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
