Ok so we have had a full rewire and are now having redecoration done throughout. Trying to live here too which is hell. How on earth do you get your house properly clean when it's finished. My wood floor has been hoovered and moped tonight but still looks filthy. The plaster dust is driving me mad.
Once they are all done it will be a couple of days cleaning and will be fine. I thought I would never get the dust out but we are done now and the house is back to normal. I feel for you - I lived in our house through a year of extension and renovation last year. Nearly drove me insane!
