When remodeling your home, the last thing you want is to get stuck with a mess.
Before you hire a contractor, ask about the cleanup policy, check references, and make sure the contract clearly addresses cleanup procedures.
Look for ways to minimize messiness, such as putting down carpet runners and covering brushes.
If your city or town won’t collect construction waste, make sure the contractor knows and disposes of it.
If the mess affects your health or ability to use your home, show the contractor and demand action.
If the company refuses, you can withhold payment, file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau or licensing board, or sue.
