Ask any foreman or project manager… there’s something special about the end of a construction job. The whirl of saws subsided, the last nail hammered, and a final coat of paint shines. The finished building is a blank canvas, prepped and ready for future occupants.
Well…almost. There’s one last task to complete before handing over the keys to the kingdom: post-construction cleaning.
Because while your site is a gem, construction debris dulls its sparkle. Fortunately, Jidan Cleaning has what it takes to polish your property. Below, we dish the dirt on what to expect during project completion cleaning. Plus, we review the “why” and the “how” of establishing a partnership with white glove, reputable cleaners.
Post-construction cleaning is a robust, top-down process that renders a project site spotless. But don’t let the name deter you: hiring a post-construction crew should happen well before your project concludes. Make sure you do your research, interview prospective companies, and steer clear of any red flags.
When you work with Jidan Cleaning, we’ll tour your space. Then, we’ll craft a construction site cleanup (a.k.a. audit) that includes the following:
Cleanup proceeds in three phases:
Firstly, the “big stuff” is taken care of—leftover materials are scrapped, dirt is swept, and surfaces are wiped. The HVAC system and air vents are cleaned to mitigate particle outflow and safeguard indoor air quality. All windows and glass are uniformly scrubbed down.
We pay special attention to hazardous debris. No one wants to invite negligence—such as stepping on a stray nail or shard of glass! Leftover paints, adhesives, and asbestos-based building materials should also be discarded prior to occupancy. Count on Jidan Cleaning to use clinical-grade equipment and industry-accredited best practices to safely dispose of harmful material.
Finally, the building’s floors will get some pampering. After any major spillage or high-traffic activity, ground cover is treated with heavy-duty wet and dry vacuuming.
Following a deep clean, the focus shifts to touching up smaller nooks and crannies:
Cleaning crews will also zoom in on other high-traffic areas, like kitchens and bathrooms. We ensure hardware is buffed, cabinets and drawers are swept, and appliances are devoid of plastic-wrapped packaging and superficial grime.
Before the space is occupied, a final inspection protects against deviations or irregularities. Performing another AC demo, for instance, ensures vents are clear and ready for use. And we wouldn’t be “in the trenches” without erasing lingering fingerprints or smudges from doors and windows.
