Before an installer arrives, you will need to clear the area where the installers are going to be working. This is to protect your furniture from any eventuality and give space for the work to take place.

As an extra safety precaution you may cover your furniture and floor with a protective dust sheet. A good installer will lay dust sheets on the floor and over your furniture to protect it, so you do not have to worry about this step.

During a renovation, the room will get very dusty especially if a knockout of what is existing is taking place. It can be helpful to allow the easiest accessible route available for the fitters with sufficient ground clearance near the chimney stack, if a flue system is required.
