Most construction crews are usually pretty good about doing their best to clean up a jobsite once the work is finished. Some construction companies even have an internal post-construction cleanup service that does a quick sweep of the jobsite after the crew members have left. But, even these designated cleaners can leave behind little bits of dust and debris. Understandably, you may be eager to get your residential or commercial property up and running again after a renovation or repair project. You might think that you can handle the post-construction cleanup on your own, but it’s important not to underestimate the scope of the job.
Consider hiring a professional post-construction cleaning service in Toronto instead. They have all of the necessary safety and cleaning equipment to make sure that the post-construction cleanup is done as thoroughly and efficiently as possible. Here’s what you can expect from them.
Thoroughly Vacuum All Upholstery
Furniture is typically covered in heavy-duty plastic or bubble wrap to protect it from getting dirty or damaged during a construction job. However, dust and other allergens can still make their way in and settle within the crevices of your favourite chairs and couches. Post-construction cleanup services use industrial shop vacuums to thoroughly remove all dust and allergens from your upholstery.
Clean Up Exterior Walkways
Whether you’ve had work done on a residential or commercial property, it’s important to carefully clean up the exterior of your property after a construction job. Although construction crews do their best to clean up after themselves, sometimes they can leave dirt and debris behind. Post-construction cleanup services will do a thorough sweep of your walkways, driveway, and parking lot to remove all leftover bits of dust, debris, and building materials. If necessary, they can even apply a power wash to remove particularly stubborn debris.
Clean Inside Cabinets and Closets
During and after a construction job, dust and debris can often become airborne and settle in some of the most hard to reach places like on the hinges of cabinets and closets. Along with closed drawers, cabinets and closets are some of the most overlooked areas when it comes to post-construction cleaning. In your haste to prepare your place for use, you may forget to clean these essential areas. But it’s just as important to clean inside closets, cabinets, and drawers as it is to clean open spaces throughout your property. After all, that’s where you store your clothing, dishware, and cutlery, respectively.
Post-construction cleaning services typically keep a detailed checklist of all of the areas throughout your property that need to be cleaned to ensure that they don’t miss anything. They also have access to industrial cleaning products and solutions and antimicrobial cloths to remove all grime, dust, debris, and potential allergens or pathogens that might be left behind.
Restore Windows and Mirrors
Glass in general tends to attract a lot of dust and dirt during and post-construction. Whether you’ve just had work done on a residential or commercial property, it’s important to completely clean your windows, doors, and mirrors to remove all dust and debris. Use heavy-duty glass cleaners to cut through all the grime and dust left on your various glass fixtures. Dirt and dust also love to hide inside the tiny crevices of windowpanes and doorways, so make sure give those a wipe-down as well. Power washing with a strong hose is a great way to clean the outside of your property.
Vacuum and Mop the Floors
Construction jobs can take a huge toll on your laminate or hardwood flooring. In the coming weeks following a major renovation, repair, or construction job it’s going to seem like the cleaning is never-ending. Dust and debris can permeate various surfaces or hide under furniture. You’re going to have to vacuum and mop the floors repeatedly just to get rid of all of the leftover debris. Post-construction cleaning services in Toronto use industrial vacuums and cleaning products to completely remove all dirt and debris that can become airborne and settle in different places throughout your home or workplace.
Remove Paint from Hinges
Precise attention to detail is vital when it comes to performing post-construction cleanup for your residential or commercial property. Applying a fresh coat of paint to the walls, doors, and doorways after completing a construction or renovation project can help spruce up the look of your property. Try as you might to cover the hinges and baseboards of your property with green tape to protect them from getting hit with rogue drops of paint, sometimes the inevitable happens.
Take the time to carefully inspect every inch of your property and remove small drops of paint from door hinges, baseboards, and even the flooring. If you’re worried about accidentally damaging your fixtures during the process, then consider hiring a post-construction cleaning company to do it for you.
Clean the Bathrooms
Cleaning bathrooms is a dirty job even in the best of times, but someone has to do it. If the thought of scrubbing toilets and sinks after they’ve been used for weeks or months by a construction crew makes you more than a little uncomfortable, then it may be time to call in professional post-construction cleaning services. Professional cleaners will do a thorough sweep of the bathroom and use heavy-duty cleaning products to completely clean and disinfect toilets, vanities, mirrors, bathtubs, floors, and all other bathroom surfaces.
Remove and Dispose of Leftover Building Materials and Trash
Try as they might to keep the worksite clean, sometimes construction schedules can be grueling and there’s no time to get rid of leftover garbage or building materials. Leftover building materials can contain some potentially hazardous waste, so it’s ill-advised for inexperienced individuals to try to remove it on their own. It’s better to hire a post-construction cleaning service in Toronto to carefully remove and dispose of hazardous waste and building materials for you.
Post-construction cleaning crews have access to the proper PPE required to protect themselves while they work. Plus, they have extensive theoretical and hands-on training on safely handling, removing, and disposing of hazardous waste and building materials from construction sites.
