Repair in an apartment is a necessary matter, but not always the most pleasant.
Few people enjoy the complete destruction,Dust and confusion. Of course, at the initial stage, you need to prepare mentally, adjust yourself and your thoughts for the best, and start working safely.
Decomposing their actions in stages, you will have goals, and it will be much easier to decide on this feat.
Think about the amount of work. Will it be the repair of several rooms or the apartment as a whole. Having decided on the volume, consider the design of the room. Consult with relatives and friends, perhaps they will throw some good ideas of the interior. Having thought everything visually, it is necessary to calculate materially. This is necessary so that it does not happen that due to lack of finance, repairs have risen for a month, or even a year.
The first stage of the work. Free the room from furniture. Usually repairs begin with a kitchen area and a bathroom. Rooms should be absolutely clean, no hinged boxes or bedside tables, tables, should not remain. If you are not going to change the floor covering, cover it with oilcloth and fix around the perimeter with paint tape (as it can be removed without a trace in the future). Remove all sockets and switches, having preliminary disconnected them from the electric system. Also remove the ceiling light (chandelier), insulating the wires.
The second stage of the work. Prepare wall and ceiling surfaces. Remove old wallpaper, paint if any. The ceiling must also be perfectly clean. Consider replacing window frames and water pipes. Right now.
The third stage of work. Apartment decoration. Align the floor, it is with him that you need to start repairing the room. If a new screed is needed, it can take quite a long time. Align the walls and ceiling along the entire perimeter, using a putty.
The fourth stage of work. Final work. Begin finishing the ceilings, walls and flooring.
