So construction is going to start soon and I need to get the construction site cleaned up and ready for the crew. I have a few options to explore when deciding what to do with my “stuff” while they’re working in the basement for a couple months.
Options for cleaning out the basement:
NOTE: If you have any concern that your items could get damaged or dusty, it’s best to get it out of the basement. The crew takes precaution to be kind and clean, but can’t guarantee that nothing will happen.
What we chose to do:
We do not have a lot of large items to get out of the way, just a lot of boxes. We did get rid of items by giving some items to family and friends. Some our items went in the garbage and others were donated. I did take some luggage and winter attire up to a bedroom because I knew I would want them while we were under construction. Per our blue print we have two large storage rooms. In one we built storage shelves according to the plan and put everything on the shelves and covered with painters plastic. I did tape and tuck the plastic to keep dust from getting in them.
This did work well. When uncovering everything you have to take it off slow and roll into it-self, as the dust that did settle will fluff into the air.
