Window Cleaning How-To Guide | Getting a Professional Finish

Is dirt or grime on your windows making it hard to enjoy beautiful views while also making a poor impression on customers or guests?

If so, it might be time to call in professional window cleaners.  

Our trained professionals can wash any kind of Vancouver window, and are available for both commercial and residential window and gutter cleaning projects.

We work hard while performing our service so it is effortless for you to enjoy clear glass that is flawlessly clean.

Why are Clean Windows Important?

Here are a few reasons to get your windows cleaned:

  • Take in views that are not besmirched by dirt or scuff marks. A great job on a window can remove visual obstructions. When you look through your windows each day, instead of seeing dirt, you will focus on the world beyond the glass. In fact, you might forget you are even looking through glass.

  • Let in more natural light. When windows and skylights are clean, more sunlight can reach the interior of your residential or commercial building. With that natural light flowing freely, you might even be able to save on your electric bills since you will not have to rely as much on artificial light or heating.

  • Give customers, business associates, and guests a favorable impression. When people see your windows are dirty, it does not send a positive message about your business. In fact, some customers might even hesitate to walk through the door of your establishment if your windows are too dirty. Restoring their shine could be exactly what you need to change their minds and get their business.

  • Enhance curb appeal. Are you putting your property up for sale? The curb appeal of your house will benefit from sparkling windows. Prospective buyers will also be more happy with the interior of your abode when your windows are spotless. They will be able to imagine the possibilities of inhabiting such a home.

  • Make windows easy to wash in the future. If you do not wash your windows regularly, dirt and grime will cake up, oxidizing and becoming harder to remove. So, window washing will be easier going forward if you order service more frequently.

  • Reduce the need for repair work. Window washing and gutter cleaning are both forms of maintenance that can protect your window glass. In fact, working with window cleaning Vancouver companies may ultimately help you to keep your windows in more pristine condition. That means less repair work over the long run. Less maintenance on your windows means more time and funds available for maintaining other aspects of your house.

  • Protect your health. Leaving windows un-washed can be a great way to invite mold into your house or workplace. A buildup of mold can cause health issues that range from mild to severe. But a quality job pressure washing exterior glass or hand-cleaning interior glass can get rid of existing mold and help prevent new mold from getting a foothold in your property.

Why Work With a Professional Window Cleaning Service?

Now you know why window cleaning is so important. But why work with a professional window cleaning service instead of cleaning your windows yourself?

  •  Save time and effort. It might take you hours to wash all of your windows yourself. In some cases, it could be a multi-day job. We free up your time and reduce your stress by taking care of all that hard work for you.

  • Save money. While you might think that you can reduce costs by washing your own windows, you will have to take time out of work to do it. If you need commercial window washing, that might even mean putting a "Closed" sign on your door. Those inconveniences all add up to money lost. Ultimately, a great job from a professional Vancouver window washing service will help you keep money in your pocket.

  • Enjoy your home life or run your business without interruptions. While your window cleaning service team is at work, you can go about your day. Our techs are not only meticulous about each job, but also keep out of your way.

  • Our company does a thorough job. The attention to detail we bring to every window is second to none, and the results you can look forward to will be exceptional every time. Say goodbye to dirty windows and hello to flawlessly clean and clear glass.

  • We brings commercial-grade cleaning agents and equipment to your job. Whether you need pressure washing or any other window cleaning service, we have the supplies we need to get the job done right.

  • Our licensed and insured crew can handle jobs safely that you cannot. That even includes exterior window cleaning on skyscrapers and other tall structures.

So, is window cleaning worth it? If you want sparkling windows in Vancouver without spending time and effort yourself, absolutely.

What Do Professional Window Cleaners Use to Clean Windows?

Our crew works by hand with commercial-grade squeegees. We also use soft microfiber cloths to scrub away stubborn dirt and grime without damaging the smooth surface of your glass. Because we are doing this kind of detail work by hand, we can assure the utmost quality for every square inch of glass.

At your request, we can also perform pressure washing of your exterior windows. This is a rapid way to get rid of even the most stubborn dirt and mold.

Our powerful cleaning agents lift grime and stains with ease. And since they are eco-friendly, you can rest assured you are doing your part for the planet when you work with our window cleaning service.

How Often Should Commercial Windows be Cleaned?

One question a lot of customers ask is how often cleaning services are necessary in Vancouver, BC. 

You will encounter a wide range of answers to this question, and that is because your mileage can vary significantly depending on the type of commercial company you operate.

Some businesses might be able to get away with using a window cleaning service once every couple months, or even just several times a year. 

But for a customer-facing establishment such as a restaurant or retail store, you might need window cleaning more often.

It only takes a couple of weeks for the buildup of dirt on a shop or restaurant window to become obvious to customers.

So, getting professional window cleaning once every couple of weeks or even a couple times a week may be right for your business.

Ultimately, services may end up paying for themselves if it means more profits for your company.

While our main focus is on washing windows, we also provide a gutter cleaning service for business and residential customers in Vancouver, BC.

House gutters are even more prone to dirt buildup than windows.  Indeed, they can catch and trap all manner of debris. Failure to clean the gutters regularly can result in damage to your house along with rot and leaks.

That way, with that extra load gone, your gutters remain in excellent condition, reducing the maintenance and repair work you might need over the long haul.

Frequently Asked Questions About Professional Window Cleaning Vancouver Services

Q: How much should I pay to have my windows cleaned?

Many of the questions we receive most frequently about Vancouver window cleaning regard how much it will cost, or what is a fair price.

Depending on the specifics, anywhere from around $2-$8 per pane is typical.  

How much does it cost to get outside windows cleaned? The pricing we gave above is typical, but window washing upper stories may be more expensive.

How much does it cost to have a skyscraper windows cleaned? Window cleaning service professionals usually charge by the hour for this type of job. The pricing is generally around $40 and $80.

How much does it cost to clean a single window? Well, most companies are not going to want to go out to your location for less than a certain minimum amount of pay. So, they may simply charge for an hour of labor if you only want one window washed.

Q: How much does it cost to have business windows cleaned?

The cost for cleaning business windows is often comparable to that of cleaning residential windows. But for very large or unusually shaped windows, or for windows that are high above the ground, we would need to provide you with a custom quote. Of course, that is also true of window cleaning services for your house.

 Q: What time of year is best for window cleaning?

For home services, most customers like to give us a call in spring. Window cleaning at this time can help you to get rid of dirt and debris from winter so you can start your year out right.

But any time of year can be the right one for window cleaning if you have a serious buildup of grime.

And for businesses, it is usually wise to get window cleaning services performed any time you expect a heavy influx of customers.

For example, if you run a seasonal retail store, you would want to get your windows washed at the beginning of the season.

As another example, perhaps you are holding a big sale soon, or another event. Window washing services in advance of the big day can help make it a success.

Q: How much does it cost to clean gutters in BC?

It costs anywhere from around $150 to $350 to clean gutters for most homes in British Columbia. But for larger homes, or those with more stories, you could pay a higher price.

Q: What time of year is best for gutter cleaning?

Just as springtime is ideal for window cleaning home services, it is also an excellent time to clean out your gutters.

The harsh winter weather should be behind you, but it probably deposited plenty of debris . So, it would be wise to clear that debris out while you are also seeing to other spring cleaning and upkeep jobs around the home. 

Many people also like to have gutter cleaning services performed in the fall as well. You might want to wait until after most of the leaves have fallen from the trees. That way, you can have them removed from your gutters, ensuring that they will not be weighted down by so much debris through the winter.

Q: Will my walls or floor get dirty when you are cleaning my windows?

A: No. We are careful when performing our services inside your house to protect the walls and floor as we work.

Q: Why should I work with a company that specializes in window cleaning?

A: A basic cleaning service company that does not have extensive experience in windows can actually reduce the shine of your windows in the long run.

How so? They may turn to harsh solvents that degrade your glass. They also may produce static cling--a common issue when relying on Windex.

Our company uses cleaning products that are both mild and effective. That way, we protect every windowpane on your property from unnecessary damage. We also get rid of dust without leaving behind static that would simply attract more.

Q: What about my window screens?

A: Just as it is important to clean your windows regularly, so it is with your screens as well. We can make this part of our personalized service plan for your house or commercial structure.

"How do I clean my house after construction? What about my new commercial building?" If these are the types of questions you are asking yourself, you need post-construction cleanup services.

While you may feel tempted to try and manage cleaning post-construction on your own, there are many advantages to leaving the job to the pros. In this post, we will go over those benefits in detail. But first, let's discuss the basics.

What is Post-Construction Cleaning?

Post-construction cleaning is exactly what it sounds like. After a building is constructed, it is not immediately move-in ready. Builders leave behind a mess. Someone has to clean it up before the structure is usable. Getting rid of all the dust, dirt, debris, and residue of construction in preparation for move-in is the goal of a post-construction clean job.

What Does Post-Construction Cleaning Include?

Professional cleaning after construction work is a comprehensive job. Cleaners remove everything left behind by the builders.

Along with debris, that means scrubbing out stains and spills. It means peeling off stickers and removing the residue. It also entails cleaning up toxins.

A professional team will wipe down every interior surface, no matter how hard it is to reach. They will also thoroughly disinfect the premises.

What are the Benefits of Professional Post-Construction Cleanup?

Now, let's go over the advantages of having professionals tackle the job.

1. A professional team can do a complete job.

You might be surprised by just how much construction dust can remain after builders leave a worksite--and all the hard-to-reach places it can get into.

A construction clean team will ensure that all debris is gone, even if that means getting deep inside vents or scouring surfaces to remove particularly stubborn stains, sealants and adhesives.

2. A cleaning company can handle the job quickly and economically.

Trying to handle post-construction cleaning on your own will require days out of your schedule. A single room may take you hours. For a whole building, you may even end up having to enlist family members or employees. All the while, the building will not be available yet for you to use.

Experienced cleaners can work more rapidly than those without professional experience. By getting the job done fast, they help you move forward with using the building sooner. And since time is money, they also make post-construction cleaning more affordable.

3. The pros know how to stay safe, even when disposing of dangerous toxins.

You may be surprised by some of the hazards that cleaning up after construction can entail. In particular, construction workers sometimes leave hazardous materials behind.

A post-construction cleaning service is trained in safe practices, and can remove these dangerous materials from your structure. There is no need to risk your health or that of your family or employees.

4. Experienced pros know how to dispose of waste legally and environmentally.

Speaking of disposing of hazardous materials, along with safety, there are also issues of legality. Are you familiar with the complex regulations that govern the disposal of paints, solvents, and other materials?

The experts who work for a post-construction cleaning service can get rid of all the materials left behind at a worksite correctly. That way, you will not be in violation of any laws.

5. Professionals bring the tools and supplies needed.

If you want to try and clean your own construction site, you will first have to invest in all of the cleaning products and tools you need to do a thorough job.

An experienced team already has the commercial-grade cleaning products they need to tackle even the toughest parts of the project.

Not only that, but you can choose a professional cleaning company to work with that uses eco-friendly supplies and techniques.

That way, you are helping to take care of the planet. Indeed, this wraps back around to waste disposal as well, since your cleaning company can recycle where appropriate. That is yet another eco-friendly practice that would require a lot more work if you were to try and do it all yourself.

6. You can stay focused on other things.

Last but not least, how do you want to spend your time? Do you want to spend it clearing away construction dust? Or would you rather get on with other aspects of your life? With the pros on your side, you can keep moving forward.

Frequently Asked Questions About Post-Construction Cleaning Services

Q: How much should a builders clean cost?

A: The price for most post-construction or renovation cleanup projects ranges between 10 cents and 50 cents per square foot.

Q: What is post-renovation cleaning?

8 Reasons Post-Construction Cleaning is Not Like Daily Cleaning

Have a post-construction cleanup job to tackle? Whether residential or commercial, these types of cleaning jobs are not like daily cleaning. In fact, a janitorial service that excels at post-construction cleaning can easily handle daily cleaning jobs—but a company that only does daily cleaning probably is not ready to take on post-construction cleaning. Cleaning up after construction involves a unique set of challenges with respect to scope and timing. Let’s take a look at a few key reasons why this kind of work calls for more specialized expertise than your regular janitor can offer.

1. We have one chance to do it right. Going into a post-construction job, one of our top considerations is that this is our sole opportunity to get the job done right. Whether our clients will be moving into their new residence, opening a new business, or setting up new offices, that is a momentous occasion that will only happen once. It is up to us to make sure the building is sparkling clean and ready for to fulfil its new purpose. That way, when you first set foot in your new home or business, it will be everything you hoped for.

2. Your schedule is our schedule. A family cannot delay moving into a new home, and a business cannot delay opening. Our clients are all on tight timetables with little or no margin for error. That means that no matter what the job entails and what situations arise, we must meet our client’s deadline. With daily cleaning, if something unexpected comes up, a company can just come back and deal with it tomorrow. But that luxury does not exist with post-construction cleaning. That means our team needs to get creative and come up with solutions on the spot. But this is exactly where our professional cleaners excel.

3. We need to clean every surface. Daily cleaning involves a much smaller checklist than post-construction cleaning. Cleaning up after construction needs to be a complete job. There is not a single surface that goes untouched. That means we get into every corner, every nook, and every crevice. We clean inside of cabinets and vents. We thoroughly scrub trim and molding, and wipe down light fixtures and fans. We bring the specialized equipment we need to do the most comprehensive work possible.

4. We have to remove debris, stickers, sealants, stains, etc. Daily cleaning may involve cleaning up after employees, but there is a big difference between mopping up a little sugar in the break room and cleaning up what construction workers leave behind at a site. It is our job to peel stickers off of new appliances, clear out dust and debris, remove small, hazardous objects like screws or nails, and scour away glue, sealants, stains and spills. Stains, glues, and sealants all have had time to sit by the time we get to them, so they can be extra tough to scrub out. Our goal is to do such a thorough job that you never even knew those stains existed when you move into your new building.

5. We may have to clean up toxins. While we are clearing away all that construction workers leave behind, our workers may have to clean up toxic chemicals that janitors engaging in daily cleaning would never encounter. That is why our staff all carry Material Data Safety Sheets (MSDS). These sheets provide specific safety guidelines for a wide range of hazardous substances. That way, our workers stay safe, and also leave behind a safe environment for you to move into.

6. We have to disinfect everything. Disinfecting is a regular part of daily cleaning, but with post-construction cleaning, it is necessary to take it to a whole new level. The reason is that we need to disinfect all the surfaces, no matter how difficult they are to reach. Methods like steam vapour disinfection and anti microbial fogging disinfection help us to ensure that no corner of your building is harbouring mold, viruses, or bacteria.

7. We sometimes need to return to do follow-up work on a tight schedule. In theory, post-construction cleaning should take place after all work at a site is complete. But that does not mean that it always works out that way.Sometimes, construction workers might return to a site to take care of something they forgot or to squeeze in an extra task after post-construction cleaning has taken place. When that happens, the post-construction cleaning crew must also return after they have gone to clear up any new messes. These last-minute cleaning jobs need to be as fast as they are thorough. Sometimes, we need to be ready to show up on-call, not just on a predetermined schedule.

8. Any unwelcome surprises are ours to deal with. The client may not yet be occupying the building, but that does not mean that nobody else is. Sometimes when handling post-construction cleanup, workers might stumble on termites or spiders, or hear mice scampering through the walls. When we encounter issues like these, we either take care of them ourselves, or coordinate with you to find another solution (i.e. bringing in pest control, if the issue necessitates it). Either way, we make sure that there are no uninvited guests making a home in your structure when you move in.

When looking for commercial cleaning services in Vancouver, BC, it is important to know that not all janitorial services are equal.

If you are contracting out for office cleaning services or other janitorial work, you are in need of professional expertise and meticulous attention to detail.

As you will be allowing the cleaning company access to your facilities, you are also extending significant trust to the business you will be working with.

For those reasons, it is worth doing some extra research to make sure you are choosing one of the top companies operating in the Lower Mainland. Following are some recommendations to help you find the best commercial cleaning services Vancouver has to offer.

1. First, assess your cleaning needs.

Before you can find the right cleaners for your business, you will need to figure out what types of services you require.

For example, you might need the following cleaning services for your Vancouver office:

  • Wiping down of frequently used surfaces

  • Window cleaning

  • Carpet cleaning

  • Trash disposal

  • Sweeping and wiping of tile floors

  • Cleaning of office technology

  • Sanitizing

  • Specialized COVID-19 disinfection services

You might also be looking for some related services, such as:

  • Landscape maintenance

  • Basic repair work (i.e. electrical or plumbing)

  • Supply replenishment

Not every commercial cleaning company in the area offers all of these services. So, you will need to check what janitorial services are offered by the company you are thinking about working with.

An additional consideration is the frequency of services. How often do you want office cleaning performed? What times of day are best for you? Find out whether the business in question can come by on a schedule that fits your cleaning needs.

2. Check up on a company’s background and overall experience.

The next important step in evaluating prospective cleaning services in Vancouver is to research the company's background. Is the business locally owned? How long have they been established in the Vancouver area? Look up their business license information to make sure that they are registered and operating legally.

Once you are satisfied that the service is trustworthy overall, you can proceed to a deeper investigation into the business's quality and fit for your offices.

3. Find out about training and certifications.

Next, check whether the commercial cleaning services you are interested in have professional certifications.

This is also a good time to check what standards and guidelines they conform to.

Ask some questions about the staff that will be performing the janitorial services as well. Are they employees or contractors? What training do they undergo? What background checks does the company conduct prior to hiring them?

4. Check up on insurance.

To protect yourself while hiring janitorial services, you should work only with a bonded and insured business. Look for:

  • A janitorial bond: If one of the employees of the company steals from you while performing the cleaning service, this bond covers the losses.

  • General liability insurance: This type of insurance can cover costs if your property is damaged or if you or one of your employees are injured.

  • Workers’ compensation insurance: This type of coverage protects employees of the cleaning company should they get injured on the job (if there is no workers' comp, the customer can hypothetically end up being liable in some scenarios).

5. Ask what procedures the company follows to ensure safety.

While insurance can go a long way toward protecting both the cleaning company's employees and the customer's employees, it is best to prevent problems in the first place every time.

This is why it is important to make sure the commercial cleaning services provider you are thinking of using in Vancouver, BC has thorough protocols in place to prevent accidents, injuries, property damage, and other mishaps.

As an example, professional Vancouver janitorial staff should carry Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) while on the job. They can consult these sheets to make sure they are following correct safety guidelines when handling potentially hazardous chemicals.

6. What general processes and checklists can you expect the company to use when cleaning your space?

A customer should consider describing the overall scope of a job to a Vancouver commercial cleaning service, and then asking how the company plans to handle the job. The right Vancouver commercial cleaning business should be able to offer a comprehensive cleaning plan.

Another way you can get an idea what you can expect from an office cleaning service is to request a copy of the checklists the commercial cleaning company uses. Skim through it to see if all the cleaning services you want are included. If there are cleaning services you require but do not see on the checklists, you can ask whether those additional services are something the business can offer.

7. Does the business provide eco-friendly cleaning services?

It is more important than ever for all businesses to do their part to protect the environment. So, you will want to look for an eco-friendly Vancouver commercial cleaning service that follows green cleaning practices.

Check if the cleaning products the company uses are approved by the EPA. See if they use recycled and recyclable materials when possible. Also check into how they dispose of waste. If the team will be working outdoors, find out what they will do to protect your company's green spaces (i.e. landscaping or surrounding foliage).

8. Go with a commercial cleaning business that can handle any special requirements for your industry.

Depending on the industry you are in, you might need cleaning services in Vancouver that are specialized to meet your needs.

Say, for example, that you are in the medical industry. Your facilities must meet certain high standards for disinfection that would not be necessary in regular offices.

Vancouver, BC cleaning services that use hospital-grade cleaning products will be able to offer the disinfection you need to protect clinic staff and patients.

For other types of facilities in other industries, there may be different specialized commercial cleaning requirements.

9. Ask for references.

Since you will be placing so much trust in the Vancouver area cleaning services you will be employing, you should ask for references.

It is true that reading reviews online is a good first step to determine the quality of a company. But you need to go a step further to find out what real clients have to say.

Do not just ask for the references, and then hire the company--follow up and contact the clients. When you call, ask if they highly recommend the business, and see what thorough details they can share with you. Be sure to not only inquire about areas of satisfaction, but also any complaints they might have about the Vancouver cleaning services.

10. Evaluate customer support.

It is easy to focus exclusively on the quality of cleaning products and the attention to detail that cleaners show when performing services. But the quality of customer service is another key factor in determining whether a company offering professional cleaning services is worth employing.

The best way to preview customer service is to contact the team yourself. Ask them detailed questions about the services they provide in Vancouver. Get as specific as you can.

It should be easy to tell whether the team is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly. Talking with a representative over the phone or in person is also another good way to assess whether the business seems trustworthy.

What is Post Construction Cleaning and Why is it Important?

When planning a residential or commercial construction or renovation project, a lot of time, thought, and work goes into planning the construction phase itself. But what happens after construction or renovation is finally complete?

While you might envision yourself immediately moving into your new home or office, the reality is that no newly-constructed structure is move-in ready. Any recent worksite is going to need immediate cleanup. And that is what a post construction or post renovation cleaning service is for.

What is Post Construction Cleaning?

When construction workers depart a building site, they are going to leave behind, dust, dirt, and debris. There also are likely to be fine particles of wood, paint, insulation, and other materials scattered around the structure. In some rooms, there might even be splatters of paint or caulk.

 Post construction cleaning is the process of thoroughly removing all of this unwanted mess from your home or commercial building prior to use. This is an intensive deep cleaning job that many homeowners or facility managers are unprepared for following construction or renovation.

Can you handle this type of work on your own? That depends on your skill levels, resources, and how much time you have to dedicate to the task. Some people do handle their own post construction cleaning. But it can save time and energy to turn to a professional to accomplish the job.

Why Do You Need Post Construction Cleaning?

The main reason post construction cleaning services are important will become immediately obvious when you step inside your home or commercial building after a construction job is complete. The sheer amount of garbage, dust, debris and residue make the property borderline unusable until intensive cleaning takes place.

There are also health and safety considerations that make post renovation cleaning necessary. While wood, paint, insulation, and other materials used in construction may be safe as part of a building, the fine particles released when sawing, cutting, spraying, or otherwise modifying or applying these materials is not something you want to be breathing in each day. Deep cleaning can remove these particles, protecting the health of the building's occupants.

What is Included in Post Construction Cleaning?

Cleaning after renovation or construction usually includes the following services:

  • Getting rid of any trash left over from the construction process. Labels, stickers, coverings, and so forth for newly-installed fixtures will be removed and discarded.

  • Clearing away construction dust. This entails thoroughly dusting floors, walls, light fixtures, window frames, doors, cabinets, and more.

  • Sweeping, mopping and vacuuming as needed to get hardwood, tiles, carpets, and other flooring surfaces clean.

  • Cleaning upholstery on sofas and chairs.

  • Scrubbing dirt, residue, scuff marks or stains off of walls, trim, molding, baseboards, windowsills, and other surfaces.

  • Washing windows and wiping down mirrors so they are sparkling clean.

  • Cleaning air ducts and changing filters, as the previous filters will likely be clogged with particulates from the construction phase.

  • Cleaning appliances in the kitchen, and getting behind and underneath them. Plumbing in both the kitchen and bathroom will be wiped down as well. Also, cabinet interiors, backsplashes, and other surfaces in these rooms will receive a thorough cleaning.

  • Handling removal of caulk, paint, or other splashes or residue.

  • Taking care of any cleaning that needs to be done outdoors. This might involve wiping down outdoor light fixtures, power-washing sidewalks or driveways, sweeping off the porch or deck, and similar tasks.

The list above covers a lot of what goes into post construction cleaning. But there might be other work involved depending on the type of property as well as the renovation or construction that took place.

What Are the Benefits of Working With Post Construction Cleaning Services?

While you may be tempted to try and handle your own deep cleaning after construction, taking your business to a professional team offers many benefits:

  • You can save significant time having a company clean for you. If the project was residential, that means you can move forward with unpacking your boxes, setting up your furniture, and making your house feel like a home. If it was commercial, you can minimize disruptions to your business and get right to work in your newly constructed or renovated building.

  • You can spare yourself some hard work. It isn't easy reaching up, bending down, and scrubbing hard to get rid of dust, dirt, grime, and residue. Post construction cleaning services can clean all those hard-to-reach places.

  • Cleaners can safely dispose of project waste (i.e. paint, paint thinners) according to regulations in your municipality.

  • A pro cleaning service has access to industry-grade cleaning products and tools that you may not have.

  • Professional cleaners can give your floors, walls, windows, baseboards, doors, and other parts of your home or commercial building the attention they need. These cleaning experts will be able to get rid of dust and residue that you might miss on your own.

  • Sweeping, mopping and vacuuming as needed to get hardwood, tiles, carpets, and other flooring surfaces clean.

  • Cleaning upholstery on sofas and chairs.

  • Scrubbing dirt, residue, scuff marks or stains off of walls, trim, molding, baseboards, windowsills, and other surfaces.

  • Washing windows and wiping down mirrors so they are sparkling clean.

  • Cleaning air ducts and changing filters, as the previous filters will likely be clogged with particulates from the construction phase.

  • Cleaning appliances in the kitchen, and getting behind and underneath them. Plumbing in both the kitchen and bathroom will be wiped down as well. Also, cabinet interiors, backsplashes, and other surfaces in these rooms will receive a thorough cleaning.

  • Handling removal of caulk, paint, or other splashes or residue.

  • Taking care of any cleaning that needs to be done outdoors. This might involve wiping down outdoor light fixtures, power-washing sidewalks or driveways, sweeping off the porch or deck, and similar tasks.

The list above covers a lot of what goes into post construction cleaning. But there might be other work involved depending on the type of property as well as the renovation or construction that took place.

What Are the Benefits of Working With Post Construction Cleaning Services?

While you may be tempted to try and handle your own deep cleaning after construction, taking your business to a professional team offers many benefits:

  • You can save significant time having a company clean for you. If the project was residential, that means you can move forward with unpacking your boxes, setting up your furniture, and making your house feel like a home. If it was commercial, you can minimize disruptions to your business and get right to work in your newly constructed or renovated building.

  • You can spare yourself some hard work. It isn't easy reaching up, bending down, and scrubbing hard to get rid of dust, dirt, grime, and residue. Post construction cleaning services can clean all those hard-to-reach places.

  • Cleaners can safely dispose of project waste (i.e. paint, paint thinners) according to regulations in your municipality.

  • A pro cleaning service has access to industry-grade cleaning products and tools that you may not have.

  • Professional cleaners can give your floors, walls, windows, baseboards, doors, and other parts of your home or commercial building the attention they need. These cleaning experts will be able to get rid of dust and residue that you might miss on your own.
