Whether you decided to redesign a retail space, add-on to an existing office building, or build your own commercial property from the ground up, there’s always a huge sense of accomplishment when the project is done. There are also massive amounts of dust, dirt, and discarded building supplies.
Post-construction cleanings are different from other types of cleanings. After months of contractors, subcontractors, and miscellaneous other people walking in, out and around a construction site, it ends up looking like a wasteland. Here’s how to transform your new property from construction chaos to welcoming oasis.
- Debris removal. The construction might be finished, but the site still looks hectic. Not only will there be lumber, drywall, nails, screws, and potentially hazardous materials lying around, there will also be food wrappers, water bottles, and other assorted trash everywhere.
- Tackle the dust. Once the dust settles (pun intended), you’ll notice it’s everywhere – the doors, the windows, the lights, the floors. Literally everywhere.
- Wash the walls. It might seem like gravity pulls dust down, but construction walls become just as dirty and dusty as the rest of the site.
- Do the windows. Newly installed windows will almost always end up dotted with paint, cement, spackle, dirt, or a combination of them all.
- Final details. Arguably the most important step is cleaning and polishing all the little things – the door knobs, light switches, baseboards, and outlets.
