Livable remodeling is the concept that remodeling need not be painful for the client. It means utilizing the best practices to ensure your home remains organized and dust free during the project. Your livability is our top concern during a remodeling project. As a clean contractor we take pride in limiting the biggest threat to livable remodeling: Dust.
Your livability is our top concern during a remodeling project. We take pride in being the first and only contractor in Tallahassee to provide a worry free remodeling experience by using the BuildClean Dust Control System, the newest dust control technology, as part of our dust control plan.
Why is dust control important?
Remodeling projects can stir up job site dust that can include:
- dirt and debris
- organic matter
- drywall dust
- cement dust
- silica and sawdust
- sore eyes
- burning in the nose and throat
- headaches, or fatigue
- In large concentrations construction dust can worsen allergies, respiratory illnesses (such as asthma), and other conditions.
Here are three things you need to ask a contractor about dust during a remodeling project:
1) How much dust will the project generate?
You’re not alone in worrying about this – about 90 percent of homeowners stay in their homes during projects. The best contractors will have a dust control plan that includes the latest technology and best practices. No plan? No deal.
3) How will the contractor make the plan work?
Our Livable Remodeling System
McManus Kitchen and Bath takes great pride in our worry-free remodeling experience and we took notice when we started hearing a manufacturing partner of ours talk about “livable remodeling”. The concept is simple, complete the project in a manner that makes living through the work acceptable and makes sure that all aspects of the job, including dust management and indoor air quality, are being addressed.
You are not just investing in a job well done, you also would like to maintain a great home life during the project as well. To provide you and your family with the best remodeling experience, from start to finish, we invested in the newest dust control technology to incorporate into our dust control plan and best practices.
We use the BuildClean dust control system (pictured above), in combination with ZipWall barriers, dust collection mats and specialized drop cloths on every job to make every project “livable” and to ensure that our clients highly satisfied
The BuildClean System
The BuildClean system is an industrial HEPA filter that “scrubs” the air. It recycles the air through its two stage filters at a rate of 600 CFM (cubic feet per minute). That’s about 100 times more than your average bath fan and it can recycle all the air in a typical bathroom in under two minutes. Using the BuildClean Dust Control System we will capture and remove up to 90 percent of airborne dust that accumulates during your remodeling project.
Zip Wall Barriers
McManus Kitchen and Bath incorporates a number of best dust management practices along with the BuildClean Dust Control System including the use of ZipWall dust barriers and specialized drop cloths and sticky mats.
