The Importance of Post-Construction Cleaning

You’ve completed your construction or renovation project and now you have to deal with the mess the contractors left behind. While contractors will provide after-construction cleaning most of the time, it’s usually at an added cost.

That is why it is recommended that you hire a professional cleaning company for post-construction cleaning; after all, cleaning up after a project is a highly specialized process that should be left up to those with the proper equipment and cleaning materials.

But you might be wondering why hiring someone is worth the money. Below are the benefits of having a cleaning done following your construction project:

Post-Construction Cleaning Removes Hazardous MaterialsPost Construction Cleaning

If you are in an older building and have had it renovated, hazardous materials may have been discovered. A professional cleaner is trained to ensure that all toxic materials are removed properly and thoroughly.

Using the Right Equipment and Cleaning Materials

When it comes to cleaning up after a construction project, professional cleaners will use safe, non-toxic, and eco-friendly cleaning materials. They will also clean your furniture and upholstery with specialized vacuums and your carpets and floors using safe, non-toxic materials.

Keeping Your Ducts Clean

Despite a contractor’s best efforts, dust and debris can still make their way into your building’s ductwork. Up to 40 pounds of dust finds its way into a building’s ductwork annually; following a construction or renovation project, this amount will only increase. This can be problematic for anyone who suffers from any respiratory ailments or the office as a whole during the cold and flu and allergy seasons. In addition, ducts that are clogged with dust and debris can also cause an increase in your energy bill.

Cleaning Windows

Having a view of the outside is great for employee morale and the sun shining in can cut down on the energy bill by reducing the need for artificial lighting. However, thick, coated-on dust and dirt following a construction or renovation project can lessen the sunshine coming in, as well as send the wrong message to customers and clients, making clean windows a necessity.

Make sure that you hire a proven professional for after-construction cleaning; even if they charge a lower price, this does not necessarily mean that they will provide top-quality service. Research what customers have to say about the cleaning company you are considering hiring online.
