What Does Construction Cleaning Include

Well, this question isn’t such a straight forward one to answer but we will attempt to provide some worthwhile insights into just what is included in an after build clean.

As our name suggests, You Budget – We Clean, we often specifically discuss with the client exactly what cleaning requirements are wanted and then we formulate an individual scope of works that fulfills your cleaning objectives and budget. Total customer satisfaction from our cleaning service is our utmost priority.

What Construction Cleaning Includes

Construction cleaning can not only include new home building but also renovation cleaning requirements. In the case of a ground-up new build, the construction cleaning process takes place in three stages. Depending on the extent of your project, you may only need some of these services performed.

Rough Interior Cleaning (optional)

This doesn’t mean we perform our cleaning roughly at this stage but is more of a preparatory clean. This is a cleaning process that is performed prior to construction being completed but before any carpets, floor coverings and final fitout has been completed. During the installation of these components, they can often be damaged if they are installed when the internals are still generally dirty which has a negative affect at handover.

Cleaning the spaces of a construction site prior to adding the final elements, such as floors, is important because it ensures that the final install is clean and secure. This type of construction site cleaning job generally includes all of the following:

  • Sweeping and prepping floor underlayment for carpet, tile, etc.
  • Washing all interior windows
  • Dusting surfaces

Final Interior Cleaning

Once the final elements are installed, a more thorough and detailed interior cleaning must take place. The details of this type of cleaning vary significantly from room to room. Kitchens and bathrooms, for example, include cabinetry, appliances, fixtures, and countertops that all need specialized care. However, a good final interior cleaning always includes a few key jobs:

Kitchen

  • Cabinets front and inside cleaned
  • Countertops and shelves dusted and/or wiped
  • Sinks and backsplash washed
  • Exterior of appliances cleaned (stovetop, oven, fridge, microwave, dishwasher)
  • Small appliances wiped (microwave, toaster, coffee maker)
  • All surfaces dusted and/or wiped
  • Windows inside cleaned
  • Windowsills and window tracks cleaned
  • Baseboards dusted and/or wiped
  • Marks on walls and baseboards cleaned
  • Doorknob, doorframes, doors, light switches wiped
  • Trash removed
  • Floor vacuumed and washed

 

Bathrooms

Final Exterior Cleaning

This is usually the messiest part of our after build cleaning. For large renovations, additions, and new builds, messes happen both inside and outside the home. A final, thorough exterior cleanup job rids the property of excess trash, prepares it for finishing stages such as landscaping and paving jobs, and generally increases the curb appeal of a home. This project stage includes:

  • Removing all trash from the property, including lumber and debris
  • Removing protective film from windows and glass (Goop)
  • Washing exterior windows and doors
  • Sweeping and dusting any entry doorways
  • Sweeping and/or power washing the driveway and any other paved surfaces
  • Cleaning brickwork and hard surfaces i.e. gutter, fascia, eaves, patio tiles etc
  • Dusting all exterior lights
