The Three Phases of Post-Construction Cleaning

There’s a lot going on during a construction project. Construction is a messy process, leaving behind dust, wood and metal shavings, nails, wiring, and other kinds of leftover materials. Cleaning it all up takes time and is labor-intensive work. Because construction project managers are under the gun with timelines, deadlines, and budgets to meet, post-construction cleanup is typically contracted out to professional cleaners with experience in this type of specialized work. There are actually three phases of post-construction cleaning which include the rough clean, light clean, and final or touch-up clean.

1). Rough Clean 

The rough clean stage takes place either during or just after the construction work is completed.  Rough cleaning can include scrubbing down plywood or concrete to ensure the new flooring is installed correctly. The rough cleaning phase will largely include properly disposing of debris and leftover building materials, removing stickers and labels from doors, windows, and other items, as well as vacuuming the entire space.

2). Light Clean 

The light clean phase is the most labor-intensive phase of post-construction cleanup and requires the most equipment. Bathrooms, kitchens, and other rooms that serve a specific purpose will be attended to. Newly installed toilets, sinks, windows, cabinets, and counters will get a thorough cleaning. Any trash or debris will get discarded

3). Final or Touch-up Clean 

The final clean is when last-minute touch-ups are completed. The construction team and contractors have completed their final walkthrough and finished the project. The dust will have settled, so they can wipe down surfaces and make sure everything is spotless. Cleaners will go through the space with a fine-toothed comb and wipe down any smudges, fingerprints, or markings left behind by workers. Once the final clean is completed, the space is considered move-in ready.  

Avoid Extra Costs and Delays with Post-Construction Cleanup Services  

If construction site workers had to clean while they worked, construction timelines would nearly double. Delays and cost increases are the banes of the construction industry. A recent study found that 66% of general contractors take on extra costs due to schedule slips, and 50% need to extend their projects’ end dates. Proper allocation of resources has a direct impact on project costs and completion time, especially when managing several construction projects at once. 

One of the ways to avoid these problems is to hire post-construction cleaners to handle the cleaning during each phase of the project. Post-construction cleaning specialists have the training, equipment, and experience to work efficiently and thoroughly, making sure your residential or commercial space is ready for occupancy as soon as possible.
