It’s true, you don’t have to worry about the main task that is replacing the old with and installing the new windows. But there are few preparations that must be done to ensure that the whole work is completed neatly and properly.
Clear the way for the window installers
The first thing that you must do is make the area where the window will be installed clean. The window installers should not get any obstacles while working. Then they will not only slow down but there may be some problem related to completing the task properly. Even some of your valuables may break. Thus, remove everything inside and outside the window so that the area is clean and they can work properly.
The installer may need to set up their equipment. You must provide enough space to them so that they can do that task properly.
Remove window treatments and wall decorations
It’s not only that you have to clear the floor area, you must also clean the walls and window treatment before the installation is done. If you do not remove curtains, blinds and sheers then they may get damaged when the work is done. Before removing the hardware from windows you must discuss it with the installers that whether it is necessary. If it is not required, then it is best not to remove them. Also it is necessary to remove the walls decorations that are near the windows to ensure that the place is clean.
Decide what should be covered
The window installers have a process of doing things. They will do their best to make a less mess out of things at your place. Still, you must remember that it’s your duty to ensure that your belongings are safe. For this you have to cover up different things before the work is started. This is because when they will work there will be too much dust. If you cover up things then this dust will be removed just by removing the coverings.
