Building work and construction is a messy business and once a project has been completed, a thorough deep clean is essential, prior to people moving into the building for work or leisure purposes.
In this article, ACS Cleaning will provide an overview of construction cleaning, including its benefits and guidance on the costs construction cleaning services.
WHAT IS CONSTRUCTION SITE CLEANING?
Construction site cleaning is utilised for both new construction and post-renovation cleaning, it is also referred to as a builders clean in the industry.
New construction cleaning services are used after the development of new-build properties, while post renovation cleaning is used after a major refurbishment. During this process specialised cleaners assess the site before carrying out the clean, in order to ensure it’s suitable for potential inhabitants.
WHAT DO CONSTRUCTION CLEANERS DO?
A construction cleaner’s job comprises of a variety of cleaning responsibilities, along with a breadth of knowledge and expertise in the industrial cleaning sector. Typically, construction cleaners ensure all remaining construction debris is removed from the site, before cleaning the building from top to toe. Potential cleaning requirements for a construction cleaner include polishing/cleaning floors, windows and surfaces, as well as cleaning walls and ceilings.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN POST CONSTRUCTION CLEANING?
Post construction cleaning can be used to clean up many different types of industrial, commercial and residential properties.
After a building project has finished, it is likely there will be dust, dirt and grime caused by plastering, painting, electrical contractors, and other trades.
But before post construction cleaning can start, the property must be cleared of any trades people, building materials, debris, and equipment.
Once the property is ready to be cleaned, specialist construction cleaners can begin to clean the floors, walls, windows, fixtures and fittings, and external areas, such as gutters and window ledges.
Sometimes furniture is also cleaned. A typical example of this is during post-handover ‘sparkle cleaning’ for certain types of properties, such as new-build residential properties that come with furniture.
HOW MUCH DOES A BUILDERS CLEAN TYPICALLY COST?
The cost of a builders clean varies according to a number of factors. Therefore, when calculating a quote, industrial cleaners must consider the size of the property or properties, the condition of the property, and the scope of the cleaning task (e.g. internal only, external, or a combination of both).
In conjunction with this, new construction house cleaning services may also include the cleaning of garden areas in residential properties.
The combination of varying factors will be taken into account and costs will be adjusted based on this.
A specialist cleaning service contractor can advise on the actual total cost.
POST RENOVATION CLEANING SERVICES
While post construction cleaning is used for new-build properties, post renovation cleaning is also essential for properties that have been recently renovated or undergone other types of building work.
After a refurb has been completed, there is invariably lots of mess, dust and dirt to contend with.
The best way to guarantee a thoroughly clean a property after renovation, is to employ professional services from a specialist construction cleaning company. This will be hugely advantageous at what may already be a stressful time, as cleaning activities will be handled quickly, with the proper tools and equipment, as well as in accordance with all applicable health and safety regulations.
