Dust and dirt are part of any home remodeling project. Replacing glass block windows, for instance, can create a lot of mess. However, there are ways you can ensure a mess-free job. 

Drop Cloths

Your contractor will likely spread drop cloths across your home in order to reduce the mess. The amount of cloth they use typically depends on the number of windows that are going to be replaced. If you only have a couple of new windows to install, you can expect to find the drop cloths in those particular areas. Your contractor will also clean up the drop cloths at the end of each day or set them aside where they won’t get in your way at night.

Plastic Wrap Coverings

Use tarps or plastic wrap coverings to protect various interior surfaces and items, such as couches, beds, shelves and others, from being covered in dust. Your contractor will dispose of the plastic wraps at the end of the day or once the project is completed.


Whether you’re installing regular windows or the glass block type, there’s bound to be a mess. If you have valuable items that you don’t want to risk getting dirty or damaged, you might want to plan for their storage. Consider moving them to your garage or basement.


Don’t forget about the old windows and other debris you’ll have to dispose of at the end. Typically, contractors have a cleanup plan for such jobs so you won’t have to worry about it. However, you should still be prepared for a round of cleaning to ensure that your home will be in pristine condition.
