There's been a constant stream of projects around my home lately. They've ranged from exciting (new kitchen cabinets) to demoralizing (finding mold in our guest room ceiling), but they've all included a fair bit of construction dust. Along the way, I developed this checklist for cleaning up efficiently.
If you just finished a major renovation that required moving everything out of your home, you can probably skip a few steps. If your furniture was pushed into a pile and covered with plastic — as mine was for one project — you may need a bit more elbow grease.
