What does Post Construction Cleaning Include?

Living with builders while construction or remodeling is being done is one thing, and cleaning up the mess afterward is another. We like to believe that the latter one is more stressful. If you want to enjoy the fruits of the labor of constructors, there is tons of additional work that needs to be done before the final turn-over of the key. This is where we come in. GM Cleaning offers renovation cleaning service, carpet cleaning, move-in/move-out cleaning services so that every grime of dust, dirt is cleaned up thoroughly using specialized cleaning tools, making your home safe and liveable.

What is post-construction cleaning?

Even if constructors are mindful about being tidy while at work, there are bound to be dirt, dust, sharp objects, and scuff marks here and there. Post-construction cleaning comes after the construction or renovation project is done. Expert cleaners with effective cleaning products, specialized cleaning equipment, remove every speck of airborne dirt, particles, grimes settled on every surface from walls, windows, furniture, window coverings, hardware, appliances, light fixtures, ceilings, furnishing, office equipment, bathroom cleaning, washroom surface, carpet cleaning, and hard surface flooring, etc. Keeping Covid-19 in mind, we do through sanitization and disinfection on the entire space after the renovation project.

Phases of post-construction cleaning

  • Rough cleaning: Most of the construction sites need rough cleaning of some sort. After constructors remove the trash, debris, and hazardous materials after completion of the project, rough cleaning is done. If new flooring is installed, cleaners sweep, dust, scrub walls, wash interior windows to make every surface spotless and clean.
  • Light cleaning: The most sought-after cleaning phase clients opt for as it requires rigorous cleaning using top-notch equipment. In this phase, rooms like restrooms, kitchen are cleaned. Every sink, toilet, and cabinet is thoroughly checked and cleaned before clients move in. From removing stickers from windows, glass areas, doors, walls to heavy-duty cleaning- all are done with care by professionals.
  • Final cleaning: This phase may take the shortest time to complete and yet is very important. After the major cleaning is done in the second phase, this takes place after a few days to finally clear up dust, debris that may still be there on some surfaces. In this phase, detailed, minute cleaning like removing fingerprints, smudges, and imperfections from areas where normal Joe would not think of cleaning is done.
