Building work and construction is a messy business, and once a project has been completed, a thorough, deep clean is essential before people can move into a property.
One way to achieve this is to undertake a builders clean.
A builders clean is also known in the industry as post construction or post renovation cleaning.
New construction cleaning services are used after development of new-build properties, while post renovation cleaning is used after a major refurbishment.
In this article, we provide an overview of builders cleaning, its benefits, and give guidance on its costs.
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 gutterings 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.
These include 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).
New construction house cleaning services may also include the cleaning of garden areas in residential properties.
So all this must be taken into account during a quotation.
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 thoroughly clean a property after renovation is to employ the services of a professional, specialist construction cleaning company.
This way, the cleaning tasks will be completed efficiently, with the correct tools and equipment, and with compliance with all relevant health and safety legislation.
