Post-Construction Cleaning Tips

Construction is a messy business. Once building contractors leave a site, there is often copious amounts of dust, drywall and debris to deal with. If you need post construction cleaning services, Spotless CC can help! In this post, we’ll explore a few post-construction cleaning tips to help you get started.

Check for Safety Hazards

Safety is the biggest concern when it comes to post-construction clean-up. Therefore, familiarize yourself (and anyone you bring along to help) with the site and any potential safety hazards. Before you begin cleaning, check in with contractors and inspect each area for hazardous objects that may have been left behind. This includes nails, building materials and equipment. When entering a post-construction site, be sure to use protective eye-wear, hardhats and appropriate foot protection where necessary.

Bring the Right Supplies

You’ll likely need specialized equipment to deal with the kinds of dust and debris left behind after construction. While industrial-grade vacuum cleaners can be rented, a professional post-construction cleaning crew will have all the right supplies on hand, along with the knowledge and experience to get the job done quickly and safely.

Clean in Stages

Post-construction cleaning can feel overwhelming. As a result, it’s helpful to break this undertaking up into smaller tasks that can be performed one step at a time. This approach ensures thorough cleaning and helps maintain a sense of progress. Start by safely clearing out and organizing any major obstructions like equipment, then work from room to room.

Use a “top to bottom” approach for situations with excessive dust and drywall particles. As an example, clean areas like window and door frames first, then leave enough time between steps for dust to settle to the floor. It’s advisable to vacuum, rather than sweep, as sweeping kicks dust back up. Post-construction sites will likely need to be vacuumed multiple times as dust settles between cleaning passes.
