Construction zones can be dangerous and, when associated with a home renovation or project, can result in damage if you’re not properly prepared. Construction projects come with risks, and many things can go wrong. Because of this, your area needs to be thoroughly prepared from the get-go. Before work begins, ensure that your valuables, furniture, and other household items are secure.

In most cases, construction damage is accidental, and professional contractors do their very best to ensure the safety of your home. And, luckily, there are lots of great products on the market designed specifically to keep your home safe. Companies like Trimaco exist specifically to keep your home damage-free. Here are just a few of their products designed to protect your home during construction.

Prevent Damage During Construction With These 3 Products

Prevent Damage During Construction With These 3 Products

Dust Containment

Construction zones get messy. The vast majority of such projects result in large amounts of dust and contaminants, which can damage your home’s air quality. Whether you’re sawing wood, sanding, or beyond, you want to protect your air quality. Dust and debris inevitably cover carpeting, furniture, and other possessions, and you definitely don’t want to breathe it in. Trimaco offers a comprehensive line of dust containment barriers that are both easy to set up and use. You can find them at your local hardware store, and they are available at Wal-Mart locations, as well.

Breathable Surface Protectant

We’ve mentioned it before, but you want (and need) to protect your flooring during a construction project. Perhaps you just installed a new hardwood floor, and the curing process isn’t complete. In cases like this, you need to go beyond generic floor protection materials. Opt for something more breathable like Trimaco X-Board. This unique product gives your flooring the airflow it needs to complete the curing process. Even once laid on the floor, the material offers breathability.

Flame Retardant Protection

Some construction projects utilize flammable materials. In situations like these, you need to have a completely flame retardant barrier. Products like Aqua Shield from Trimaco cover all surface areas with a breathable layer of cushioned protection. Aqua Shield offers slip-free protection, can withstand the weight of heavy construction materials, and protects your home from fire damage.

Construction Comes with Risk Be – Prepared!

Any homeowner embarking on a construction or renovation project knows that there is an element of risk involved, no matter what. However, taking the steps to keep your home safe from damage before the project begins ensures your project gets off on the right foot. And, with great products and an expert team of contractors, you’ll easily minimize the risk.
