Post Construction Commercial Cleaning

Like it or not, construction can be messy. Few home or business owners want to deal with the aftermath of a building project. As such, they turn to post construction commercial cleaning operators to deal with this. They are the experts and have the experience in this kind of job. With small jobs, it may be possible to tackle it yourself, but some tasks are simply too big to handle. For anyone who decides to do it themselves, there are essential pieces of equipment that could minimize the risk of injury.

Do it Yourself

For minor construction projects done at home, cleaning up the area is not a big issue. These jobs include laying pipes or other plumbing work or paving a driveway. Disposal is another issue however, as garbage trucks are not equipped to handle material left over from this type of work. So it will be necessary to seek the services of a post construction cleaning company to cart away debris. Material needed for these small clean up jobs include:

  • Dust masks: Dust is a common factor in construction jobs and it can lead to respiratory problems. No cleanup job should be attempted without a properly fitting dust mask.
  • Work gloves: This will protect the hands from shards of glass or any other type of material that can cause cuts.
  • Heavy-duty work boots: This will depend on the type of work to be done, but the feet should be protected from nails and other sharp objects.

Finding a Commercial Cleaning Company

It is not difficult to find a company that deal with post construction commercial cleaning. As with any other type of business, due diligence can’t hurt, and it could prevent problems down the road. Asking around for recommendations is always a good idea. Some of these companies do benefit from good word of mouth.

Be sure to ascertain upfront all the fees that will need to be paid before the job is started. It is important to know exactly what the company does and what attracts extra fees. The company should also be responsible for disposal of all material gathered in the cleanup process. Some useful questions to ask are:

  • Will you do the entire job including removal and vacuuming?
  • Is your company certified?
  • How quickly can you get the job done?
  • How do you calculate your fees?
  • Do you use environmentally friendly cleaning methods

The Importance of Post Construction Cleanup

There are two main reasons for utilizing the services of a post construction commercial cleaning company. The first, and not necessarily the most important, is aesthetics. No one wants to be in messy surroundings. Getting the area back to a normal state as quickly as possible is an important part of the construction agenda.

The next reason is health and safety. Bits of wire, dust and pieces of lumber can pose a hazard to anyone. Getting the area back to a clean state can help to ensure the safety of all those who live or work in the building. When any construction job is going to be undertaken, post construction commercial cleaning should always factor into the budget.
