Post-construction cleaning is quite the bugbear. There aren’t many other cleaning projects that have the potential to require moving tens of pounds (or more) of debris at a time. It can be time-consuming, work-intensive, and overall a real pain.
Lucky for you, Lemon Blossom Cleaning Services has the expertise to offer some valuable advice for tackling those tough post-construction projects. Whether you’ve just remodeled or you’ve just finished a major commercial project, we’ve got some advice here that you should find valuable.
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Save!
The first tip worth considering is that not all construction “waste” necessarily has to be wasted. The EPA has created a helpful guide to help push those who have finished construction and demolition projects towards better sustainability.
This isn’t just for the planet either. Keeping track of materials you can reuse can save costs later, especially if your project is commercial rather than a one-off home renovation project.
Anything you can save and justify storing means less you need to spend on a project later that can use those materials. It also means less you have to dump!
Post-Construction Cleaning Often Means a Dumpster
If you’re looking at even moderate amounts of debris, you’re going to want to consider a dumpster rental. Regular curbside trash pickup will ignore huge piles of debris and even going to the dump yourself isn’t always feasible. Even a truck is going to struggle with too much weight at once, not to mention some debris isn’t the right shape for safe transport by regular vehicles.
If you’ve just had some light remodeling done, a dumpster may be overkill. But for serious construction, you may have a good few hundred pounds of debris to clear out. The ease and convenience of a rented dumpster can let you transport all the debris nearby and then the dumpster can be taken away all at once!
Then Comes the Detailed Work
Even once you’ve cleared out any large debris, renovations and construction tend to leave a fine dust in the surrounding area’s many cracks and crevices. This makes final cleanup a real pain; be ready to thoroughly go over the nooks and crannies of the construction site if you want everything to look spotless and new, rather than unfinished.
Alternatively, you could hire a service like ours for cleanup. You can even hire us during construction to keep things tidy throughout, allowing the project to be ready for guest or customer eyes almost as soon as the construction finishes up!
