Why Post Construction Clean is necessary?


During the post construction clean there can be fair amount of leftover debris which can cause accidents. It is very important to analyze all the hazards and remove them as much as possible before starting the cleaning process.  If anything, which can cause any kind of trouble it is best to tell the site manager so that the construction company can handle it in the best possible manner. During the cleaning it is necessary to take care of sharp screws, staples, nails and broken glass during installation of windows.

Paint Removal

Paint, grease or adhesives can be leftover on floor and other surfaces. Removing of plaster and paint can be a massive task. It is best to talk to the site manager if painters are responsible for removing paint from surfaces. If it is part of post construction clean then it can shoot the price according to the amount of labour required. It is very important to use right technique and right chemical to remove cement, plaster and paint from surfaces and glass without any scratches and damage.

Cleaning in installments

We call in installments because in some projects we have to go back for cleaning again and again. General clean up required before the installation of carpet or some other types of floorings and some times before and after the final coat of paint.


Removal of stickers is a common practice during the post construction clean. Some cleaning crews don’t go deep into these kind of work but it is important to leave any kind of instructions for operating appliances for owners and remove all rest of stickers from everywhere.

Dust that you can and cannot see

At Excel Cleaning we always tell customers that the Post Construction Cleaning can arise health risks especially to someone who suffers from asthma or any other respiratory allergies. Builder’s dust majorly contains wood and crystalline silica dust which accumulate everywhere and is very dangerous when inhaled and can even cause quick illness. There is always wood chips, nails, PVC shavings and plastic and foam hide out and visible in the open or sometimes in the corners but there is lot of saw dust and other dust accumulate in all the corners and surfaces which require safe and detail method to remove completely. Window tracks are always the most time-consuming thing to clean with care.

Complete Job on Time

Time is absolutely the most essential part in construction. Any delays can lead to more expenses and bad reputation. Always prefer to complete post construction clean ups in one day. Big companies generally have contracts with clauses for delays. So, post construction cleaning should be done without any delays and mistakes. As a cleaning company you need to manage your commercial and residential post construction cleaning projects differently with the proper equipment and work force.
