First, inform yourself about the health effects of seven types of dust, they are: household dust (common asthma trigger), fugitive dust, construction dust (created by installing or cutting material containing volatile organic compound or VOC), lead dust, asbestos fibers and demolition dust. Purchase the applicable masks for the type of work you are going to be doing. These masks are affordable, easy to get and use. Read the label so you know more detail about what protection that you need. However, you must know that this mask doesn`t protect you from chemical vapors. Only a respirator with appropriate cartridge can protect from vapors.

Make sure that CLEANLINESS is your priority. It is not important for your safety and for those around you. If you get into the habit of leaving an disorganized worksite, it makes it all that more difficult when it comes to building and remodeling as you will be disorganized.
Building and remodeling will involve the use of many tools. Before using tools, make sure that you have the right tools and that you know how to use it properly. Read the manual or instruction then adjust it first to check that all the safety features are in place.
Do not take on a building or remodeling task if you do not feel that you can handle it. Work on what you know and what you feel comfortable with. If it is too dangerous, just leave it to a professional. For example, be careful with gas pipe, as it is flammable and also prone to leakage. No matter how big or small your building and remodeling job is safety must be the first priority.
