When you choose the perfect replacement windows in Simi Valley, CA, it’s exciting to think that in a matter or one or two days (depending on how many windows you need), the installation will be complete and you’ll have the windows in place. However, between those two things, the installation has to take place. It’s best for you to be on hand and at home when that happens in case the installers have questions or run into any issues. While it can be nice to be home for a day or two, getting things done around the house, there are things you probably won’t want to do while the installation takes place. Here are a few to avoid:
While it’s tempting to spend the day in the kitchen, baking and freezing bread, cookies and other items, that can be tainted through the installation process. There’s going to be a lot of dust floating around the house and you don’t want that debris to make its way into what you are cooking. If the workers are sealed off in the basement or upstairs, you could get away with doing a few things, but once they are on the main floor, call the kitchen off limits to yourself for these types of projects.
Important Phone Calls
Once you hear a window come out and go in, you will know what it sounds like. But as the installers work, you never know when they’re going to start hammering, use a drill, or do something else that is noisy. If you have to make an important business call, take your cell phone down the block or wait until tomorrow. The installers will likely take a lunch break as well so you can put calls off until it’s less noisy.
When you’re home, which likely isn’t normal for you in the middle of the week, it’s also tempting to clean up things that you don’t normally get to clean. You could get in those corners and really scrub the dust bunnies down. While that might make you feel good, it’s a futile task because the installation process will spread dust. The installers will clean up what they can, but you’ll still want to go over the house with the vacuum and a dust rag when they are done. There’s no point in cleaning something that is going to need it again hours later.
