When you choose replacement windows in Laguna Niguel, CA for your home, it’s very exciting to get that part of the process out of the way. Once the windows are ordered, you set up the installation and then, you wait. The windows come in and you probably talk to the installer by phone to get an idea of what you should expect. They might even recommend that you do certain things before they arrive, like remove window treatments, pictures from the walls, and other such things. However, there are some things that you might normally do for guests that you definitely do not need to do before window installation takes place. Here are a few to avoid:
If you hear your in-laws are coming for an impromptu visit, you can’t dust and vacuum fast enough, right? But the window installers? You definitely don’t need to do that for these guests and, in fact, you shouldn’t. Window installation takes some demolition and while the installers will clean up debris as best they can, you’re likely to have a layer of dust in certain areas of your house. Since you will need to dust and vacuum after they leave, there’s no point in doing it beforehand.
Hanging Laundry Outside
It’s nice to have a laundry line outside so your clothes can dry in the fresh air and have that clean scent to them. It saves energy, too, since you don’t have to use the dryer every time you do a load. And while you may have just finished some laundry, you don’t want to hang it outside (where you think it’s out of the way) before the installers arrive. Those clothes could very well be coated in saw dust by the end of the day and you’ll have to re-wash them anyway. Either throw them in the dryer this time or wait until the windows are complete.
Make The Beds
If you had any other guest coming, you would want to have the beds ready. The installers certainly won’t be using them, however, and you don’t want the dust from the windows on your new duvet. If you insist on making the beds, cover them in an old sheet that you can easily wash to remove the dust from the bed. Otherwise, you might want to wash the sheet when the installation is done to get everything off.
