The end is almost in sight, after many months of planning, building and managing, you are almost ready to handover the project to your client. However, one thing stands in your way, the mess created from the construction process.
Conducting a professional final clean on your project before handover can be the difference between an extremely satisfied client and a disappointed one. It can be the difference between a stress free handover or one you’d rather forget. A detailed and thorough clean will highlight and compliment all of the hard work and craftsmanship that has gone into the building over the course of the project.
What is a Builders Clean?
Simply put, it is a clean that removes all trace of building work from a site. Builders Cleans are also known as Post Construction Cleans and After Builders Cleans. Dust, debris and rubbish are generated in great quantities when a building is constructed. It is our job to remove all of this before going on to do the detailed final clean. We follow a 3 step process when conducting our builders cleans to allow for an efficient and effective service
- Initial Clean
At Lighthouse we find the most efficient way to begin cleaning a building is to remove all of the rubbish, debris and the majority of dust first. By doing this we can begin the detailed clean with a blank canvas. There is no use in going straight to a detailed clean when there is still a ton of dust and rubbish within the building.
2. Detailed Clean
Once the site is largely clear of dust and rubbish we can begin to proceed with the detailed clean. We go to great lengths to ensure the project looks it’s best when it’s time to give the client the keys.
- Protection removal from windows, joinery, bathrooms etc
- Window cleaning-interior/exterior including sills, tracks, screens and frames
- Vacuuming/mopping floors
- Detailed vacuuming of the top and inside of joinery etc
- Thorough clean of bathrooms, kitchens, bedrooms etc
- Appliances and furniture
- Blinds, shutters
- Fire alarms, ceiling fans, lights
Throughout the clean we conduct inspections of completed areas to ensure that everything down to the sinkholes and window tracks are spotless. We work with project/site managers to make sure all of their requirements are met.
A final clean can be conducted after the architect and any other persons have completed their inspections/checks. This will normally just be a vacuum of any carpeted areas, a floor mop and a wipe down of any surfaces that may require it.
Driveways, footpaths and other exterior surfaces can be left pretty dirty once construction has been completed. Lighthouse also provide exterior cleaning solutions so that both inside and out look excellent. Whether its pressure washing to remove dirt and marks from the concrete driveway or simply clearing dust from the pathways with a leaf blower, we can help you.
How Long Does a Builders Clean Take and What Areas do you Service?
The length of time taken to do a builders clean is dependent on a number of factors. The main factors being the size of the project, prior cleanliness of trades and types of flooring present in the building.
