Many residents of Magnitogorsk have to move into apartments that need repairs. How to facilitate living among the dust and debris, experts told the City Kvadratov.ru.
Make repairs to the rooms
It is better to make repairs on the rooms. Of course, this is longer than finishing the whole apartment at once, but there will always be a place for sleeping and cooking. Experts advise starting with a bath, then repairing rooms, a kitchen and a corridor.
Buy a reliable apartment
Cheap apartment – not always quality. The cheaper housing, the more there are disadvantages. If the house is built with high quality, then the money and time to repair will take much less.
According to GorodKvvadratov.ru, now one-room apartments in Magnitogorsk are 1 086 000₽, two-room apartments – 1 630 000₽, three-room apartments – 2 253 000₽.
Disable communications only by agreement
We need to agree with the repair team when they turn off the light, electricity and heat. You can make a schedule of engineering work, and you can ask to notify in advance in order to have time to do everything necessary.
Keep things in cardboard boxes
To keep clothes and other things from getting dirty, they are best kept in cardboard boxes. Boxes can be taken at the hardware store or in stock. Furniture should be closed with plastic film, and the dishes should be wrapped with paper. Boxes can be put on the balcony and take things from there as needed.
Change shoes before entering the renovated room
If you walk around the apartment in one shoe, then dust and dirt will quickly spread throughout the rooms. It is possible to allocate separate slippers for the renovated premises, and you can walk in shoe covers. The working team is also concerned.
Often air out and tidy up the rooms
If the apartment is being renovated, it is always dusty and stuffy. Therefore, all windows should be open whenever possible. Dust accumulates even in renovated rooms, so wet cleaning should be done there. If you do not clean up, the dust will settle in the lungs, and this is harmful to health.
Agree with the workers to make noise only during the day
You can negotiate with the workers that they produce noisy work when the owners are not home. In the morning and in the evening you can glue the wallpaper, install plumbing and tile.
Go wash to relatives or friends
Do not be ashamed to ask permission from relatives or friends to use the bathroom or washing machine. You can also stock up on water for cooking, cleaning and washing hands.
Take breaks in repairs
It is not necessary to make repairs in the rooms without a break. You can schedule weekly or even monthly breaks to transport things and relax.
Before planning the cost and timing of repairs, you need to buy an apartment. On CityKvadratov.ru you can find more than 5000 ads for the sale of apartments in Magnitogorsk.
