important for you to do one last big wipe-down, as this can help remove the last particles of dust that have accumulated around your home.

Needless to say, you’ll need to make sure you have a number of reliable cleaning resources on hand for this process, and you’ll need to consider every single possible place dust and grime could have gotten into during the course of your renovation, such as:


   On top of your kitchen cupboards; they won’t have to be sparkly clean, but for your own health remove as much of this dust as possible.
   In your curtains; even if your curtains don’t typically show dust, there’s a good chance it’s there.
   In hidden corners of your rooms; corners cut off from the rest of the room due to furniture, for example, are prime dust collection points.


Ensuring Everything’s Paid-For

It may sound simplistic, but when you have a large number of contractors working on your home at the same time it can become easy to simply forget about one until you receive a bill many weeks or months later, demanding the money owned to them alongside some hefty interest.

Once all your contractors have left, go through all of your finances to ensure everything has been paid up and you no longer owe anyone anything. Better to do this now than months down the line.

In conclusion, home renovations often take some time, but that doesn’t mean you should forget what you have to do once the renovation is over, namely removing all the rubbish that has accumulated around your home, wiping down every surface, and ensuring everything’s been paid for in a timely manner.
