Bathroom Gutting Tips for Bradenton ResidentsIf you feel confident the project is worthwhile, you’ll need to tear out the space to begin the process. Now, here’s where the labor really becomes intense. Sure, design is a big concern, but getting through the actual tear-down is tough. So, here are some helpful bathroom gutting tips you can use:
- Keep kids and pets away. Kids and pets are quite curious when it comes to such activity. But, they don’t belong anywhere near a construction zone, even if it’s in their own house.
- Turn off and disconnect the water and electric supply. Start by turning off the water and electric supplies and then disconnect the supply line(s). Depending on how the bathroom is configured, there are probably a few supply lines coming into the space.
- Disassemble the toilet. With the water off, flush the toilet and then take it apart. If you are not going to remove the fixture, cover it with a drop cloth. If you need to temporarily move it out-of-the-way, don’t disassemble it but unbolt it from the floor and carry it out whole.
- Remove all fixtures. Strip all the fixtures from the walls (medicine cabinet, towel racks, and more). Then, remove the vanity first, toilet next, and finally, pull out the tub/shower. This will create more space as you remove each one so it’s easier to get the larger fixtures out.
