After finishing a home renovation project, you're ready to sit back and enjoy your new space, right? Before you can kick up your feet, you need to complete a post-construction cleaning marathon. We make that easy for you, contact our cleaning professionals. Our primary focus will 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've so carefully renovated. Don't let layers of dust leave your freshly renovated home looking old and dingy.
Post-construction Cleaning Checklist
1. Vacuum Carpets & Upholstery
It's 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 look not only filthy, but also cause itchy, irritating reactions for friends, family, or guests. We will vacuum all soft surfaces, paying close attention to the details.
2. Wipe Down Hard Surfaces
We will start by wiping the dust off your walls – yes, even your walls collect dust during construction. Dry dusting is the safest way to remove the particles without damaging a wall's surface. Still, 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. We will take a duster to these areas next. Clean the interior shelves of all cabinets, paying particular attention to those hard-to-reach corners. Wipe off countertops and any other flat surfaces before tackling the dirt and debris that's on or near the floor. Then, we will sweep out any visible dust, and mop your hard floors from wall to wall.
3. Clean Air Vents & Replace Filters
In a large home 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, it is critical to treat the air vents and filters in that space. This will reduce the amount of dust that can spread through the rest of your home. We will remove the vent covers from the surrounding walls and ceilings, clean each one with soap and warm water, and let them dry thoroughly. It is essential to 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!
4. Don’t Forget About the Little Things
We will clean any other furniture or items in the renovation zone for a fully dust-free living space. Here's a quick list of commonly overlooked areas that we will be sure to cover:
- Ceiling fan blades
- Decorative items
- Lamp shades
- Light fixtures
- Small appliances
