Written by on January 16, 2014 in Career - No comments | Print this page


After the last drop of paint has dried, the screw tightened and the final nail hammered, you may think that your construction or house remodeling project is done at last, and you may finally enjoy a glass of wine and some peace.

However, with the amount of dust, debris and other building materials left or produced during construction, chances are you still need to get up to deal with the mess. There’s no joy in post-construction cleaning, indeed, but if you’re not going to clean up, who else will? Professional cleaners, of course! That’s if you hired one, anyway.

Post-Construction Cleaning

If your renovation or construction project is nearing completion and you haven’t called professionals to perform a thorough post construction clean-up for you, then it’s about time you contact one. There are plenty of benefits homeowners and organisations can enjoy when availing of post construction cleaning services. Here are some of them:

1. Spotless construction site. What do you get when expert cleaners take care of the trail left behind by your contractor or even by your DIY renovation project? This one’s quite obvious—a shiny and sparkly space, no less. A professional construction cleaning company has all the tools, skills, equipment and patience to complete the clean-up, from removing paint splatters to disposing of construction leftovers.

They will help ensure that the windows, ceilings, walls and every nook and cranny is dirt- and dust-free, making your new home or building clean, presentable and ready for inauguration or occupation.

2. Less distraction. This doesn’t only apply to companies and their managers, but also to homeowners. Cleaning after all the construction mess can be a big source of distraction. Using the services of professional cleaning company, however, can spare you more time and energy to focus on more important tasks, whether it’s growing your business or running your household.

3. Cash savings. Some business owners may think that outsourcing the construction cleaning will only add up to their expenses. On the contrary, companies can actually enjoy significant savings from this instead of assigning the job to one’s staff or hiring extra employees.

Imagine all the cleaning equipment, worker’s compensation, insurance and other benefits your company would have to pay for if you pick the latter. With an expert construction cleaning team, all you need to do is discuss with them your requirements, including your budget, and they can arrange everything for you.

4. Proper hazardous waste disposal. Not all construction sites may contain the usual garbage or simple building leftovers. Some may also have hazardous waste materials in them, such as asbestos. By commissioning a post-construction cleaning service, home and building owners can make sure that such waste will be handled safely, efficiently and in compliance with various state regulations.

5. Refuse recovery. A good and responsible cleaning company also understands that dealing with rubbish doesn’t necessarily mean dumping them in landfills, but could also mean taking these building materials or refuse where they can be recycled or reused.

This could contribute to an individual’s or a company’s environment conservation efforts, as well as one’s budget since you can get your money back from selling masonry, wood beams or other materials that can still be used on other projects.

Post-construction cleaning companies do more than just clear the clutter. They add the finishing touches to your home or building and help you see the true beauty of your construction or renovation project.
