Restoring order with an after build clean


There is a huge difference between an after build clean and domestic cleaning, after build cleaning means a thorough clean after a building project, while domestic cleaning is a light clean on a regular basis. Dust, dirt and grime can end up all around the property. And while the tradesman are putting the finishing touches to your home, you need to be looking at carrying out a thorough deep clean to make sure that the property looks as good as possible and is spotless so you can finalise the project and handover a sparkling property to the client.

For the after building clean to be effective, the site should be free of all building materials and all tradesman should have completed their work. All waste and debris should be removed from the property before cleaning starts.

Our after building cleaners will vacuum and mop where appropriate  Dirty floors will be scrubbed cleaned and polished with a scrubber dryer buffer machine and carpets that are especially dirty or stained will be treated and washed. Our operatives will wear shoe coverings to ensure dust and dirt is not spread around whilst cleaning.

Why use an after build cleaner

With after build cleaning, you want to remove all traces of leftover materials and marks post completion of any building work. Despite the tradesman’s best efforts to cover flooring or seal rooms to protect them, there is always the possibility of them needing a deep clean regardless of how careful they are. A deep after build clean will ensure the property is safe for occupants and no hazards are left behind.

For this reason, it can be a good idea to hire after build cleaners to meticulously clean, inspect, and leave it spotless throughout. An after build cleaner will have the right cleaning supplies and tools on hand for easier removal of leftover residues and building materials, allowing them to take care of all the work quickly and easily.
