Answer: a mask and protective glasses, gloves, hearing protection and tarpaulins for the furniture.

This varies greatly depending on the work or repairs you carry out in your home. Depending on the scenario, it will be necessary to wear a protective mask against dust (particles of wood, paint and metal) or to avoid breathing solvents. Or wear protective glasses against volatile particles or splinters (not to mention the mask when using a blowtorch), gloves to protect your hands from unavoidable cuts or dangerous products, but also hearing protection against noise (for example, a sander or an electric planer), etc. In addition, it is also preferable to protect your furniture and personal belongings, by covering them with used tarpaulins or sheets.
