The process of post construction cleaning is time-consuming and painstaking, it requires a professional approach, competent organization and special detergents and cleaning products and equipment.
But if you decide to cope with this work on your own, we are ready to share with you some professional secrets and tell you about the difficulties you may encounter.
Post construction cleaning
Post construction cleaning differs significantly from general cleaning and consists of the following items:
- Removal of post construction debris.
- Removal of post construction dust.
- Elimination of point pollution.
- Window washing.
- Room cleaning.
At the first stage of self-cleaning after repair, you need to get rid of post construction debris. It is important to observe safety precautions here. Be sure to wear protective gloves, construction debris will most likely contain piercing or cutting objects. When putting garbage in bags, sort it. Often in the construction trash are tools or the right things. Post construction waste bags must not be disposed of in household waste containers near residential buildings.
You can get a hefty fine for this. Such garbage is taken to landfills, which, as a rule, are located outside the city. If there is a lot of garbage, you will have to make several trips by private car or order garbage collection. It is quite possible that it will be more profitable to order professional cleaning service than to carry out repeated multi-kilometer trips yourself.
The next problem is getting rid of post construction dust in the room. Endlessly settling dust on freshly cleaned surfaces can lead to despair. This is one of the most difficult stages of post construction cleaning. A vacuum cleaner is of great help here. But if there is a lot of construction dust, you can irrevocably damage expensive household appliances. In the arsenal of a professional cleaning company, there are special construction vacuum cleaners designed specifically for post construction cleaning.
Construction dust leaves unpleasant stains after wet cleaning, so experts use special tools that not only help in the fight against stains, but also effectively remove various dirt and flaws from builders without harming the cleaned surfaces. For every stain of paint, glue, foam, tile grout, traces of adhesive tape, and so on and so forth, special tools are needed, the purchase of which can lead to serious costs.
But in addition to financial problems, you will need knowledge about the properties and characteristics of the surfaces to be cleaned. An important rule of any cleaning is “Do no harm”. This is especially true in post construction cleaning, when pollution is complex, and it is very disappointing to spoil a newly renovated interior.
Specialists of professional cleaning companies undergo special training in this matter and use proven professional cleaning and detergents and equipment in their work. When carrying out self-cleaning, you can be advised to carefully read the recommendations of manufacturers and how to use cleaning products, as well as test them on inconspicuous areas of the surfaces to be cleaned.
When washing windows, you may encounter the problem of removing the protective film on the frames, especially if it has “been stuck”. This is a difficult job even for professionals. You will need special tools – a scraper, a building hair dryer, a clerical knife and a special tool, as well as patience and extra caution.
After washing the windows, you can proceed to a comprehensive cleaning in the rooms. Cleaners carry out cleaning using the top-down method and gradually move from the far corner to the exit (this eliminates cross-contamination). We recommend adopting this method, and then your cleaning will be better and more efficient.
As you can see, self-cleaning after repair will take you more than one day, you will spend a lot of time and effort not only on the process of putting your house in order, but also on acquiring all the necessary tools and tools.
A professional cleaning company will quickly and efficiently clean up after repairs at prices commensurate with the labor costs and complexity of this type of cleaning.
