What Does Construction Cleanup Involve?

If you are having your new home built or even if you are having a lot of remodeling done, then it will be up to you to have the cleanup done. While the construction company may take care of hauling off the excess large materials, if this is in your contract, there will still be much more cleanup that will be needed before the house will be considered ready for anyone to live in. This article will educate you on the different things construction cleanup involves, so you will see why it may be a good idea for you to hire someone to take care of this for you.

The inside of the home will be vacuumed, swept and mopped well

When a home has just been built or had a good amount of construction done around it, there can be all kinds of things in the carpet and along the baseboard. Some examples include loose carpet tacks, nails, screws and staples. It is obviously very important to make sure all these things are picked up before moving in, so you won't have to worry about anyone stepping on them or kids and pets getting them. Hardfloors will also be swept and mopped, to remove dust and other debris from the construction.

The outside will be picked up, raked and hauled off

Just as with the inside, there will also be things like nails, staples and screws all around the yard. These things need to be raked up and thrown away. Also, there may be packaging materials and other types of trash left lying around that needs to be thrown away. When you have someone come out to clean, they should offer to haul all of this trash off for you as well.

Stickers will be removed and the adhesive will be cleaned off

A construction cleanup person will go around the home's interior and exterior to remove all of the stickers that are still left on new appliances and other things, such as new windows, faucets, etc. After the stickers are removed, there will still be a sticky adhesive and this too will be cleaned off, so you won't have to worry about it attracting dirt and becoming an ugly eyesore.

The windows will be cleaned

There will be fingerprints and dust on newly installed windows and the cleanup crew will also take care of cleaning the windows for you.

Everything will be dusted

With construction generally comes a lot of dust that will cover just about everything. A construction cleanup crew will also go around the house and make sure the dust is cleaned off of everything.
