3 Cleaning Tips to Remember After a Construction Project

Renovating your home or upgrading a portion of your living space is often a dream come true. Once the contractors are gone and the dust settles however, you may be left with more of a mess than you anticipated. Thankfully, Madam Clean Services is here to help. We are happy to help you manage your post renovation cleaning in an efficient and safe manner. If you are not sure where to start, our top three tips below can help ensure your cleaning project is successful.

Always Put Safety First

Cleaning up after construction is different than a typical home cleaning project. In most cases, construction cleanup projects will have hazardous materials on site that otherwise are not usually found in a home. Paint, solvents, sharp implements, carts and more can be found around the property following a renovation. It is important that these are handled in a safe manner to prevent injury or damage to your home.

Before the cleaners arrive you should take a walk around the area to get an idea of the layout and dangers involved. Prior to the arrival of the cleaning crew, let them know what chemicals, equipment and hazards to expect. This will let them prepare with the proper protective gear and cleaning projects to get the job done right the first time. If there is still work going on in the area, you can speak with the contractors to see if there is anything important that you should pass along to the cleaning crew.

Supplies and Equipment

Cleaning at a construction site requires much sturdier equipment than usual. Standard vacuums not only won’t clean up the mess, but they most likely will break under pressure. Regular home dust and debris are much smaller in quantity and variety. After renovation debris can range from broken glass and bits of wood, to nails and drywall fibers. As such, you will need to ensure that your cleaning crew has industrial-grade equipment when they arrive on the scene. For large areas an auto-scrub machine will also come in handy.

Aside from the machinery, the range and quantity of cleaning products will also need to be upgraded. A regular-sized home may only require a few ounces of cleaning products and a handful of rags to make the place spotless. The same area after renovation will likely require three times as much as well as need specialized supplies.

Phased Cleaning

Sometimes you may need to clean a large area or several areas following the completion of a large project. This is where phased cleaning can come in handy. Instead of trying to get everything done at once, break larger projects down to make them more manageable. In addition, when it comes to construction work, dust will always settle well after the work is done, which means you will need to clean the whole space again. Consider cleaning from the top to the bottom, or having the space cleaned after each batch of work to keep renovation dust to a minimum.
