A house under going a renovationIt is impossible to eliminate dust completely when remodelling a home. However, you still need to find ways to control it and keep it from migrating to other parts of the house. The dust, which may come from the sand, cement and other construction materials used, may pose risks to the health of both the workers and your family. That is why there are many dust control products available to provide families with a safe, comfortable and habitable space even with an ongoing renovation project.

Safety and comfort

Keeping your family and the workers safe is very important, especially since the accumulation of dust presents a lot of health risks. Construction and remodelling projects can produce a lot of debris and dirt that are potentially toxic when inhaled in excessive amounts or when there is accidental contact with the eyes or skin.

Imagine your children playing outside and being exposed to all the dust. Young children, as well as elderly people, are more likely to develop health problems from exposure to high levels of dust. Possible effects on health include eye irritation, cough, sneezing, asthma, and other serious respiratory symptoms. For people with chronic obstructive airways disease (COAD) or emphysema, in particular, even a small dust concentration can make their symptoms worse.

Habitable space

Controlling dust during remodelling removes the hassle of having to live away from your home. You must understand the cost of living in a hotel for several days. Being involved in the dust control also lets you have a firsthand knowledge of what is happening during a renovation project.

A healthy remodelling environment is vital so you can provide your family with a safe and liveable space.
