Post Construction Cleaning Checklist

Your construction project is finally over after your contractor has finished the project right? Wrong. Once the dust clears you will be left with post construction dust everywhere, garbage, dirt and more. It’s now time to bring in the cleanup crew. Here’s a quick look at a typical construction site clean up checklist.

General Cleanup:

  • Clean the walls
  • Dust ceilings and ceiling fans
  • Remove and dispose of all garbage
  • Clear all light fixtures and bulbs
  • Clean trim, baseboards, window frames and doors
  • Wipe down all windows
  • Clean and polish floors
  • Vacuum carpet

Entry and Exits:

  • Sweep and clean porches
  • Wash driveways and walkways
  • Clean threshold
  • Clean exterior lights and dispose of excess debris

These are only a few of all the tasks you can expect a professional post construction cleaning company to do to restore your home or business to a like new appearance. It can end up being a lot of work but it’s absolutely necessary.

Construction Site Clean Up Cost

Some contractors themselves might try to handle their own construction site cleanup but to get the best deep clean consider hiring a company that specializes in the clean up. Residential construction clean up was reported by homeowners to cost between $279 to $657 on average.

Post Construction Cleaning Cost Factors

Cost per square foot for cleaning a large commercial building will be less expensive compared to a residential cleanup. That’s because even though the building is most likely larger than a home you still only need to bring all the crew and equipment to one place which is a big time use. Commercial post construction cleanup usually costs between $0.10 to $0.30 per square foot. Residential jobs range from $0.10 to $0.50.

Premium charges may apply. Those include window cleaning, waxing and buffing wood floors, thorough HVAC dust cleaning just to name a few. These are normally charged separately from the normal construction site cleaning.

After Renovation Cleaning Includes:

  1. Rough Interior Cleanup
  2. Final Interior Cleanup
  3. Exterior Cleanup


After Renovation Cleaning Service

When you remodel the kitchen, bathroom, or other rooms in your house, you want to enjoy your newly renovated space. However, this can be difficult to do when dust covers the floors and debris resides in every square inch. While construction companies do some cleaning after projects, it may not be enough to catch all the dirt.

HEPA vacuum used for post construction cleaning

Industrial HEPA Vacuum

High-Efficiency Particulate Air vacuum cleaners otherwise known as HEPA vacuums are some of the highest grade vacuums that exist. There job is to trap extremely small particles that conventional vacuums can’t. A HEPA filter can trap 99.97% of all airborne particles larger than .3 microns. That equates to 0.001 mm or 0.000039 inches. The industrial HEPA vacuums we use are built to withstand any wet, dry or hazardous substance. These make for an absolute must for any construction cleaning.

This was the first time that we have had a cleaning service clean our home. I was very skeptical at first because we have high expectations about how clean our home should be. We just don't have the time lately to give our home the attention it... deserves. Upon our return I was very pleasantly surprised! Our home was just as clean as they said it would be. We will certainly use joys cleaning services in the future!read more
