Picture this; you’ve been enduring plastic tarp, dust, loud noises and interruptions around the office for months as a construction team has been doing construction on another wing of your office. The construction team finishes building, collects their equipment and leaves…a mess behind that is! What are you to do? Most construction agreements don’t include a deep “post-construction” clean; they usually just sweep and take their trash when they leave. Sometimes they don’t even do that, but they always leave you with dust, dirt and other debris to handle yourself.
If you’ve just had construction done around your business, consider hiring a team that specializes in post-construction cleaning. The construction company can sweep, but their job is to build, not clean. That’s were you call Servicemaster of Wake County.
Servicemaster of Wake County, and all Servicemaster Clean franchises across the country, have a strict checklist of what areas to focus on during a post-construction clean.
1. 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 not only look filthy, but also cause itchy, irritating reactions for friends, family or guests.
2. Hard Surfaces
All your hard services will be wiped down, including molding and even the walls. Dry dusting is the safest way to remove the particles without damaging the wall’s surface. Cabinets and molding with hard to reach corners are common areas for dust to accumulate so extra attention will be paid to those areas.
3. Air Vents & Filters
Breathing dusty air can lead to allergies and respiratory issues, so we recommend replacing all air filters after a construction job is fully complete.
4. The Little Things
Any furniture or items in the renovation will be need to be wiped, cleaned or washed including ceiling fan blades, light fixtures, lampshades, electronics, small appliances and decorative items.
We don’t blame you if you think this cleaning is tedious and don’t want to do it yourself. That is why Servicemaster of Wake County is here to do it for you! Our expert cleaning crews are available to come over and do the post-construction cleaning for you – quickly, safely and effectively.
