The noise, dust and the people coming in and out of your home are to be expected during a kitchen, bathroom or basement remodeling project. These, however, can be particularly upsetting for your pets. Fortunately, you can improve the look and function of your home and still ensure the health and safety of your furry companions.
1. Microchip Your Pet
If you have a pet dog or cat, make sure it has a microchip. This way, the local shelter can identify your pet and notify you should it escape during your home renovation. To be sure, take a current photo of your pet should you need to provide identification.
2. Learn About the Project Schedules
Talk to your home remodeling contractor about the various project schedules. Learn which days demolition will occur and when painters will do their work. Find out which jobs scheduled on certain dates might impact your pets so you can keep them safe.
3. Maintain Your Normal Routine
You might get busy overseeing your home remodeling project, but that shouldn’t get in the way of keeping a routine with your pets. Spend time playing with them or going on long walks. Don’t forget to feed them, too.
4. Secure Your Pets
Your pets may be used to walking freely around your home. However, this won’t work for them while construction is in progress. Instead, choose a room far from the work zone, and keep them there until the pros are finished with the remodel. Include their bed, food tray and their toys. Place a note on the door to let everyone know that your pets are inside.
