Construction sites are messy and they are fraught with the potential for injury. Hiring a professional post-construction cleaning contractor is the key to keeping your build site clean and organized. They have the tools, knowledge, and experience to manage the interval cleaning services required for construction projects that are winding down.
Construction cleaning is a massive, staged job that requires well-thought-out procedures, professional cleaners, and appropriate equipment. When all the heavy construction is done a post-construction cleaning company can prepare your new building for the finishing touches by ensuring that debris is cleared, dust is removed and the building interior and exterior has been rough-cleaned.
They Understand The Process
Just as construction projects unfold in stages, so does construction cleaning; it is not a one-shot deal. A professional post-construction cleaning contractor understands that their cleaning will need to be phased to meet the needs of each stage of the construction project. At the very least, there will be three distinct phases of cleaning.
- The rough cleaning phase prepares the building for finishing. This first phase is typically initiated after the framing, plumbing, and electrical have been completed and involves the removal of debris, dust, and trash as well as the removal of adhesives and masking materials. Cleaning crews will clean floors, baseboards, window sills, and dust high ceilings and hard-to-reach areas. This phase ensures that the building is clean before appliances, carpets, and furniture are installed.
- The finishing phase involves a much more thorough and detailed cleaning in which floors are stripped and polished, carpets are vacuumed, restrooms and kitchens are thoroughly cleaned, windows, light fixtures, ceiling fans, and other fixtures are cleaned and disinfected. The finishing phase ensures that the new building is ready for occupancy.
- The final phase involves the thorough cleaning of the exterior and grounds. This phase of the post-construction cleaning process typically involves the removal of construction materials and debris from the construction site, power-washing exterior walls, walkways, and windows.
They Understand Construction Site Safety
Construction sites can be dangerous and when cleaning crews are required to work during the post-construction stage they must adhere to strict safety protocols. A quality post-construction cleaning company understands construction safety and is aware of the hazards associated with construction sites.
Post-construction cleaning crews are equipped with personal protective equipment like dust masks, gloves, safety glasses, and even hard hats when necessary. More importantly, they are educated on the hazards commonly found in construction settings. Loose nails and screws, glass shards, trip hazards, silica dust, and chemical solvents are just a few hazards associated with post-construction cleaning.
They Are Efficient And Thorough
Smart construction project managers understand the value of specialization. They do not assign electrical work to the masonry crew or HVAC work to the framing crew. They understand that thorough and efficient cleaning should be assigned to a professional cleaning crew.
Professional post-construction cleaning crews are thoroughly trained in the ins and outs of construction cleaning. They have the equipment, training, and experience to not only do a thorough job but to do it more efficiently. This high-efficiency work saves you time and money and helps ensure that you can meet or beat project deadlines.
They Are Independent Contractors
There are advantages to working with independent contractors. They carry their own insurance, manage their own staff, and pay their own employees. In addition, they bring their own equipment and supplies, train their staff, and stand behind their work. This alleviates much of the headaches involved with using in-house staff to manage your post-construction cleaning and protects you from liabilities associated with work performed on your project.
