Ways To Control The Dust During Your Kitchen Remodeling

If you've decided to take on a kitchen remodeling project, you'll be excited to get the project done and see how it changes the look of the space. Depending on what you're doing, you may be in for a messy time. If you're doing any drywall work or sanding of any nature, drywall dust and sawdust can coat virtually every surface in the kitchen, requiring a lengthy cleanup process once you're done with the actual work. While it's impossible to eliminate the dust completely, there are a number of things that you can do to keep the dust under control as much as possible. Here are some suggestions.

Deal With Your Cabinets

If you're leaving your kitchen cabinets intact during the renovation, there are a couple different ways to proceed. You want to limit the chance of dust coating the cabinet contents; when this is the case, cleaning them cabinets afterward takes more time than it would otherwise. One approach is to empty each of the cabinets and place the contents — food, dishes, and other items — in an area of the house away from the dust. When the cabinets are empty, they'll be quicker and easier to dust out afterward. Alternatively, you can use painter's tape to seal the edges of the cabinets to keep dust out.

Vacuum While You Sand

Whether you're sanding drywall compound or wood, you'll be making a mess that can take lots of time to clean up. You can minimize the amount of dust that flies around the kitchen and settles on each surface, however, by having a helper hold the nozzle of a vacuum — preferably a shop vacuum that is better for picking up dust — directly below where you're sanding. While this won't catch 100 percent of the dust particles, it will reduce a significant amount of the dust that settles throughout the kitchen.

Set Up A Fan

A fan set up in front of a window helps to bring air inside your home. However, if you turn the fan so that it's facing outward, the fan will help to pull air out of the kitchen. If you have a window or, better yet, a sliding door, set up a large box-style fan in front of it. Turn the fan on its highest setting. While the steady hum might be a little annoying, it serves as a reminder that the fan is working hard to pull air out of the kitchen — and take lots of dust particles with it.
