Precautions for renovation and decoration of old houses

1. Do a closed water test for the toilet
When renovating an old house, the toilet should first be closed water test to check the effect of waterproof treatment. The method is: stop the floor drain, put 2 to 5 cm of water in the bathroom, and observe whether there is any leakage within 24 hours. If there is water leakage, you must re-waterproof it and wait until the ground is completely dry before laying tiles, otherwise the ground may crack.
2. Treatment of water and circuit transformation
Water and electric circuit renovation is the most complicated and important thing when renovating old houses. The waterways of old houses are mostly galvanized pipes, which are easy to rust. It is best to replace all the pipes within the water diversion valve of the main pipeline. If the original sewer pipes and floor drains need to be modified, check whether the old pipes are unblocked before the new pipes are connected to the old pipes. After the waterway reconstruction is completed, the water pipe needs to be pressure tested with a pressure machine. The circuit transformation of the old house will generally abolish the original aging circuit. The newly designed circuit generally has 3 to 4 groups of circuits to ensure one way for the air conditioner, socket, lighting, and bathroom bath electric water heater, and install a leakage protector in each group of circuits. .
3. Paint the walls, be beautiful and environmentally friendly
The walls of old houses will crack and peel, so when renovating the walls, you must do the basic treatment in advance. In addition, aesthetics and environmental protection are also a major point in the renovation of old walls, so you might as well choose diatom mud that can purify the air. The Lanshe diatom mud containing “Lanshe No. 1” decomposition material can not only adsorb, but also decompose harmful gases such as formaldehyde. At the same time, the Lanshe diatom mud also has thousands of colors and varieties, which are made by hand craftsmen. It is an ideal choice for creating a healthy and beautiful home space!
4. Replace aluminum alloy or plastic steel doors and windows
The doors and windows of old houses are mostly made of wood and iron. If the wooden doors and windows are not deformed or cracked, they can be re-decorated and refurbished and used again. If they are deformed, they must be removed and re-made. If the paint of iron doors and windows falls off or the main body cracks, it is recommended to replace them with aluminum alloy or plastic steel materials, which can play a better role in sealing, sound insulation and heat insulation.
5. Add essential switches and sockets
The reserved switches and sockets in old houses are generally not enough. Generally speaking, at least 3 sockets should be installed in a room, no less than 15 sockets and no less than 8 switches in a two-bedroom house. The height of the switches in the same room should be the same. Generally, the switch should be 1.4 meters away from the ground and the socket should be 0.3 meters away from the ground. You can consider installing dual-control switches in the bedroom.
