|Comment||Thank you Perry. this has helped a lot. Contractor actually did admit to my husband that he should have read the bag too. I don't know what the item is you are speaking of, assume some sort of plastic sheeting.....will ask the contractor if he has this and if not we will hang a plastic drop cloth, cover the air vent as you suggest, close the door leading to the master bedroom, to contain dust at least to that room, and then wipe down all the walls when finished. Contractor says he has a grout removing power tool and a small hand vac to use as he goes. Hope it works and hope the mess won't ruin what we hope the final result will be.|
