Post Construction Cleaning

Post Construction Cleaning

Your home’s construction project is complete, but that does not mean your home is ready for you to move in. Construction projects leave behind a lot of dust, dirt, and debris. A new addition to your home will leave behind a lot of sawdust from the framing. Getting the walls refinished can leave behind a thin layer of plaster and paint dust. If your home renovation is complete but there is a lot of dust left behind, use a post-construction cleaning service that can clean up the mess.

Cleaning companies have the tools to make sure your home is ready to move into as soon as possible after a construction project. They do not just clear the surfaces of dirt and dust. Post-construction cleaning services also pull the debris out of the air to keep your family safe and to stop your HVAC vents from clogging. Service Joy Maids can be onsite quickly so you can have your home back faster.

After finishing a home renovation project, you are ready to sit back and enjoy your new space. Before you can kick up your feet, you need to complete a post-construction cleaning. Your primary focus should be removing all the dust that results from construction before it ends up in your air ducts. Almost all home improvement projects produce dust particles that somehow sneak into every nook and cranny of the space you have so carefully renovated. Do not let layers of dust leave your freshly renovated home looking old and dingy. Strap on a protective mask and use this post- construction cleaning checklist to put the finishing touches on your beautiful new space.


Vacuum Carpets & Upholstery

It is all too easy for dust and dirt particles to embed themselves in curtains, upholstered furniture, and carpeted floors. If allowed to settle after construction, the result can not only look filthy, but also cause itchy, irritating reactions for friends, family, or guests. Vacuum all soft surfaces, paying close attention to the details. Remove and vacuum each furniture cushion, and the underlying frames. Try vacuuming twice if you feel any residual dust after the first round.

Wipe Down Hard Surfaces

Clean all surfaces from the top down. Start by wiping the dust off your walls. Dry dusting is the safest way to remove the particles without damaging a wall’s surface, but a damp cloth can also be used depending on your type of paint or wall covering. Refer to the paint or wallpaper manufacturer before using any moisture and test a small area before proceeding. Moldings and cabinets are another favorite resting spot for dust particles. Take a duster to these areas next. Clean the interior shelves of all cabinets, paying special attention to those hard-to-reach corners. Wipe off countertops and any other flat surfaces before tackling the dirt and debris that is on or near the floor. Then, sweep out any visible dust, and mop your hard floors from wall to wall.

Clean Air Vents & Replace Filters

In a large home, a renovation project means, dust and debris will mingle with the air itself, making its way to your vents. Even if you only renovated one part of your home, treating the air vents and filters in that space is critical to reducing the amount of dust that can spread through the rest of your home. Remove the vent covers from the surrounding walls and ceilings, clean each one with soap and warm water, and let them dry thoroughly. Replace any exposed air filters with fresh ones before replacing the vent covers. Breathing dusty air can lead to allergies and respiratory issues, so remember not to skip this step.

Do Not Forget About the Little Things

Clean any other furniture or items in the renovation zone for a fully dust-free living space. Here is a quick list of commonly overlooked areas:
1. Ceiling fan blades
2. Light fixtures
3. Lampshades
4. Electronics
5. Small appliances
6. Decorative items
