While it can be a hassle, there are steps you can take to ensure that you can still prepare meals in a breeze and steer clear of potential risks and accidents. As your premier home remodeler in Danville, CA, Absolute Plumbing and Drain is here to help. Here are some tips to help you get your home ready for a kitchen remodel.
Disconnect Kitchen Lines
Don’t forget to disconnect your electricity, plumbing, and gas lines. Also, detach water and drain pipes to avoid water leakage and flooding during the project. If you’re unsure how to do so, we can take care of this for you as part of our home remodeling services.
Create a Temporary Kitchen
Some people are lucky to have an outdoor kitchen they can use throughout the renovation. If you are not one of those people, consider setting up a temporary kitchen in the living room, dining room, or any other spacious room. Consider selling, donating, or disposing of your old or damaged appliances if you’re installing newer models for the project.
Pack All the Essentials
Take all the items you use every day, such as pots, tea kettle, coffee maker, and cooking utensils, into your temporary kitchen. For your convenience, use disposal cups, plates, and dinnerware, and prepare storage containers for leftovers. As your trusted remodeling company, we can help you pack your essentials and ensure to take protective measures.
