After Remodeling Cleaning

Post-Construction Cleaning

Professional Construction Cleanup & Post-Renovation Cleaning

Construction and renovations are messy. Projects often include both demolition and installation, leave behind unused scraps and materials, and present a much different end result than what you might have envisioned. There's a vital step between the end of a renovation and the handing over of the key: a post-construction cleaning.

Post-construction cleaning isn't just a matter of dust, either. It requires knowing how to properly dispose of hazardous materials, how to clean and polish brand-new flooring and walls, and addressing safety issues like loose wires or leaks. Think of post-construction cleaning like proofreading a book: it might be the final step, but it's crucial for ensuring the final product is exactly what it should be.

At The Cleaning Authority, our professional post-renovation cleaning services offer a thorough, detailed, and multi-phase cleaning of your new or renovated space. We can work directly with your contractors to provide professional cleaning near the end of the construction process, addressing any unfinished issues or problems while making sure your space is livable and attractive. In other words, professional construction cleanup is what turns your space into a home.

The Phases of Post-Construction Cleanup

There are three phases to most construction cleanup projects:

  • Rough clean
  • Initial or light clean
  • Final finish clean

For some projects, you'll also have a final exterior clean. We'll go over all phases in this section, beginning with the rough clean.

Rough Clean

The rough clean stage takes place either during or just after the construction work wraps up. 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, leftover building materials, and other large pieces. It will also include removing stickers and labels from doors, windows, and other items, as well as vacuuming the whole space.

Light Clean

The light clean phase is the most labor-intensive phase of the post-construction cleanup, and it also requires the most equipment. Restrooms, kitchens, and other rooms that serve a specific purpose will be attended to. Installations like toilets, sinks, windows, cabinets, and counters will get a thorough cleaning as well.

Final Clean

The last phase is the final clean, which is the stage where last-minute touch-ups are applied. Any dust or dirt that has settled since the second phase will now be vacuumed or wiped up. Our team will also go through the space with a fine-toothed comb to wipe down any smudges, fingerprints, and markings left behind by construction.

Exterior Construction Cleanup

For projects where the construction included exterior work, our team will also do a pass of cleaning that includes picking up any debris outside, making sure caulk and paint are finished correctly, and wiping down windows on the exterior. Sometimes this phase is simply a part of the light clean phase as well—whatever makes the most sense for your project.

Post-Renovation Cleanup FAQ

Is Post-Construction Cleaning Hard?

It's certainly labor-intensive. Construction is a messy process, leaving behind dust, wood and metal shavings, nails, wiring, and all other kinds of leftover materials. A construction crew's main concern is leaving you with a safe, stable structure that meets the specifications. It's not their job to leave it clean, though a considerate contractor might do a little cleanup. Even when a construction job is "done," there might still be days of work left to do. Cleaning kitchen equipment. Getting rid of leftover debris. Vacuuming, dusting, and mopping. Wiping down windows and counters. If you're excited about seeing a "finished product" when construction is over, you might be disappointed. That's why we recommend having a professional crew handle your post-renovation cleanup.
