Hit the Ground Running: Post Construction Cleanup Musts

Post construction cleanup is its own animal. The challenges posed are far different from the usual wear and tear or household neglect that cleaners usually face. It’s far beyond the realm of most people who don’t clean professionally. When you’re looking to hire a post construction cleanup crew, you need to find these qualities.
 
Must aim to be up and running ASAP
 
Post construction cleanup needs to be started as soon as possible. Ideally, you’re shopping for cleaners before the work is completed. If you’re running up against the finish date for the project, however, you really need to find out the cleaning company’s availability. Post construction cleanup is easier if stains, excess glue, and other construction messes don’t have a chance to set.
 
Must have the equipment for the job
 
A standard house cleaning service probably won’t have the equipment needed to turn a construction site into a comfortable home or business. Construction leaves tough messes that better equipment is needed to solve. The power of a large, heavy-duty wet/dry vacuum is great for cleaning a construction site, but it’s overkill for the average home. Construction always leaves a lot of wood particles around in the form of sawdust and more. A heavy-duty duster can lock this heavy wood waste in, but not every duster is up for the job. When you’re interviewing your potential post construction cleanup crew, ask about their equipment and if they’re ready to tackle these messes.
 
Must have the experience with construction cleaning
 
Post construction cleanup leads to heavy messes and the need for an experienced touch. Having the right equipment will only take you so far. Getting all the dirt off of a display window after construction takes skill, not just a powerful window cleaning solution. Experience with construction cleaning allows a team to not only work well but to work quickly. This unifies the two previous points: you want it done well, but you need it done now. Is this crew up for it?
 
Must be licensed and insured
 
Licensing is a serious issue. It shows that the cleaners have completed the safety requirements of your city. It shows that their business is legitimate, and they’re taking their work seriously. It could also mean a fine for both of you if they’re caught working without a license. You could still face consequences, even if you honestly didn’t know that they weren’t licensed. For example, hiring a post construction cleanup crew that doesn’t follow the law could result in you facing a hefty fine. It’s best for your safety to make sure your post construction cleanup crew has an active, valid license before work begins.
 
When you’re shopping for a post construction cleanup crew to get your renovated or newly built project off to a great start, don’t forget what they must have. They must be licensed, experienced, and well equipped to handle the needs of your specific project. They must be available to start work ASAP, so you don’t waste time while messes get worse.
