Post Construction Cleanup

Everything you need to know about post-construction cleaning

The purpose of post-construction cleaning is to remove any construction dust, dirt, debris, or other contaminants from your environment. It is the process of removing any debris and construction materials left on your property after a new building or major renovation project.

The purpose of post-construction cleaning is to restore your home or business premises to their previous condition before the construction work. Professional cleaners should perform Post-construction cleanup while your property is still accessible and before the owner occupies it.

There are many different types of post-construction cleanups. Some companies offer general cleanup services, while others specialize in cleaning up after specific types of projects like commercial cleaning or residential cleaning. The key is to choose a company with experience with the type of job you need to do.

If you're hiring a general post-construction cleanup company to work on your home, here are some essential things to keep in mind:

  1. Expertise - Make sure the company you hire has experience with residential construction cleanup. You should ask about their specific training and certification for this kind of job.
  2. Insurance - Does the cleaning company carry adequate liability insurance? Insurance will protect you if something goes wrong during the cleanup process.
  3. References - Ask for references so you can talk with previous customers about their experience with the company.

Rough interior cleaning

Once the construction is finished, construction workers usually leave the site in a hurry. They will not clean up the mess they left behind, including toxic substances or wet paint.

After construction debris is removed, you need to remove all dust and dirt that is left over. Dust and dirt can cause health issues, especially for young children, who are more vulnerable to environmental factors.

Construction cleanup takes time and effort. You can hire professionals for this job or do it yourself with the help of some tools. But no matter what you do, make sure you use appropriate safety gear to avoid inhaling toxic particles while cleaning up.

Room-by-room cleaning

After construction work is complete, your home or business premises will be left with residue, dust, and dirt. These particles can be harmful when inhaled but are otherwise just an eyesore. Fortunately, you can prevent these problems by cleaning up thoroughly. The best way to do this is to have a room-by-room cleaning routine for your home.

After construction is complete, every room needs to be checked. Clean each room individually before moving on to the next one. Here is a room-by-room checklist for basic post-construction cleanup:

  • Kitchen - Wipe down all cabinets and surfaces. Vacuum and mop the floors. If necessary, wash the walls and ceiling as well as appliances and countertops. A thorough clean of the kitchen will also include removing food remnants from the refrigerator and freezer.
  • Bathroom - Take down any hanging hardware, such as towel racks or toilet paper holders, and wipe them down. Disinfect any fixtures that may have been exposed to construction dust and dirt. Remove trash and debris from the bathtub, shower, and toilet area. Clean both the tub/shower and toilet with a disinfectant cleaner or bleach solution. Scrub any remaining grout lines with a bleach solution if necessary. Install new toilet seat covers (if applicable).
  • Bedroom - Remove clothes from closets and drawers; wash garments that cannot be washed by hand; and vacuum. Remove dust; wipe down furniture; disinfect dressers, chests, nightstands, and headboards; and replace bedding (if applicable).
  • Living room - Remove all furniture from the room (if any). Clean thoroughly. Disinfect any furniture that may have been exposed to construction dust and dirt.

Touch-up cleaning

Construction sites can be dirty, dusty, and dangerous places. Touch-up cleaning is the process of spot cleaning the hard-to-reach areas that may have been damaged during the construction process. These areas can include walls, ceilings, crown molding, window frames, and baseboards. After the construction is complete, you'll need to do some touch-up cleaning to get the space looking like it did before construction began.

This usually involves sweeping, mopping, or vacuuming floors; wiping down walls; cleaning windows; taking out the trash; cleaning kitchen appliances, and doing any necessary laundry. Make sure you've collected all the tools you need before starting work — ladders, brooms, dustpans, rakes, and so on.

Touch-up cleaning is an essential part of making sure your property is safe and healthy for both you and your tenants.
