Post Construction Cleaning Services - Clean Up Your Construction Site
The construction process leaves a big mess, both inside and outside of the building. Someone has to clean it up, but most contractors don't have the spare time and labor. Post-construction cleaning services specialize in making a property sparkle under a tight deadline.
About Post-Construction Cleaning Services
Some traditional commercial cleaning companies offer post-construction cleanup services, while other companies focus exclusively on post-construction cleanup. Some companies specialize on cleaning just the inside of a newly-constructed home or building, while others handle both indoor and outdoor cleanup.
Post-construction cleanup services offer comprehensive interior cleaning that includes: washing all dry surfaces; scrubbing, waxing and buffing floors; dusting ceilings, vents and light fixtures; sanitizing kitchens and bathrooms; vacuuming carpets, cupboards and drawers; and cleaning windows and removing window labels.
Post-construction cleanup services understand the tight schedules and deadlines that contractors face. They can react quickly, arriving on site even as your employees are putting finishing touches on the home or building. Most services complete their work in no more than two to three days.
Cost of Post-Construction Cleaning
The cost of post-construction cleaning depends on the size and difficulty of the job, the cleaning service you choose and your geographic location. Expect to pay anywhere from $.10 to $.25 per square foot.
However, most services reserve the right to charge extra for any tasks that are especially time consuming, including extensive amounts of time on a ladder, removing difficult paint splatters, or cleaning homes and buildings with lots of architectural details.
Choosing a Post-Construction Cleaning Service
- Shop around before deciding on a cleaning service. Ask other contractors for referrals and interview several companies before selecting one.
- Do some background research on any company you're thinking of hiring. At the very least, check the company's track record with the Better Business Bureau.
- Make sure any cleaning service you hire is fully licensed, bonded and insured. Some states require post-construction cleanup services to have a contractor's license. And in some states, the contractor can be fined if the cleaning service is not licensed.
- Get a quote in advance and get it in writing. Make sure it includes a list of tasks to be completed so there's no confusion later on.
